Thank you all who participated in this round of Lasang Pinoy. What a great treat it was to continue reminiscing about summers past and at the same time learn about so many coolers and refreshing recipes. Visit these great bloggers to read about their summer experiences and maybe even find a recipe you would like to try.
A sunny summer breakfast by afbeercan of Eat Matters presents Roasted Pork loin Hash with Raspberry Poached Egg and a second post on relaxing with Stella Artois (and no, Stella is not a girl), and reading a good book under a tree.
Julius, 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!
Ces of essenCes has more cooling refreshments and memories of summers spent playing childhood games. See if you remember any of the games yourself. For your enjoyment she offers the mouth watering green mango shake and dalandan juice. Ces also offers another cooler, mais con hielo.
As a last hurrah to the end of summer in the Philippines, Macky of The Edible Garden contributes Batida, a coconut drink that is sure to mellow you out while you sit and gaze at the beach one last time.
Mira 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.
LANI 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.
The super mom (my idol) and self-proclaimed perfectionist, Stef of Stefoodie.net, 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.
Finally, 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.
Join us again for the next round, watch the website for the next topic.
