Default Pork adobo - mmm!

Hello there!

Having noticed the geese nibbling on the shoots of kang kong reaching out into their pond, I decided upon a preemptive strike:

I slithered along the trunk of a tree I had felled neatly across the pond and harvested a bucketful of the choicest kang kong leaves (see snap).

Then, armed with a recipe for pork adobo I found on the FB forum (I think), I whipped up a quick dinner while Bianca was still mowing her portion of the 400-odd square metres of 'lawn'...

She was sceptical at first, but pronounced the dish excellent! I served it with basmati rice cooked in the broth from osso bucco bones from dinner on Tuesday.

No pics of the meal, sorry - we were both too hungry to delay feasting!

Is that thye same stuff I used to get in Singapore with hot chili sausce mixed in?

We called it ditch weed there, but it was damn good.
