Celebrating 32 Years of God’s Grace and Love

On our 31st, I featured how the lockdown caused by the pandemic kept hubby and me together everyday after many years of having been a weekend wife. I also shared about our close encounters with COVID-19, how we, as a family, battled against it, and how God taught us precious lessons in the midst of our journey.  Today, as we celebrate another year, still amid the pandemic, I’m sharing memories of that day 32 years ago… the day I walked down the aisle limping after sustaining a fracture one week before our wedding day.

Kilawing Labanos (Sauteed Chicken or Pork and Radish) Recipe

In my post some years ago, " A Legacy from my Mother-in-Law ," I wrote about how I learned to cook. I also shared where I got the recipes for the first few dishes I usually made as a young wife. In this post, I mentioned the recipe book,  Masasarap na Lutuing Pilipino ni Aling Charing .    In a sequel post , I featured one dish from Aling Charing’s recipe book, one of my husband's favorite dishes - - - Kilawing Labanos (sauteed pork and radish). Hubby introduced me to this recipe from Aling Charing's old favorite cookbook. From then on, this dish has become one of my signature dishes at home. Through the years of making this dish, I already made some twists from Aling Charing's original recipe.

Camote Tops Ensalada Recipe

In my anniversary  post   last year,   I mentioned about making this Camote Tops Ensalada as one of my pandemic appetizer dishes. It’s a very simple yet healthy veggie salad that you can make with camote tops, onions, tomatoes and dressing.  See how I gave this salad a twist.

Sardines-Veggie Patties (Tortang Sardines with Veggies)

“Today is Metro Manila’s first lockdown anniversary. #COVID19PH”  That’s hubby’s post in Facebook today (March 15, 2021). Yes, it’s been a year since Metro Manila was placed on lockdown. We started working from home, and as health care workers, we physically reported to office two or three times a week.
