It's several weeks past Easter. I remember how I managed to do last minute cramming just to do a few "S" at home... my strategy to appease my husband who was starting to show signs of (okay, you could make your own guess... clue: there were clutters invading his study table which have accumulated through time). I wasn't able to complete the 5S (the Japanese method of workplace organization: seiri for sort , seiton for set in order, seiso for shine, seiketsu for standardize, and shitsuke for sustain). Completing all 5S's was just not feasible for me at that time :( But then, at least, I was able to fill one XL black trash bag with garbage and I was able to sort out the yarns in my stash boxes!!! What an extraordinary accomplishment! :))
While putting away some dusty old magazines and nursing journals, I found Health and Lifestyle December 2009-January 2010 issue. The cover read "Medical Advancements: Audiology, Cardiology, Gastroenterology and Ophthalmology". I couldn't resist reading "Balloons in Cardiology" to refresh my own self and "The Role of Antiplatelet Drugs (Clopidogrel) in Stroke Prevention" which I handed to my husband for him to read because it's one of his daily medicines. Alas and behold, I also found a page (p. 38) featuring a Christmas Salad recipe: Alugbati (Basella alba or Malabar Spinach) salad. This is the same vegetable I featured in my last post, Sauteed Chicken with Lentils and Alugbati.
2 bundles alugbati, blanched
1 piece onion, peeled and chopped
3 pieces tomatoes, chopped
1 inch ginger, peeled and minced
5 pieces calamansi, juiced (I used lemon juice instead)
How to do it... very simple and easy! Just combine all ingredients together in a bowl and serve.
Enjoy the rest of the week!
