About Me According To My Child ( Momimhar posted on October 11th, 2018 )

As I was cleaning up and organizing some of K’s school work from  last year, I took a moment reading one of her journals-the Work on Writing Journal-and I found this in one of the pages.

About My Mom

  1.  likes buffets
  2. has lots of rings
  3. lives (lived) in the Phillaphenes (Philippines)
  4. loves shrimp
  5. loves coffee
  6. loves me.

Isn’t this sweet?  I was touched reading this.  My darling daughter knows me well.

I would recommend looking through your children’s school journals.  You might find cute, sweet, interesting, or funny writings and expressions there.

Chayote Squash and Pork Stir-Fry At Potluck 1980s Themed Birthday Party ( Momimhar posted on January 18th, 2017 )

1980s theme birthday party.

Filipino-American moms got together for a 1980s themed birthday party for our dear friend R four days ago. Most of us grew up in the 80s and 90s and when someone suggested the 80s theme birthday party, we all went nuts. LOL.

Anyway, it was a potluck party.  Everyone brought special dishes for all to enjoy.  Made some Chayote Cabbage with Pork Stir-Fry.

Pork frying with onion garlic.

Chayote Squash and Pork Stir-Fry

I don’t cook that often at home. But when I do, I stay in my kitchen until the food is cooked and the place is cleaned.

Ingredients:

1 lb. pork (for stir fry)

3 cloves garlic, crushed

1 small onion, chopped

1 tbsp. olive oil

2-3 pcs. chayote squash, peeled and cut into cubes (bite size)

1 beef bouillon cube

1 cup water

salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. In medium heat, saute garlic and onion until brown and soft.
  2. Add pork.  Stir fry for about 5-8 minutes until pork is brown.
  3. Sprinkle a dash of salt and a dash of black pepper.
  4. Simmer for 5 minutes while cooking in it’s own sauce.  Stirring while simmering.
  5. Add chayote squash, water, and the beef bouillon. Stir to blend and let simmer for 5-10 minutes or until the vegetables and meat are tender. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Serve hot with rice.

Pretty birthday cake.

The little ones playing the Cup Game. They had so much fun!

Everyone had a great time at the party, I think.  Especially when we started the disco and karaoke in the evening.
