Yes, I am not a fan of kilawin. However, my mom in law asked me to do this dish. Actually, it's my first time to make this recipe and the output was not perfect as expected. The kilawin tuna was too spicy and I think the vinegar in it was not sufficient. Anyway, here is the photo..

to do list
It's my husband's birthday and I want to cook something a little special for him. Although the dishes were not extravagant at least I know that everything is a labor of love..(yes naman!)Not to mention that our guests appreciated my cooking (I hope)..hahahaha..
happy birthday to you daddy!!!
here is the menu:
sisig-but I don't have a photo of it (lols)
fried wantons (no photo of the finished product)
mallows icecream cake
the procedure for the mallows cake
placed melted butter on the crushed graham then place on a round tin tray
melt marshmallow on milk in low-fire heat
melt the chocolate buttons and mix with the cream
here's how the melted mallows in milk would appear like
you would mix the choco cream mix in this then place it on the crushed graham
once it has cooled down you will refrigerate it for 8hours or overnight to fully set
here's how I did the fried wantons
I dumped everything in (ground pork, chopped mushrooms, onions, grated carrots, minced celery, scallions, spanish paprika, salt and pepper, sesame oil)
mix everything up (looks like Payatas)
I used wanton wrappers
1 beaten egg to seal the wanton wrappers

Ok..Again I was asked to cook dinner because my mother-in-law was wondering what I'm planning to do with the cream dory..I will do a fish fry and another variation of the stir-fry veggies..Plus, I experimented with making a honey semifreddo..
Here's what I have came up with:
STIR FRY BROCOLLI with TOFU
INGREDIENTS: garlic, red bell pepper, brocolli, fried tofu, little oyster sauce, salt and pepper
CREAM DORY fish fry
INGREDIETS: batter -> flour, sprite, salt and pepper, oil
custard will become thick..
semifreddo means half cold.. this is like an ice cream but is not as hard..
INGREDIENTS: 4 egg yolks and 1 egg whisked together with honey
fold with 2 packs of whipped cream
refrigerate for 2 days and top with toasted nuts
