Carabao Wings

What’s to say, the wings were awful: too sweet, too sour, too sticky.  Carabao = buffalo, get it?

And so, GMTD enters the home stretch of Cycle 4, the final 10 meals.

Looking back at what I ate to close out previous cycles, the general trends don’t suggest any apparent effort to finish with a bang, though my birthday and New Year’s Eve, as well as the general holiday vibe during this time, did give rise to at least a few notable meals.

But this year, I’ll be dining according to a carefully considered schedule.

I’ve accepted a three-month contract to work on a project at WHO in Manila.  The contract begins on January 10 and runs through April 11.  Although I’ll try to return home on weekends as often as I can, at least once a month, though probably not more than twice, I’ll be in Manila for the most part.

As such, from today to the day that I depart, December 27 to January 9, 14 days, I hope to make the dinners count, enough to hold me over for the next few months.  The choices will comprise foods that I enjoy the most, foods that I won’t have easy access to in Manila.  The occasions will involve friends and family.  A farewell fortnight feast.

Pragmatically, however, the first meal began with a chow-or-chuck clean-out of various crap in the freezer, stuff that nobody else would use in my absence.  Like chicken wings.  MtG was on hand to help.

Symbolically, I prepared the wings Philippine-style.
