Tapioca was not feeling well this morning. He went to the clinic and got him self checked. The doctor said his blood pressure went up. Uh-oh. I wanted to tell him "I told you so" but he's feeling really bad already knowing what these would lead to. This is serious. This treacherous and silent attacker has killed millions of lives including my father and his siblings.

After shift we went straight home and talked about serious things. We talked about what we should and should not do to prevent this. I mean there's no way to stop this anymore only prevention, right? So we were talking about the situation in serious mode only to find out what worried him the most. His love for meat and all it's fatty evilness. It pissed him off. He hated to say goodbye to the divine glory of beefy goodness, porkyliciousness, hearty chicken and anything meat lovers will die for. I was like, "What the heck?!?!" It pissed me off, too.

So there goes the helluva of the serious mode. I am not liking this. But the battles is not yet over. So help us God.


The Experiment

Saturday, April 2, 2011

Thirdy’s Mom had been telling me how she would like to cook almondigas for her family. And I thought I would love try that too. Being a soup person that I am, I did not hesitate and went to check Connie’s website (my ever reliable Pinoycook.net) for the almondigas recipe.

I listed up all the ingredients on my notepad then Tapioca and I headed to the supermarket. When we got home, we started preparing all the things we needed. But wait, we are not ready to cook yet. From preparation we kept on arguing how things are gonna be done like chopping up all the veggies, setting the meat balls, etc. First, he didn’t want to wash the ground pork because he thought we wouldn’t be able to shape them into balls. But I washed them anyway and still we managed to shape them into balls. Then I added lots of water into the pot. He was not sure about it because we just bought a small pack of tomato paste and he thought that will make the soup diluted. Then the vermicelli noodles. I just wanted to add enough noodles because it will suck out all the water. But he thought otherwise and kept on telling me to put the entire pack of noodles, and it's a huge pack by the way, into the pot. And I did. I threw all the vermicelli noodles into the pot and soon enough all the water was gone. And the end result was a disaster. I'm sorry but I'm not gonna put pictures of the end result. We learned our lesson. We have different cooking techniques and beliefs. Anyhow, there’s always a next time.

See those meal balls on the photo? They looked adorable, noh? and it sparked some ideas on Tapioca. Will post that idea next time.
