Cassava Pudding

>> Sunday, August 31, 2014



The Cassava was boiled, and there were just too many of them. This, I mentioned in my previous post. If there are so many, we need to find a way to recreate them and make them more appealing to the people in the house. 


So, from the boiled Cassava, we went to look for some recipes to tweak or remake.. 


We didn't find any, so we had to think of a recipe and came up with the simplest bread pudding recipe we have been making. Instead of the bread, we used the boiled Cassava. 



To experiment, we used a few boiled stems, mashed them and mixed butter, condensed milk, cream and cheese. 


And because it was just an experiment, we baked it in our oven toaster instead of the big oven. Baked it about 25 minutes, and this is the result.. 


It's flaky, crunchy and chewy on the inside. Yummy.. The texture is soft, but you could imagine a very soft textured Cassava cake. Because this is successful, we are going to make more from the remaining boiled Cassava stems..

Blessings From Our Mechanic's Farm and Today's Lunch



My father, after knowing that his mechanic had nowhere to go, offered our vacant lots in Balulang for him to stay, for his shop and for his family to temporarily live in. As the months progressed, they have made the vacant lot into a mini farm until it progressed and grew. Well, it is added income for them since he only has a few people to serve as mechanic. My father never asked for any rent from them, and although he never asks for a fee whenever my father would summon him for mechanic duties, my father still pays him. Even if he would refuse the payments, still, my father pays him because my father knows that their family needs it most. 


With the said set up, years after, we enjoy being given the free fruits of their labor from the farm. We were told that the farm is what gives them blessings and from time to time, they share their blessings with us too. 


Yesterday, my brother went there to bring wood. The wood that our carpenters used and no longer use here in Opol. There were too many of them that my father said the said wood can be used to make a house in the vacant lot. After all, there is still plenty of room for another house there. We were delighted to find that our mechanic and his wife sent us two free range chickens and some fruits and vegetables. 

So today, we cooked them for lunch. We dressed the chicken, and were able to cook two dishes from them.  The first one is my experimental Eggplant Chicken Blood Stew, and the second one, Tinolang Manok Bisaya



The Eggplant Chicken Blood Stew utilized some of the eggplants as well as portions of the chicken. It was quite good really. I shall have a separate post for its recipe. 


Tinolang Manok Bisaya utilized the beans, the Malunggay and most parts of the chicken. It was yummy. Also from the farm are huge Cassava.. Kamoteng Kahoy, as what we call them in Binisaya. My mom cleaned them already and we were thinking of what to cook them to, but we settled with boiling them, hahahaha..  

We didn't cook rice anymore for lunch. Cassava is carbohydrates too. I love its golden yellow color. It is naturally sweet. 


These two, they are not from the farm, but from my mom's suki. She bought the Malasugue the other day and it was frozen. The fried fish, Lipti, was bought earlier this morning, before they went to church.

The said dishes make up today's lunch.. I hope my brother and sister are here to eat with us.. Happy meal indeed.. Thank you UNIVERSE for blessings...
