I had a week-long vacation with my cousins in Central Florida. It was seven days of fun, sightseeing, and lots of healthy eating (mostly Filipino food). I took more than six hundred pictures of my vacation, some which I am going to share with you here in OWM.
This week, my subject is Food. Hence, the title "Burp!"
Florida is always associated with "oranges". During my visit to my cousin's place, I saw orange groves everywhere.
Here are some photos I took of the orange trees in their backyard.
Aside from oranges of different varieties, I also found plenty of "Filipino vegetables" in my cousin's backyard like malunggay, camote tops...
balimbing (star fruit)
Everyday, I was treated to a sumptuous, albeit, healthy feast- mostly Filipino dishes.
sweet and sour fish
I don't know what they're called. Dilis?
My cousin and I went to McCracken Farms at Polk County to buy pomelo and strawberries. I bought a couple of bottled McCracken goodies like the all natural baby beets (my New Year's present for my friend, Noelle), sweet and spicy mustard, jalapeno mustard, spicy pickles, and peach flavored hot sauce.
