Birthday Pre-School Snack

http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2013/03/12/birthday-pre-school-snack/

Our little guy, Rocco turned 5 this past Sunday… 5!!!  A WHOLE HAND!!!  I seriously can’t believe it.

At Rocco’s pre-school, the kids are allowed to bring in a special birthday snack for the class.  So, in true ‘I’m going to try to be a crafty mama‘ fashion, I immediately…

Fussy About Fruit

I know that my son gets plenty of vitamins because he takes a fantastic supplement and I “hide” vegetables and fruits in just about everything (might have to do a post about that).  But when it comes to eating fruits and vegetables in their natural state, it’s all about the “dip”.

He doesn’t like apple slices unless there is peanut butter involved.  Forget about carrots if there is no ranch dressing.  Salad?  Better have some raspberry vinaigrette.  I should be glad, I know but I…

Green on the Cheap

When I made the decision, really made the decision, to adopt a greener lifestyle, I had people say to me “I’d love to go green but I can’t afford it.”  Have you ever said that?  Thought that?  If so, I will refrain from telling you what I said in return.

The point is that if you think about it,…

Why Sleep Can Be Your Waistline's Best Friend

One of the top New Year’s Resolutions has to be along the lines of losing weight, getting fit and eating healthier.  We make these resolutions with the very best of intentions but then life gets in the way.  Our bosses need us to stay late at the office.  The kids get sick.  We stress about gathering our tax…

My Homecooked Meal For My Kids!

My first home cooked meal for my kids in 2013! Yes, finally I have managed to cook a meal for my three kids during this CNY!!  (An achievement if you know me by now.... LOL... .)

Well, each time Aaron comes back to IPOH, he will crave for this King of the Fruits... and he was so happy yesterday when he managed to buy the whole lot of 9…

BlackBall And CNY Deco In Queensbay Mall

With full and heavy stomach, we eased digestion in Queensball Mall which is just a short distance away from Sungai Dua... we walked around the mall, browsing around and buying nothing.. seriously, nothing was bought that evening.... it was a good sign, at least for my pockets... hahahaa....

Thinking back now, it is indeed a Big surprise that we went back to the hotel empty-handed... Kudos to my girl! What a good girl she is! She didn't buy anything at all.....

See... nothing…

Shari's Berries

http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2013/01/18/sharis-berries/

It’s safe to say that I love sweets.  And chocolate.  And cookies.  And well, I’m pregnant too  (as if I haven’t mentioned that recently *wink*).  Pregnant or not, I will never turn down the opportunity to eat something sweet!  I had the chance to review a product (of my choice) from…

Dear Food...Thanks For The Memories

I'm going to be honest here...I made a bangin ass chili yesterday.  All hail the crock pot, who does my best work for me.  I'm obsessed with soup, this month anyway.  Last month I was obsessed with all things pumpkin (when I started making pumpkin pancakes I realized things were getting out of control).  I'm still working on the perfect pumpkin soup as a magical culmination of the last couple of months.  I know, my life is intense.



Anyway, back to my chili.  It…

Where the heck did my food go?

WTHeck?

Ok, so I know I just heated up a plate of food in the microwave. I remember grabbing my plate and my glass of water and walking towards the office so I could eat while doing a little work on the computer. I remember taking that first bite, but damn...where did the rest of my food go?



This must be that moment of self awareness I've been hearing about. The time when…

I asked my kids... and their answer was ....

Christmas Breakfast Tradition: Monkey Bread

I love that our little family now has a few traditions throughout the year and this is one of them!  Monkey Bread.  I only make it one time a year; on Christmas morning and this year I am especially excited for it (probably bc I’m pregnant and have been craaaaving it since December 1st!)

Monkey Bread is prepared on Christmas Eve and left sitting out on the counter until morning.  Then, all you have to do when you wake is pop it in the oven, set a timer, and voila!  20 minutes…

David's Diner And Zento

Whenever she is back, she will tell me that she wants to eat this and eat that... and I try my best to oblige her cos I know that she deprives from these food whenever she is in college. She has slimmed down a lot, so much that it worries me that she has insufficient of protein, carbohydrates, vitamins...etc etc......etc... to me, she is just skin and bones... Well, I may be a bit overworried but then which mother or father doesn't worry about their kids' food intake especially when they are…

Rascal and His Girlfriend Had a Party In My Living Room

When I went to bed last night, Rascal was heading back to the North Pole to visit Santa Claus and give him a report on how the kids are doing.  When Rascal returned home early this morning, he decided to throw a party in the living room with his girlfriend.  He found a perfect chair for them to sit in and he placed it in front of the television.

 

For the rest of the story and photos of Rascal's party please visit…

Give Thanks

Happy Thanksgiving! (a few days late)

Are you exhausted? ; )  This was the first Thanksgiving I hosted and not that I didn’t know it was a lot of work but I think being pregnant with an achy back just made all of the work a *little harder!  I was so sore and sleepy on black Friday but it was so worth it!  The memories, the smell of Thanksgiving in our home all day, watching the Thanksgiving Day Parade and the comfort of being together with nowhere…

Why I'm Glad the Twinkie is Toast

To all of you nostalgic saps who are mourning the potential death of the Twinkie, I offer the following quiz:

How many Twinkies have you actually consumed in the past month? (NOTE: You should not count this week when the world decided that Twinkies were edible again.)

  1. If your answer is more than 10: How old are you, and how high is your body mass index?
  2. If your answer is between one and nine: Really? You…

Bite Into A Strawberry and Marshmallow Smores Cobbler

When children are on vacation from school, they always look and ask for ways on how they can spend their free time.

Here in our home, the best way they spend it is by…what else…eating!

So during their last semestral break, my husband and I got busy in the kitchen and we thought of different meals to keep the children engaged. :)

Here’s one…
