I don’t feel very well today. I have got a massive headache which refuses to go away despite regular intake of paracetamol.
I thought I’ll make myself lugaw, a Filipino rice soup dish, alas I don’t have fresh ginger in the fridge. Lugaw without ginger is a non-starter.
After rummaging through the pantry, I found this sardines made from the Philippines. It was a red spicy LIGO. I thought I’ll heat it up a little bit and it would go nicely with a little boiled rice.
While the rice is boiling merrily on the stove, I put in the sardines in a frying pan. The smell made my stomach somersault like it was practising for the Olympics. Hot, spicy Ligo sardines with boiled rice is out of the equation sadly.
But I was still starving. I remember my comfort food, the thing I would eat when I don’t really feel like eating, eggs with fried garlic which coincidentally will go nicely with my boiled rice. Love it with tomato ketchup on the side.
All is well in my world excepting my horrible headache
To make my egg omelette is extremely easy.
Beat a couple of eggs in a small bowl, add salt and pepper.
Chop finely a couple of cloves of garlic
Add oil to a frying pan on a medium heat.
Add the garlic; when brown, turn down the heat.
Add the egg to the pan. It will cook quickly.
Get a nice spatula and turn the egg over. Leave for a minute.
Then serve with a dollop of ketchup with boiled rice or chips.
