Pinakbet

For dinner, W made pinakbet (Canadian style!). J didn't like bitter melon at all, but bravely swallowed six pieces down. I'm not too fond of bitter melon myself, but salt and other vegetables make it doable. It was so nice of W. to make a point of cooking something Filipino, though! I can't wait to introduce them to arroz caldo. I should do that while it's still cold.

Also, found Nissin's Spicy Chicken Yakisoba at the No Frills supermarket. The next time I feel homesick for the Philippines, you know what I'm going to eat...
