A Century Tuna Dish

Since the day I got married, I’ve been in constant search of recipes that are easy enough for me to cook. I’m not a stay-at-home wife and I am not a very good cook. But I at least want to eat my own cooking and be satisfied by it.

1st stop: Recipes with canned goods as one of the major ingredients. For this recipe, I’ll be using Tuna Chunks in Vegetable Oil.

The original recipe can be found here. I made some changes to it to make cooking easier and faster (as if the recipe is not easy enough to follow. Ü)

Procedure:

  • Saute onions and garlic on butter (mom told me using butter instead of cooking oil makes food taste better).
  • Add in the potatoes, cauliflower and water (enough to cook the potatoes with a little remaining to serve as sauce)
  • Once the potatoes are cooked, add in the Tuna. Season it with Soy Sauce (or Seasoning)
  • When done, add salt and pepper according to your taste

It’s highly customizable. You might want to put in your recommendations on the comments to make it taste better. 🙂

The Magalawa Island

Last weekend, May 22-23, 2010, my husband, I and our office friends went to Palauig, Zambales. It is a much-needed vacation for all of us. Magalawa Island is the perfect getaway to unplug ourselves from technology (save for our cameras! ;)), go back to Jurassic times, be one with nature, relax and not think about work (weh! :P) and other pressures for once. How did it go? I think the pictures will say it all. 🙂

Trivia
We had the chance to meet the owner of the beach front area of the Island, Mr. Reynaldo Armada. This down-to-earth man, known as Boy Armada to the locals, had been a Kagawad in Palauig for almost 12 years, assigned as Chairman of the Committee of Fisheries and Agriculture. He said they’ll be doing some renovations on their rest rooms and shower rooms, and will add other Bamboo Huts for visitors who do not wish to camp. But other than that, they’re keeping the Island’s original beauty. He also said that the government will put in a mini-airport just behind his property, making it more accessible to many.

Island’s Contact Info
