Check these out!  This is a lot more creative and fun than your run of the mill pizza bites!  I bet these things are delicious and they’re giving me a serious craving for microwaveable Bagel Bites mini-pizzas, which I haven’t had in quite a few years now.  I swear I used to live off those things.  I’d go through two or three boxes a week.

Ovens weren’t common in homes in Singapore, but they’re available here and this is getting me interested in putting on my apron and breaking out the oven mitts.

Carabao Chicharon

Since moving overseas I’ve made it a point to try to be more adventurous in what I eat.  There are certain things that I still can’t bring myself to try, like balot, but I’ve just added something new to my list of snacked-on animals: carabao.  This is sort of cheating, because it wasn’t a carabao steak or anything like that, but it was still a carabao product.


What I had was carabao chicharon.  Chicharon is a Tagalog word, borrowed from Spanish, that is the same thing as pork rinds or pork cracklins (sp?) in the US.

It tasted great!  Better than the other kinds I’ve had before, and as far as this type of food goes, it’s supposedly more healthy.

It was served with a vinegar and minced garlic dip which really made it taste great.
