The Dunkin Donuts Stall

It is only sometimes that we are going to the mall. Last week, after the Kumon of Faith we went to the mall to get the money of Mariel from her Mother in MLhullier. I just have some that time but when we passed by at Dunkin Donut, Faith suddenly grabbed my attention with her eyes getting wide. She said “Mama, look, I am hungry.” while touching her tummy at the same time. I laughed at her reaction upon seeing the stall, it is just so funny. So even though I only have enough for our grocery shopping, I hold her hand and together we went to Dunkin Donuts stall to buy her favorite donut, we just bought one Donut, and that’s only for her.

I know that we all undergo hardships in life and I guess for us this is one of them. What I am praying for now is that we can survive. And the kids can go to school without any hassle. Only one Donut was I able to afford, but the smile of Faith is very priceless. I just explained to Mj that we can’t buy her anything; we will just wait for us to come home.

Krispy Kreme For Me And You

We are on a tight budget, I mean really tight and I am serious this time so even there are times I wanted to bring presents to the kids when I get home I just can’t because our financial status is really in pretty bad shape. When we went grocery shopping with my eldest last week, thank GOD because we still had some money left I decided to bring some snacks to the kids. I asked Mj what would she like to bring at home and she exclaimed doughnuts. Yeah, it has been a while since we haven’t got a taste of Krispy Kreme Doughnut, they have new this summer, it was a colorful doughnut for colorful summer but of course we didn’t get all the variety of colors but variety of doughnuts.

On the other hand, when we arrived home the kids gather around the table immediately so my niece wasn’t able to take a picture the doughnuts itself but the box instead. Nevertheless, the kids enjoyed munching the doughnuts because it was all finished.

Bonding With Banana Cue

Mj and I went to her school for their recognition day, after the program we went to Red Cross office so I can enroll her for Junior Life Guard but we found out that she still have to undergo swimming lesson for 5 days and they will set up an interview for her if she could pass the Junior Life Guard. I called my friend who’s son wanted to be a Junior Life Guard too, we agreed that we will enroll together so Mj and her son will have the same schedule.

Mj and I went out in the Red Cross office brought some forms for the kids, we walked on the road but we were able to see some Banana Cue’s we stopped in the store for a while to get some snacks. I am happy that Mj is okay with street foods, in fact we enjoyed ourselves having this little bond together. We took a Jeepney to Ilustre to supposedly buy some DVD’s, but we were able to pass by in Greenwich and I thought to bring some snacks at home. Faith was at home together with her cousins, and I know for sure they are expecting some presents.

Side Dishes

I am always the one who cook our breakfast especially on weekdays. When my other niece live with us because her parents could not support her daily allowance at school, she was the one who cook for breakfast but she cook so dry, I mean sometimes it is overcooked. So I asked her to wake me up every time she woke up in the morning as she is always the one who woke up ahead of us.

I bought some bacon a week ago, I supposed to mix this one with the egg but I only bought two packs. So what I did, I just fried the two packs but after I fried it. I noticed that it is so dry; I bought some side dishes also a week ago so I fried it next to the bacon. After I seasoned the side dishes I put it on top of the bacon and here’s what I came out:

The image was so tempting that my sister can’t help to have some just at after she was doing the Zumba. Do you also buy some vegetable side dishes? I usually bought this one to prepare in the morning, so even we have dried meat or just fried foods, we could still be healthy because we have the side dishes.
