Popcorn shrimp

Since I  bought this popcorn shrimp on sale at our grocery store I already watch it everytime I go shopping. The other day they sale almost all of their seafood item and there I was grabbing two of this popcorn shrimp and so the mussels. Here is what I come out with my popcorn shrimp..lettuce, tomatoes and balsamic venaigrette.

Popcorn and Ice Cream

Last weekend me and my three girlriends went to Mackinaw City, Michigan. They are very known for their fudge and other sweet stuff. We were in this sweet shop when I saw different colors of pop corn and of course ice cream we dig in immediately almost forgot to take photos ^_^

My Biko or Sweet Sticky Rice

Finally I was able to finished my biko and here it is. First naglalatik pa siya. With this I put two lite coconut milk and I think two cups of brown sugar (tinatantiya ko lang yong measurement). And then I let it settle down till talagang latik na latik siya. I cooked 3 cups of glutenous rice.

After, the biko was done hubby and I tasted it immediately and I found out it is very very sweet. But hubby told me it is perfect!! What a husband hehe. But this morning I transfered the biko from the kalan to the pyrex I tasted it again and it was not too sweet anymore good for the morning coffee.I remember in my hometown that in valentines day a woman should cooked something that is sticky like biko, suman or anything that stick together because the old folks said the marriage will last longer hehe. Just like when we celebrate our birthday we should have a pancit or sotanghon or behon (chinese noodles) and never cut it the celebrant will live longer. Well it is only a "kasabihan" our relationship with our husband doesn't base on anything sticky or long hahaha but it is how we communicate, respect, appreciate and love each other. Note: This is a repost from my other food blog that goes hay wire.

This was taken at Huckleberry Village. This village was preserved by the county and all the buildings in this village were owned from anyone. While roaming around the place we saw this mail carrier a woman who is walking with a donkey. I asked hubby if this is what happened before and he said most likely. I think her dress can be considered Retro?

Banana/Strawberry Shake

This morning I prepare our breakfast. When I was done doing my  thing in the kitchen I called hubby and he was amazed how little the food was on the table hahahahaha, I told him this is only around 300 calories maybe and if we want to lose weight naturally we have to do this, lol! But then I told him do not worry  I am going to cook lunch too with just less than another 300 calories hehehe.  Here is my first breakfast that I think it is healthy.

                                                                     The ingredients

                                                                 The Breakfast

These are the last batch of peaches harvested from our peach trees. Few years ago I planted three of peach trees. Fortunately they all are sweet and big that I decided to eat it fresh than make it into jam or jellies. It is very fulfilling to eat the fruit of our labor.
