Pork B-B-Q Ribs

Whenever I cook some seafoods, I make sure to cook something that my husband son could eat because they are not very fond of seafoods.  I made this pork BBQ ribs when me and Rylie  devoured on a the shrimp stew (sinigang) the other day!

Fat Burning Foods

Here's a good article that I found browsing the net. It is about the fat burning foods that helps you burn fat. According to the source online the following foods can really increase your metabolism and results to burning fats.

1. Cayenne Pepper
2. Ginger
3. Cinnamon
4. Apples and Berries
5. Citrus Fruits
6. Soybeans
7. Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs)
8. Garlic
9. Seaweed
10. Green Tea

Okay, I love cayenne pepper, I uses ginger in cooking, and we love apples and berries.  Citrus fruits are always  present in our table, I don't like garlic but I use it when I cook  since hubby loves it.  My kids love seaweed and for green tea, I am not sure if the regular tea counts because we all love tea!

Take note ladies, this might help you lose those unwanted flab in some part of your bod.  Maybe that's one reason why I am not fat, ahem!  Well, I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings okay, I just want to express my opinion about this matter.  What is your take on this?

Crescent Egg

I missed posting on this blog. I wasn't able to participate to food and other memes this week but hopefully, I would be able to stretch out my schedule next week. Anyhow, sharing you here the crescent egg that I made a couple of days ago.MellowYellowBadge

This is my husband's idea, to make a squidward image out of the eggs and sausage in order to entice the kids to eat lol.

Hot & Sweet Peppers

A couple of years ago, our neighbor gave us some hot peppers. I saved the seeds and planted them this year. I thought I won't get any fruit because I planted them a little late but now, I have lots of them. I am worried that some of them may not mature and get caught by the cold season.

I freeze most of the ripe ones I got from the garden, so I would have enough to use during freezing months. I think I would do this every year so I won't have to buy plants from the store for my garden.

Our neighbor just gave me some sweet peppers and cherry tomatoes as well as big ones the other day. If you need some peppers and tomatoes, come at our home and I'll give you some hehehe.

Snacks

I still have few packages of lucky me pancit canton that I bought at the oriental store so I decided to cook some the other day for merienda.

We also have some few slice left of the italian bread that we bought from the store so I decided to make some pizza bread . I brushed the bread with butter, put some pizza sauce, sliced some red bell pepper, and I I used lunch meat because I did not have pepperoni at the fridge.
I topped it off with cheese and we had a yummy snack at home!

Have a safe and fun weekend everyone.

Black Olive as a Snack

One of the few snacks that my burritos love to munch in  is black olives. I am not crazy about black olives but for some reason my angels love them especially our son.

They can eat one big can of black olives in one setting.



They found so much fun in eating it as they can stick 'em into the tips of their fingers lol.

Here are some benefits of black olives according to ehow.com.


Black olives are a cholesterol free food and contain very little fat. The fat that is contained in olives is monounsaturated fat and there are only seven calories in one large black olive. These fruits can make a tasty snack addition with little health concern.

Lasagna and Choc Cake

The day before my FIL's birthday, he told me that he is craving for something that his wife used to make. I asked him what it was and he couldn't remember what it is called. n the day of his birthday, I baked a pan of lasagna at home and brought it at his house. He was so happy and told me "That is what I am craving for!". Hmmmnn, glad you liked it Dad. Anyhow, the lasagna was sold out, no left over the next day lol.

My friend Raquel brought a chocolate cake for Dad. I really don't like sweets but this one is an exception, it is so delish! Thanks Manay!

Home Made Tocino

Lately, hubby was craving for tocino. I can't cook any because we did not find any at the oriental store. However, I remember buying a tocino mix the last time we went to the store so I tried to make some. I bought a pack of pork stew meat and follow the direction from the Mam sita pack. I marinated it for 24 hours and cooked it the next morning.

Thanks to these packages because we can really be a good cook even if we don't know how to cook lol.
The result was fabulous. EJ and Rylie even liked it! To add a little twist, I sprinkled some steak seasoning when I was cooking it.

Hubby and Rylie ate it with rice and egg while I ate mine with Kimchee hehehe. I am not really fond of sweet stuff so to cntrast the sweetness of the tocino, I ate it with something spicy.

I know, it's not really a homemade because I used some tocino mix but let's just pretend that it is lol.

Have a safe and fun weekend everyone.

Labor Day 2010

Good day everyone, how was your Labor Day celebration? Our's was mellow, we went to the store to pick up some school supply for our daughter then we visited my FIL for a coule of hours. We came back home and proceeded to a a party where a Filipina invited us over for a labor day cookout. My husband made leche flan to bring. There are so many foods (Pinoy foods, yummy!) It was a Fil-Am family day yesterday at her house.

Here's Rylie with Tiffany. My daughter is a month older than her. Tiffany however was not admitted to a kindergarten because because she was one week behind the cut off age requirement. It's very strict in here, if you are not on the age requirement, you won't be admitted. Unlike in the Philippines where you can be enrolled in grade one even if you are younger than the normal age.

A new Filipina I met yesterday, she was grilling chicken BBQ hehehe. Here's Chelsea's new Mommy. She has three sons so Chelsea is her only daughter lol. It's interesting that Chelsea still remember us. I am glad that Chelsea is being well taken care of.

EJ was not a happy camper, "Mommy, the girl's won't shre the bike" he said. So Ate Agnes dug out her kids toys and let the boys played with it. Now, they're all happy.
Oh look at those yummy foods. I did not eat much but, I BROUGHT SOME HOME LOL. Alrighty folks, I am doing some laundry right now, thanks for dropping by.

Sandwich Recipes

Having a school girl is a joy and at the same time stressing sometimes lol. I am still not used to her being away from my sight so I am always worried. Worried of how she acts, how she is doing in school, and all that stuff. We asked Rylie if she wants to try the hot lunch being served in school but she did not like the idea. At first she said she will try it but I told her that whatever will be served there, that is what she will eat. So she decided for me to just prepare her lunch.

So every night, we would talk about what she wants to eat the next day and that is what I prepare. For breakfast, she always want to eat coco wheat, oatmeal, waffles, and sometimes I served fried rice.
She prefers canned fruits or fresh fruit for snacks, and most of the time I make sandwiches, pasta salad, or broccoli mac and cheese for her lunch. There are days that she just want snack and just eat lunch at home.
I received these recipes of lunch sandwiches that most kids will like from parents.com. So for those who prepare lunches for their kids like me, you might want to check it out below (not a sponsored post).
We’ve assembled inspired recipes that will please your whole crowd. Trade your standard ham-and-cheese for a Cuban, a grilled comfort food piled with roast pork and melted Swiss. The secret ingredient in our pulled pork sandwich is root beer. How’s that for innovative?
