I'm no longer going to apologize for my long breaks. I'll just continue this until it's done. The next A-Z Challenge for 2016 is about to begin this April. I know, I totally suck at blogging. LOL. Please bear with me. So, this is the S part of my 2015 A-Z Challenge. I'm almost done!
There's a lot of S words that remind me of the Philippines: Sili, Salabat, Sapin-Sapin, and Singkamas.
Sili is probably here in California. I'm probably not having any luck finding them, that is. All chilis here are normally the green kind. I miss Siling Labuyo. That's the real spicy red chili I grew up with.
Salabat is my home remedy for sore throat or cough. It's boiled ginger. That's it. No other ingredients, unless you want to add honey.
Sapin-Sapin is one of my favorite Philippine desserts. It's layered rice cakes. It's good with shredded coconut.
Singkamas is one of my favorite snacks. I love crunchy stuff! In fact, Singkamas or Jicama, is a great low carb replacement for French Fries. I have yet to try it at home, though. All I need is to find jicamas somewhere. HeHe.
The best part of eating Singkamas is putting Bagoong on it. Bagoong is Filipino shrimp paste. I prefer the spicy flavored version. Yum!
