Pork Tapa.

It has been a battle to feed my children, specifically my four years old and after a lot of hard work in the kitchen I finally made them eat the recipe that I just learned. I was flabbergasted and proud that they manage to eat it for lunch, supper and the left overs for the next day. It is a lucky dish, I should get some for a charm and play the lottery and I might win..hahaha! As I mention earlier my kids are very picky and I get frustrated most of the time. With this new dish I can make them eat. 2 lbs. pork tenderloin, or beef cut into qaurter inch slices
1 Tablespoon finely minced garlic
2 Tablespoon sugar
6 Tablespoon soy sauce
1 Tablespoon salt peter - optional
2 Tablespoon olive oil
6 Tablespoon white venigar
1 Tablespoon salt
- Combine all the ingredients and marinate overnight or for several days in the fridge.
- Drain pork and fry in oil until very well done
- Drain in the piece of paper towel. Put over rice and enjoy.

Summer Safety for Working Parents.

I appreciate the guest post, Jenny Caldwell

Summer is most kids' favorite time of year. No school, sleeping in late and tons of things to do make this an all time favorite for kids and parents alike. The downfall is that parents cannot take the summer off of work to be home with their kids. If you are lucky you have a family member or good friend who will be watching your kids during your work hours. They can keep the summer fun for the kids with lots of activities and the security of being around someone they know.

Most teenagers may be trusted to be home alone during the day while you are at work, provided there are rules to be followed that keep them safe at home. An alarm system is one thing no home should be without. Parents will feel much more secure having babysitters or teenagers in the house knowing the alarm will be triggered should an intruder break in. Kids of all ages, as well as babysitters and family members should know how to set the security system from the inside of the home, should an emergency arise. With a little luck and planning your kids can have a great summer while you continue to work and have the evenings and weekends to enjoy your summer with the kids.

Whistle.

It surprises me that my children recognize my whistle. One day they were outside a couple houses away playing with friends. I whistle, as to get their attention, like coming home instead of yelling. To my surprise they turned back and race to come to our house. My little girl was asking if that was me calling them. It means they know my whistle- - -this reminds me of my childhood days.

My mother used to whistle to us siblings and it echoed down the whole street. Even friends recognize my mother’s signal and we hurried to come home. It’s like going back down memory lane. I remember my old folks back home say that, you can sometimes live the life we have when we are small and, add to the life of our own children which is true in some ways.

Did you know this? I didn't.

Don't even try and act like you all ready knew this either. And if you did, why didn't you tell me??

I had to go into the kitchen and check this out for myself. Whoever looks at the end of your aluminum foil box? You know when you try to pull some foil out and the roll comes out of the box. Then you have to put the roll back in the box and start over. The roll always comes out at the wrong time.Well, I would like to share this with you. Yesterday I went to throw out an empty Reynolds foil box and for some reason I turned it and looked at the end of the box. And written on the end it said, Press here to lock end. Right there on the end of the box is a tab to lock the roll in place. How long has this little locking tab been there? I then looked at a generic brand of alumi num foil and it had one, too. I then looked at a box of Saran wrap and it had one too! I can't count the number of times the Saran wrap roll has jumped out when I was trying to cover something up.I'm sharing this with my friends. I hope I'm not the only person that didn't know about this.

Home Security.

It was during my hubby's first deployment when I came up with the idea of getting a security system in our home. It made me feel safe and secure knowing that we have technology that will provide protection for our home and family.

It is also a smart idea to install an additional security video camera that gives more protection for our home and family. Very convenient, in that you can see who is coming to your door before you decide to open it. It also gives you a secure feeling, especially when your kids are outside. You can monitor and see what they are doing and who they are playing with.

Since I've been married and had kids I must to admit that security systems is very important. This is the only way you can give the whole family peace of mind.

Make sure you get good security equipment that you can depend on with a backup battery and equipment guide. It provides comprehensive information and tips on what you should do. We all know that it is very important to learn basic safety to prevent problems in a long run.

Summer Driving.

Summer is the time for outside fun, picnics and camping's. One preparation that needs to be done is to make sure that your vehicle is in good condition. Wherever we head during these hot summer days, it is important to drop the vehicle first to Dallas Auto Repair. Just in case there's something that needs to be done. You'll never know when problems arise when you are on the road.

Safety is the first thing in mind. We can only assure this by taking your vehicle to a brake job. It doesn't matter what vehicle you are driving; be it a Chevrolet Silverado or any kind. It is still very important to get it inspected before going on any trip, especially a long one.
I remember when I first started to drive our 5 year old car. I heard a lot of noises in it and I didn't know where they came from. One day I talked to my hubby and told him about it because I'm scared driving with all the noise here and there. Then, we decided to take our vehicle for inspection.
