Last April, me and my friend made a big bath of Menudo for a funeral. It wasn't my recipe so I don't have any recipe to post here. It was really tiring to make a really big batch of food but I guess  better get used to it if I want to work in a restaurant. It was good though and good thing our ratio of meat per vegetable was equal so everybody loved it. Here are some pics of the Menudo we cooked.
My friend stirring the Menudo and yeah that's a large pan... LOL

What we did afterwards was put the Menudo in these Styrofoam containers. 50 of them to be exact and there's a lot of Menudo left! So we ate it for lunch. 

It was really tiring yet fun cooking these large quantity of food. If anyone offered me to do the catering for them, I might give it a try! (^_^) 

Salisbury Steak

This one recipe is something I always wanted to try because it is so easy to do and almost everybody loves it. I'm saying almost because not all people at home are a fan of this. I guess it's my fault though. The patty was really big and th sauce was a little salty. Oh well. Gotta learn from mistakes! But nevertheless my cousin loved it and asked for a second serving. Here is my recipe of Salisbury Steak that I got from my cookbook. Enjoy.

Salisbury Steak

½ cup               breadcrumbs
1 kg                 ground sirloin
1                      onion, finely chopped
2                      eggs, lightly beaten
1                      305-gram can cream of mushroom soup
¼ tsp                liquid seasoning
1 cup               sliced button mushrooms or two 198-gram cans mushroom pieces and stems, drained (reserve the liquid)
2-4 tbsp           butter

1. In a mixing bowl, combine breadcrumbs, sirloin, onions, and eggs. Mix well.
2. Shape the beef mixture into 8 patties. Let stand while making the mushroom sauce.
3. In a saucepan, combine soup, liquid seasoning, mushrooms, and ¼ cup reserved mushroom liquid. Heat and simmer until mixture is smooth, stirring occasionally, about 3 minutes.
4. In a large skillet, melt butter and brown the patties 2 or 3 at a time, about 2-3 minutes on each side or until cooked to desired doneness. Do not overcrowd patties. Patties will shrink as they cook.
5. Transfer cooked patties to individual plates and pour mushroom mixture over patties.

Food Blogging Again

I know, I know. It's been a long time since my last post. I can say that life is busy or I got bored or I got lazy or I let my personal life come in the way of my dream. The truth is I got scared. Scared that I might actually be good at  this and I'm scared what would happen if I finally did what I always wanted. What would happen next?
Maybe that's the reason why I always gave up or why would someone gave up on me. Nevertheless, I know I have to finish what I started. I know I have to continue pursuing my dream. After all, what would I be without my dream?
A lot of things happen in the past couple of months (food wise) and I am sharing them all now. It's nice doing this and sharing my love of food to everybody. I know I don't have many readers and most of them are my friends.
But I'm not doing this for them. I'm doing this for me.
I have found my passion now and it is time to share it to the world. 
I know I'm not the most talented chef or the greatest foodie there is out there. All I know is that I can share what I know and what I learn from food.
I hope you guys can learn from this blog. My aim is not to be the most popular or to be most loved.
I just want to write about food. And that's what matter most for me.
Keen on eating and blogging!!!
