Goat Soup!

At my cousin's house warming party, he had many traditional Filipino dishes laid out on a table.  To me, its nice eating these typical Filipino foods at parties like pancit, barbecue, dinuguan, puto, etc.  Then there are times when I'm not excited seeing the same party foods again.  When I looked around the kitchen, I saw something out of the ordinary.  One of my in-laws was near the stove watching two big covered pots that were simmering.  I found out he was making the goat soup called sinampalukang kambing!


One way of making sinampalukang kambing is with a sour broth consisting of sampaloc (tamarind), sampaloc flowers or leaves, a goat's head, leg, and/or some meat, onions, celery, salt, pepper, and MSG.  My relative had made his own sour and bitter version of the soup.  I only tried the sour version (I'll try anything but bitter foods!) and it left me satisfied!  I liked how it was tasty due to being slightly sour and suety.

Stockholm Trip '17

Over a month ago, my husband and I embarked on our first trip to Europe!!! We were there for a couple weeks and spent our time exploring the capital cities of Norway, Denmark, and Sweden.  The two things I found most captivating was the art, especially the architecture, and the food!  Our trip started in Oslo, Norway and Copenhagen, Denmark (check out the links at the end of the post for more details) and ended our Euro trip in Stockholm, Sweden: AB CafĂ© Never in my whole life did I eat pastries and drink coffee every morning until I arrived in Europe! A lot of pastries I had were hearty which left me wanting to have at least one daily.  In the neighborhood near where we were staying at was  AB CafĂ© .  This is a small, cozy cafe where you can have a small bite to eat and drink before you start your day.  Pictured below is their Key Lime Sandwich, latte, and a bullar (sweet bun).  It was a nice fika !
