While browsing my newsfeed in Facebook, I saw an article on 15 cute snacks or lunch for kids. So I opened up the article and read through it. One snack really caught my eye, it’s the Angry Bird sandwich.
Although the Angry Bird craze and hype have already faded away, I still thought of making one for Kuya Bogs following the recipe in the article. Here’s a shot of the Angry Bird sandwich I made for his lunch today. Just pardon the image, I took it with my old iPad.
This sandwich calls for:
- mini bagels – in my case, I did not have mini bagels that time, so instead, I used bread (which was easier to form), I used white bread here, you can either have whole wheat or any other kind.
- salami or ham – cut it to form a mouth, reserve the remaining portion to make the hair on top of the bird’s head.
- parmesan cheese – for the white part of the eyes
- black olives for the brows and pupils – I did not have black olives too so I just used raisins for this part.
- cheddar cheese – shaped into a beak
Assemble everything and viola! In just a little under 5 minutes, I had a sandwich for Kuya Bogs, and guess what! He loved it! He finished his entire lunch in school just only during snack time! Hubby had to bring him another sandwich to school for his lunch!
It was a hit!
Hubby and I finally had the chance to eat lechon paksiw. It’s a Filipino dish where leftover roasted pig is seasoned with soy sauce, vinegar, some sugar, salt and black pepper and added with bay leaves.
Nanay Lita gave us some the other day since they came from a birthday bash in one of the towns here and they brought home with them some roasted pig. So Nanay Lita made some lechon paksiw and called me up to get my share. Isn’t she the sweetest Nanay?? hehehe. So anyway, hubby and I thought that it would taste like the lechon paksiw that we used to have back home. Since Nanay Lita is from the capital city, she has a different way of cooking lechon paksiw, it had some sweetness to it, while ours in the Visayas region has some soury taste to it. But nonetheless, we still gobbled up everything. It was a delicious dinner for us hubby and the kids.
I am very thankful that we met Nanay Lita. As usual, we get free dinners (and some snacks) from her.
