Mais con Yelo

Summer is officially here, that’s what PAG-ASA announced last Monday. But, who needs formal announcements when your aircon is already demanding for time-out. To beat the scourging heat, I decided its but just that we dine-out (that’s to eat our merienda outside the house). I initially planned to make home-made halo-halo (as inspired by an article on yahoo news) but the ube-halaya and the leche flan I ordered didn’t reach my hand. So there, we settled for the less lucrative mais con yelo.

1 can kernel corn (supply from kapamilya abroad)
1 can evaporated milk (also from the same supplier)
Sugar
Ice cubes

1. Mix all ingredients together according to your taste (and capacity)
2. Best enjoyed under the sun.

My take: There’s no substitute for the real thing. I missed the thrill of kernelling the corn and boiling it, but as they say “the best things in life are free”, I couldn’t complain. Also, I still prefer shaved iced because the ice becomes part of the meal, but I cannot find our shaver.
Tip: Send your kid away from home so you can concentrate on looking the tools you need, in my case the ice shaver. Ms. L was lurking as if she wants to play hide-and-seek with the shaver inside.. umm, wherever its hiding.
The verdict: Mr. M thinks it's better with leche flan. Leche... flan? Choosy pa, sarap naman ah, chill to the bones, right Miss L?
