I love it when I get to spend time with my girl friends.
And lest you imagine me and my friends to be a Sex and the City kind of femme posse, let me cut your wild imagination short. Real women don't look like movie stars (or for those with a more active imagination, the only semblance real women with porn stars are smaller portions of mammarial glands and hairier, less lubricated girly bits). We have no skin that inspired God to create alabaster, and on good days, our lips are red and pouty because we got duped by the sly SM saleslady into buying the newest shade of red lipstick that comes with a free gift.
No, we are not hags. We are just real.
And when we lunch we do the real thing. No half-finished salads and liquid diets.
Today. I am lunching with one of my besties and I made for her a sinful dish of Binagoongan in Guinamos (Ilonggo dry shrimp paste).
Here's the recipe. Enjoy it with your besties.
1/2 kg. pork (adobo cut, liempo or countrystyle spare ribs, make sure to get some fatty parts)
1/2 kg. guinamos
1 head of garlic, peeled and finely chopped
1 cup of water
Place the pork in 1/2 cup of water and let it boil to soften the meat. When the water is fully reduced, brown the pork in its own fat. Add the garlic and then the guinamos.
Add the remaining water depending on the consistency you like.
Serve with raw or blanched vegetables.
