Savoury Beef and Mushroom Pasta

It’s another long weekend kaya hapi-hapi mga bagets ko. Tatlong araw kaming kukuyakoy dito sa bahay kaya dapat lang mag-celebrate kahit sa pinaka-simpleng paraan.

There’s no better way for us to have a good time than have a plateful of penne pasta in beef and mushroom sauce. Peborit ng mga bagets ko kahit anong luto ng pasta basta may sauce.

Andito ang pic ng aso ko dahil namataan ko ang napakasimpleng recipe na ‘to ng Tilapia  sa www.yummy.ph habang nagpapakamot ng tiyan si Kremo sa isang kamay ko.

Tiempo naman na may deboned tilapia pa ako sa freezer kaya sinubukan ko. Pinaghihiwa ko na lang sya into strips, yun katamtaman lang ang hiwa kasi baka naman madurog pag sobrang nipis ng strips.

Chocolate Revel Bars

Here’s a recipe, a wonderful alternative to the usual brownies. Para maiba naman at baka nagsasawa na kayo sa brownies na lang palagi altho dito sa bahay namin, mga bagets ko eh parang binudburan lagi ng Ajinomoto ang mga bibig nila. Lafang kung sa lafang kahit ano pa yan basta masarap lang ang pagkaluto, hindi nila palalagpasin. 

Para sa mga kapwa ko nanay, kahit alam ko karamihan sa inyo ay bising-bisi MAKING A LIVING, hehehe! Baka gusto nyo subukan i-bake ang Chocolate Revel Bars. Ako kasi, since unemployed ako, nagpapakabisi na rin ako…I’m busy adding quality days to my life sa pamamagitan sa pagtupad ng mga hilig ko at baka bukas eh kunin na ako ni Lord. Nyahaha!

Masarap sya, mga ineng. Eto kanina ang almusal ko…with matching black coffee as usual habang nagbabasa ng mga news online (pa-intellectual bagah!)
