Tummy Crunch(i)es

Guess a lot of you have heard how crunches supposedly does wonders for the tummy.

I couldn’t agree with this more.  Except that in our family, this is the type of crunch(i)es that make our tummies happy. 😉

The perfectly crunchy skin of “just-popped-out-of-the-broiler” Lechon Kawali! 😎

We are accustomed to eating our lechon kawali (roast pork belly) in bite-sized pieces like these.  Dip these babies either in soy sauce and vinegar with a little bit of crushed garlic or with Mang Tomas all-around sarsa and you will surely be in sheer “oinkish delight”! 😆

And the requisite side dish? Ginisang Munggo (Sauteed Mung Bean Soup), of course! Perfect combination! For mung bean recipe, click here.

I am pleased to note that even our “littlest member” has requested for seconds! It certainly makes my “kitchen mom heart” very full to hear the kids say “I want crunchie please!” everytime I serve them this dish. 

Note to self: replenish “forbidden goods” during our next “neighborly” visit – hahaha! 😆
