RA’s 50th Birthday Party And Fund Raising ( Momimhar posted on February 28th, 2016 )

50th birthday cake

RA’s 50th birthday cake.

One of my mommy friends, RA, celebrated her big 50th birthday last night.  And look at her cake.  Isn’t it pretty?  The theme of her party was gold so most of us were in something gold outfits.  I put on a peach-colored sweater with gold shimmers on it.

Yours truly.

Yours truly – mgmhar.

It was a happy evening with friends.  I was glad to see some of them whom I haven’t seen in a long time.  With the help of our common close friends, RA’s party was a success.  There were lots of American food, Filipino food, drinks, and special desserts.  After eating and socializing, the karaoke started.

There are great singers in my circle of friends.  One of them is my friend and neighbor RJ, who was a former lead singer in a band.  She and her band worked in Korea for a few years until she met her beloved husband and moved here in the US five years ago.  While the birthday celebrant was busy entertaining, me and some of the female guests joined the karaoke then dancing afterwards.

As a part of RA’s birthday celebration, she hosted a raffle drawing for a Michael Kors handbag.  This is in connection to her fund raising for her feeding program in her hometown in Samar Province in the Philippines.  She is going home for a vacation in April and plan to feed more or less 500 children in her hometown.

Here is the handbag:

And who’s the lucky winner?

AJ is winner!  Congratulations!!!

We had so much fun.  It was a successful birthday party.  And I am very certain that RA had a wonderful time, too.

Happy birthday, Ate RA!

Happy birthday, Ate RA!

 

Easy Tidbits Totchos Soup Recipe Featuring Ore-Ida Totchos #OreIdaTotchos #Contest ( Momimhar posted on January 24th, 2016 )

After three weeks of planning, I finally created a soup recipe.  Yes I am very proud about this. *wink*  Well, you know, I don’t cook a lot.  I get a lot of help from my dear husband when it comes to cooking for the family.  But I am not giving up learning because it is one of my responsibilities as a wife and mom.

With the help of the Internet, we can easily find recipe inspirations to follow.  Especially if you are like me who doesn’t like complicated recipes with so many ingredients.  Do you have a favorite recipe website?  I don’t have one yet but I am getting there.  For now, the recipe inspiration for my soup recipe was from Kraft Recipes Totchos Hub . Using Ore-Ida Tater Tots as key ingredients in my soup recipe, I say this is a very good tasting soup that can be prepared in every day meal and great to warm you up during the cold winter days.  I call it Easy Tidbits Totchos Soup.  This is the very first time I am trying the Ore-Ida Tater Tots really.  I’m glad that I was given the opportunity try it together with the other free products in the #JingleVoxBox I received from #Influenster.  And as a part of the #OreIdaTotchos movement, I am sharing with you my simple recipe.

So here it is:

EASY TIDBITS TOTCHOS SOUP

Serves:  3

Ingredients:

1 cup Ore-Ida Tater Tots

1/2 cup shredded carrots

1 clove garlic, chopped

1 stalk of green onion, chopped (for garnish, you can also use fresh parsley)

2 pieces of bacon, crumbled into tidbits

Directions:

  • In a medium-sized soup pot, heat olive oil and saute garlic until fragrant.
  • Add carrots and saute for two minutes.
  • Add water and bring to a boil.
  • Add the evaporated milk. Wait for it to boil again.  Milk boils quickly and can overflow so watch out.
  • Add the Ore-Ida Tater Tots, then salt and pepper to taste.
  • Let simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Stir and adjust the taste according to your preference. (I discovered that I like the Ore-Ida Tater Tots broken into tidbits in the soup.)
  • Remove from heat.  Serve hot. Garnish with bacon and green onions.
  • Enjoy.

The soup came out really good. It smells good as well.  I suggest to add minimal salt because the bacon is already salty.
