Birthday Fare

I had a simple birthday celebration last month.
My family and I had lunch in our garden.

Dad cooked my favorite Chicken Adobo sa Gata using native
chickens which he raised in our backyard
. My sister Gay
cooked pork barbecue and Bam-i (noodles). She also surprised
me with Choco-Banana Crepe for dessert.

Here's my dad's Chicken Adobo sa Gata (chicken in coconut milk):

1 medium size chicken, cut into pieces
1/2 cup vinegar
1 head garlic, crushed
1 tbsp salt
1 tsp pepper
2 c coconut milk
1-1/2 c coco cream

Bring to a boil chicken with vinegar, garlic, salt and pepper.
Add coconut milk and simmer until chicken is tender.
Add coco cream and cook until it turns oily.
Serve hot.

I am submitting this to Ning
of Heart and Hearth who is hosting
GYO's # 20 round up.

I'm so excited you found me on Foodbuzz. I've never read a blog about Filipino food before. Very exciting for me as I love reading about food from other countries and cultures. That picture with the durian was interesting. I've never seen or heard of those before!

This looks great, and I'm wondering where I can find coconut cream in California- SF Bay Area region. In a Asian centered grocery store? Would the label say "coconut cream?" Thanks for sharing your family recipe.
