No housekeeper for a week now. And I'm the designated cook. I cook 3 dishes every night so that the kids will just reheat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner the following day. Gaaad it is so tiring. But so far, they're loving my pork adobo, chicken adobo with lemongrass and chicken stew. I also had the usual sinigang and nilaga. As for the other dishes -- well, they're all experimental... and not all experiments turn out to be a success.
By the way, thanks to the internet for the recipes, particularly this site: http://www.pinoycook.net
Manang, I miss you. I hope you come back tomorrow as you promised. Not like the other manang who just left us, along with her loans from the neighbors. Aargh.
