Hearty Pinoy meal [LaPiS]

A hearty meal for most Pinoys is virtually anything as long as there is bottomless rice.

I started cutting down my rice intake 2 years ago in an effort to fit into my old jeans again. It was difficult at the beginning but I eventually got used to a half cup of rice for breakfast, lunch and dinner. With some exercise, I lost 12 lbs. in over a year and was able to maintain the 122 lbs. weight. But by late last year, I relapsed into eating more rice and meat again. Look at this sampler of Hickory smoked chicken, beef ribs and pork ribs with a plate of garlic rice---certainly not for someone who would want to lose weight! This sampler from Racks was served with baked beans, corn bread, atchara and coleslaw. Good thing I have some friends to share this meal with.

Naalala ko dati may time na ang main consideration namin sa pagpili ng kakainan eh kung may rice all you can. =)

It looks like some meat stayed a bit too long on the fire...
I hope it was good !

I agree - "rice all you can" is definitely a distinctly Pinoy characteristic - hahaha! :lol:

I so miss Racks! Thanks for bringing back yummy memories, Luna!
