    bakit may peanut butter? :(

    kailangan ba yun?

    diabetic kasi ang parents ko

    bawal din ang high in sodium :(

    so kahit mahilig ako sa kare-kare... di kami nagluluto nun

    ang bf ko din super nutrition conscious (no oil, little salt, less meat) diet kaya puro sinabawang fish lang kinakain namin :(

    a ganun talagang hindi pwedeng walang peanut butter yan kasi yan talga main ingredient na nagpapasarap dyan. We only eat it at special ocassions talagang bad yan kung parati din. Everything in moderation c:

    so you haven't really heard and tasted this? your choice naman yan c: that's our freedom c:

    Actually yung gawa naming kare-kare walang peanut butter. Ang kapalit, dinikdik na mani hanggang maging malambot. =)  

  8. Berryblitz said...

    yung mismong mani, yan ata ang original, yung peanut butter ang "kapalit"

    hindi ba?

    @berry and gem

  10. Gem said...

    pero mas masarap ang original na mani, yung adobe, wag yung salted hehee

  11. iceah said...

    @gem

    sabi nga ni pasti rin yun ang original c: wow, di pako kasi nakatikim ng orig na mani lang talga c:  

  12. Gem said...

    Try mo... it's actually easy.

    dikdikin lang ang mani til malapit sa peanut butter consistency... try using rice lang .. wag na cornstarch, as indicated sa recipe...
