My gratitude towards your support on my blogs is now just Epic!!! I am very grateful to you Andrew, not only for the "likes" on my posts, encouragement and belief in me, but also for your friendship! :) hoping that someday I will indeed get to cook for you! :)
Will you please?!! Hmm, perhaps I’ll have to book your flight ticket now! ;)
Hi, Andrew! :)
That Prawn Sinigang soup is the easiest soup anyone can cook, and it's both refreshing and warming. You just have to look for Tamarind Sinigang soup packets, I think it's available in most Filipino stores out there. Just boil a decent amount of water enough for 4 servings, add sliced tomatoes, red onions, sliced ginger, infuse the boiling water with these 3 aromatics, then add green finger chilies, add the Tamarind soup mix, according to how sour you want your soup to be, simmer for a 5 minutes to develop the flavor of the broth, then add like 1 pound of prawns and season and finish with fish sauce according to taste. It's a clean and healthy dish. I always cook Sinigang twice a week, either fish or prawn once on a weekday, and beef either every Saturday or Sunday.
Add this to just one of the many delicious recipes you’ve posted! I will pick up some Tamarind soup mix, chilies and fish or prawns and try the dish. And I’ll let you know how it went! ;)
Where has the time gone this year? It is already August and usually by this point, I have already planned a trip out-of-state or have taken the trip. Some late summer commitments and lack of funds will probably keep me from venturing out of my home state of California. So, no big trips for 2011. Sadly, I’ll be staying home for the first time in years. Otherwise, I’d love to travel to somewhere in Europe.
If I traveled anywhere within the U.S., New York City is usually my first choice. With its skyscrapers and other famous landmarks, fabulous food and virtually limitless venues for entertainment, it is probably my favorite city and vacation destination.
