Pork Ears Pares

Whenever a food craving strikes I always make sure to have it as soon as possible. Well, my husband knows that, because if I won't get it, he's the first one affected of my mood swings.

At times I don't have much things to do at work, my brain is wandering of what should I cook for dinner or for the weekend even if the week just started. And when my mind decided for what I want, it should be done. So, for this dish, which I don't have available ingredients, my husband and I have to do extra effort to buy specific ingredients just to satisfy my cravings.

I'm pretty sure he was satisfied because he requested me to cook it again. It was my first time to cook pork ears pares and my husband is not really a fan of such dish, so for him to request it, I'm definitely sure he loves it. Well, aside from satisfying my cravings, what really matters is for my husband to be happy with whatever I cooked for him.
