I had a craving for Filipino food, so I made chicken adobo, bacon and LaBatt Blue.
I love the salty combination of bacon, soy sauce, and patis. I also added hominy.
My kid cut up green onions as a garnish. We served everything over white rice.
I found myself cooking for comfort. A few weeks ago, I had a break from (temporary) single parenting when my husband was on the other side of the country for a death in the family.
My kid was out of the house for movie night with new and old friends.
When I had the house to myself, I cooked for comfort. I made a creamy, spice sauce of gochujang, garlic, butter and heavy cream. I added spinach, corn and cheese tortellini. Mixing up all this ingredients made eased my aching heart. Cooking helped me feel better after spending a week of worrying and juggling teaching, writing and taking care of my kid. He just wanted to know what happened to his daddy.
Slow cooker Cuban mojo pork with cilantro lime rice and black beans.
My first attempt at Cuban mojo pork. I used this recipe from Lemon Blossoms. I started off cooking pork shoulder with all the ingredients in a slow cooker. Then got the meat crispy in the oven. So tasty!
I think Iâ€™ll try marinating the pork shoulder overnight, next time.
I also needed a tasty bowl of rice to go with Cuban mojo pork. I went to Google and found an easy recipe for Cilantro Lime Rice by Simply Recipes.
It’s really good!
Browning the rice with minced garlic added another layer of umami.
This is my new favorite rice dish.
