Picnic @ Tradewinds Park on Memorial Day (1)

Today we had a picnic at Tradewinds Park in Coconut Creek City. We arrived at 10AM just to stay away from the hot afternoon.


I made this sandwich a la "Subway" this morning for our brunch there.

These sandwiches I made were ready to pack for our brunch.

The rain was pouring hard on the way to pickup my in-laws.


Almost near at mom's place- the rain didn't pour that much.

When we arrived at mom's place the cloud was clear.


Florida weather is indeed quirky.

HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY!

Stands and Mounts


Which tv stands do you prefer; Corner TV stand, modular TV stand or flat panel TV stands? Too many choices with great ideas are hard to choose, right? This is why I always have a hard time to pick something I want to have especially if I only have to choose one. The best thing is I have plenty of time to think about it before I can finally decide which of which I should get. In life we have a lot of choices, and I always stand for what I have decide. If given a chance to pick one tv stand I would pick the flat panel- floor pedestal as shown photo's above. Chic right?

Oven Ready Lasagna (Vegetarian Style)

I'm no Giada De Laurentiis nor Ina Garten but I'm so proud of myself because I can cook the way I wanted to. They both really are my inspiration. Thanks to them because cooking is  now one of my hobbies and most of all I make my husband's tummy happy. Cooking is easy-- we don't need  to have a natural cooking talent for it, neither to be a chef! Unless you want to have your own unique recipe now that's another story. It's actually like when we study for a certain subject all we need to do is to follow the instructions.

Anyhow, noodles or pasta is one of our favorite. They simply amazing! I finally cook lasagna (vegetarian style) for the first time. Mother-in-law used to cook this for us but now it's my turn. Hey, this is good if you're dieting I know this may sounds cliche because its our perception that pastas are loaded of carbohydrate. No! It depends on how you cook and serve it.


Here's how:

Ingredients

1 (12oz.) package Oven Ready Lasagna
2 (15oz.each) containers Ricotta cheese
1 cup shredded (Rice made) Mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup grated Parmessan cheese
1 tbp. dried basil
1 (26oz.) jar of organic Miranara sauce
1/2 cup water
1 lb. Morning Star Soy fake ground beef (soy made), no need to cook!
or
1 lb. lean ground beef, cooked and drained

2 eggs (optional- for vegetarian)


To Cook

Preheat oven to 375 degree farenheit
In medium bowl, combine Ricotta, 1 cup Mozarella cheese,
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, eggs (optional), and basil; mix well.

In another medium bowl, combine spaghetti sauce, 1 cup water and the Soy ground beef; mix well.

Brush Lasagna with Olive oil. (optional)

In 9" x13" pan, spread 1 1/2 cup of meat sauce. Place 4 sheets of Lasagna over sauce. Spread 1/2 of the cheese mixture over Lasagna, top with 1/3 of meat sauce. Repeat layering once. Top with 4 sheets of Lasagna then sauce. Sprinkle with remaining Mozzarella and Parmesan cheese. Wrap the Lasagna tightly with a double layer of foil. Bake for 55 to 60 minutes or until the Lasagna is fork tender.

******

Sounds yummy right? I'll tell you this recipe really is good. The taste between Soy ground beef compare to real ground beef has no difference. I really can't tell the difference. I used all my cheeses made of rice instead of dairy cream because I intend to cook it as a vegetarian style. This way you will never gets high cholesterol. It's our choice anyway. But if you chose the regular style go for it just don't forget to take hydroxycut after eating to burn the fat. Heehee I kid, I kid! Okay folks, enjoy your meal!

Ciao.

Acne Treatment

We started to have Acne when we were preteen or teenager. Those acne problems horrified us. I still remember my bad experienced of having one until now. It suffer my attitude on dealing  with other people, I was so shy because I feel ugly with all those bad pimples. Good thing I found the best treatment for adult acne then it really is saved me.  My older sister recommended me an aloe vera astringent she uses for her acne too.

Adult acne is caused by lots of things, including stress, hormones, birth control pills, or even bad cosmetics. It can be frustrating to find a treatment for adult acne, because there are so many different options to choose from. Before you spend any more money on treatments consider to read the reviews of the products that you're going to get for you to find out the best way to treat  your acne.

