♥Turkey Sandwich♥

Quarantine food for dinner. :-)  Turkey sandwich plus chicken soup, and a side of pickles.
Simple and easy! One of my kids favorite easy meals.

We always stored a bunch of different kinds of soups and other basic foods
for quick grab. Luckily my kids are not too picky especially if their daddy is in-charge of making a quick meal.

Here's what you need to make the Turkey sandwich:

4 slices butter bread
2 tablespoons soften butter
2 teaspoons mayonnaise
2 teaspoon ranch dressing
4 slices Swiss cheese
8 slices deli turkey

Preheat a large skillet over medium heat.
Lightly coat one side of each slice of bread with butter; lay out the slices, oiled side down, on a plate.
Spread  mayonnaise and ranch dressing mixture on each slice.
Top two of the slices of bread with a slice of Swiss cheese.
Arrange the turkey on the other two slices of bread.
Bring the two halves together.
Brown the sandwiches in the preheated skillet until the bread is golden brown on both sides and the cheese has melted.

♥Putong Balanghoy♥

Putong Balanghoy is one of the Bisaya's morning or afternoon snacks.
It's good to go with tea, coffee, or even soda. My late mother used to make the Putong Balanghoy and sell it to our village.

It was only a few days ago when I thought about making putong balanghoy, and on my first attempt it turned out perfectly! I was tickled that my daughter loved it, and she even ate the leftovers the next day for breakfast. 😀

This recipe is easy to make; especially since we can buy the grated cassava and grated coconut ready from the Asian store.

Here's how you make it:


2 cups grated cassava
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 cup shredded young coconut (optional)


- Using a cheesecloth, squeeze the grated cassava to dispel juices until dry.

- In a bowl, sift through the cassava using hands to break clumps and remove any hard fibers.

- Add brown sugar and shredded young coconut, if using. Stir together until well combined.

- Sprinkle brown sugar in the tin molds.

- Put cassava mixture into the tin molds.

- Arrange the molds in a single layer on the steamer.

- Steam the puto for about 20 minutes.

- Remove from the heat and allow to slightly cool down.

- Invert the puto to release from the molds. Serve warm!

- Enjoy snacking!

Note: You can put toppings like grated coconut or sugar if desired. I just like the old recipe of puto and the simple look of it. Yum yum!!

I used clean empty  condensed milk can and make holes in the bottom as tin molds.

Happy birthday, to the most amazing mother in the world♥

I made this birthday card for my mother who celebrated her 77th birthday last week. It was sad that I didn't get a chance to greet on her birthday due to the bad weather and bad telephone connection.
 She's the best mother I could have asked for. I miss her!
I can't wait for her to come visit us again so she can spend time with her grand children. Happy birthday, Nanay! We love you so much.........

Spooky Hallow♥

My kids had a great time attending the Spooky Hallow trick or treat at Camp Humphreys, last Friday. It was an event Camp Humphrey’s community organizes every year for the children and family. It was fun and exciting to wear different costumes!

My 7 year old boy wore a pirate costume and Marianne, my 9 year old girl was dressed up as a witch. It was a clear warm night with a crescent shaped moon in the sky, much different from last year as I remember.
We met some friends and we sat and talked on the ground while watching the Charlie Brown “The Great Pumpkin” on a outdoor movie screen. The kids we’re running around having fun and getting treats from the different booths. The booths were run by soldiers.
Some soldiers dressed up as zombies and did the Michael Jackson,“Thriller” dance. I thought that was awesome! They also did the Gangnam Style dance with the children. It was a fun night for everybody! ♥Happy Halloween everyone♥

Our Life Here In Korea:

 I don’t remember the last time I posted my blog! Hmmm Busy - - busy - - busy!!!! Life is beautiful as I always believe. I must say we’re already adjusted our life here in Korea. I am glad we survived - - it’s already one year since we moved in. It seems like yesterday!  
We still have 2 years more to go here in Korea before we’ll decide to go back to the US or go where hubby’s work will be. Yea, we live all over the place!!!

 Korea is an interesting country and it is a good experience to live here.

My daughter’s First Communion.

Today is my daughter’s first holy communion. She is very excited. We got up early getting my children ready for church. This time our church service is earlier than usual for we also celebrate the Easter Sunday.

I know my daughter is getting big, I can’t help looking at her.   She looks so beautiful wearing her communion dress and we are very proud. Good luck sweetheart, for your first communion.

Ipad 2 Apps.

 I thought it is hard to play around with the Ipad2, but it isn't. I’m enjoying it. My kids  love it also. It is very useful, especially when doing their homework.
It is very light and handy. I bring it to bed and surf online, my hubby complains because it keeps him up. Too bad, "you bought it, live with it." Lol. I would say he started to enjoy playing with it and even downloaded a bunch of applications for the kids, educational apps. It’s a fun toy alright.
