Photobucket - Video and Image HostingJulius, who thought initially that Lasang Pinoy meant a drunk Filipino (lol!!) joins us for the first time from Vancouver, Canada and decided to pursue his initial intuition by offering something to make us drunk instead of just tasting like Pinoys. Have a sip of his sumptuous looking Lychee Colada!

Photobucket - Video and Image HostingMira at Mirsbin’s Kitchen laments not having tasted much street-food during her childhood, but her mom made up for it by giving them delectable treats instead. She shares her mom’s mango tart for this round of Lasang Pinoy.

Photobucket - Video and Image HostingLANI of Chibog, Chika, Lakwacha atbp remembers the summers spent with her grandparents in Bulacan and the bounty of summertime treats to be had. Just like many of us who spent summers being fed by our grandparents, these are the most memorable to our senses.

Photobucket - Video and Image HostingThe super mom (my idol) and self-proclaimed perfectionist, Stef of, as usual treats us to a great essay on summer and being Pinoy; which of course means that food always plays an important role. She also promises of a part 2 which we will add to this list as soon as she is finished with it.

Photobucket - Video and Image HostingPhotobucket - Video and Image HostingFinally, you have me your host, who kicked off this event with fried fish and eggplant salad and ended with two posts on Sauteed Chayote Squash which always reminds me of my childhood in Baguio, and a cooling drink of Cantaloupe juice which is perfect for the hot humid days back home and here in the South. Thank you all for joining, it was a great pleasure to host this round of Lasang Pinoy.

    hi jmom, thanks for the super-prompt round-up!!! manang and jmom, ube ice cream was supposed to be my LP 10 entry — i’ve added ube puree to make ice cream before but i wasn’t 100% happy with it — so still tweaking. would love to work on it with both of you:D

    have a nice day!

  9. JMom says:

    Hi chas, I hope you do get a chance to try some of the recipes. Do you have a Filipino store or Oriental stores in Norway?

  10. JMom says:

    Hi Manang! We too are experimenting with ube ice cream. I have been buying the Selecta ube ice cream at the Filipino store here but at $9/half gallon! pikit mata talaga akong bumili, and only when we can’t stand our cravings anymore. I used to make halaya with frozen ube and I was looking for that last weekend, but they were out. We have tried the powder in our ice cream maker, but were not too happy with the result as it was a bit gritty. I will post a recipe as soon as we see some success.

    This is nice since I will manage to check most of the Pinoy food and will probably make all of it if I can just find all the ingredients that is.

  12. Manang says:

    Thanks for this round up of summertime memories. Now I am reminded of what I have been dying to know how to make — ube ice cream using ube flavor (powder) and vanilla ice cream. Any ideas?
    The nearest Pinoy store here does not carry Filipino brand ice creams (not to mention very far!). I am not sure if I can make ube ice cream as I stated above, but I believe the strawberry ice cream is made that way – add strawberry puree to vanilla ice cream.
    If you do have ideas to share regarding this, I would appreciate it a lot!
