The salmon was steaming away merrily on the stove a couple of nights ago when we received a call from friends.
"Pupunta kami dyan! Dyan kami kakain!"
(We're coming over, and we're having dinner there!)
Oh sure!, I exclaimed. But we were having salmon, and it was cooking in the same way we served it to them some dinners ago. Is that fine?
"Ok lang! May dala kaming ulam! Dinengdeng!"
(It's ok! We're also bringing viand! Dinengdeng!)
Isn't it great to have friends over who bring their meals over? :-)
And half an hour later, they arrived, bringing with them a pot full of aromatic dinengdeng as well as a small plate of sisig!
"O ayan, para hindi mo makalimutan ang Pilipinas!"
(Here, so you won't forget the Philippines!)
I felt sentimental as I stared at the vegetable goodness, laden with crabs and grilled milkfish! I hope they didn't think I was so touched that I had to take a photo, though. I forgot to explain it's for the blog.
And so we had a rather enjoyable dinner as we chatted about life in general while the kids made a general mess of the toys and laughed about.
We were not able to touch the sisig, so the following morning it was transformed to fried rice sisig! Happy days.
