All’s finished as per my planned scheduled after a busy week. House chores were much easier and faster when kids would helped in the work. Yipee!
House is clean and fresh. Laundry’s finished. Did my marketing earlier in the morning. But didn’t cooked anything special for the kids. They have been screaming for “chickenjoy” since yesterday. We promised to tote them along tomorrow for our usual grocery shopping in the city. They can’t wait.
So, I made this simple lunch earlier for the kids. In a way, thanking them for their help. (once in a blue moon^_^)
Of course, granting their fried chicken (wings) meal...
Complete with potato cream gravy…
So, there. The kids’ fast food favorites. Laden with fats, as the chicken and potatoes were fried. But, knowing the products used and IT IS HOME COOKED, it’s a healthier option.
With ripe mangoes as desserts? It’s my kids favorite.
*Dining out means shelling out extra money. Homemakers (mommies) should think about ways to curb extra or unneeded expenses.
*When going out with my family, we always make sure we go out after lunch, thus, we only need to have a snack at the city mall. Or, maybe, going out late in the afternoon. Missing out on snack time, instead, a dinner before going home.
*Harder times, plus the fact that we should consider that most food kiosks or restos does not offer healthy foods these days. Instead, most are laden with fattening ingredients. Great to lure cravings but not so good for the kids.
