What do you like to eat on a Rainy Day?

Summer is done and it's now he start of the rainy season. When rain starts falling and cool winds starts blowing people in my country generally looks for hot congee and hot bowls of soupy noodles with an assortment of toppings.
Rice based congee is called, "Lugaw", Arroz Caldo", "Goto" while noodles in soup is called "Mami", "Ramen", "Lomi", "Batchoy".  Both dishes has a variety of toppings that ranges from vegetables, eggs, meats and innards, and can have different flavors from sweet, sour, spicy, salty or a merry mix of it.  But what people like about it is that it is hot and is good to eat when the climate is wet and cold.

It's summer where I live. Well they say it is but it's not really until until this month around the 21st. It does rain during the summer. I love ice cream on hot days. I dunno if it's raining. I guess we eat chicken soup on cold days.

Wouldn't it be funny if we kept eating cold food during rainy days? I still have ice cream whether it's hot or cold. The only question is if you can afford to buy it frequently. That's the hot and cold season for my wallet.

Hahahaha You alone there mate. Personally I do not think that I can ever eat anything that cold when it is cold outside. Even when I need to drink water at such times I always boil it or atleast pass some warmth.

Batchoy is good for me in a rainy day. I like it very much. It was during the 80's that its a hit in our place. Almost all the restaurant aree selling that. But now only a few was left.

I think its good. It has not become common. Its good that you miss that food from time to time. Over eating of that food is not good also. During the rainy season that is my favorite food.

Taking time to enjoy pap with some bean cakes is one thing that I enjoy during the summer. It is the type of meal that you can't resist especially when milk and enough tea is added to the pap as well. We take it every morning and it is great for many of us.

I like using coffee on my bread. It just adds a certain flavor to it. The taste is sweet and mildly bitter. I think we all have favorite foods to eat at certain times and occasions.

I agree with you. Having coffee on bread is good. Its good during rainy days.

I am from Philippines. Before when I still in the province, my mother always bring me to that specific food vendor with table whenever I accompanied her to market. She always take me there especially rainy days. What I have remember was she always order white puto (bikong puti ) in tagalog with hot chocolate or what we called tablia that's why when its rainy day, I always wanted to eat white puto with a sip of tablia during rainy days.

I love to eat rice cakes and other glutinous rice sweet snacks like "Suman" which is sweet glutinous rice wrapped in coconut leaves and boiled in coconut milk, partner this snack with some hot chocolate made from "Tablea" or Pure ground chocolate made into Tablets the size of a dollar coin and then mix with hot milk and some water and you've got a perfect early morning or late afternoon snack. My late grandmother used to prepare this when I was a little boy and it was so tasty.

Sometimes its good to live in a province because they prepare those kinds of delicious food that's different from the city. People living in the province are most probably use to prepare those kinds of food and that's what likely we missed when we live in the province before.

That sounds tasty. I like eating pudding because it makes me happy. I've also noticed how pudding is made as a joke in popular media. I guess everyone likes to eat it as well.

I can't explain the taste but you have to put sugar on it to become tasty because its taste bitter like coffee. It will be more tasty and delicious if you put cream or milk. Its more likely taste as cocoa but its way more delicious for me.

It's close to what I was thinking. I don't normally like bitter taste. But for pure cocoa, maybe I'll consider it. Especially, since it's great for chocolate drinks.

I guarantee its really delicious than cocoa. What country are you from? I don't know if its available in your country but its popular here in Philippines especially in provinces.

My tongue doesn't recover quickly. It takes me 1 week before it heals completely. It was very uncomfortable especially when eating. Yes me too, there is one brand that I really like, like when you mix it with chocolate, cocoa or coffee it really taste good.

That's sad. I guess yours was much hotter than mine. If mine had been boiling hot, I would have taken longer to heal. The sensation of a burned tongue is weird and unpleasant.

I like that we've both found brands we like. It's funny how Coffee Mate has so many flavors. I used to only see the regular flavor.



Enter a reason for deleting this comment

edencaga

Yes, that's true. After that incident happened, I always mix my hot water with a little bit cold water as I don't want to happen it again. Yeah, same here. I always look for an original flavor or regular flavor. I don't know why but maybe its just that its way more delicious when you mix it with milk than of those instant flavored coffee, cocoa or something. It's more tastier.



