Usually on saturday mornings I wake up automatically around 7am. I didn't even wake up until like 830. I ran to buy produce and chicken and scored chicken breasts at $1.27/lb. So I bought like uhhhh - 20 lbs. hahaha. Then I stopped to get produce and 3 kinds of lettuce and some tortilla chips.
I texted the girls you don't even have to come until 1pm coz I haven't even started cooking yet...So I parboiled the chicken breasts and got to work...
drain and shred
pre saute the potatoes
defrost the wrappers
saute in the usual fashion and season
add mixed and chopped veggies then cool to room under a fan
Roll with or without the Homies
I calculated I can roll 50 lumpias in the time it takes Julian to finish 3 quarters on NBA live and I think those are 3 minute quarters. hahaha. not bad right...
Just roll steadily and text friends with your pinky finger so you don't get rice flour glue on your new phone. LOL
So I had a whole bowl of boiled chicken and didn't know what to do and Benjo was enroute with extra wrappers...So I decided to create a "white shanghai"...Usually Filipinos make lumpia shanghai with half beef half pork with some garlic and some green onion which makes it cook brown or pink. I mixed fresh ground pork with boiled chicken breast, 1 cup (yeah a CUP) of minced fresh ginger, green onion and 5 cloves of garlic, garlic powder and red Korean chili powder...So when they cook it has a bright white interior. I humped out about 100 of those and just rolled my little hands off...
Fortunately for me Benjo and Bebe were here to taste test...Benjo took his cut of 25 each home sayin,"thanks now i've replenished my stock..." hahahah.
I told Kibby - call JR/Vic Damone and tell him to come get his cut.
jr: oh i'll be there at 6pm, believe it.
vic: yeah yeah yeah man - I'm there.
Someone come help us eat these MoFo's there's no room in the freezer.
Even the door is full. Ridiiiiiiiiiiiiiculous.
Hahaha he's too faded to assemble food.
So I throw on a robe and my glasses and walk out there with my bedhead and I'm like hi guys! And they are all just standin there lookin at the meat but everyone has a fresh heinekin in their hand. I just laugh and ask,"need help?" The bebe is like YEAH. I said I gottit.
Everyone is chopping it up and I slice up a third of the beef - ask bebe to grab an onion, the lemon juice and some bellpepper. I heat up the pan, until it smokes - then hit the ricecoooker to rewarm the rice. Add oil - sizzle beef, sprinkle some red chili flakes and garlic powder...Boris is intrigued and is like what's this what's that...Kibby is like Grub Commentator..that is garlic powder, that is no msg oyster sauce, that is 2 soysauce, she uses 2 kinds)...All three of them are rubbin their hands as the meat sizzles - I fire up the little fryer and drop in half a dozen lumpia. I then add a little fresh crushed pepper, bellpeppers, onions and green onions. In about 4 more minutes it's all done. The whole thing took about 10 minutes.
Boris,"OMG you got eggroll action too?"
Julian,"My bebe makes those..."
Boris," Noooo Way..."
I open the fridge and show him the stash...he's like Wow man wow and gives Julian this look of,"you're lucky."
I say, it's ready - eat eat eat.
They are just eating and eating and sayin,"oh man that's good, this is so good" hahahaha. I told them eat it all - i'm not hungry its too late. LOL. So they ate and went to catch a quick poker game at Rudeboy's house. Mind you their Jamaican homie called like 5x and they are like HOLDUP WE EAATTTIIIIIN'
Last week Gya blew into town for a little respite from East Coast Winter...
Bomblettes on the fly for Gya, Tina, Element and Me and then a quick peek at Friday coz everyone loves that Movie... also included are pics from a previous bomblette where we gave Gya a hard time about her Anime I dig him face!
Logan (Element) was joking I'll have steak with mine - I laughed and said don't joke - we got steak - The girls are like don't make him no steak - I laughed and said let the man have steak - if he want steak he can have steak....
Man - why I gotta have my just rolled out of bed skirt on in both sets of pics and the first hoodie I grab out the cabinet. hahahhah.
I even had time to throw a batch of cookies coz you know we cool like that...
Girl bomblettes was one of the funnest...
And even before Gya left for Brooklyn...there was time for brunch
hahaha: i'm the only person who gets photo tagged for a cookie delivery.
And still we're packin' lunches...
Mostly sammiches and pasta dishes topped with salmon or chickennn
a couple weeks ago the girls came in from Vegas for a couple days to relax after snowboarding in Utah and Flagstaff...hahaha
They din't even wanna go out - they just wanted to chill and eat.
After one meal in particular they were like dang we're sleepy - I said oh you guys just ate too much - It's just the ITIS. They were like what's the itis?
I laughed and said we gotta watch boondocks for proper explanation. I never bother the girls when we mob out to Vegas we always stay at the hotel - but now the girls insist we gotta stay with them. LOL.
My latest favourite arrival from Tita Momma in Manila...5lbs of organic, sun dried on banana leaves then hand roasted in a clay pot over charcoal. Bwaa hahhaha. What you know about that...observe the pan roasted chicken on romaine in the background already packed for my lunch
So Vic said it again...He woke up late one morning and was standing in the kitchen tryin to eat before he left for work. So he was disconbobulated and makin' a decision - meanwhile his girlfriend stood in the kitchen and LOOKED at him. I told Julian this morning...if her dumb ass was already standing in there she was prolly already stuffing her face - how hard would it be to hook him up with something to eat if she was already stuffing her face?" I didn't like that cow anyways - and she really pushed me over the edge when she smacked Julian jokingly in the head with a piece of paper. But for realz.
Why you tryin' to be with someone when you have nothing...nothing brought, nothing to share, nothing to give. And then this hoe tries to act surprised that his Momma don't like her.
I'm tired of hearin' of these triflin' ass hoes. I'mma tell you hoes that I know in a 3rd party way (as in your guy hang out with my man) everytime you cut up - everytime you mess up - everytime you act up, act retarded, act dumb, act out - and I know you hoes do it daily - it's good luck to me. Coz everytime you do dumbshit your guy call my MAN and tells him the DUMB shit you did and after he's done shakin his head as he listens on the phone...he finds wherever I am in the house and gives me a hug and a kiss - and THANKS me...yeah, he thanks me for helping to make the life we have a good one and being a good woman and a great friend to him and never doin dumb shit. So you see your misfortune is my fortune.
I will tell you this - when you are selfish and dumb, you might as well have an expiration date on your forehead: best before 02.02.09...coz it's only a matter of time before he gets hip to your rotten dumbshit then you out on that ASS.
I love it when I randomly get calls from the Homies...
What you doin Sauce...GYA
Honey I'm home...Wendy returning from Asia
What's crackin' gangsta...Epademik Emcee Esquire

