Tomato is considered as hot weather crop, so basically it's tomato season every summer. hihi,

My father loves planting veggies in the backyard.He has planted different kinds of veggies depending on the season,now that it's summer He has grown lots of tomatoes,talong,corn,talvos ng kamote,kangkong,upo at patola...

Tomatoes has the antioxidant called Lycopene.

Lycopene may help to ward against:
  • prostate cancer

  • 10 medium size tomatoes (sliced)
  • 1 clove of garlic (sliced)
  • 1 medium onion (sliced)
  • 1 medium size bell pepper (julliene)
  • 1 potato
  • 1 carrot
  • 2 tbsp cooking oil
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • salt and pepper
  • Italian Seasoning 
  • Cheese (optional)

Easy Peasy steps:
  1. Saute garlic and onion and tomatoes
  2. Add the chicken meat,saute for a minute.
  3. Pour water,Let it simmer until the meat is tender
  4. Add potatoes,bell pepper and carrots
