This is the first for me to actually join tnchick.com’s PhotoHunt series for bloggers who has taken on photography be it as a hobby or profession.
A theme is given each week and those who want to join would simply post a photo on their blog representing that chosen theme. Of course, much link-love goes around among those who have joined.
This week’s theme is breakfast!
I love tofu! It reminds me of everything that’s inside my blood. Asia: my Chinese ancestry, my Filipino heritage, its people and cultural awesomeness! Every time my parents prepare tofu be it mixed in with a dish or on its own, I never fail to help my self to no less than two blocks’ worth of this wonderful coagulation of soybean milk.
Stir-fried with mixed vegetables has been a favorite variety of tofu in our family. But in Sunday mornings, which is also family day in our household, tofu is prepared as part of breakfast as stand-alone dish enjoyed the Filipino way, deep-fried until golden-brown and its outer skin a tender crisp.
Served with my father’s very own secret blend of vinegar, soy sauce and other spices, it quickly runs out for those who are too lazy to get up on a Sunday morning. This tofu dish is accompanied by my mother’s arroz caldo*.
Ah yes, the glory and bliss of sharing a simple yet wonderful breakfast with your family. All thanks to the humble yet awesome, tofu.
