For this month, the theme was a dish we wanted for our birthday. I was originally going to make Kare Kare but our local grocery store was out of ox tail. I was also going to make a mocha cake but all of my energy went out the window even before I started to cook. Instead I decided to make tinola for my birthday dish. It has been so long since I made tinola. I don’t get to make it that much because The Daughter was allergic to chicken.
1 Whole Chicken
1 Whole Onion Diced
4 Chayote Peeled and Cubed
2 Tbs of Sliced Garlic
Salt and Pepper to taste
3-4 Cups of White Rice
- Take a large stock pot and start heating up the pot with a little oil. Season the chicken with salt and pepper.
- Sautee the onions and once it starts to cook down, add the chicken whole.
- Slightly brown the chicken on all sides.
- Once it is cooked , garlic and chayote than add water to cover. Bring to a boil.
- While that is boiling, take the rice and prepare the rice for cooking. Take about 3-4 cups of the broth and pour it into the rice and than cook the rice.
- Continue to boil until the chayote is tender and the chicken is cooked.
- Serve over the cooked Rice
For dessert, I finally got my Strawberry pie. Ok I had to make it and I slightly cheated by using an already made pie crust. There was a sale on strawberries so I couldn’t pass it up. Too bad I can’t eat too much of it (stupid allergies ).
Favorite Pie Crust
2 Pints of Fresh Strawberries
Strawberry Glaze (Homemade preferred but I bought mine)
- Blind bake the pie crust.
- Once the pie crust is baked and cooled, arrange the strawberries in the pie crust.
- Gently pour the glaze to cover all the strawberries.
- Serve with whipped cream.

Update: I almost forgot. We will be blessed with a little Boy in June. The daughter is extremely excited and she can't wait to see him. I'll try to post the ultrasound pics as soon as my lazy self scans the picture.
