For this month’s Kulinarya challenge our host’s Oggie of I can do that, Chef Teodore of Chef by Day, Boyet of Real and Grill and Ray of Wok with Ray asked the group to prepare something patriotic – use the colors of our Philippine Flag.
Blue! I for the love of Pinoy food can’t think of anything blue.
I’ve been meaning to cook Kaldereta using pork, you can also use Chicken, Beef or Lamb. So while cutting the veggies I realized that I had all the colors required for the challenge except for blue. Little V approached me and ask if he can help me cook, I told him to help mama look for something blue that we can eat…he gave me his blue fork.
I told V that we can’t eat fork he just replied – “Mama, fork help us eat”