Enter a reason for deleting this comment

Steve5

Yeah. Better to do it that way. So that we can avoid burning our mouths with hot drinks.

I think so too. My favorite flavor right now French Vanilla. It tastes and smells so good. Others seem to enjoy Coffee Mate's coconut flavor as well.



Enter a reason for deleting this comment

edencaga

Yeah. I love vanilla flavor. Whenever we buy some shake or something hot to drink, It's either I choose chocolate or vanilla than any other flavor. I can't stand the taste of coconut. I knew that my mother when she was pregnant with me she always seek for coconut which is I think very opposite happened to me.



Enter a reason for deleting this comment

Steve5

That's funny. I wonder why others love coconut flavor. Maybe it's because of its sweet taste and scent.

Vanilla is like the first flavor to come to our minds when we think of desserts. Like vanilla ice cream. It's considered the basic flavor of sweet stuff.



Enter a reason for deleting this comment

edencaga

Yeah! We're very much a like. It's always been a vanilla flavor since then. I think it's because it's kinda taste like milk but taste sweet and I love milk very much.

Steve5

I think so too. Well, vanilla is really the most basic flavor for sweets and desserts.

But just because it's the most common doesn't make it any less tasty.

There's even a saying that you can never beat the classics. Other flavors may come and go. But vanilla is here to stay.

I wonder if it's bitter tasting. I heard that pure cocoa isn't as sweet as what we're used to. Though, I imagine it's a bit of an acquired taste.

This is one of my favorite traditional food in the Philippines, the rice cake or puto, I remember when there was a "pa dasal" or need to pray the dead, something like that. LOL, my grandmother used to cook this with sotanghon, and this is the good combination for me.

Yeah! It is somehow similar to our province but whenever we visit there in Holy week especially easter, elders prepare what they called puto and dragon (a taste like coffee with ginger something like that). I just missed the province of my grandmother.

My province is in bulacan, where there're a lot sweet foods and different kind of rice cake, or "kakanin" that's what they call the variety of sweet foods made of rice. Sad to say, I also don't have time to go back to the province because of work.

Where in Bulacan? I am currently living here in Marilao Bulacan because of my father and brother's job. Our province is in Cagayan de Oro but my grandmother's province is in Butuan.

It depends on the weather. When it is rainy and cool, I like soup..if it is a warm day, I don't really eat anything different than I eat any other day. For me, it really depends on the temperature outside what I will eat and enjoy.

Soups such as our local Okro soup is really nice to take whenever it is rainy since it is going to help one feel warm as enough spice is used for the soup. So, I agree with you that soup is really nice when we talk of cold weather as well.

I agree. Though, it's probably not for me. I feel uncomfortable drinking hot soup since it makes my throat dry. I prefer cold soup since it doesn't make me feel warm.

Well, I live on a tropical country, so usually rainy days are not cool indeed. Based on that, the only issue with rainy days is to deal with staying indoors at your job, school, or home. But, you can see people like to eat sweet or salty snacks, specially if you have to share them with friends or colleagues. In case we have a cold day, you can see us having hot coffee, tea, or cocoa. And I would add some home made cookies or cake too.

Rainy days can be a bit depressing so it is usually good to have something to eat that might lift our spirits. I sometimes like to bake something if it is cool enough to do so. It can make the day go past faster.

True, that's why I always have snacks at home. Sometimes I just cook my own snacks, and that's even healthier. My sister and I, enjoy eating popcorn and watch a movie while the rain keep us at home, and if the electricity goes down we just play Jenga or Uno cards. We also eat crackers with a home made dip, like cream cheese/onion or sweet and sour pepper dip.

Sounds like you have a nice system for whatever may happen. I also don't like it whenever the electricity goes out. It's hard to find something to pass the time by.

Agree. Honestly, once you're used to Internet, TV, video games, you can feel lost and bored when the power goes out. But, we grew in the 80's, when board games where the best option while raining, so we always have those that come in handy. A quick cheese/onion/mayo dip, some crackers, and board games, can fix boring for a while.

Steve5

Me too. It's a struggle with people living in the modern age. Actually, a more effective means of passing time would be games like Dungeons and Dragons.

Stuff with role playing usually helps pass the time. Kids somehow find it easier since their imagination is still very active.

So true. I think some people experience seasonal depression because of it. Something like that. But I've heard that some people sleep better during this time. So I guess sleeping helps a lot.

