Choco Mucho (Big Bar)

>> Saturday, November 20, 2010

One of my sister-in-laws gave my son a big bar of Choco Mucho but as I have mentioned a few posts back, my son only ate a few brands of chocolates and sadly this one is not included in the elite list *grins*. So, it's mommy to the rescue *lol*, actually, it's more of a blessing in my case coz I got to eat sweets, and it has caramel, my favorite sweet treat of all time.

I am not a fan of Choco Mucho but I do eat some from time to time so it was really a delight to chomp on a big one, it's really big, I promise. The only thing I noticed was that the big bar doesn't have the chocolate filling in the center, as in it was bare. Did it walk away, did they forgot to put some, did it melt and evaporate, I actually don't know, hahaha.



I forgot to take pictures of the bar itself, I was too excited to taste it.

And Here's My Pick

*** This is a sponsored post.


Christmas is just around the corner and for housewives, like me, it is time to list down the name of stuff we want added in our kitchen, dining room or living room. We work at home, serving our family, we don't expect any 13 month pay or holiday bonus because we are not paid to work *grins* but a little courtesy from our husbands is enough to make our heart flutter and our stomach churn in excitement. In layman's term, we love gifts that we can use to make our home-making life easier aside from the personal one that you give us as Christmas presents.

And as I am waiting for this season to come for almost a year now *lol*, I already know what I want and I am prepared to do some haggling with the hubby so I can get it. As I spent most of my time lurking in the online world, I tend to search around a lot and thank heavens for that as I've found my preferred gift that way. If you're on the look out for small kitchen appliances, cookwares, baking paraphernalia, hard-to-find ingredients, I suggest you try food network, it's a one-stop online shop for housewives and cooking enthusiasts.

Curious as to what I want for myself? Hmm, shall I tell you? Well, I am not really picky so I have my eye on a really simple one, it is a set of non-stick cookware in orange, I love that color, it is lively and bright, it usually uplift my not-so-happy-mood; it is made of porcelain enamel from Rachel Ray's collection. Aren't those pots and pans lovely?

Greenwich Ham & Cheese Square Pizza

>> Friday, November 19, 2010

I am a fan of Greenwich, that I can say, my family, unfortunately, is not. And in my practical-or-not-so mind, if you are to risk buying something that may not elicit good reviews, go for the basic, the simple the better, hence, ham and cheese pizza.


I think, I am both right and wrong, right, in picking ham and cheese, wrong, in presuming that my family is that picky, hahaha.

Still one of Greenwich's best, one of the pioneers in their menu and it is still waving the Ham & Cheese flag proudly, hahaha, that sounds weird.

Go Nuts Donuts Soft Cookies

>> Wednesday, November 17, 2010

Cookies courtesy of my little brother dear, he, actually, remembered me when he went to the mall and passed by a branch of Gonuts Donuts, how sweet is that? Anyway, these cookies are suppose to be put in a tin can or a box but it seems like they run out of both, I wonder why or how *grins*, so my cookies end up in a plastic bag *lol*. It's still the same cookies, yummy and soft, but it just doesn't appeal to me visually but as it was given as gift and free, I took and ate it with much gusto, of course *lol*.

It's a combination of regular choco and double fudge cookies which cost 6php each, my bro paid 150php for 25 soft cookie pieces. It's good, if you haven't tried some yet, you better :)

Lucky Me Supreme

>> Monday, November 15, 2010

I am not suppose to eat this kind of stuff and I am suppose to be really picky and careful on what to shove down my throat, but, when midnight hunger occurs and the first thing I got sight of was Lucky Me Supreme, all thoughts was lost. Don't you ever have that feeling of wanting to have something that is forbidden, well, that's how I felt *lol*.

Anyways, after months of deprivation, all I can say is lucky me *grins*!

