This week's Featured in Food Friday player is....

Ms. Adjoa, who owns the blog A GIRL'S REFLECTIONS, with her post: Food Trends 2012

As I was browsing through the site, I couldn't help but notice the wonderful pictures that accompanies her posts...very sharp and clear! I wasn't surprised, then, when I read (in one of her recent posts) that she got mistaken for a professional photographer! Way to go, Ms. Adjoa! Do go and check out her site that not only offers good photography, but also good food!

This week's food post was something that I needed that day; I was feeling pretty lazy, so all I wanted was to get comfy in a couch, sip/munch/chew, and when done: read a heart-warming book...I didn't find any heart-warming book to read, so instead I read The Son of Neptune (The Heroes of Olympus series) by Rick Riordan. lol.

This was what I made (and had) that day:

Pork and Beans with Mushrooms

Ingredients are pretty simple:
  • ground pork
  • a can of beans
  • a can of mushrooms
  • lots of tomatoes
  • mixed dried herbs (rosemary, basil, thyme, marjoram, oregano, and sage)
  • onion, garlic, salt, pepper, soy sauce


Procedure was equally fast and easy:
  • Thaw the meat and put in pan with water (just enough to cook the meat), soy sauce, salt, dried herbs, sliced tomatoes, and pepper. Let boil and mix. Let it be for a few minutes so that the ingredients get time to blend together.
  • Add the sliced onion and garlic. Simmer some more.
  • Add the sliced mushrooms and the beans (I didn't add the brine solution).
  • You can add in some more liquid (plain water or any stock that you might have); if you want, at this stage. Adjust seasonings...
  • Best eaten when hot. :)

I had a very happy lazy afternoon that day... <3 Reminder: Please link back here (you may use the Food Friday buttons located on the right sidebar, or a simple text) if you're playing... and don't forget to visit other players as well and leave them some comment love! thank you.♥

Once again, Maiylah! Thanks for the linky party. Looking forward to checking out these links. Also, I love that you feature a link each week :)

If only my family was into beans, I might try this for them... but then again, I am not into pork, too, anymore. Pwede kaya ito sa beef or chicken?

I hate visiting your site...


with an empty stomach... tsk...

BTW, that looks pretty easy :) Gonna try that as soon as find out what rosemary, thyme, marjoram, and sage are and if Aling Margarita (dun sa kanto) has them. Happy Friday, apir!

Hi MAiylah, Thanks for hosting. The soup looks amazing. A lovely hardy soup for a cold winter day. I am sharing a recipe for beef brisket and kale.
