How Do You Like Your Eggs?


Hubby and I went to Filler Up! Restaurant in Model T. Hotel and Casino for breakfast today. I ordered Chicken Fried Steak and Eggs and a cup of hot tea. Hubby ordered breakfast skillet and coffee. 

When the waitress asked me how I would like my eggs, I wasn't able to answer her right away because I was busy with my phone watching Ms. World 2013 Megan Young's crowning moment so I asked hubby, "Mahal, how?" He answered, "Over-easy" which was what I really wanted too.

When the foods were served, I noticed that the eggs were scrambled but I was too starving to make a comment. In between my chewing, I asked hubby, "Mahal, these are scrambled right? I was referring to my eggs. He said, "Yes." I said, "And, I ordered over-easy, right?" He answered, "Yes".

All of a sudden, the waitress rushed in and excused herself for bothering us, and talked to me that the over-easy eggs are coming. In my mind, I was like, "How did she know that we were talking about it?" So I asked her, "Did you hear it when I asked my husband about it?" She said, "The Manager did when he passed by your table". I told her not to bring the eggs, the scrambled was okay and that I am almost done eating already. And that it's fine with me, no worries. 

I was in the mood that time because of Megan Young's victory which I was thinking, my victory too, char!

She left and came back with the bill and said, "This is for the breakfast skillet. We got your Chicken Fried Steak and Eggs". Meaning, I don't have to pay for my foods. I told her they don't need to do that because it is really okay with me and the scrambled eggs are just fine. She insisted and I thanked her :)

To the Manager of Filler Up! Restaurant in Model T. Hotel and Casino, "Cheers" to you! Good job!

Thanks for dropping by :)

Home Made Salted Eggs with Tomatoes

Homemade Salted Eggs and Tomatoes

Nope, I did not make them. 

They are made by Ate Sol, the most generous and most kind Pinay in Winnemucca :) Thanks to her. The eggs are just perfect! And way ever better than what is available in the market.

Are you wondering if they are duck eggs? Yes, they are! Ate Sol bought them  for $2.50 a dozen. They are huge in size and fresh! She bought them from a local lady that has farm somewhere :) The lady also sells fresh chicken eggs for the same price.

Ain't it cool when somebody can make salted eggs outside Pinas? Pretty cool, huh?

Thanks for dropping by!

Plantain Banana Turon

Crispy Banana Plantain Turon

One of the Pinoy foods that I used to miss back home is banana turon made of "karnaba" variety.

Jovy, a Pinay-American who just moved-in to Winnemucca from Las Vegas and who eventually became a friend, taught me to use plantain in lieu of "karnaba". Plantain is a kind of banana that is ready to use when the skin turns darker like blackish, something like that :) When I tried it, it tasted like turon in Pinas!

Since then, I did not miss turon anymore :) As long as I have lumpia wrapper in my freezer and a plantain in the grocery store, I can make banana turon anytime I want.

If you are not in Pinas like me, and you are craving banana turon, go ahead make one out of banana plantain! Just make sure you have a lumpia wrapper, okay?

You have a good one!

Have You Ever Heard About Pickled Okra Before?

Hand Packed Crispy Okra Pickles

Do you like Okra but can't find fresh ones  here in US? Look for pickled ones! They are really good! 

My teenagers err twenty-agers and I discovered pickled okra accidentally in WalMart (when they came to visit last April) while looking for pickled cucumber. They didn't like it but I did. I can eat the whole jar! 

Try them and tell me what you think. 

By the way, I am inviting you to join my Birthday Giveaway Promo to win a pair of gorgeous Juicy Couture sunglasses. Just follow the instructions.

Thank you! Have a good one!