TOMS Classic Shoes

Yesterday (Sunday) I went out with my in-laws, they bought plants at Home Depot. I should have bring my camera with me so I can take photos of those beautiful plants and flowers out there. Too bad I missed it. Mom said gardening is therapeutic that's why she loves to take care the plants. Anyway, we headed to Whole Food (it's in one area) right after we finished in Home Depot. While there I found this shoe... TOMS!




I so wanna get a pair of these shoes for a long time now. Love this yellow bridgeport linen classic in a particular. Mom agree with me, she likes it too! We bought hold our desires and we went out without taking it home. We promised to save money for now so that we can afford to buy it later.

Finding the Best Deals

Our economy here in the United States is declining very bad, no matter what you may have read or heard. Lots of people are complaining about on how to save money, especially those families that have children. Parents are having a hard time giving their children education because it is expensive. Also some people can't pay their monthly bills on time because they are running out of their budgeted money.It is very hard. But we know that there is not a problem that we can't find a solution to, because there is always a solution.

Many Insurance companies are here to help us to get cheapest auto insurance problems, like cheapestautoinsurance.net. They assist us by giving us many options for saving our money on how to get the affordable insurance and for us to understand the best coverage plans.

Another thing I learned is that my Gap insurance I got from my dealership for my new car is more expensive when I compare it to cheapestautoinsurance.net. I guess next time I will consider their services to assist my needs.

It's Just Another Manic Monday

Gosh, I've been busy lately. I need to update my blog quick! I have lots of projects to be finished soon, and I don't want backlog works.

What I have been up to lately? Well..... I went to see my girl friends the other day. We hangout in one of my GF's house. We cooked lots of food and talked until almost midnight, girls never gets tired of talking about life in general over and over again sometimes we forgot the time is running. I'm glad I went though because I had fun. Also, I back to my exercises now after I got sick. Oh, how I  needed it to energize my body again and can't wait to get tone! And finally husband and I got a chance to clean our whole house yesterday. Ever since we both got those allergies we were both couldn't do our house chores, we were so tired easily, now that we are okay (thank goodness) we decided to disinfect our whole house.  We washed all our rags, blankets, bed covers, pillow covers and comforters in order to prevent the coming back of allergy. You know just like in the hospital, they do hospital disinfectant after a patient confine. So, that's what we did yesterday. We feel so rejuvenated now after all. There really is a rainbow after the rain. :) What a good way to start our week. 

Hope you guys have a beautiful Monday!

Gift Ideas for Her

There is no denying that I am a hoarder of sales item. I always have a good eye on them. Although it took me more time to find great items on clearance racks such as cotton tees, dress, accessories, decorative and so many others either in the mall or online just to make sure I'll pick the right one. It felt good like I found the greatest treasures in the world after acquiring all those junks (okay, those items on clearance are "old" inventories of the stores, in other words it their junkies! heehee) to take home.

Just so you know, whenever you buy something from the clearance always make sure to find the quality ones because even if it's cost you $5 but don't have good materials it'll be wasted! $5 is a lot, huh. My latest acquisition in Papaya store was a 100% cotton tee shirt for just $3 on clearance. I so love it. In fact it looks so worn out now because I use it more often. Its very comfortable, that's why. So don't buy cheap on cheap! If you know what I mean. :)

Today while I'm searching the net I stumble upon this cool online store --> tenthousandvillages, they're selling handcrafted goods. Their fair trade purchase of handmade jewelry, home decor and gifts helps improve the lives of thousands of artisans in Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Middle East. It's unique!

These are I like:

From their best sellers and great gifts for her!

Modern Kitchen Faucets


Above photo's a kind of kitchen faucet I like. It gorgeous, chic and very modern but it can be use as contemporary also. These Moen kitchen faucets are awesome-- metal construction with various finishes identified by suffix, hyrolock quick connect system, inlet shanks will accept 3/8" ball nose connections, pullout spray with 68" braided hose and lever style handle. It operates with less than 5 lbs. of force. It has a lifetime limited warranty against leaks, drips and finish defects to the original consumer purchaser, and 5year warranty if used in commercial installations. It satisfaction guaranteed! I would definitely put it on my wish list.  

Medical Information


Since I moved here in the U.S 3 years ago, honest to say, I still have culture shock until now. There are so many things are amazes me and I can't still believe that I'm experiencing it. I never stop learning-- I love to discover and experience new things.

