September is back to school time and many of us are happy to send little faces to school to become better versions of themselves. So, we try to send them to school with everything they need and a little piece of home. Something that makes them smile when they open their backpack or lunchbag. But how do you fit that type of comfort in such a small bag with all of the restrictions the school has. The no gluten, no nut etc etc has been the bane of my school lunch existence. What to do? What to do? Make something that will withstand all the pressure. Fried tofu is perfect.
One of my favorite comfort foods is shrimp fried rice. When I finally stumbled upon adding bacon to my shrimp fried rice recipe, I was ecstatic. The bacon added that flavor that was always missing.
We eat a lot of chicken in our house. So I’m always looking to change it up a bit. Luckily, I grew up in a pretty diverse environment. The majority of my classmates in high school were Filipino. So I was lucky enough to experience some of the culture and the deliciousness of the cuisine. From cassava cake and biko, to adobe chicken I have a couple of clear favorites.
