Food Trip Friday #5 - Humba


I am joining Clarissa on this "Food Trip Friday" meme for a reason that I want to challenge myself to try something new food at least once a week in order for me to learn to cook.

When I was still in the Philippines, one of the least things that I would try is cooking. Just why? I can't handle criticism. He-he-he! But the irony is, I love eating and I know how some foods supposed to taste. Few weeks after I arrived here in Michigan, I started to craved my favorite Filipino dishes. My best friend, Ann, whom I chat to almost every night, suggested to me to try to cook "Humba". It's one of my favorite. She gave me the recipe and instructions. I tried it. To my surprise, it did good. I did good! I can't believe it.
