Paksiw na Pata

Today was mostly spent on………………………………………being lazy.

I watched my favorite series….

indulged on my favorite sweets….

gossiped with my favorite people…

…and had the most delicious Paksiw na Pata for lunch — with extra rice.

Happy Saturday  to you. You looked really good today and I like your hair.

Will tell you all about our trip to Isdaan when I come to my senses tomorrow…..or on monday.

Paksiw na Pata

Paksiw na Pata is also one of my favorite dishes. We sometimes cook it with pineapple tidbits which adds a sweet n’ tart flavor that is just amazing. I love it with lots of dried banana blossoms!
