I have been cooking pancit almost every week, yes, kahit walang okasyon. Haha!
It's simple, easy and quick to cook. Not to mention, very affordable. Imagine, I can have a budget of just about Ph50-Ph100 (depends if you like your pancit with lots of veggies and extras, but even if it's just pechay baguio -- yes I use that as substitute to cabbage because it's much cheaper -- and a piece of carrot, okay pa rin.), and I can cook pancit which can serve three to four (even five) persons already. Mura na, busog ka pa!
Also, it's one of hubby's ultimate favorites! Our little boy loves it, too. Mana sa Tatay talaga. :-)

I really find it amusing when my baby starts to touch his tummy in a circular motion and say "Yummy!", like the main picture in the above collage. Kaaliw lang.
Anyway, I am really thankful that my son isn't a picky eater. He eats whatever ulam is available. I personally like ampalaya (bitter gourd) so the other day, I cooked Ginisang Ampalaya With Egg (another affordable and healthy dish). My son ate it with gusto!
Here's a collage I posted at Instagram.

You like pancit and ampalaya, too? What other affordable, healthy and yummy dish would you recommend? :-)
