The nasty weather today had me in hibernation. Not that I don’t do it often, but all the more I wanted to just stay indoors. It has been raining all night, and I woke up to a dark, dreary, rainy day with those scary thunder.
On a day like today, I remembered to reach for this
for my afternoon snack hehe. And yes, it satisfied and is so comforting. For the non Pinoys out there that are not familiar with what is in the picture, this is instant mami noodles Filipino style. Since it’s instant, all I did was add hot water. The flavor by the way is La Paz Batchoy .
I have about 20 containers of different flavors of this instant noodles along with a lot of instant pancit canton and canned vegetable dishes (laing,guinataang ampalaya, etc.) . I hoarded them from Italy!!!! Milan to be exact. I do not come across these goodies that often in the Filipino store in New York, thus whenever I see them anywhere, I take the chance. When we went to Aruba last year, I did the same thing.
I may adore Japanese food, love Italian dishes, go for Thai and French foods every now and then, not to forget American foods, but there is one cuisine I will always go back to and crave for forever: PINOY foods.
