Ginisang Sayote (Sauteed Chayote)

It has been customary at home to have a vegetable dish to go with any (dry - fried/steamed) fish or meat dish in a meal. We were taught that vegetables are important so there's rarely a meal without them when we were growing up.

Sometimes, we would kid our lola (grandmother) how for her love of us apos (grandkids) she'd include a lot of meat in the vegetable side-dish that it almost looks good enough to be the main meal. We got so used to her style of cooking that now that I am already the one doing the cooking for my family...well, I also put a lot of meat in my veggie dishes turning it to a one-pot meal. Teehee! Ahh...I love my lola so much!
