dinuguan? pork blood stew using the innards of the pig? to some it may be a recipe to some zombie movie gone bad but for filipinos, it is a classic dish that uses the blood drained from the lechon and cooked in vinegar, ginger, lemongrass, and other secret ingredients that includes chopped pigs organs better-not-named. and to think i just signed the "end animal cruelty" cause in facebook.
eaten with steaming hot rice and you have an artery clogging, uric acid loaded delicacy. personally, i prefer to use lean ground pork or chicken but i wanted to have the original mix just this time.after lunch i drove my best friend to the philippine medical association headquarters in cebu. silly, no one had a heart attack. my friend totally forgot that it was the national election.
while he was waiting in line to place his vote, i dropped by la marea to get something sweet as i never got any dessert in tia felisa's birthday. my usual selection would have been mango cobbler, apple crumble or the banana cream pie. on the other hand, i wanted something i haven't ordered previously and got the pecan pie with ice cream. committed a sin by eating lechon today, the additional pecan pie couldn't make it more sinful. i hope. argh. gym confession tomorrow. huff and puff.
