Anyway, during one of our trips to the grocery, a salesperson approached us, offering a free taste of Filipino-style hotdogs under the brand called Virginia. Hubby said, no thank you, I don't eat pork. The salesperson replied that it doesn't have pork in it, then I remember Askim's request to have hotdogs for her baon. She said her closest friend at school always brings rice and hotdogs for snack and she wants it, too. End of the story, we tasted the hotdogs, liked the flavor, and included a pack to our cart.
Now here's the bento lunchbox I created for my grade-schooler with rice and cocktail hotdogs.
I added tomato slices and buttered mixed vegetables for her side dish.
Hubby and I agreed to avoid always giving our kids with processed meat. As much as possible, we will limit buying hotdogs and sausage to once or twice a month. As for the pork consumption, I do have the freedom to eat it, though sparingly, thinking that too much fat is unhealthy.
