DISCLAIMER: I may be a bit direct in this post.

Many give me a very disgusting facial gesture when they learn I eat dog meat. It is as if it is their first time to hear that eating dog meat is killing your neighbor for food (that's very political in nature).

Well if you are an Igorot like me, things would have been different. We make Browny healthy to have some good meal someday. Oppppps, did I hurt those emotion-full feelings again?

Enough of the dog meat fever. I am sharing these photos I took during one dinner with my family. Promise, there’s no dog meat on the menu. Please don't mind my amateur photo- taking.

PINIKPIKAN. To make this dish perfect, we torture the chicken. Sadista! 

SAYOTE. We grow sayote in the backyard. During hard times, we resort to this veggie. It is one of our staple foods, aside from dog meat (just kidding). 

SALAD. If that evening is special, we always have macaroni salad on the table. It need no complete ingredients for the family to eat everything.

RED RICE. This is a luxury in the city. But in Sagada, we can dine this three times a day. I honestly do not like eating this because of its rough texture when it passes through the throat.

LETTUCE. We enjoy freshly-picked lettuce. That's the best thing about staying in the countryside! I love eating carrots and camote that were harvested not later than one day that I pull from the earth that very instant.

We eat with our bare hands. We call et "kinnammet". When you're in front of an Ilocano, don't ever use that word to him or else you end up getting a black eye.
