Who Makes The More Delicious Version

I can’t remember if I have talked about it already, but still I would like to share this. You see our daughter told us that she and her boyfriend would sometimes compare the delicious cookings of their moms . One particular dish is the kare-kare (oxtail in peanut sauce) which is the favorite of my daughter. I cook it whenever she’s home for a vacation. Last year, her boyfriend came with her for a vacation at the house. So, I cooked for lunch the kare-kare, which she boasts to her boyfriend. So when the boyfriend ate it, he said he agreed my kare-kare is much tastier to her grandmom’s. I can’t be sure if it’s the truth but this proved it; There was a left-over kare-kare from lunch. Before dinner that night , they both asked if there was a leftover of it and was so glad that there is and I reheated it in the microwave and they ate it again for dinner, in addition to the other foods I cooked for dinner. I feel proud that at least , they both liked my kare-kare so much but of course my hubby too. What dish of yours is your child’s favorite? Note: The picture of kare-kare is from google

@SIMPLYD I'm curious about that kind of adobo. Here in Luzon, we prefer the adobo with more soy sauce. But my late dad and his family cook adobo quite differently -- with more salt and vinegar. It actually tastes a bit like lechon kawali but it's more flavorful and moist. Do you have a recipe?

@almostoveryou That's it - with salt and vinegar. Indeed it tastes like lechon kawali. It's actually very simple to make, Just boil it and put enough salt and vinegar until it is tender then put it in a pan with oil and saute it a bit with lots of garlic and ground pepper until golden brown. Yummy!

@SIMPLYD hahaha! my lady, do you know when was the very first time that i tasted kare-kare? a suitor of mine, a Pinoy who is the brother of the boyfriend (now husband) of my classmate invited me for lunch. this man is an engineer and worked in Australia, he courted me by snail mail. when the time came that we meet, the lunch date came (i was on night shift in the secondary hospital as staff nurse (pa noon). so i, my sister, and my kid brother went, only to find out he was shorter than me. kare-kare, that is why i will never forget this dish. it brings me happy memories. oh, by the way, he was in elevator shoes, and when he wanted us to play bowling, he borrowed the rubber shoes of his cousin--all the more he became shorter than me. hahaha!

@epiffanie No , i haven't . But last night, in my batchmates' house where we practiced our high school batchmates dance for the alumni homecoming, thatl's one of the viands her maid cooked for our dinner. It's with prawns. crabs and meat. Oh my, so delicious but i know the prawsn and crabs are so cholesterol laden. I ate the "fat" of the crab and shrimp. I haven't done that in many many months. ha ha ha

I was never able to have kids. But used to have my Cousins and my god daughter who there for a long time while they were growing up used to come and live at times with me, and then go back to their moms. One of the dishes I used to make all the time that they loved is a Noodle casserole dish used with Cans or Vegetable soup and noodles. At the time the soup was as thick as like Beef stew is. Not as good now with the thinner soups.
