Slow saturday suman

Reason for making this is cos im so annoyed at how overpriced they sell for at the Filipino bakery. A pair of suman sells for 2.50 as opposed to less then 10 bucks all in all to buy the ingredients.

What I used:

Step 3: enjoy it warm and steamy after its cooked for an hour. My mothers creation is still the best

My first time to make my native Philippine snack!

Its a rootcrop sweetened with raw cane sugar and grated coconut mixed altogether, wrapped in banana leaves and steamed for 45 mins. My mother makes the best suman ever.

Step 1- combine all this madness in a wide bowl add sugar to your liking
Step 2: The tedious part is wrapping each handful to the banana leaf.

Meal prepping and cooking 3pm-10pm

Bake # 1 

Cheesecake muffin inspired korean, underbaked, but better than the rock I did yesterday.

took a 30 min nap to prepare for battle.
Cook # 2 its for dinner

Fried fish with sauteed spinach in lemon garlic butter sauce- which is superb imo.

Broil #3 – to bring to our potlock tomorrow.

Hasselback chicken, always easy always fancy

I didnt get to take a photo as soon as it hit my take out foil tray

Bake #4- another batch for muffin, which got a little burned.

Muffin set at 475 for 9 mins (which essentially burned 

Broil # 5 – my Filipino beef longganisa (which is not sweet I hate sweet main courses) this is for our week long prep of lunches for work, i have yet to prep my coleslaw for the week. 

Combine toyo, suka and a whole host of marinades. Lovely taste, with a hint of spice but not overpowering. I betcha my hubby would wolf this down with vinegar.

Yaas.
