April showers

Red Velvet Cake

Sorry for not having posted about food the past few weeks. I was really busy, I even failed to eat at times. So last night, the girls and I had a night out to celebrate Ericke’s birthday. The boys were in La Union for Brandon’s first downhill competition, where he placed 12th.

Saramsam was Ericke’s choice. We got our favorite ukoy with sukang Iloko dip and tunaquitos. The three had chicken creamy pesto pasta with thyme bread and olive oil-balsamic vinegar and Parmesan dip, while I had minestrone Milanese soup and caldereta Spañola with turmeric rice. It felt so good to be back. Even if the place was fully packed, the service was excellent as usual. The food, yummy as ever, especially the tunaquitos!

Happy Birthday, Ericke!

Fiery Tunaquitos

Just a quick post. In reality, I ordered and ate sans rival first. Then I remembered I haven’t tasted the tunaquitos yet. A stroke of luck, Saramsam had them that evening. Mini taco shells loaded with tuna kilaw (ceviche) and a jolt of wasabi. Just so damn provocative!! My friend and blog reader Tricia was so right. (Thanks, dear, for the tip.)

A slice of the pie

There are a million things I’m thankful for and one of them is having angels. After receiving her paycheck, Ericke treated the entire family to a longaniza pizza night out at Saramsam. (I thought I’d finally be able to try the Tunaquitos, but they were unavailable.)
When grown-up children are starting to build a life of their own, it feels so good to know that you’re part of that life.
