After reminiscing about childhood food memories, the last topic of Lasang Pinoy, I can't help but segue into more memories. With summer waning in the Philippines and summer just starting on this side of the hemisphere, summertime is fresh on all our minds. Summertime, with its lazy days, is the perfect time to let loose the Huck Finn in all of us. Not only does the weather make us want to get out of the hot house and loll under a tree, it also whets our appetites for anything cool and refreshing.

    The eggplant salad looks so tempting. Sadly i can't get that type of eggplant here. When they do sell them, they are so tiny or big round ones [aubergine]. That's definitely best paired with fried fish.

    I came across your blog when I googled "tinola", which I have to say was a great recipe. YUMMY. Thank you! Also love the eggplant recipe, I've made it several times before. My ex used to call it filipino salsa... so the name has stuck when I have described it to others.

    Hi mae, actually the eggplant I used are the big ones (I believe it is called black beauty) since I couldn't find the japanese variety. Try it with the variety you have there, it should still work.

    Hi iska, jules, tin, lani, and ces! I hope you can all make a post for this round :-)
    Jules, filipino salsa is a perfect description for this!
