Camote Tops Salad

My family and I together with another Filipina friend traveled to Stockton, California and on our way home, we dropped by at the Seafoods City in Sacramento. We had lunch at Chowking, bought some mamons from Red Ribbon, done some grocery and produce shopping, and had a take out from Jollibee. 

I bought a bunch of camote tops, at first I had second thoughts because it says in the sign, "yam tops", a lady said that camote or sweet potato and yam are kinda the same.

I made a Filipino salad out of the bunch and it was heaven! I regretted why I only grabbed 1 bunch. I saved 3 stems though and put them in a glass with water and they already have leaves. I wish it was summer already so that I could plant them outside. 

Thank you for dropping by. Have a good one!

Pre-seasoned Rotisserie Chicken

It was my last day off today and I just lazed around, doing nothing. I wanted an easy meal for dinner so I thawed a pre- seasoned (lemon and pepper) whole chicken from Gold N Plump and put onto rotisserie bar.

My son was very excited. I was excited myself too. We haven't had rotisserie chicken for quite some time now. After 2 hours, the chicken was done. Look at the unedited photo, it looks yummy, yeah?  

But the sad truth is, after I have tasted it... you know the saying, "Beauty is only skin deep"? Yep, that's how it turned out. It's salty and no lemony and peppery taste at all. Right now, I am thinking what is the best way to use it. Maybe I would make chicken caesar salad tomorrow for lunch.

Next time, I would make my own rotisserie rub  and I hope it is going to be good if not perfect.

Thank you for dropping by. Have a good  one!
