32 Lunches - Day 23, Dec. 22: Pork tocino + fried egg

Yummy lunch last Friday! I had homemade pork tocino (this recipe, but halved the marinade ingredients and omitted the food coloring) and fried egg, with tomatoes on the side. Pork tocino is one of the usual cured meats served for breakfast in the Philippines. Who doesn’t love all-day breakfast? We sometimes have tocino for dinner too.

Dessert was a couple of oatmeal raisin chocolate chip cookies, which I baked with A the night before.

32 Lunches - Day 22, Dec. 21: Roasted turkey leg + steamed okra

Dinner leftovers again. I had the turkey with Mang Tomas All-Around Sarsa.

32 Lunches - Day 21, Dec. 20: Chicken ramen

I made chicken ramen for dinner the night before, following a recipe off the box of ramen broth. My ramen had chicken breast fillets, corn, spinach, egg, seaweed, and roasted sesame seeds. And I used instant ramen noodles (just threw out the soup powder packets). There was enough left over for lunch. I may have put too much sesame seeds on this bowl. 😬
