Is there anything more satisfying on Sunday afternoon than a steamy bowl of arroz caldo?
Well, I can think of something else that's steamy and satisfying but I have been craving arroz caldo. I saw saffron in the store the other day, and grabbed it as well as fish sauce (which is so pricey!). I don't have the exact recipe, but I tried to remember how my mother prepares it. It turned out good! So now I am a happy camper, full and my desire satisfied :)
One thing about living in a foreign land, some things that you used to know are not available or don't exist at all. Here, there's no such thing as almusalan ni aling nena where you can buy an order of lugaw, sopas, etc. Either you keep on craving or diy (do it yourself). Of course you can always go to restaurant and there's an abundant selection of food in the store, but when you crave something native, what else can you do??
Well it's already 3:30pm. We might go to St. Pete beach later. I'll leave you with a few pictures taken last week at the Pier, of a big turtle and the beautiful but mean looking pelicans :)
