March 31, 2010 Pearl 0

Last Saturday, I made some carrot soup at home. It’s actually very seldom that I get involved in the kitchen, it’s just not my talent to come up with fantastic dishes for the family. But sometimes, I can also whip up a dish — with the help of a recipe, of course. This time, I searched my Del Monte Kitchenomics Cookbook, and I found the recipe for Creamy Carrot soup. It’s very easy to prepare and anybody can do it. Creamy Carrot Soup 2 tbsp margarine1 beef bouillon cube5 tbsp flour1 can evaporated milk2 medium carrots1 can Del Monte Tomato Read More

There’s even Read More

We were on our way to Batangas two weeks ago when I had the urge to get my camera and took this shot. I think it was just right timing that I captured it with the tree in the foreground. But still, with or without the tree, it is still a magnificent view of the sunrise, and our first glimpse of God’s blessings as the day unfolds before our eyes.

A Pretty Cardboard Vase

March 18, 2010 Pearl 1

This is Faye’s school project. It’s a vase made of cardboard and covered with brown paper. I even scolded her for doing it at the last minute which caused us to sleep late just to help her finish it. Actually, she had assembled it already but the bottom was not flat and it was leaning on one side. We didn’t realize that it wasn’t easy, Earvin had to disassemble it again because the sides did not fit the bottom part, and when he taped the lower parts together, the upper parts didn’t fit anymore. So, in the end, it was Read More
