LAUYA (PORK SOUP) DINNER FOR TWO

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

If you want some Filipino inspired dinner for two, I got a soup for you if you love pork, that will make you feel warm and fuzzy all over, you and your special someone will have plenty of leftovers, and you’ll tell all of your friends about it. Lauya (Lah ooo yah) is a soup made of pork stock, herbs and spices, and huge cuts of pork shoulder, cooked tender, with cabbage. Served with hot white rice, this is an entree of all entrees. First I’ll start you off with our culture call Lumpia (Loom Pee Ah), which is fried egg rolls with a chicken and veggie filling, served with a garlic and vinegar dip. Then the Lauya with rice, and after that, you’ll feast on a dessert Bibinka (Mochi Rice cake filled with yummy stuff, like coconut milk and butter, and raw sugar) This my friends is our comfort food. Different but exciting if you’ve never had Filipino soups before. Let’s all hookup in 2015!!!

SOMETHING AMERICAN FOR TWO

SAMSUNG

Sometimes I receive calls from couples that want a very simple dinner, and I mean simple like what their mom or grandma would make. Can do. How about a simple tossed green salad with some quality dinner rolls with real melted drawn butter? And some garlic mashed potatoes, with a piping hot juicy all beef meatloaf with a pan gravy all from scratch? And then some apple pie from a quality bakery? Simple sometimes rocks!

DINNERS FOR TWO

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Comfort Foods for two in your own home, foods that are just good and sharing it with that special someone is even better, your other half, your significant other. Sharing a good appetizer, salad, soup, and a couple of wok cooked entrees, and a homemade dessert, maybe some wine.

My custom Chinese Style/Filipino American Style will leave you feeling full and satisfied. I been working on steamed rice noodles, Luk Fun, Chow Fun, Xiao Lun…Call this my specialty as we head into 2015.

I can start you off with a warm soup, like a Japanese style Miso, white (shiro) or aka (red), with ebi (shrimp) inside to warm you up. And a good Sake to start you off.

Then I can do a Kung Pao Chicken with wide Luk Fun noodles, for entree no. 1, and following that, maybe a platter of Xiao Lun (mini round Luk Fun with choice of pork, beef, seafood, chicken) served with a dip, something spicy, sweet and sour or something in between. (I always cook white stick rice as a side)

And for dessert some baked mochi with chocolate sauce. It will be a noodle evening, sure to fill you up, and the portions will be big enough for leftovers if you both don’t eat it up in the evening, perfect for the next day’s lunch just warm it up in the microwave.

Hope to see you sometime soon.
