Mommy Meals

It's a challenge to prepare a full meal when you're a stay at home mom with chores to do and a baby to run after. My friend Paz and I used to exchange stories of what we eat for lunch and usually, it's leftovers or a sandwich, because our kids can be demanding. But well, lucky Paz is now in HK and has two nannies to help her out! Yeah, she's living the life of a tai tai while I am still slumming it out here, hahaha!

But lately, I have been trying to whip out easy, yummy, appealing meals, because eating makes me happy!

Grilled cheese sandwich with a side of herb salad and potato chips (a little bit charred because I was washing dishes while grilling the sandwich, haha!)

Soft taco filled with refried beans, ground beef, cheese, sour cream, homemade salsa, herb salad greens with a side of nachos and guacamole

Looks right out of a deli and super fast to prepare too! Takes me 5 minutes max. My homemade salsa recipe is from my chef/friend Bunnee Santos! I couldn't remember her exact recipe, so I just winged it. Here is my version:

In a bowl, mix chopped:
- cilantro (a small bunch)
- onions
- tomatoes
- jalapeno peppers

Squirt the lime juice off a whole lime. Toss. Season with salt (my cousin Dex uses patis/fish sauce), ground black pepper and tabasco. Voila! Fresh, crunchy and chunky salsa!
