Weekend Dinner Chronicle #4 Paksiw Pata & Green Salad

What's for dinner?
Don't get fooled by the looks of the Paksiw Pata, made of all natural ingredients like sampaloc extract [tamarind], onions and full of garlic. Cooked from a pressure cooker, the stew taste terrriffffic!!! =)
Vegetarians wouldn't agree with me, as much as I tried to minimize pork intake. I just can't pass this one. First I love Sinigang in any forms especially the ones made from natural sampaloc. Thus this Pata paksiw is so tasty, addicting and more addicting. =) Just  don't forget to drink green tea or milk tea afterwards. In our case, best with a Coke soda? =)
To cover up the massive cholesterol we gained, we balance it with Gourmet's Organic Grown greens: Green Ice Lettuce and Romaine Lettuce dip with a Gourmet's Sicilian Dressing and fresh tomatoes.
Finish it off with a dessert, since it was a Kaimito [starfruit] season. My kid's first time to give this a try, I purposely describe it as a local mangosteen for her and it worked. =)

From a local grocery find.
This meal will cost about PhP 600 [$14].
Plus the labor of cooking =)
Good for 6 to 8 heads.
