i am craving...

For tortang talong (eggplant omelet) and stir-fried water spinach. Thinking about eating these food with hot steamed rice and cold water on the side makes me drool. The problem is I don't have eggplant available and I have not seen water spinach since summer of last year. So these cravings will remain just that, cravings. Until I chance upon these vegetables at the Asian store the next time I do my grocery shopping there. Sometimes it is awful when cravings for tropical vegetables hit me because of their availability (or non-availability) in the place where we are at. Next time if and when I find water spinach I will try to plant some and see if the plant will survive here in the mountains. I know eggplants do because I did plant a few last summer even if I did not get much out of it. I will have to think of something else to fix to satisfy my cravings.
