Spectacular Dantes View

It was well worth a long drive (a lonely road) to Dantes View. This was our last stop on our first day of journey to Death Valley National Park California. It was already 3:30 pm when we left the main road and it took us about 20 minutes to get there. A 13 mile paved road but the last quarter mile is 15% grade. A steep climb up but so beautiful. Vehicles over 25ft or longer are prohibited on this road. Please watch our short video  Road to Dantes View  to see the road.  There were few cars when we arrived at The Dantes View but those people were out exploring around.

RV Life Easy Cooking: Pinakbit or Pakbit

We had an opportunity to stop at Seafood City in Tukwila, Washington. I took advantage of the opportunity and bought some fresh vegetables for cooking Pinakbit or pakbit. I miss eating pinakbit since I'm living in an RV full time, a home away from home, I got to do what I have to do (means I have to cook it myself) No friends and no family who can cook it for me. Anyway, I have the all the ingredients needed so I gave it a try and oh it turned out great (in my opinion).

The ingredients: 
Garlic, Ginger, Onions
Meat (I used pork)
Squash, Long Beans, Eggplant, Better Melon (Ampalaya), Okra
Optional: Sauteed Shrimp Past or Ginisang bagoong

1. First I brown the  meat

2. heat the oil and add garlic, ginger, and onions

3. Add the meat

4. Then add squash and a little bit of water to cook and cook it for few minutes

5. Add the long beans and cook it for about 2 minutes or so

6. Then add the rest of the ingredients. 

7. Optional: when vegetables are about to cook,  I add shrimp paste

8. Done: I love it! Healthy, delicious, and it reminds me of home in Philippines.
