I suddenly had a craving for tocino(Wikipedia definition: a cured meat product native to the Philippines. It is usually made out of pork and is similar to ham and bacon although beef is also used. It is often reddish in color and has a sweetish taste. Its name is derived from the Spanish word tocino, which is used to describe bacon or cured meat.) earlier today. I decided to prepare one of my favorite breakfast items for dinner – this might be a weird idea to some, but a novel and much-appreciated one by my husband (and by me, of course!)
We still had leftover rice from lunch, so I went all-out and made fried rice too! I made sure there were lots of crunchy garlic bits on top to give the rice an interesting kick and texture (yummm). And what the heck – I threw in a sunny-side up egg with the package as well!
This is what a plate of my tocilog looked like, before two hungry people attacked:
After a few minutes of eating, with only the empty plates in front of us, my husband and I had one thing to say to each other…
“Good morning!” =)
