squash cooked in coconut milk

Posted by Malou at 8/04/2008 09:04:00 AM
Here is one of our Bicolano delicacy "a squash cooked in coconut milk". Just got lucky I had the necessary ingredients that we bought from the Asian store.
When I was a little girl my mom cooked this recipe and of all the vegetables that I do not like is this one. But we eat it anyhow because if we don't my mom will get angry with us besides we don't have any choice of food that was set on the table. I cried in front of the dining table every time we're gonna start eating. My sister was only a few years older than me. She was 7 and I am 5 that time. So to stop us from crying papa will scoop us both with his arm and we go in front of our house and look at the mountain close to us and papa started telling us stories about the enchanted fairies living on that mountain that when we eat this vegetables our eyes will become sharp and we will then clearly see the fairies.. Convinced by that, we eat this vegetables while papa was feeding us. But of course we saw something on that mountain alright, but only to realize when we were big enough to understand that those figures there were not fairies but group of people mountain climbing (lol!)

i hate kalabasa before as a matter of fact that was the reason why my father got too much angry with me until he hit me because of that vegies,he feed me and do his best just for me to accept the food.
my mama until now evertime she saw kalabasa she smiled at me and make a joke towards it.BOW!makagutom bru,,,

Delicious food and it is bad to read.. I feel hungry. I do love coconut milk especially with this kind of cooking or with Bicolano spicy style. I am salivating now...

to wanderer
Mahilig ka din pala sa kalabasa. I do really miss our bicolano food. Most of the time yan ang niluluto ni mama nung nasa pinas pa ko