This can be a lot of things for different people. It could be playing games. Some find comfort in reading. Others just like watching TV. But baking is definitely a great way to spend your time while raining.

We also stay indoors when it is rainy and prefer to have the snacks delivered if possible. If there aren't any available fast food delivery, we go to the nearest convenience stores to buy the typical snack. Some chips and soda are what we usually buy and we have a movie marathon while eating.

Lucky you, at least you have a very efficient delivery system. We really have few delivery services, and they don't reach most of the city, just like the central zone. Convenience stores tend to be my salvation LOL, usually I grab some snacks, or maybe food that I need to cook homemade snacks. Besides movie marathon, we can also do some laundry meanwhile, and we keep our clothes clean while the rain keep us in the house.

Oh favorite food day. That's a good one, I should use that tip too. Pizza it's a good one, and fresh cooked one is delicious. I used to have frozen ones, which are a good option when you can't order, but what to do when the power goes out too? We can't use microwave or kitchen, and with the rain pouring outside, I don't see any chance of bbq. Still a pizza lover anyway.

Please I would like to know if the season of the year matters in one having to eat or not? How is this even something that needs much debate? We all eat during both summer and winter season in order to still remain alive and be healthy. What might be considered is the kind of food one eats in such different seasons of the year.

Well that's good choice of food selection that you have there but personally, what matter most to me is enjoying my meal and getting fed well.

"...it doesn't matter if it is hot or cold, sunny or rainy..."

You know this is one thing that I never quite understood. A lot of people feel like they are obligated to eat certain foods at certain times, depending on the season or weather in general. I remember wanting to eat ice cream in the wintertime, and my parents would say, "Ice cream? When it's below freezing outside?! Why would you want ice cream?" Um, why not? Just because it's cold doesn't mean you can't eat ice cream. It's like saying you can't drink hot coffee/tea during the summer.

I love eating cold stuff during winter. Practically for the same reasons you've mentioned. No one likes rushing an ice cream. And even if you ate it fast, it would still be melting due to the hot weather. So it's really nice to eat ice cream during winter time.

I think I eat less during the rainy season because it's colder and I get too lazy to go out (when I have nothing to do) so I just stay in bed, and because I'm using less energy, I also don't get hungry as much. Also, I love eating ice cream and I don't really feel like it during the rainy season.

“...I get too lazy to go out (when I have nothing to do) so I just stay in bed...”

Now that is a statement that I can relate to, all too well. I work from home, and I’m not a very social person, so I have basically no incentive to go outside unless it’s to buy food. Today it was raining, and while my appetite could’ve gone for some easy take-out today, my brain basically convinced myself “Eh, we’re not that hungry.” It’s been raining on and off every week for the past two months, so because I never know if I’ll want to go out for food, I’ve actually been eating healthier home cooking more often.

If it's cold and rainy outside I usually like soup - especially ramen! The noodles make it hearty and filling so it's the perfect cold weather dish. If it's warmer though and rainy outside, I tend to eat pretty normal stuff. We have a rainy season here in the first month of summer, and I tend to just eat normal summer-time foods - salads, fruit, yogurt, things like that!

Soup's are my pick on rainy day's. Soup's are a very good in warming up during cold days. It is also delicious and nutritious at the same time so you will never go wrong with soups.

It's been raining quite a bit in my area, so I suppose this topic has been on my mind lately. I've found that on rainy days, I generally gravitate towards soups. Sometimes ramen soup, sometimes udon soup, sometimes egg drop or tomato soup. Just soups in general seem to be on my menu for those damp, rainy days.

Also, for some reason I feel more attracted to cakes and pies when it rains. Rainy weather feels cozy to me, so I find myself wanting to eat cozy, comfort food on those days.

I like chocolate chip cookies. I always have milk because they taste great together. Though, mine sounds more like a kid's version compared to fancy biscuits.

I love ramen, I love to eat this during night shift even not raining as long as the weather is cold, ramen is the best food to eat. I always have this in my apartment and a lot of easy to cook noodles. Aside from it's really delicious, it's also help me to save a lot, because they are cheaper. LOL.

I like ramen too. Though, I don't like the instant version. The authentic cooked ramen tastes so different from the ones we get in the convenience store. The flavor and aroma smell so good.

