Snow eating challenge – pinoy-bisaya style

When my friend called me up yesterday, she told me that they had lots of snow at district 20. And so, I told her to make a halo-halo (mix-mix). It’s a Pinoy snack that has fruits, ice, and milk in it. And she did make a halo-halo with her kids but she didn’t share her video.

So, today, I made my own since we have lots of snow. I made my own halo-halo pinoy-bisaya style. My ingredients are of course snow, soy milk, banana, orange, grapes, and apple. And it’s so yummy!

Watch, enjoy, be entertained, and save with Netflix these holidays and every day

This post brought to you by Netflix. All opinions are 100% mine.

There are people who find the adventures of their lives outside their homes, like they will go from different places, shopping, mingling with friends in different scenic views, and more.  On the other hand, there are also other people also who want to just spend their quality time inside their homes cooking, doing chores, watching favorite TV shows – movies, playing with kids, and many more.

Speaking of favorite movies, there are people who will spend big just to have premium channels from their favorite cable companies.  There are many people also who are wise when it comes to their entertainment packages and they chose to have Netflix subscription.  They said that in this way they can have big savings.  And they are true.  I personally love Netflix.  I am even following them and I did Like Netflix on Facebook  so that I will know some promos and new movies.  I also do Follow @Netflix in Twitter.  And that would include that I do Follow Netflix on Pinterest.  In this way, I am one of the many who will know their whereabouts and their new stuffs.

On this Holiday

On these holidays, having Netflix is one of the best choices.  It is easy to view movies and favorite entertainment anywhere, like in the bedroom, living room, kitchen, outside the house, and even including in the bathroom.  As for me, I do love watching Netflix in my laptop whenever I am in the kitchen cooking some yummy foods for my family, especially now that they partnered with Chef Curtis Stone (a celebrity chef).

How about you?

Do you want to save on your entertainment bills also?  If you are, do check Netflix.  You will not just be saving on electricity bills, but you can watch it anywhere you may be.  Inside your home or even when you are on mobile.  Like when you are traveling to distant places, or having groceries, or waiting for some appointments, you can easily entertain yourself with Netflix.

When talking about foods and cooking with celebrity Chef Curtis Stone, I do love this recipe – Red’s Orange White Russian.  Here is the recipe for that:

Red’s Orange White Russian

The Chef said this:  “I couldn’t resist creating a recipe inspired by the character Red on the Netflix hit show “Orange is the New Black”…she is a chef, after all. This version of the classic White Russian cocktail includes orange liqueur and orange zest. Orange truly is the new black!”

Serves: 1

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 0 minutes

Make-Ahead: This cocktail is best served as soon as it is made.

 

Ingredients

 

Ice cubes

1/4 cup Kahlúa

2 tablespoons vodka

1 tablespoon Cointreau

2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream

1 navel orange

 

Method

1.       Fill a rocks glass halfway with ice cubes. Add the Kahlúa, vodka, and Cointreau and gently stir to blend.

2.       Pour the cream over so that it floats on top of the Kahlúa mixture. Using a fine grater, grate some orange zest on top. Serve immediately.

 

My Favorite Shows

Aside from the cooking shows that I love, the most important role of Netflix for my family and me is the cartoon movies in which almost the whole day and night, my kids love to watch.  My husband’s favorite shows are the series movies in which he would just be the one watching it in the room because it’s all Sci Fi movies.

What are my plans for these holidays with Netflix?

Since I am not the boss of my home, it would be my kids who would hug Netflix most of the time.  But if they will take their naps, that would be the best time for me to watch my favorite shows especially the cooking shows.  I do love Netflix for the reason that I can watch my favorite shows anywhere and anytime I want.  Best of all, Netflix brings savings to my wallet.

How about you?

Are you a Netflix subscriber too?  What are your experiences with using Netflix?  Did you have the same satisfaction like I have or even more?

The Formula For A Great Restaurant Experience

A successful restaurant does not come down to luck, chance, or working hard and extra long hours. It’s about following a formula that will guarantee success and provide your customers with a great restaurant experience. Shopfitters Brisbane knows how much you want your customers to continue eating your food, so have created the perfect formula for a great restaurant experience.

Food

Think of your food as the foundation stones of your restaurant. No matter how inviting your ambience is, if your food isn’t at its highest standard, and isn’t consistently good, you won’t get many customers. With any restaurants comes fierce competition, so if you don’t consistently deliver the same high level of quality with every single meal, you’ll be quickly replaced by a better and more experienced restaurant down the street.

Service

Many restaurant owners misunderstand the value of good, wholesome service. They believe that as long as their food is good, it doesn’t matter how curt the waiters are with their customers. This is where they fail! Good service is the essence of a fantastic restaurant experience, and even makes the food taste better! A restaurant might be clean and in a great location, but without excellent service it’s likely to fail. Train your wait staff to interact with your customers, and set a good example for them. Greet your guests and introduce yourself.

Environment

Even if your restaurant is part of a chain, it is important to make it unique and stand out against the rest. Making sure it is clean and allowing customers to see staff clean it regularly, is a great way to create a healthy environment. Remember to continuously empty the bin so it is never full, play the music is at an acceptable level, and keep the bathrooms extra clean. A clean environment is an invitation to come back.

Location

If you are a new business and scouring for places to open up your restaurant, it is very important to choose the right location that will reflect your food and the atmosphere you want to create. Obviously, it pays to have the best spot in town, but mediocre places can work if you make your restaurant stand out from all the rest. Chose a spot where you know the restaurant will become popular and profitable, and make sure it’s easy to access. Nobody wants to travel up five flights of stairs for a mediocre meal! A good restaurant becomes a great one by following these four steps to success. The food, service, environment, and the location of a restaurant is extremely important to make sure your customers continue to return time and time again!

Healthy snacks


Every day, I see to it that my kid has some healthy snacks. This is because he is a fussy eater! Even though he’s very fussy it is easy to impress him, and one of the simple foods that he loves most is popcorn. Every time I cook some popcorn, he will ask if it’s possible for me to put it in a large bowl so that he can have plenty of it while having his homeschooling break. Sometimes he eats popcorn whenever he is watching his favorite cartoon shows. He loves to have some butter on his popcorn, but since he is allergic to regular butter, I always use soy butter. I will then mix it with salt to taste. He says that popcorn is not only yummy but it is also a healthy snack compared to eating junk food.

Now, making popcorn would have been so much harder for me before, but right now, I can say that that it is so easy to pop some popcorn whenever I need to, and that is with the help of popcorn machines. I love the idea of having one at home, because it is simple to use and I can easily have some fresh healthy popcorn anytime I want to. These popcorn machines are so convenient.

Just like me, I am amazed with the machines and I am delighted to have one in my house. My family loves popcorn a lot and now that I have one of these machines, I can easily make it for them fresh anytime they want it. They love to have fresh popcorn and I do not blame them because when it’s fresh it’s the yummiest of all!

Want to have split w/o the banana

Early morning, I had a banana split in which my husband bought from DQ yesterday. And since I didn’t like banana, I just ate the toppings and other ingredients. It’s yummy and I wanted to eat more. Wish I can just drive over at DQ and will order split without a banana if it’s possible. WEEE! Anyway, here’s my photo of it!
