Craving for chicken adobo and pork barbecue

The thing I miss most while being away from the Philippines is the delicious, though not always healthy, delicacies.  As I was browsing through my Christmas photos, I saw these two yummy pictures of pork barbecue and chicken adobo.

Pork Barbecue

Last Christmas, my dad prepared the pork barbecue with his own special recipe.  I don’t really know how he does it.  But my dad has always been the best cook in our family.  Every dish he prepares is simply the best I’ve ever tasted.

Chicken Adobo

One of the more popular Filipino dishes is the chicken adobo.  Every town seem to have its own version of this delicacy.  Some like it hot.  Some don’t.  Some like to have a bit more sauce, while others like it dry.  As for me, I like how my dad cooks it.  It’s tasty.  It’s juicy.  It’s delicious.

Although I can certainly try to cook these dishes on my own, it’s never the same having your family around with you, sharing stories, laughter, and delicious food.
