I could hardly recall that I would bring a lunch box during elementary & high school. My folks would hand me my school money, enough to last a day. We have a school cafeteria with a snack bar and only one catering vendor so the food choices were limited.
Back then, I do not mind the few choices since the owner of the caterer vendor was not only pleasant and very accommodating to us but she had some delicious dishes which became my favorites.
One favorite was her creation of Arroz ala Cubana. I look forward to the combination of this simple yet filling dish since it consists of ground meat, sunny side up egg and fried bananas. It was such a comfort food at that time.
Over the years, Arroz ala Cubana was one of the simple dishes I would whip whenever I had these main ingredients. This would usually be when I make my Pinoy Sweet-Style Spaghetti.
Allow me to share with you this PINOY FOOD RECIPE : ARROZ ALA CUBANA with a few tweaks I made over the years. This recipe can be for one when you are hungry or for two for modest munching.
