Chopsuey is one of the veggie staples in most, if not all, Filipino homes. There are many versions of chopsuey and it all depends on: how people like it, the budget, and sometimes, the number of people who are going to eat the chopsuey. Here at home, most of the time I cook chopsuey just with chicken liver. There are times when I put fried chinese sausage and shiitake mushroom. There are times when there are lesser variety of veggies. But this is the first time I’ve ever tried it with quail eggs. I think those little eggs makes it more special and delicious.
In other news, just as I thought this week was off to a great start, Twinkle had a fever on midnight last Monday. She’s been having a stuffy nose and was sneezing a lot. I’m suspecting the fever was because of colds. I’ve given her medicine and it seems to be working. She’s still extra clingy, though and doesn’t want me anywhere near my laptop. She wants me only at her side, or carrying her and hugging at all times.
She even doesn’t want me cooking and would fetch me from the kitchen to go with her in the living room and watch cartoons. Kapag naglalambing nga naman ang babies natin, mommies!
Anyway, this Chopsuey with Quail Eggs was lunch and it certainly hit one of our goals this year which is to add more veggies to our family’s diet.
