Longanisa and Pandesal

There’s a small Filipino Grocery Store on the way home from one of our friends, so after our last visit we decided to stop by and buy a pack each of longanisa (a sweet Filipino sausage) and pandesal to have for breakfast the next day. While I much prefer to have my mom’s version of both, and I’ll learn how to make longanisa for myself sometime soon (and/or have time to make pandesal), these sure didn’t disappoint either of us (It was Dan’s first time having both).

Longanisa with Brown Rice… for the *slightly* more health-conscious of us.

Longanisa and Rice

This parody of Lil’ John is not mine, but it is a fitting end to this entry. It not only expresses love for that little sausage, but takes a few pokes at Filipino food culture such as: eating with your hands (common in the provinces) and eating dog meat (illegal but it still happens in the Philippines).
