Story of my Thursday life: "I am a Proud Momma!"

I didn't understand Doniella when she told me Tuesday afternoon that it is very important for her to be in school early on Wednesday. It just came clear to me when one of the parent from a different class told me, "You must be proud of your little girl,she receive an award at the assembly yesterday!" And I was like,What do you mean? And she said it was a simple acknowledgement from school for kids who showed good character in their class,stuff like that. So that was what Doniella was trying to tell me,she told us she needs to be early in school because she is going to be standing in front of other kids. And I was trying to figure it out,If I only knew I could've stayed longer after dropping her off and took a bunch of pictures.I know it's prolly nothing for some of you,it's not like a medal of honor or something,but it means so much to me.It makes me feel so proud of her because she could be a Brat sometimes and for her to be acknowledged of having done such a good deed,I can't help but be proud. And also,it feels more of a reflection to us parents. It assures us that we are doing a good job raising our kids in this modern overwhelming world of Parenthood where Moms and Dads are struggling to get their kids under control. I'm glad her school is doing this because it encourages kids to show good behavior. I am so proud of my Daughter,indeed I am a proud Momma!

Tuesday Photo Story : Mr. Potato all messed/Mashed up

How can you screw up a mashed potatoes? Oh it's easy caused I did it last night.It's not a joke,it is something I consider failure. I failed, boo! We're supposed to have a mashed potato Monday last night along with a yummy meatloaf for dinner but for some reason my mashed potatoes came out like this....take a good look.

It is a cross between a rice porridge and tapioca pudding.I wish it tasted as either one but it is awful,looked bad tasted bad.They were inedible. Sorry :-(

Now,what did I do wrong this time? because last Monday my husband said I made him the best mashed potatoes,even better than his mom's (now that's a first).

Healthy Snacking : Cottage Cheese Pineapple with Cashew

Healthy Snack Ideas? It's hard because when it comes to food the sweeter it is the better,the saltier it taste the yummier it is for me. I even dip my strawberries in salt which drive my husband crazy of course.So when it comes to healthy snacking,I am very bad. When my husband introduced me to Cottage Cheese with Pineapple and Cashew,I was at first hesitant cause I am not a big fan of Cheeses of any kind. But when I tasted this recipe,I got so hooked I forgot my cravings for sweet and salty snacks.The secret is the pineapple,the sweet and tart flavor of it leaves a happy taste in you mouth. And the crunchiness of cashew adds contrast to it's taste,even if you use unsalted raw cashew which I do,it'll satisfy your cravings for salt. You can try Strawberries also, to make you appreciate it's taste more,It is more appealing to kids also. My kids love it,my husband most. We like the low fat,2% milk fat compare to non fat or regular cottage cheese because it tasted much better if you mix it with the cut up fruits. We also like to use raw unsalted cashew cause it is less processed and Dole pineapple slices in 100% pineapple juice because they are sweeter. But you can use whatever brand you like,or any of your choice of course. The good thing too about this recipe is how easy it is to make it,just mix it all together.
