O diba!? Easy!?
Anyway, maisingit ko lang. I’ve mentioned I wanted to make Meringue Kisses. It was successful and here’s my finish product!
I just beat the the left over egg whites, add a little cream of tartar (1/4 tsp), add a little lemon essence and a cup of sugar. Beat it until firm to touch and spoon or pipe out onto a lined baking pan (line with aluminum foil). Then baked it for 1.5 hrs in preheated 200 degrees Celcius oven! Voila! Dino and Liam liked it a lot. They ate 2pcs each right after I took it out from oven. Kung di ko pa pinigilan, baka naka tig 3 pa sila. 🙂
I guess it’s true what they say that babies prefer food that their mommies eat when they are still in our womb. I remember when I was still carrying Liam in my tummy and still having morning sickness (can’t understand why they call it morning sickness when you feel it all day long, anyway) I don’t like eating out. If there’s a time that I should go on field work and have no choice but to eat at restos, only restaurant I can tolerate is Rai Rai Ken. I only like Kamameshi Fried Rice, Miso Soup and California Maki. Other than that… ULK!!
Now that Liam eats with us na, we notice that the only cuisine na hindi kame nahihirapan pakainin sya is Japanese Food! Yes, you read it right, Liam loves it! He loves Miso soup, Misono and any noodles they have. But his favorite is Beef Misono Bowl in Tokyo Joe. So I thought of looking for a recipe in the net. Misono pala is stir fried, kasi all recipes I found is dry. The one we are having in TJ’s is very saucy. Thus, I tried creating my own.
After a few attempts, I think I already got it!