Julie's Lechon Bread

My mom asked me a few days ago if I want some lechon de leche, I was shocked to hear that from her as she was really forcing me to eat healthy as I am about to give birth in a month's time, I seized the chance and immediately said yes, who in their right mind would say no to that. An hour or two later, my father came with a bread shaped like a lechon (photo below) and a bunch of other bread from Julie's Bakeshop. Gawd, my mother's sense of humor is beyond me sometimes *grins*.

But, bitter feelings aside, the cute lechon bread taste good. I had fun eating it, tearing the lechon piece by piece, I started with the tail, in case you wanna know *lol*. I don't know how much it cost, just visit your nearby Julie's branch to see for yourself.

Burger Machine's Chicken Burger

>> Sunday, November 14, 2010

A new branch (aka a van-like stall) of Burger Machine opened up near our place, it has been ages since we saw one and it has been so long since we tasted their brands of burgers. As I was completely at a loss on what to get, I let my son decide and so we left the place with two orders of buy 1 take 1 double chicken burger, which equals to four pieces of double chicken patty sandwiched in a one and a half bun, I thought, I'll explain, in case, not everyone is as good as me in Math, hahaha, that is the most ironic comment I ever said in my life.



For 36php, it sure is worth your money, you even have a choice on what sauce you'd like, mayo and ketchup, bbq sauce, and the other one which I forgot *grins*. Next time, I'll try the Longganisa burger, it looks yummy.

Kablon Farms Pure Tablea

>> Saturday, November 6, 2010

My sister-in-law sent a couple of tablea, her co-teacher was nice enough to brought back a few after she attended a seminar somewhere in Mindanao. I'm more of an instant drink kind of person, it's easy and quick, but a taste of something elite once in a while is always welcome. We tried it out already and it was a big hit, two rounds of cocoa can already make a few cups of creamy chocolate drinks.

I chopped two rounds, heat a few cups of water and add the cocoa, I put in a wee pinch of salt (you can hold the salt if you want to), a spoon or two of sugar and some fresh milk, and I continuously stir to make it thick and creamy. My husband and son loved it, I think it's nice to pair up with a bibingka, I'll try that next time :)


Note: Pardon the blurry pic, I don't have a better shot, so I was forced to use this one :(

Pistachio Spread

>> Friday, November 5, 2010

One of the goodies from my father-in-law, it's just like a peanut butter spread but instead of peanuts, it's pistachio. I think it comes in two varieties, one is the regular smooth pistachio spread and the other is like that of the photo below where chunks of pistachio is available, to add a little crunch to your ordinary sandwich *grins*. I am a fan of pistachio nuts so imagine my glee when I learned that a pistachio spread exist, sadly though, I am not a fan of the spread, I think, I'll stick to the nuts per se.

I am not sure of the brand but it's a product of KSA.

Tortitas Black

>> Thursday, November 4, 2010

Though, I try to be super strict on my diet, some cravings just couldn't be stop :) I learnt of Tortitas Black through my younger brother, if I remember correctly, he went home one night with a plastic bag of groceries from Rustan's and it was one of the goodies, good for me as I was staying at my parent's house at that time, bad for him as his glutton of a sister was home when he bought those, hahaha. And, I never stop after that.

It's like your usual Oreo but instead of vanilla cream filling in between two chocolate cookie sandwich, it's just a piece with the filling in its center. It is a product of Arcor which is an Argentine confectionery company that exports their products to 122 countries in the world, including the Philippines, I think, samba chocolate bonbons is also a product of theirs.

Try it, it's really good.

Hershey's Milk Chocolate Bars

>> Wednesday, November 3, 2010

It's kinda late but I hope everyone had a good time celebrating Halloween and indulging in some no-school, no-work breaks, I know, I did *grins*. I was out of the circulation for a few weeks, yet again, pregnancy is really a bugger, hahaha.

Anyway, my son wasn't able to do some trick or treating with his cousins nor was he able to attend a fun day to celebrate Halloween as his mother was puking her intestines and all other internal organs out without a halt, by the way that's me, so no one will accompany him. His aunts took pity and sent packs of Hershey's (the only brand, aside from M&M's, that he eats) for him to indulge in. Thanks sistars, you're the best!
