Remember the two typhoons that had hit Philippine area in a matter of week. It sends a thousand household completely out of electricity for 5 days. Had no choice but to cook out what were left in the freezer.
After frying one home made meat loaf after another, there’s one left and the kids would never want to touched their fried meat loafs.
Thinking how I should “repurpose” the last one, I looked for other items that needed to be used up in the fridge before they rot. Got me these...ham slices, mushroom, potatoes, and mince garlic and onions. The kids love another variation of Cottage Pie HERE.
1. Boil the potatoes. Set aside.
2. Saute garlic, onions then stir in the meat loaf.
3. Add dash of salt and black ground pepper.
4. Placed the cooked meat loaf in a shallow round dish.
5. Mash the potatoes, add cheese and salt.
6. Evenly spread the mashed potatoes on top of the sauteed meat loaf.
7. Brush with butter.
8. Bake for 15-20 minutes until potatoes becomes golden brown.
9. Enjoy your slice. Perfect with garlic toast or over pasta, too.

When typhoon Pedring lashed out its fury Tuesday morning, we had to endure power black-outs. And, when we heard that the national road en route to the city is passable by Thursday morning, we skipped town to let the kids enjoyed the cold and “lighted” vast expanse of the city mall. It’s good to hear electronic noises again, and brightly colored lights. Days without electricity made our eyes somehow akin to cat’s eyes
And, while were at it. We try dining out because we’re tired of eating adobo, day in day out! Imagine having no fridge for four days. That means, stacking up on fresh meat is a no-no.
When dining out with kids, your guess is right, Jollibee’s the choice. Alongside chicken and spaghettis and fries, we tried this Hash Brown Burger.
What’s in the package? Let’s give it a quick taste.
YUM! Did I say I am a potato sucker? Loved anything with potatoes. Surely, this sixty-four-peso solo order (P64.00) is a winner! Loved the baked potatoes sandwiched with the juicy patty. And, the cheese slice gives it that oomph it needed.
Four more, pretty please. I have never been so excited in taking out burgers lately…I have found my mate in Jollibee At last!

When the cat is away, the mice were playing around, specially in “my” kitchen…
I made Siomai last week, and had saved the unused ground pork in the freezer for later use. And last Saturday, when we had “us girls” day out in the city, we came home greeted by surprise from the two boys (thanks Big R and little R ^_^) in the family. They prepared this “hamburgers”…complete with uh-oh, blurry photos from the lad’s camera phone…saying, “mom, I took some photos, thought, you might need them for your blog”. How sweet.
Let’s see how’s the boys’ little burgers fared…
ground pork, diced carrots and potatoes, diced onions, shredded cheese, salt and ground pepper, drops of sesame oil(optional), egg and flour.
preparing the patties…
preparing also the garnish…where’s the mayo sweeties?
filling the bun…
Photos may not be so perfect, but how precious can it be knowing the dad and the son had their moment grilling burgers…until it gets BURNT TO THE MAX!!!

Cheese are essential in my family’s diet. Kids love cheeses. I adore them especially the creamy and softer cheeses. Cheese is a very versatile cooking companion, too. One can create thousand of cheese recipes.
Too bad, hubby can not share our passion for cheeses. We must take notice that anything that comes from four-legged animals contain saturated fats. It is imperative that cheese intake should be tolerable especially for those who were maintaining a low cholesterol diet.
For the meantime, my super active kids deserved this simple and easy to cook pasta recipe. I incorporate this Danish White Cheese to the pasta dish because the kids wouldn’t want this in their sandwiches because it’s a bit salty.
I prefer to cook this pasta twist for a change to the usual spaghetti
I cooked this dish this morning after sensing that the kids were whining about the usual egg-and-hotdog breakfast menu^_^
-saute garlic and onion (and red bell pepper if you wished)in butter
-add in the chicken chunks and sweet ham
-add 2 cups of chicken broth, let simmer for a while
-add in the cream and evaporated milk
-then, this is where I add in the Danish White Cheese, it is a bit salty, thus, I omitted the salt.
-add a dash of ground pepper
-AND, IT’S GOOD TO GO AT BREAKFAST TIME!
There’s my plate with my cafe au lait!
usually, i had coffee at night or candies when i had posts to finish. but, just two nights ago, i did get hungry and when i opened up the fridge, none appeal to me, except the tacos. too bad, no ready filling was there, not even any greens to go with it. only these were available and seems easy to prepare…
