Cooking with Liz: Corn, Bacon and Mushroom Chowder

corn bacon and mushroom chowder

Eversince I started creating my weekly menu plans, Z’s nanny had an easier time cooking our meals during the week. She no longer has to decide on her own or wait for me to tell her what to cook. Menu planning has definitely made our lives easier. No kidding on that, especially for a working mom like me.

However, on weekends, I take over the reigns in the kitchen. Weekends are the times when I am able to cook something that is not usually included in our plans. I get to experiment on different recipes or even come up with my own.

Product Review: Kids Plus+ by Tupperware Brands

Tupperware Brands Kids Plus+

Z used these products last December and lasted until January for the bath and shampoo. The powder lasted until March this year and he still has a little left of the lotion and the cologne.

Just like the Baby Care Plus+, the scent of the Kids Plus+ is very light and really pleasant. For the Baby Care Plus+, it has a powdery scent. For the Kids Plus+, it has a light fruity scent. It’s actually perfect for this summer.

Here’s what I like about this line:

Break Free: 8 Principles To Get From Employee to Employer

I highly recommend this book to anyone who’s thinking about getting out of the rat race and starting a business but doesn’t know where to begin. But more than that, I highly recommend this book to students who are starting to plan out their future. It is best that they learn this earlier on instead of making the same mistakes that we all go through before realizing that we’ve wasted so much time in figuring out our way to financial freedom.

Swimming as Z’s Physical Therapy

physical therapy - swimming

Swimming is something that you really can’t unlearn once you learn how to do it. Last year, I wrote about Z’s swimming activities (you can read them here). But his swimming activities was not as consistent as it should have been because I was still dependent on what he does during his physical therapy sessions. However, even when we seldom go swimming, the little boy has been improving a lot. And I say, A LOT!

12 Years Ago…

That was 12 years ago. I was a wide-eyed little girl, trying to make it big in the big metro. I got out of my comfort bubble and tried something that was unfamiliar to me.

12 years later and I am still here. I have overcome a lot, tried so many things, grew a little bit older. And while life in the big metro is hard, I can say that I am glad to have made that decision to leave my comfort zone and try to make a life for myself. I am glad and thankful that my parents supported my decision all those years ago.

Cooking with Liz: Homemade Embutido

Embutido is a Filipino-style meatloaf which is usually served during feasts. It’s a great dish that kids really love. What I really like about this is that you can make it in advance and freeze it for later consumption. It’s actually an easy dish to make, I wonder why I have never tried to make it before.
