Rainy Days Comfort Food!

It's rainy season once again Cute-rs, and what's best during these times...comfort food!


1. Arroz Caldo - the first on my list.  Congee or "Lugaw" is boiled rice with ginger, garlic, spring onion and chicken.


2. Goto - similar with Arroz Caldo. It has the same goodness of congee without the chicken and replaced it with ox tripe and egg. Don't forget the fish sauce and kalamansi.


3. Lomi - this is a specialty from my Hometown, Batangas! Omg! In such a gloomy weather like this I miss this one so bad!


4. La Paz Batchoy - this is an old favorite of many. It consists of a noodle soup made with pork organs, crushed pork cracklings, chicken stock, beef loin and round noodles.


5. Sopas - if you know Sopas, then you are a true-blue Filipino. This menu has been in every dining table in Filipino family. It's part of a tradition from our table to our tummy.

In a cold day it is such a comfort to dig into a steaming hot delicious food. Often it brings relief on our sick days or even on a simple days. It is always a good feeling to share a good food with family.

Foods like these bring back memories and while we enjoy a bowl of hot food like these it's nice to share stories too...

Have you tried any of these comfort food Cute-rs? My favorite -- it's Lomi!
