food covers

how do you like our organic food covers? as you know we have an open kitchen that serves as a dining room, and it’s summer here. put one and one together and what do you get? flies in the morning and moths in the evening, and the occasional lizard droppings from the ceiling. so it’s always best to protect the food on the table. underneath the covers, made up of baskets originally made as “pugad” (chicken nests) and garden nets (kulambo woud have been better), are dishes that are stacked on plates laden with water, serving as moats, to protect against the ants. well, i told you, it’s summer πŸ˜›

    wow, those are really nice! and i do remember the flies, the moths, the ants and the mosquitoes; i certainly don't miss them πŸ˜› i remember we had something similar to this in kilo β€” not quite as fancy, though. just big plastic covers with tiny holes. we also had a “sanggaan” β€” a very low table with its legs standing in little tubs of water to protect the food from ants.

    yup, we still have some of those plastic covers, but they're not as nice to look at πŸ˜›
    i bought the materials and had them made by a former worker in my lolo's woodcrafts business (i wonder if i sell them, if anybody would be interested to buy. he.he)

    yup, my lola used to have that “sangaan” too. πŸ™‚ i think i saw a store somewhere still using that. i'll visit it and take a photo πŸ˜€
