Food and Blessing

You need:
1/2k ground beef
2 cups elbow macaroni, cooked
chopped onions
chopped green bell pepper
1 can (8oz) tomato sauce
1 cup grated parmesan cheese mix with 1 cup mozarella cheese
1.4 teaspoon parsley
dash of pepper
3 cup milk
3 eggs beaten

What to do:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a skillet, cook ground meat, green pepper and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain to remove excess fat. Add tomato sauce, milk, salt, pepper and parsley. Heat over medium heat for 5 minutes. Remove from heat add egg and blend well.


Place half the macaroni in a baking dish, pour half of the meat sauce then top with half part of the cheese. Place the remaining macaroni on top of it. Again, pour all the meat sauce and top again with the remaining cheese.
Bake for 30 minutes or until the cheese is bubbly.


I baked that for the first time. I wanted make something special last weekend to bring at my in-laws place because we have a new family member. My sister in law gave birth last January 6 to these two adorable twin girls....sasha and hanna. The most exciting was, the husband and I are gonna be their godparents. :)

Sorry I cannot tell which is which yet so lets call them the twins, hehehe They are so cute...


Old and not so New!

Look what I found while browsing my files. Hubz first ever phone bought in 1997, a bulky motorola. The slimmer phone is the one he still's a nokia unit, It was a gift I gave him last Christmas 2007. Just look at that old motorola phone, it's so huge. I am just glad cellphones now are smaller and lighter. :)

I first had my cellphone in 2001. A bosch model. Too bad I wasnt able to keep it. It got lost by a friend. Before I had a cellphone, I first carried a beeper,some called it pager. Do you still remeber what a beeper is? Well if not....beeper are just text messages created without the genius of the QWERTY keypad. So you gotta call the operator of your provider to send messages. That time it was cool! hahaha.

Anyway, what's your communication and gadget evolution!


Pork Teriyaki

I got this simple recipe in a local magazine (yummy mag) last Saturday. I tried it this morning and it taste fab.

Here's the simple instruction.

Fry the thinly sliced pork and drain excess oil. Set aside.

Prepare the Teriyaki sauce. In a pot, mix 1/4 cup water, 1/4 cup mirin, 1/3 cup sugar. Let it boil. Add 1/3 cup dark soy sauce. Then add grated ginger. Simmer for a minute. Thicken sauce with 1-1/2 tbsp cornstarch dissoleve in 1 tbsp water. Pour on top of fried pork.

Yummmm...rice please!


The Chicharon

My mom went to Nueva Ecija the other day and what did you know, she bough bunch of this...


Oh boy...I am on a diet albeit this pork crackling is as well as good to pass up. I ate few pieces...five small pieces, hubs on the other hand got some more pieces and ate it along with rice and the sauteed vegetable we had for dinner that night. It was good he exclaimed. Chicharon is a real favorite, with a good vinegar for dipping, I could finish the whole pack but I have to watch it. I don't want to add more pounds.

The pack of chicharon is still more than half filled at this moment. I still don't know when will I bite some pieces again. I could ask mom to cook sauteed munggo and replace the pork with this. Yummm!!!

If you have this pack of chicharon, what will you do with it?


Few Beginnings


After eating too much throughout the New Year feast, now comes husband's birthday. We had that pork barbecues last Saturday at my in-laws place. We celebrated my husband birthday a day earlier (his birthday falls on a Sunday). Happy Birthday Labs!!!!

Anyway, I have to start moving my body again. I gained 5 lbs, few more pounds, I will be overweight and I don't want that to happen.

Did you gained too? You want to join me in shedding those extra. It would be really fun to do it with you! :)

Have a great week everyone!!