I still haven't figured out my phone it has way more features than my last phone which was already a heavy duty 3G Razor from Asia and the Blackberry...so bear with me and just keep callin..

from my bro: Yeah that too, we gotta try that place
to my bro: I will try next week and give you my verdict
from my bro: coo !
there are many throughout the week that just crack me up to and from everyone and i keep most of them just to make me laugh - coz even the most simple ones are funny...or good news...or remind you that someone loves you.
to my stepmom: hi, i need the address. scilla brought your panties from Manila

The other day I called him and his phone conked out completely...So today I went and worked a deal and got 2 very dope phones for about 130 bucks. Bwaa hahahah. Holla @ Kevin @ AT&T on Camelback.
Bebe wanted some LG thing - but they had a bunch of lamers and the cool ones only came in lame colours like red/white candy cane or orange. Julian is not TOO particular about things - it's pretty obvious that he enjoys that he can trust my judgement on things. I did my homework this morning and decided I wanted the Quickfire in Lime...and the Bebe would get the pantech duo or a double slide. Well all they had was the Pantech Matrix in black with a touch of Lime. Sooo...
Voila...his and hers phones.
Bwaaa hahahhaa. I love these lil jokers. Nothing else looked good. I already ditched a blackberry and i didn't like the VU and i didn't want the newer beefier razor...so there you go. LOL.
He was so tickled when he got home it was like Christmas all over again and he had this look of excitement - then he took the memory card from his old phone and it just happened to take it plug and play. So all his music was sitting right. He's still playin with it right now coz it slide both ways. hahahha.
It's the little things huh.
Coz really at this point of the game we are just little kids with an income.
ps) call me so I can autoprogram your birthdays with your number.
it's five days later and he's still tickled!

I'm still laughin...
Still laughing at you heffa's trying to rock bangs and funky boots and steez. Naw - keep tryin' it's okay. The headcount went up 2 this week. And since no one will tell you I will. If you have an ugly face don't try to rock a child like haircut. If you have no cheekbones don't try to cut it so slick. If you just don't have the demeanor to do it - don't do it. It is a brutal and blunt lookin' style to rock and if you ain't rockin' it right you look like a Perpetratoress...
Also, keep imitating. When you try to take something from someone else even if it's their steez - something will be taken in exchange. This is a basic principal of nature for you heffa's that didn't pay attention in biology. The last couple wannabees that copied me had a lot of bad things befall them, job loss, divorce, breakups, etcetera. So keep imitating and I'll make some popcorn.
I wore my funky shortstack Japanese-ey lookin sugar boots and a cord 3/4 cut coat to work today...It's a little funky but who cares I got a shoe shopping date with my girl Monica today. OMG these heffas be hating...so today i initiated...
THE PIMP WALK...
Monday, January 5, 2009
Somehow, we made it through the holidays...Our presents were pretty obvious from the start and now we have even more than what we had. Fashion and Fun seemed to have intermarried with Food and Art.
In between all the doubletime and triple time and comp days and half days - we still managed to make meals...and even pack our lunches...
Dinner becomes the next days lunch with chicken enchiladas...
I've started sending lunches off in these disposable foils with covers...coz my tupperware is making it to other peoples cabinets and not finding their way home. This remedies me askin' for it or for anyone feeling bad.
For Christmas we had a simple paella, a ham and side veggies.
Here's a closeup
Ham,"it ain't no joke"
Then there's the nightly food.
Sirloin isn't a life altering decision - it's just there all the time
I make our salad toppings...don't hate
Our mashed potatoes don't come from a box, and gravy is made fresh
With a little salad
All I gotta say is 2 years in the game...and he's still tickled with his plate.
Plus you know - we're still getting the hookup on pot roast...about 35lbs for like 40 bucks. Bwaa ahahahha.
You think you know but you don't. I got the super delux hookups.
Don't say you love people if you feed them garbage. Just Don't.
I see people doin' this all the time sayin' how they care about such and such or love such and such to death, and then when the topic of cooking comes up they turn up their shit infested noses as if they were entitled to do nothing.
