One of my friends had a baby shower party two weeks ago. We’re excited for her upcoming baby boy who’s due next month.

Chayote Squash and Pork Stir-Fry At Potluck 1980s Themed Birthday Party ( Momimhar posted on January 18th, 2017 )
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.
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.
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
- In medium heat, saute garlic and onion until brown and soft.
- Add pork. Stir fry for about 5-8 minutes until pork is brown.
- Sprinkle a dash of salt and a dash of black pepper.
- Simmer for 5 minutes while cooking in it’s own sauce. Stirring while simmering.
- 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.
- Serve hot with rice.
Everyone had a great time at the party, I think. Especially when we started the disco and karaoke in the evening.
We had a blast celebrating New Year’s at our humble home. Two of my dear husband’s co-employees and their families came over to celebrate with us. They bought fireworks and we had fun shooting fireworks in a cold New Year’s Eve. The kids had fun dancing with Just Dance on Wii U. We’re supposed to do Just Sing Karaoke too, but for some reason the CD didn’t play.
It was a great New Year’s celebration. We missed a few family and friends but they were sick and my brother-in-law and his wife already had a commitment ahead of time.
Happy New Year to you! Wishing you all the best of 2017.
Darling daughter’s teacher announced last week that there will be an awarding tomorrow. This is for the nine weeks school period. K is getting recognized, and she will be given an award tomorrow. She said she doesn’t know what the award is for so I guess I’ll have to find out tomorrow morning. 😊
It was a beautiful day. The temperature was so perfect that we were able to stay the whole time. So here’s the one of the much awaited event of the year in Wylie – the National Night Out (NNO) 2016. Since we discovered this special event two years ago, my darling and I together with my cousins join the occasion. This is also an event of appreciation to the community service workers who help us keep our community safe in peace and order. Also, this is an opportunity to meet the your neighbors.
So at the NNO there were exhibits of firetrucks and air medics, distribution of safety guidelines courtesy of the city police department, K-9 training show, barrel ride, bounce houses, obstacle course, free food and games, and giveaways of complimentary items from sponsors and vendors. And, of course, fireworks.
We had so much fun. This is an annual celebration every first Tuesday of October.