Yeah of course. I just have these instant noodles with different flavors just for emergency purposes. lol. Beside, Instant noodles is not really good in our health, I have a co worker who had UTI problem because of too much eating instant noodles. I just eat real ramen maybe just every after payday.

That's nice. I was worried that you were eating instant noodles frequently. They do more harm than good.

And what's funny is that eating authentic cooked ramen is good for your health. The difference is so great when it comes to instant and real food.

LOL, yeah, that's the reality right now.

I Just had dinner and it's Chicken Adobo with some Rice and Hot Instant Ramen Noodles, it was delicious, well I cooked it the way I was taught by my grandmother, the traditional way of cooking Adobo.

Here's my recipe, it's called Adobong Tagalog.

1 Chicken cut into 8-10 pieces.
2 Heads of garlic, crushed.
2 Pcs Bay Leaf or local Laurel.
1 teaspoon ground black pepper.
2 teaspoons salt.
2 chillies chopped.
1/2 Cup White Vinegar or any vinegar would do.
1/3 Cup Soy Sauce
1 Cup Oil
1 Cup Water

I love to make this dish because you just mix everything in a saucepan in medium low heat and let it simmer until water evaporates. It has lots of oil because it's best eaten after a day or two. It is a common dish made in olden days when there were no refrigerators yet and dishes were made to last several days.

It's super delicious with plain or fried rice or bread.

The foods I always crave during the Rainy season are Chicken, Beef, and Pork soup (Tinola) and some Noodle Dishes like Ramen and that Noodle Dish from Chowking which I forgot the name but it's really yummy. I actually love anything sour and hot during the rainy season and any soup is good except for Fish soup because I'm not fond of eating Fish soup. However, soups are never complete without rice so I always accompany my soup cravings with rice.

Yeah, you're right, Chicken tinola is one of the best food for me during rainy season. This chicken soup with papaya is one my grandmother's best recipe, and I always requested it during heavy rain.

jaybee19

Exactly. Chicken tinola tastes different on the rainy season maybe because of the old weather. As much as i want to eat tinola, I really hate papaya and so I don't want any of it on my chicken tinola. Btw, the chicken I like the most for tinola is the native chicken. Although it's a little bit thinner than the chickens from the market, it tastes better because it's organic.

I really like the papaya in tinola but just only half cooked when you bite it, it's a little crunchy. My grandmother in our province used to do that, she always use the native chicken, the taste is really different to the normal chicken, even the soup.



Enter a reason for deleting this comment

jaybee19

I see. Papaya is truly crunchy when it's half cooked and most people like to eat it that way. And yes, native chicken tastes different and the soup it makes is very rich and tasty especially that elders in the province loves to add herbs and other natural ingredients to the soup in order to eliminate the smell, to make the soup richer, and to also make it somewhat like a protection for colds during the rainy season.

Did you ever try the pinikpikan in baguio? They will brutally kill the native chicken, and there's no other ingredients aside from water, they will just boil the chicken and that's it, but the taste is like tinola, even without any spices.



Enter a reason for deleting this comment

jaybee19

Really? I haven't heard about it ho because I live in Central Visayas and I'm yet to go to Baguio hopefully soon. Do they remove the entrails of the chicken before they put it on boiling water or is it the same with how we traditionally cook tinola?



Enter a reason for deleting this comment

aeon

Yeah, of course, they will also cut it into small pieces or enough size, but the way they cooked it is really brutal, some of my friends call it, killing me softly. Using the stick, they will beat the live chicken all over the body until it's almost die or looks paralyzed.

Oh, that sounds tasty. I like having soup meals as well. I agree about them tasting great with rice. It's perfect for any weather. Though, if it's hot outside, I'd prefer to eat it after it's cooled down a bit.

Me too. I also love to eat soups even on a hot day although just like you, I also make sure to cool it down first before I eat it. I actually love to eat it with hot rice but if the weather's hot, I love to eat soups with left over rice or cold rice.

I think the keyword for any sort of hot food is "warm." No one really likes it hot as it can easily burn our tongue. A pleasant feeling is present when having warm food. But there are soups that are eaten cold. Hahaha!

I really like something hot of course, like soup and hot pies. I dread the cold and also enjoy cooking and preparing food. It really makes me wanna lay down and sleep all day when the rain is pourin' outside. I'm thinking of a spicy chicken soup to make the evening hotter. Soups are the ones to soothe you when it's cold and raining outside and you're just feeling lazy the whole day because of the coldness. Stew is another option as well and is easy to prepare.

