My son wants to have a turkey, bacon sandwich which lettuce and toasted bread. The little girl only wants a simple bologna with strawberries. I want to have a turkey sandwich with mayonnaise. I am still full from my breakfast.

It is perfect that I just bought a Sargento Ultra thin cheese. It makes our lunch more special. The little girl is allergic to cheese. She cannot have it. The husband arrived few minutes after we finish our lunch.

He had the turkey, bacon. tomato and lettuce. I also add the Sargento Ultra Thin cheese with his sandwich. He was mad because I put cheese on his sandwich. When he tried it, he said the sandwich is very good. He was happy after his first bite.

Thank you Ozeri for this frying pan

I am very excited to try this 8″ frying pan that I received from Ozeri. I fried two pieces of bacon. I cut in two pieces. The pan is not big enough for the size of the bacon. I just divide it instead. The bacon smells so good. It makes me hungrier more. I love to eat eggs especially the brown eggs that our chickens give us. I love to make omelet. I add slice tomatoes and onions with my egg and a dash of salt and pepper.

Thank you Ozeri for this frying pan

Why do I like my new frying pan from Ozeri? Well, first it is made of ceramic. It has the thick deepness from inside which prevents from the oil splashing to the stove. You do not need more oil to fry. I also love my new pan because it looks durable than my old frying pan that I used. I also love that it is a bit heavier than my old pan. I love the middle feature of the pan as well. it does not stick which is easy for the bacon and the omelet to flip.

My own version of Pork Adobo

I thaw out a big chunk of pork belly. I was planning to cook it in a crock pot. The husband asks for my help and it ended a long time. I remember I need to cook the pork belly in the crock pot. I do not have enough time to cook it.

My own version of Pork Adobo

I check out my favorite Filipino cooking website called PANLASANG PINOY. I check out the pork recipe. I found this pork adobo recipe.You can also check out the YouTube videos. My family loves to eat adobo. It does not matter if it is a pork or chicken. This is one Filipino dish that is a big hit with my family.

These are the ingredients that you will need.
2 lbs pork belly
2 tbsp garlic, minced or crushed
5 pieces dried bay leaves
4 tbsp vinegar
1/2 cup soy sauce
1 tbsp whole pepper corn
1 cup water
salt to taste

Combine the pork belly, soy sauce, and garlic then marinade for at least 1 hour
Heat the pot and put-in the marinated pork belly then cook for a few minutes
Add water, whole pepper corn, and dried bay leaves then bring to a boil. Simmer for 40 minutes to 1 hour
Put-in the vinegar and simmer for 12 to 15 minutes
Add salt to taste
Serve hot. Share and enjoy!

I do not have time to follow all the instructions. I always use meat tenderizer with any meat. It makes the meat easy to cook. I pour the soy sauce and mix it. I pour the oil to the pan. I add garlic until it is sauté. I also add onion and sauté it. I always use garlic and onion if I fry any meat. I add the meat and fry it until there is no pink in the meat. I add the remaining ingredients.

I cook white rice. I also steam vegetables and add salad. My Filipino American family enjoys the pork adobo.
