Home cooking, eating, and surviving a health crisis (part 1)

The community quarantine prompted some of us to avail the work from home scheme. Aside from sticking with the targets and sending accomplishment reports, most of us must have been cooking regularly and are already a self-confessed cook by now. We make the most of whatever resources available since the majority of us have limited exposure outside and are discouraged from leaving home.

Things to do while on Community Quarantine

Now that efforts of controlling (and curbing) the covid-19 pandemic is reinforced, we are at the mercy of being holed up at home and getting bored and more likely to suffer domestic ennui. For an introvert like me, this is the life!

Here, in the course of the community quarantine (with Metro Manila in a lockdown) are some of the simple things to do to be productive even if office operations and procedures were abated:

Not Your Ordinary Banana Chips

Banana chips are crisp slices of the cardava banana variety which are usually eaten as a snack. Most banana chips are thinly sliced in bite-size servings and deep fried while some are baked and others dehydrated via drying or dehydrator machines.

Deep frying the bananas will make it crisp and crunchy. When the deep fried banana slices are drained and are in room temperature, one can eat them right away. Others enjoy banana chips by quickly dipping the fried chips in sweet syrup or dusted with flavored powders and seasonings.


ATI Today

Extension services continue to evolve. With the challenges that extension workers and farmers face, the Agricultural Training Institute (ATI) continues to explore various strategies to improve its efforts as the extension and training arm of the Department of Agriculture. In over 30 years, the ATI has celebrated various successes and learned from the lessons during hard times. Nonetheless, we are proud to be standing the test of time through the support of our partners and the clientele themselves. This is the ATI Today, more committed to bring you extension services beyond boundaries.
