LaPiS: Kitchen Gadgets

Unlike back home where a craving for grilled food is easily satisfied with a quick request to yaya (term of endearment for our much-missed household help)Β to make some inihaw (grilled food in Tagalog) or via a quick stop at the nearby restaurant or street corner, being a long plane ride away does make satisfying this craving not as easy as it used to be.

Good thing we managed to bring this with us when we started our “desert adventures”…

Though we still miss the smoky, charcoal-grilled flavor of food from a good, old-fashioned outdoor charcoal grill, having an indoor grill like this is certainly the next best thing given our circumstances πŸ˜‰

This baby’s almost done… 😎

And yes, the shish taouk (Middle-East-style grilled chicken on skewers) on grilled vegetables turned out delish nonetheless! πŸ™‚

It doesn’t get any easier than this… just grill some store-bought pre-marinated chicken skewers (yes, folks, this ain’t home-made!) and mixed veggies (this much, I did – hahaha!) and you’re ready for a real grilled treat! For the veggies, I just cubed some red peppers, cucumbers, white onions and tomatoes, drizzled these with some olive oil, seasoned with salt and pepper and set them on the grill – they do make a perfect complement to the chicken. πŸ˜‰

  1. Wow, those look yummy! Ok lang kung store-bought, basat masarap πŸ˜€

    I agree! Happy Holidays, Teacher Julie! πŸ˜€


  2. I want a contact grill too! Pero tama ka mas masarap at mabango ang luto sa uling! =D

    (p.s. surimi=imitation of crab, lobster or shrimp made from fish, I think Kani is also used)

    Very useful to have one handy at home for those spur of the moment grilling adventures. πŸ™‚

    More familiar with kani kasi – at least now I have another term for it – thanks!

    pwede na rin to hon, but I also miss the charcoal flavor… sandali, i’m never volunteering to grill with uling ha…fyi lang.

    Understood. πŸ™‚ I’m not expecting you take over the kitchen anytime soon anyway – hehehe πŸ™‚


  10. Charap! Sigurado, simu’t sarap na naman ang putaheng ito.

    Dito ‘di ko alam saan makakahanap ng bamboo skewers.

    Hehe! Natawa ako sa possible then not so possible take over ng asawa mo sa kusina. πŸ˜€

    Take-over ba kamo? Huwag na muna – akin ang kusina, kanya ang kabayo (ng plantsa!) – hahaha! πŸ˜† We’re perfectly happy with our “division of labor” as it is so and I don’t see any “role changes” in the near future.
