I Love Chayote Tops

One vegetable that I really missed to eat when I was in the states is chayote tops. The stores there don't sell it even in the Asian stores. They sell the chayote fruits but not the tops so I had to contend myself eating camote tops there because I had planted it in our backyard.

Here in Baguio, I have chayote tops for free because it grow in the backyard of my brother-in-law's house where we are staying now. In fact, I gathered a lot of chayote tops for our lunch today. My 10 year old nephew MakMak had helped me to get the chayote tops at the backyard. I instructed him where to cut it and he had fun gathering it. I boiled it and dipped it with Bragg's liquid aminos and vinegar. Hubby and I ate it with fried fish. I love veggies and fish. It was so yummy! Here's a photo of the chayote at the backyard.

Hi manang Lisa! I'm sorry I can't give you our home address here, people will read it... I have invitation cards for Daniel's baptism and I want to send you one but I also don't know your address in Laoac. If only we have each other's email or contact #s then we can stay in touch.

If it's fine with you, I'll make another comment and give you my contact #s and address but please don't publish it? Thank you!
