Bar-B-Que And Yawns….

Now about that bar-b-que I went to. I had a really good time except I was so tired all I wanted to do was sleep. I didn’t get one single picture or even a great story but I did get some great food. My son in-law is Filipino and he makes meaty, juicy ribs that are to die for. His parents were there so we had lumpia and banana lumpia too.


Lumpia is like a spring roll and you can never eat just one, 10 maybe but not one. A banana lumpia has brown sugar-coated bananas sliced in half and rolled in the lumpia wrapper (instead of meat and vegetables) and then deep-fried, this is unbelievable good. I brought homemade navy beans since this was a pot luck and even though I know they are good they looked pretty sad next to all that sticky, deep-fried, carb-heaven, goodness. This may be the reason I was so tired, too. much. food. There was a Hawaiian Rainbow cake for desert, I didn’t get any. I was trying to be good and with all the other things I had eaten there was just no way I could eat cake. Too bad because if you haven’t tried one, its delicious. In the end I went home early and took a nap. I think maybe I am getting old. Oh! and the picture above is from google images. I told you not one single photo. lol.

    Don’t you hate when you build up an event for blog-worthiness and get nothing? Note I have no day-after Halloween blog. At least you got good homemade food.

  2. The banana lumpia sounds heavenly! Yummy picture – I don’t care where it came from!

    Lumpia = yummia!

    It was lame, but that’s all I got :)

    I can’t tell you how much I wish I had a plate of lumpia for breakfast this morning.

    …saying that out loud sounds really strange, though.

  6. I have got to get me some lumpia.

    Or maybe I’ll just spend my day saying it over and over again. Either way…great fun!

  7. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Lumpia!!! I always get confused about the plural….so is it Lumpia or Lumpias?? or like Moose and Moose? :)

    It is Lumpia no matter how many there are…….the Banana is called Torrone (foggy on the spelling)……..It is cooked in many different ways depending on the Asian Culture it comes from. I once had it with mango inside. It was coated with so much sugar that it was hard on the outside. ……… good. I can’t wait for Thanksgiving
