Food Craving Wednesday
If tehre is one Filipino dish that I wouldn't be tired of eating, it's the lumpia, espcially if it's home made. And especially if it's made by my niece. She has the knack for cooking that one.
When she was little and was about 9 or 10 years old and she would need money for a little fishball fix in the afternoon after the naps, and she knew no money would be coming her way because well, kids only get so much allowance and nothing more.
Her entrepreneural spirit coupled with resourcefulness kicked in. She would get rice from the rice bin and make lugaw (porridge) and she would sell this to all of us, her aunts and uncles and cousins. She would charge 50 cents per bowl of lugaw. At the end she would have enough money to have two orders of fishball.
Now that she's grown and mother of three boys, her family is well fed. She continues to enjoy cooking and this is her lumpia.
