What's for Breakfast? Filipino Style

For my Filipino readers, I know what you're thinking!
"Mainit na Pandesal! Sarap" :>

Every morning my father used to go on a bicycling exercise and would buy some "pandesal" from Pan de Manila on his way home.  I always remind him to check if we still have coco jam before going to sleep. (coz always wake up late. Haha.) I still like "pandesal" without coco jam but it's much better. Right? Especially with hot coffee! Yuuum! I honestly don't know the English term for pandesal. But I googled it. bleh! Salt Bread or Bread of salt. LOL-ed. It's not salty!
I used to prepare it buy slicing the bread in half (horizontally) and fill it with 1 spoon full coco jam.

Oh, one piece "pandesal" costs P6.00 and P68.00 for the jam.

Here's a picture of  "Lugaw/Goto", Porridge or congee! It is a soft boiled rice cooked in a meat broth. I eat it with boiled egg or "isaw" and you can serve it with "tokwa't baboy" on the side!

In our country, rice is a staple food. So we Filipinos have learned how to cook it in many ways. :)

The last photo is my childhood favorite food. "Sopas" more like a soup with elbow macaroni, carrots, some chicken breasts, and evaporated milk. (That's all I know, you can search the recipe on-line.)

My grandma used to cook some when I was in Pre-school. She was working in our school canteen that time. And I love it! I always wait for our school bell to ring for recess time. Haha.

So, that's it! These are the foods I look forward to when I wake up in the morning. Remember, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. :D

Oh, check out my very own hand crafted ANGRY BIRDS dangling earrings.
Aren't they adorable? :)

How about you? What's your favorite breakfast food? :D
Hugs and kisses,
