Food: Farmhouse Breakfast
During the long weekend, we all went to my parents' farmhouse to unwind.
It is such a relaxing space surrounded by plants and trees. If you want to read more about this one farmhouse, here is a previous post about it.
While we were there, we were pampered with yummy comfort food every single day. For the most important meal of the day, we had our own typical farmhouse breakfast.
The pancakes were so fluffy. You know the secret to thick, fluffy pancakes? Do not over beat the batter.
Okay, you'd think that this is part of ordinary Filipino breakfast food. No, not at all. It is quite the opposite. These pancakes are actually out of place. They were for Allie. Hahaha.
We had sunny-side-up eggs, which I did not take a picture of, and we had fried broken eggs. They look weird but they are good.
We also had dried fish and squid. This is what I missed most, especially the ones that they called danggit.
You buy them salted and dried from the market. Then you fry them in oil to make them super crispy and crunchy. Because they are salty, I like to soak them in vinegar and eat them with steamed rice. Yummy!
We also had some talbos ng kamote or sweet potato leaves that were freshly picked from the farm. They were so crisp! We ate them with fresh tomatoes and some traditional Pangasinan fish sauce (bagoong).
So there you have it. More farmhouse food soon!
