Spaghetti & (Chicken) Meatballs | #PHLOCKDOWN Day 5

Spaghetti & (Chicken) Meatballs | #PHLOCKDOWN Day 5

It’s #PHLockdown Day 5 and I’m sharing with you our lunch for day 2. The ingredients I used here are our kitchen staples. I always have frozen ground chicken in the freezer and canned tomatoes. So when Ykaie requested for Spaghetti and Meatballs, I was able to cook it for her. So Linguine & Chicken Meatballs in marinara sauce was our lunch.

Sauce is so simple and easy to make. I just sautéed garlic in olive oil, then poured in the canned tomatoes. Then I let it simmer for a few minutes and seasoned it with oregano, basil, salt and sugar and it’s done. For the chicken meatballs, I combined: ground chicken, onion, garlic, parsley, oregano, egg, bread crumbs, salt, and pepper. I also added Malunggay powder for a boost in nutrition. Then I mold it into a ball and fried it before adding it to the sauce. It smelled so good while simmering.

Ayan, naka-2 serving agad si ate Ykaie…

#PHLockdown Day 3 Lunch: Crispy Binagoongan with Talong, Steamed Talbos ng Kamote (Camote tops), Cauli Rice, and sawsawang Calamansi!

Our Day 3 lunch menu is Crispy Binagoongan with eggplant, Steamed talbos ng Kamote, Cauli Rice, and sawsawang calamansi. I had to use all these veggies or they will go bad, hence this lunch.

I have little veggies left in the kitchen and scared to go out because I just heard the update of 307 confirmed cases as of today.

How about you mommies? How are you holding up?
