>Chicken Ala King Recipe

>Usually, bell pepper and pimientos are used for Chicken ala king but my husband and myself do not like bell peppers. Also, there are some people who use cream instead of evaporated milk. I use either of the two-whatever’s available.  So here’s my version:  Ingredients:  Chicken fillet (breast or thigh)  mushroom frozen mixed veggies (carrot, […]

>Holiday Update: June 30 and July 2

>Rainbow Vacuum, anyone?

> My good friend, Anne, referred me to an agent selling Rainbow Vacuum.  In all honesty, I was wary of the demo because based on experience they tend to be pushy and worse, pesky. The demo ladies came today and I was quite impressed with the machine. It basically cleans the air and it can be […]

>How to go to Zoobic from NLEX via car

>Enter North Luzon Express Way and pass through Dau exit going to SCTEX (Subic, Clark, Tarlac Express)You can actually pass through San Fernando exit but it would take you longer because of traffic. SCTEX seem to be a long cut but travel time is shorter because few vehicles pass through it. I can’t count how […]

>Yesterday we went to Subic for Peaches’ Zoobic Safari experience. It’s perfect timing since she loves animals and she knows them by heart but only through pictures and tv. My initial thought was that she’ll be scared since there will be close encounters with some of the tamed animals but boy, was I wrong.I searched […]
