A Typical Middle-Class Filipino Breakfast


Wazzup Pilipinas!

Breakfast has been said as the most important meal of the day. I believe that because it is during the beginning if the day when we consume more of our energy trying to survive in this concrete jungle in Metro Manila. So we eat plenty in the morning then gradually decreasing throughout the rest of the day.

This morning we're having
Lucban longganisa for breakfast. We bought it from Hometown Goodies and Services that also sells Pinoy Kakanin like Pancit Habhab, Buko Pie and Pancit Habhab online from their Facebook page.

What attracted us to it was the native Filipino packaging they use made from Pandan leaves. I've seen posts selling pots made out of pandan leaves, and also reached out to them for my plants.







So I had two interests when I ordered for Hometown Goodies' food products. One was because I was craving for something to eat that I don't encounter everyday. The food business is mostly full of foreign-inspired dishes, and not so many are selling our own Pinoy food or they are not popular because they have been overtaken by foreign brands.

Second was because of their packaging. Not only is it visually appealing, it's the same pot material I was longing for my plants.

So needless to say, it was a feast for us the day the food was delivered.

If you want to know my review about the food, go to our YouTube channel or Facebook page to know more.


Now going back to our breakfast.

How do you cook your longganisa? Just like how we cook tocino, my wife pours in a bit of water and let it boil first until water is gone, then use it's own oil to fry it.



Nagluto rin kami ng crispy boneless dilis bought from a neighbor who also sells within our building's group chat. Ang kuwento ay tinda yun ng one of her students. Tumutulong lang din siya.

Ganoon lang talaga, tulungan and support each other. Patronize our own products sold by Filipino SMEs especially the online sellers who could be people who lost their jobs or business during this pandemic.

Lalo na kapag mga Pinoy foods ang kanilang binebenta. It' more fun in the Philippines if uunahin natin kapwa nating Filipino.



To complete our breakfast, (actually brunch since this is good until lunch time), aside from the Lucban longganisa and crispy boneless dilis (dried anchovies), inilabas na rin at reheated in the microwave oven yung mga leftover pancit habhab at sinukmani (for panghimagas), samahan ng mainit na kape at saging.

This is what we normally do with leftovers if bagay naman for almusal. We also make it a point na mayroon kaming prutas.

Yung buko pie naubos na kahapon pa. We gave some to our neighbors along with the pancit habhab and sinukmani yesterday. We often do that everytime our cooked food is more than enough for us.

This setup is for the two of us only since our kids are still asleep. They sleep late in the evening and wake up late in the day, so kami lang ng wife ko madalas magkasalo sa almusal. Hindi rin namin nauubos madalas kaya lang nakakapanghinayang dahil baka mapanis lang, kaya inuubos na rin namin o binibigay sa mga pusang gala. We don't own the cats, doon lang sa amin palaging tumatambay.

Pero dahil bagong luto yung Lucban longganisa, may naka reserve na para sa kanila...I'm referring to our kids, not the cats...lol

One of the reasons bakit kami tumataba dahil kami ang taga ubos ng tira-tira. I believe most parents, especially from the middle or lower class, think this way. Our kids also rarely eat leftovers because my wife keeps cooking new viands for them. Syempre yung bagong luto uunahin nila.

Bihira rin kami magluto at kumain ng dinner, unless may masarap na food around.

This is how we eat during normal times, and may soon change under the new normal unless this Covid-19 pandemic becomes no more but a ssickening memory.
