The dark days brought about by the power cut off at last week’s two typhoon. I had me thinking of ways how to cut holiday expenses come December. December was the most busiest month for our family. Two birthdays plus the holiday eves. As a mom, I’d like to make everyday a feast for my family. But, food prices constraints me from cooking elaborate dishes. Besides, I wonder how can most homemakers eke out on our budgeted expenses when prices of most basic necessities skyrocketed each month. Should we apply for a Personal Loans that guarantee us instant cash when the need arises?
Hubby and me were talking of getting an Unsecured Personal Loan. Yes. But, not spending on a grand Christmas holidays. But, we were studying the possibility of financing and extending our backyard hog raising. It always helped us get through our financial crisis many times. As, they always say, saving on a piggy bank saved one on a rainy day. Literally.
Applying for a Payday Loans Online is as easy as winning on an E-Bay bid. It is fast. It is secure. It’s a worry-free transaction. The hassle of going to financial centers and signing off on dozens pages were ruled out. Come December, or perhaps, November, we’ll see.
What’s an activity to do when life gets back to “primitive living”? Two typhoons that lashed out IN A WEEK hitting our province, as well, sends us virtually living in the olden times. No electricity means no to what this tech world offers. No tv, not even a radio, no to computers. Neither were there cellphones, because even small gadgets were dead on batteries by the the third day electric supply hasn’t been restored. Candles were our only company at night. And, loud teasing voices from the kids.
We’re basically stuck to doing nothing, except, listen to each other’s “fool tales” and more humor, and of course, eating. What else is there to do, but EAT. Even when refrigerator’s out for days, the family could still find stuff and make each meal time, FAMILY TIME.
Take these red onions which was partly wet because of the winds sending rains towards our storage area. We decided to make onions rings….
1. Peel and slice the onions half inch thick. Dry in paper towel.
2. Dredge in flour (or I use chicken breading).
3. Deep fry for two minutes.
That easy unless one prefers a tempura-like batter which I skipped doing. Maybe when the weather’s not too stormy…
Simple as it may, the hubs enjoyed this onion recipe along side his beer
While I did have my plate with a cup of fried rice with omelette on top and those onion rings. Breakfast. Er, no that’s dinner time
Wished for the gloomy weather to go. But, the weather bureau announces yet another typhoon a-brewing in the south. Geez!
