When it Rains it Pours

Wow, those rain drops are certainly coming down like there’s no tomorrow!

tonight, after braving the grumpy weather, i came home to a tortang talong dinner (fried eggplant with ground beef). i love this with good old ketchup, much like i do most fried dishes. but tonight, hubby and i tried mixing our plain tomato ketchup with some chili sauce

we found this on the shelves of the Asian section of the grocery and hubby took an interest right away

it was as we expected, its the kind that you mix in soysauce when you want to dip you dimsum in something hot!  and it makes a delicious condiment mixed with your good old tomato ketchup!

When it rains it pours its good to eat something hot!

    Well, it started pouring here, what with the beginning of the rainy season!

  2. i like chili sauce in soy sauce with calamansi!
    really perfect for steamed dimsum! mixing it with ketchup for a tortang talong sounds good too!

    i guess if japanese have horsetail radish for wasabi, chinese and other orientals have capsicum to spice up everything! …spells yummy!