I like it when the doctors here gave me print out of the information for my diagnosis and treatment (even if it is only cold or sore throat) to take home. All basic information were all written for me to read and follow while I am recuperating at home. It really does help. I don't know if all doctors here does this but as far as my experienced from my doctors they never failed to gave me print out.

The reason why I said this because back in my country our doctors do not practice this. Of course they told us verbally of our diagnosis and on how to treat it with prescribed medicines but you know most of the time we forgot to do the basic treatment especially if we are outpatient. But this actually doesn't matter there because Antibiotics can buy even without doctor's prescription so this is the biggest advantage there.

Speaking of medical basic information-- the Internet is also one big factor of resources to get more information. Just google the sore throat home remedy, causes of cold, ephedra diet pills, causes of cancer, how to lose weight, etcetera many websites pop up for the answers. I also love how the information we need are just one click away. Don't know what more can I ask for. :)

i Like... Summer Tee Shirt @ SaksFifthAvenue

These are my picks from what they have displayed. No, I didn't own any of these tee shirts they are just my likes. Besides I have no molah to spend over $100 for just a single tee. But aren't they looks cool?

Free Credit Score

Using credit cards or debit cards are very popular method of payment in today's business world- either online or in person. It is also convenient not to carry cash nowadays to protect ourselves from theft. In this way it makes our life very easy. But if you don't have control from spending until your bills are filing up and can't pay any longer on time that will ruin your credit report . It is a privilege to have those cards that's why we need to be responsible of using it especially the credit cards. Having good credit reports gives us a good reputation to the   loan companies that way we can get a loan easily.

Twilight Saga: Eclipse- I Can't Wait!

I would never gets tired of Twilight Saga movies. I have been following it since Twilight, New Moon, and now Eclipse is coming soon- I just couldn't wait! I'm a sucker of Edward and Bella, love them! :)





Security System

I went to see Ms. so-and-so last a couple of days ago in her office to talk with her about for some important matters. I'm afraid to spread here the purposed of my visit because I believe of superstitious belief, and I don't wanna jinx anything that is important on me. Her office is huge! It is very secured. Outside and inside the whole building has security cameras, it's everywhere!I have to enter into two glass doors before I can reach the main entrance. There were security guards greeted me, asked for my personal I.D before they will log me into their visitors list and give me their visitor's I.D. Their security system reminds me of my previous employer back in the Philippines. I like that kind of system. It beneficial for both the employees and the visitors safeness.  Unfortunately most companies in the Philippines especially in the Southern area are not yet  into security cameras system. They still use to of security personnel. Mr. security guards are very in demand there.

Chocolate in a Post Mail Envelop Wrapper

Another reason for a fat burner pills or should I say for another guilty pleasure I acquired is this chocolate xoxox. I'm loving chocolate but not all, this one right here is exceptional because I like the ingredients combination it has for this chocolate. Love the package too! It's a mail envelop with all the stamps on it. Very clever. Inside of this  wrapper has a written poet. A romantic type of chocolate, noh?  It indeed created like a post mail with a love letter attached. How sweet. The chocolate taste sweet too but not too sweet because it has salt and it is made of 55% cocoa as seen on the label in front. This is something that you gonna get for a gift for those chocolate lovers. Sweet indeed!

A Tribute to Grandma

My late grandmother did not hospitalized until 2008 she was 86 years old then. I admire her conservativeness, being laid back, her superstitious beliefs, being vain, being herbal users and witty. There are in fact many things that I like about my great grandma. I acquired some of those personality from her being vain is one, and ohh, I love herbal too. I am conservative/liberal, grandma doesn't understand my choices or views sometimes. It also hard for me to explain further to her why because she always sticks with her gun. :)  I don't argue with her it pointless if I tried.  


Anyways, grandma used to put fresh coconut milk on my hair after shampoo when I was a little. A treatment for fleas and to make my hair shiny too. It works though. It's 100% organic that is. Ha! Whenever I gets stomach ache she just picked up some herbal leaves on her backyard put it in the casserole with water and boil for me to drinks when it warm. When I had a chickenpox she just rubbed my skin with  mashed papaya leaves during bath time to ease the itchiness also in order not to have scars. It works! She loves herbal medicines. If she's still alive now I'm pretty sure she would shock to know that there are many herbal slimming pills selling in the markets anywhere nowadays because she doesn't understand our new lifestyle now. At least she got the chance to see and live with the new crazy world. Sure, she's happy where she at now.

