I don't know about you, but for me, the best meals are those cooked and eaten at home. And this adobo is just one of the many dishes of my mom, that always makes me feel happy. The recipe is simple: just cuts of chicken and potatoes in soy sauce and vinegar, cooked till almost dried. And we can finish this whole pot with lots and lots of rice and lots of shared stories and laughter. I cook adobo, but everybody at home thinks Inay's adobo is still the best. And it is one dish that is always served lovingly at home :)

In the Philippines, we call this the Kalesa, and the driver is called the Kutsero. This mode of transportation is a throwback to the colonial times in my country. They are now only seen mostly at tourist spots, like the Calle Crisologo in the heritage site of Vigan in Ilocos Norte. A great way to travel and see the sites!

What put that gorgeous smile on my daughter's face? It was this special date that we had at a new mall, and the special added treat of the ice cream concoction of her choice!
