Picadillo Soup

Even in a modern age, many still expect that the woman of the house is the greatest cook in the family. Well, not in our case. You see, I am proud to say that my husband is the better cook. He can whip up a new meal with just a few ingredients he's given. In fact, I learned a lot of home cook meals from him - mostly dishes that involved meat.

Oh, and he can do the groceries, too. 

I look forward to weekends when he can cook for us. The cleaning-up of the kitchen mess is assigned to me, of course. I can't complain. I love the set up.

When I signed up for the #isangkutsara (1 tablespoon) challenge of Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce through Mommy Bloggers Philippines, I already had my husband in mind. I know he can do a better job than me on creating a mouth-watering dish using beef.

Let me share with you my husband's recipe of Picadillo Soup.
