Siomai Recipe - Following Jeanny; and a Lot More

Friday: Grab A Crab Lunch and Taaz Bar Dinner with Friends

I received a text from Bariles, inviting me for lunch with Donna Mae and her family at Grab a Crab. It was my first time meeting Donna's family and they were so friendly too. His dad is an enjoyable conversationalist and one who doesn't look down on people despite their wealthy status in life. They really are a bunch of nice people.

Her Mom, a Farm Town addict like me, even invited us for dinner too, to which we promptly agreed to go and try their premium red coconut wine. Ahhh, twas heavenly.

premiun red coconut wine: in short, bahalina!

I only had a shot though, and I was already red all over my face. Swabe!

Dinner went by with a nice band singing for us at their bar, and although we missed her Mom and Dad to a party they went to, we sure had fun.

Oven roasted chicken and a bunch of steamed talong, okra with bagoong.

Grilled tilapia, ahhh, delectable!

Enjoying a hearty dinner with Donna Mae, Emman, Sir Gilbert

Saturday: The First Shot at Siomai

Weeks ago, I read Jeanny's post and it included a favorite of mine and the hubby's. She has featured her siomai recipe, and i decided of preparing one for the kids and hubby. However, it was not until last Saturday that I ended up mincing carrots, garlic, pepper, and some stuffs for the siomai I did. With all my heart, i followed Jeanny's recipe and all it took me was the aroma in order not to sleep on the wrapping.

Although not that perfect, it was considerably good. And here's the siomai I did. But hop on over to Jeanny's post for the recipe. Thanks Jeanny!

As I watch Hubby, indulging on the freshly steamed siomai, it made me remember about the chili sauce which he so loves. And for the lack of it, I decided to slice some calamansi, and snagged bits of fresh sili from the garden, and presto! Our weekend is one huge siomai overload.

Sunday: Siopao and Pasta Overload

Hubby made logos for Bariles Republic, and in return, he gifted us with Joann's siopao, the best in town. We decided to share it with Gay, and while there, she also made pasta for us. Ooohlala, this is the reason why my tummy is getting bloated everyday, haha!

Us overloaded with siomai, we shared these stuffs with them.

Joann's beef siopao, yummeh!

Gay Carillo's pasta chili fetuccine

So there goes my weekend! Mukhang Fiyesta ba?

Naku, nakakagutom. Risky talaga magbloghop pag lunch time. Palaging nade-defer yung plano ko mag light lunch dahil sa mga nakikita kong food sa blogs. Fave ko siomai. =)

Congrats on the very delicious looking siomai and siopao! Galeng! Alam mo ba na Garandee tried making siopao a couple of years back? Sobrang tigas lumabas na you can actually kill someone if binato mo sya ng siopao ni Garandee. LOL :D
