I think you’ll be seeing a lot of SiLog recipes on this blog from now on. There’s a tendency for me to favor easy-to-cook recipes for breakfast and lunch these days. I’m still not over all the things that’s been “attacking” me lately. With SiLog meals all I have to do is change the viand to make it different.
To my non-Filipino friends, SILOG is a term that has been coined from the Filipino breakfast staple SInangag (garlic fried rice) and itLOG (egg). Another syllable is prefixed in it, usually the first syllable of another viand/dish that comes with the garlic fried rice and egg. In this case, it’s LONG from LONGganisa, our local version of sausage. Hence, LongSiLog.
SiLog meals are easy to prepare and heavy enough on the tummy. This will help provide more energy for the day and wake up my sleepyhead of a husband and daughter. We eat breakfast at 5:30am and kids like Ykaie has a tendency to eat sloooooowly when breakfast is that early. But she loves rice meals, so we eat rice breakfast almost four times a week — and that’s on weekdays. So much for that “less carbs” thinking..
I used ready-made Longganisa for this LongSiLog meal, one which we bought from our suki in Malabon, but I’m planning to make a homemade recipe as soon as possible — like after we move and get settled in our new home which I think is gonna be next month. (Crossing my fingers on this one!) Almost all my kitchen gadgets are kept in boxes these days and I sometimes get too lazy to take them out or find which box contains which kitchen gadget. Besides, I’m kinda busy with Proper Nouns and Common Nouns, and loom bands, and the house…. and with peanutbutter♥.
No recipe for this post. I just fried out the ready-made skinless Longganisa, made sunny side -up egg, and top it over garlic fried rice. I’ll save the recipe for garlic fried rice on the next post.