Movies Would Love to Watch this May

Clash of the Titans

The trailer of this movie is full of action. The graphic effects are great. I like Sam Worthington. And I wouldn't mind to watch this new version after I watched the original one. Oh dear, my husband will always stick to the original ones I'm sure he will pass this. We'll see if I could convince him. 


Iron Man 2

We will definitely going to watch this over the weekend. That's for sure!


Sex and the City 2

For some lighter notes I will watch this movie. I have seen the first one might as well follow the whole series. Just for the heck of FUN.




Robin Hood

I can't wait for this movie! I sooooo gonna watch this. You know I love medieval history movie like this one. I'm thrilled!

Ask Your Doctor

There are things sound good to be true but it actually ain't work well. Like for instance the medicines I take for cough really didn't work for me. The labels really convinced me to try it. I have been taking it for weeks now but still I'm coughing. I guess it's time to see for my doctor now.

Just like in dieting, sometimes dieting and exercise doesn't work for them because they focus on their job to earn money for their essentials. Some are just too lazy to exercise regularly and or have no discipline of their body by not eat the right food. Luckily, it's never too late to make changes that can effectively control weight and the health problems it causes. Those changes don't have to be big. For a start, try to take a diet pills that work or get more exercise, even if it's just 5-10 minutes a day.

Spring Time Flowers

Flowers are bloom in Spring time. They popped out beautifully. Their colors are bright. Their smells are fresh like a baby. They smile and looks so happy. They're just drop dead gorgeous! Specially the Cherry Blossoms, Tulips and Roses. These are the things I like in Spring the trees and flowers are so divine. It's their new beginning after they were frizz cover by a snow and the too much cold temperature. It's magical. I'm so happy to see the plants back alive.

Captured the photos below at our neighbors front yard. It really inspires me.



Stainless Steel Wares for Mom

Another super level of gifts idea for mom on her special day.
There's still time to think about of what to get for your mother, okay, for my mom on her special day. :) Mostly moms loves to cook for her family that's why cookware, kitchen electronics or any stainless steel ware (like stainless steel drums) are moms best friend.  This is what I'm sure mom would definitely wants. Like what I've said from my previous entry mom has everything (according to her whatever she has right now are everything for her already. She doesn't needs a diamond or fancy car or house to make her happy) for her fancy materials are nonsense. I respect whatever mom said. I wish I could at least level up her values in life. But hey, I'm trying, trying to hold my fantasies and be happy what I have.

Mother's Day Present

How time flies so fast it's May already it means another special holiday is coming to town. I'm talking about Mother's Day. Have you buy some gifts for your mom yet? There are many holiday sales for this special event already in the mall, and I'm still not decided what to get for mom. My excuse is being sick this past few days more than a week to be exact. Heehee But I'm okay now. Seriously, I don't know what to get for mom. She has everything but I want to give something special for her. I'm sure she would gets insulted if I will give her anti aging face face creams right? I know this is too lame. I should think more than that. lol 


Mom loves Twilight Saga. I'm not kidding. Yes, she loves to read books like scifi, vampires something like that. I should get her the New Moon dvd. I'm sure she gets thrilled!

Reminiscing 80s Music: Everybody Wants to Rule the World

Tears for Fears recorded this song Everybody Wants to Rule the World including their other famous songs such as Mad World, Shout, Head over Heels and etcetera. If you grew up in the 80s I'm sure you are familiar with them. Who wouldn't? This band were famous back then.  Famous as the other British invasion in USA. Yes they are Brits. Such a talented individuals. Why Brits rocks? There is something about them that makes Americans going crazy. Talking about song. Well, there are gazillions of Americans are talented also but in the early genra especially 60s, 70s, 80s undeniable Brits invasion ruled in the USA.



If only I have a Time Machine right now I would go back to 1980's era just to see again my childhood and teen's life. And that's includes the fashion style and the famous 80s songs in the background while looking back at the old time.The 80s fashion style and musics are the biggest impact of my life until now. Because I am still so as in so in love of 80s music either pop, ballads or rock I'm on it. It remarkable even until now the songs never fades. There are new artist today re-record some of the famous 80s songs but the original remains unbeatable.
