Good Friday... I woke up early to feed Smeagle and give him his vitamins. I saw a Sumans on the table. It's a kakanin known to many Filipinos. It's just rice cake made of glutinous rice wrapped in palm leaves then steamed. I like my suman to be fried and hot. Put some butter and sugar on top and Voilà! My perfect Pinoy breakfast...
At lunchtime, Mama and I prepared some Fish Fingers and Chicken rolls. I made the white sauce out of cream and mushroom soup. The sauce made the fried stuff more interesting and it enhances the taste of the plain dish.

I went out to have a view outside and I got interested on our love birds. I remember that I used to have a pair when I was a child and I cried so much when they died.
After resting, I went back to the kitchen to cook mirienda. Mom forgot to buy me chorizo so I have no choice but to look for an alternative. I found bacon inside the freezer and I used it. Yes it's good friday but I intentionally used it and put emphasis on the importance of abstaining from sin rather than meat. It's the same thing I cooked last January but mom requested for this one. It's just Bacon and Shrimp cooked in garlic and olive oil then I added chili powder and paprika. I added cheese to improve the taste.

We had a meaningful Good Friday this year. We joined the procession in our parish at night and commemorated our Savior's death on the cross to save us from sin:)
