Meetings, Meetings, and more Meetings

Do you ever have one of those days when your professional life completely interrupts your personal life?  Today has been one of those days.  I have been stuck in meetings and all I want to do is search for recipes.  Yes, I know I should be working but I get most of my brain storming of recipes tend to be at work.  So as I am fidgeting and wishing I wasn't stuck in meetings, I ponder various recipes I would like to try or dishes I crave.  During my 9 in the morning meeting (btw this is my breakfast time, so by than I'm starving), I started to crave Filipino fruit salad that I made on Mother's Day.  This dish is one of those dishes that brings you back to your childhood and when I have it now, I try to pretend it is "healthy" for me minus the condense milk :D.  The recipe is pretty simple and I may make it tonight, if I get all the ingredients.
Filipino Fruit Salad
1 Can of Condense Milk
1 Package of Cream Cheese
2 Cans of Fruit Salad
2 Mangoes (diced)
1/2 A Jar of Macapuno (If you could get fresh, it would be better) 
*You could put any fruit you would like.  I tend to put any fruit I have in the house.
  1. Combine the condense milk and cream cheese completely.
  2. Add the fruit to the condense milk mixture and incorporate thoroughly
  3. Chill in until it is ready to be served.  I generally let it chill overnight.   

Now off to yet another meeting :(


  1. I haven't had the "Filipino Fruit Salad" in a while. Love this recipe, especially the "kaong". Thank you for sharing. You gave me an idea for "Father's Day" dessert.

  2. I make these with lots and lots of kaong!!! Sometimes I actually just eat kaong with thick cream... and maybe a bit of fruits added. Mmm I love this!

  3. Haha, I have the same problem when I was at work - couldn't stop thinking about food & recipes.

    The fruit salad looks amazing. Thanks for sharing :)

  4. @Cook wtih Madin - I love sugar palm. I always have a stash of it in my fridge.

    @Trisha - I never had it with just this thick cream. I have to try it.

    @Emily - I'm always thinking about food. It is becoming a slight obsession.