I don't like spicy food. It makes me feel uncomfortable. But I understand the appeal. It tastes great due to the spices. I only don't like it because sometimes I get stomach aches and the tingly feeling on the mouth is not for me.

I live in a tropical country where the only season is either rainy or sunny. I love it when rainy season comes. I love how the raindrops look on cars' glass windows and I love the sound of the rain falling from the clouds. I am a pluviophile, I think. In a rainy season, I agree, there are some foods that I want to eat. Since the weather is moist and chilly, I like it when the food is either hot or spicy. I love to eat Ramen, spicy noodles and drink a cup of hot coffee or tea from time to time.

What I love to eat on rainy days are soups and hot pies! When I was a kid, I always remember my grandmother preparing something in the kitchen on a rainy evening and we're all excited because you can really smell the deliciousness of the mushroom soup she is cooking. Rainy season is here and I actually have my grandmother's recipe for the amazing taste of the soups and stews she always make for us. I also like cinnamon rolls and tea on afternoon snack when it's raining outside.

During rainy days I love to prepare some sweet snacks either baked or fried. One of my favorites is Churros which is prepared by frying it's batter in hot oil. It's best dipped in hot chocolate or hot coffee. Another fried snack I always make is called "bicho-bicho" or Fried Donut rolled in sugar, it's one of my favorites and is delicious when eaten on a rainy day.

In my country also the rainy season has just started . It is also really really cold. This is the season to over eat if you are not careful.You need to realize what season you are in and plan accordingly. I try to stay low carb and that seems to work. I tend to eat beef, lamb, chicken and fish. I keep away from the carbs because they are so tempting.When its cold you feel like having bread and butter. Just looking at it adds the pounds on! I also make lots of healthy soups during the weekend, that I can just defrost and have as and when I feel like.

Whenever it's raining a lot of people here would line up on popular street shawarma outlets and in one of them. This middle eastern dish is the only middle eastern dish that Filipinos love. It's healthy because it's a combination of vegetables and meats, it could be either beef, lamb or chicken and it's a delight to eat as a snack or meal whenever it's raining. It's hot and spicy and affordable.

I like to eat those food that have soup during rainy season because it give us the feeling of contentment especially if it is a spicy one. Rainy seasons give us the cold weather which is really perfect for soup base foods such as lomi, goto and chicken noodle soup. I feel more convenient during rainy seasons whenever I can taste those food because they give me some sort of extra energy to enjoy for the day.

Soup. Chicken soup and "champorado" are the best during rainy seasons. "Champorado" is a kind of chocolate soup in our country. It is similar with "lugaw", I think some of the comments above explained what lugaw is, but champorado is the same, it's just that we are using chocolate powder and sugar for the flavor.
I also loved eating icecream eventhough it is raining. It depends on my mood actually What do you like to eat on a Rainy Day?

We're having Spicy Chicken Curry for lunch today. It's really a different kind of curry, it has a milder sweet, spicy, salty flavor and taste because we put in a lot of coconut milk in it until the color turns to somewhat light olive green. We also use bell peppers, fried potatoes, sliced eggplants and hot chillies to make it. I like eating spicy chicken curry on a rainy day, I don't know why, but this dish always make me feel good.

I am from the Philippines. In a tropical country like mine, rainy season is not as cool as other countries. The temperature ranges from 20-29 degrees Celsius when it is raining.

Though it is not cool enough to feel comfortable, we Filipinos love eating hot and a bit spicy with the touch of sourness and sweetness. A bit weird isn't it? We have different soups that give a flavorful taste from, sour, sweet, salty and even bitter. Some of them are Bulalo, Papaitan, Sinigang, Nilaga. All of them can be added with fish sauce with cayenne pepper. Also, they are good with steaming hot rice!

Whenever it's raining in the afternoon or early morning I always crave for a bowl of hot Chocolate Porridge locally called Champorado. It's basically ground powdered cocoa beans boiled with white rice and glutinous rice, it's sweetened with sugar and I like to put powdered or condensed milk. It's sweet and it's best eaten with some fried crispy dried salted fish but I like to eat it with a toasted butter and cheese sandwich. The saltiness from the cheese and butter contrasts the sweetness of the porridge making me crave for more.
