Someone Is So Happy Right Now :)

My son, Charles has always been a picky eater. But lately, he tries to eat other food rather than asking for burritos, fries and cheeseburgers. Tonight, Doug and I were delighted when Charles ate most of his pork chop and fries from my plate before he got his own plate. Not planning to eat what we had for dinner was on his mind though he had a change of heart, haha. 


Vanilla Ice Cream



Pork Chop and Fries

For dessert, he had vanilla ice cream drizzled with chocolate syrup. Oh my, his dessert looks so delicious but I already had enough sweets for the night. Munching chocolate chip cookies and oreos as my lunch keeps my tummy full. Oh well, I always eat what I want and don’t eat when I don’t feel like it. 

Ever since, I have not put myself on a diet nor exercise but I guess I should be doing them sometime soon. Instead of waiting my son, on the car rider lane I always parked the car at the parking lot and walk to pick him up. Anyway, it has been a good day compared to days I had the past couple of days. My migraines and allergies has been really bad plus getting headaches makes my life miserable. 

At least though someone is so happy right now who gets to play NCAA Football on the X-Box 360. Charles, wanted so long to play football and he was so happy when he won his first game, Missouri Tigers against Oklahoma Sooners. Playing football on X-Box he thinks it is better than Mine Craft.


Hercules Stands

So if you have a flute or piccolo you want to make sure you have everything you need for your instrument. A good case, cleaning solutions, and a really nice holder are all must haves. The Hercules Stands series are some of the best you can buy and at prices that do not break the bank. Go check them out and you will find a great holder at a great cost.

Pulled Pork

I like BBQ ribs rather than pulled pork. But when I tasted my sister-in-law’s pulled pork when we visited, I thought hmmm I would try to make it at home. My hubby likes pulled pork a lot, why not give it a try? Got my new Betty Crocker crockpot that I got from Viggle, by watching television to put it to the test. As soon as I got up this morning I put pork sirloin on the crockpot on low, season with salt and pepper and cooked for about 8 hours. Shredded the meat, added BBQ sauce (Head Country) tasted really good.

Though I was worried at first when I left the house to picked up Charles at school. I have not used the crockpot without me being around the house, leaving it plugged in makes me feel uncomfortable. Got so many what “if” buzzing on my mind. Gladly, Doug, got home before I left so someone is around the house. Cooking on the crockpot makes my life easier as I don’t have to watch it over and over again. Easy to clean because you can use crockpot liner. 

Surely, my Betty Crocker crockpot is going to be my bff. There are tons of recipe that I could try for sure Doug, would love it as well. Well, he always likes when I cook and he always says; it tastes really delicious. When someone is cooking for you, you should be thankful, less complaints haha.


Huge Sale On Instruments

I have blogged many times out about my son, Charles, and his instruments. I have also told you about many great accessories and musical equipment of all time. My favorite musical website is the Musician’s Friend. It just so happens that the Musician’s Friend website is having a huge sale on many great instruments, stands, amps and everything else you may want or need for any instrument.

Afritada & Pancit

Few days ago, I cooked Afritada with a new added ingredient to it, raisins. I have not used raisins before so I was wondering what it would taste like. When the dish was cooked it was delicious to eat though Doug, was not a big fan with raisins on it. He just does not like raisins. Charles never tried to eat it either.I also really loved my pancit as did Doug. Rice noodles is not Doug’s favorite type of pancit as he likes the yellow ones. Charles, also likes the bigger noodles better.

Pancit

Getting a thumbs down from Charles was just like a big disappointment to me as I have been trying to let him eat more foods. All I hear are: hamburger, fries, and beefy nacho grillers every time Charles, wants to eat. When I told him we are going to visit to the Philippines he asked me if there’s McDonald’s in there. I said; yes. It is much better compared to McDonald’s here in the US. They serve fried chicken, spaghetti, etc. Then he asked me again if they have fries and hamburger. I guess those are the only fast foods that Charles is looking forward to eat once we visits the Philippines. His leftover chicken wings adobo have been sitting in the fridge for many days now and looks like he’s not planning to eat them again. Charles loves the wings but does not want them as leftovers. I guess my boys are both just really picky eaters.
