32 Lunches - Day 24, Dec. 23: Tocino & scrambled egg fried rice

One month backlog!! Argh. Anyway, I have the food photos so let’s finish this 32 Lunches project. Nine more posts to go, lucky 9!

We went on a road trip the 23rd of December—long drive to New Jersey where we would be spending Christmas with R’s aunt. I made fried rice with leftover pork tocino and scrambled eggs, for lunch in the car, so we wouldn’t have to stop and get out to eat. My kids take long finishing their meals so this saves us time too and we get to NJ faster.

Sadly, I forgot to take a photo of our lunch baon. All I have is this 😬

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. 😬

32 Lunches - Day 20: Embutido meatloaf + cucumbers

Christmas seems to be the season for embutido, the Filipino meatloaf which you would usually see roll/cylinder-shaped. This one I make is loaf pan-shaped. I use a recipe from casaveneracion.com, which is the first food/recipe blog I followed (when it was still pinoycook.net). Ate my embutido with cucumbers. Dessert was a homemade brownie (Ghirardelli triple chocolate brownie mix).
