Traditional Sunday Roast with my In-Laws

Hubby and I had spent our whole Sunday afternoon at my in-laws place. It's an English tradition to prepare a nice meal for the family - normally Sundays' gathering together enjoying any roast meat (beef, pork or chicken) with gravy, apple sauce or English mustard with potatoes, parsnips, Yorkshire pudding, and green peas. Mum cooked it for us, it was only the 4 of us!

We don't normally visit them on Sunday, our last Sunday visit was 5 weeks ago if I am not mistaken. We learned in the end that Mum doesn't prepare any special meal if it's only her and Dad, and that's probably the reason why Dad invited us yesterday, as he missed roast pork and desserts too. LOL, poor Dad....

Term Life Insurance To Protect Your Family

Life has never been easier, we get up every morning (or night) and head off to work to build our legacy or provide for our family. As adults, we take responsibility in taking care of our family, possessions and even our own decisions in life. Therefore, in connection with this,we tend to invest our money wisely, always pay bills on time to avoid any extra charges, etc... and we may have also tried to put money away for our children's future education, or any major decisions in life like getting married and buying a new house or farm for retirement.

After all, nothing is more important to you than your family, and it's what makes all of the hard work you do worth it. But what if in an instance all of your hard work was wiped away? What if your death meant the end to your family's security, comfort, and future? Is there something you could do to safeguard their future? Would it be expensive? Is it too late? The answer to these questions are yes, no, and NO!

The solution to securing your family's future is term life insurance. Simply put, term life insurance makes sure that your family is financially secure in the event of your untimely death. Life insurance is essential for everyone, regardless of class or status.

Spicy Sausage Casserole for Dinner

We had this when we had my parents-in-law one day, when they helped hubby putting up our shed in "Our Shed Has Finally In Place". This is one of traditional English foods. At least I have learned some English cooking already, so having them is not that complicated anymore..

Easy to prepare:
All you need is Pork Sausages, Sausage Casserole Sauce in pack, Potatoes, boiled Peas & Sweetcorn, and Onions. If you wanna try just follow these simple steps:

1) Brown sausages in a little bit of oil in a saucepan and add onions for another 3-4 minutes.
2) Add the mix of sausage casserole pack in a glass of water to the saucepan with sausages.
3) Bring to boil and taste, boil peeled potatoes at the same time until tender, and in a separate saucepan boil the sweetcorn and peas altogether.
4) Mash the boiled potatoes, add a little bit of fresh milk and butter to taste.
5) Enjoy the English food!

Enjoy cooking.....:)

Gorgeous Flowers From Hubby

These are some of the flowers hubby had given me, he normally buys a bouquet a week! This one was two weeks ago.... and below was end of last week!People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad with joy the whole time to have such things about us.
~Iris Murdoch, A Fairly Honourable Defeat

For myself I hold no preferences among flowers, so long as they are wild, free, spontaneous. Bricks to all greenhouses! Black thumb and cutworm to the potted plant!

~Edward Abbey

Who can estimate the elevating and refining influences and moral value
of flowers with all their graceful forms, bewitching shades and combination
of colors and exquisitely varied perfumes?

These silent influences are
unconsciously felt even by those who do not appreciate them consciously
and thus with better and still better fruits, nuts, grains, vegetables and
flowers, will the earth be transformed, man's thought refined, and turned
from the base destructive forces into nobler production.

One which will
lift him to high planes of action toward the happy day when the Creator
of all this beautiful work is more acknowledged and loved, and where man
shall offer his brother man, not bullets and bayonets, but richer grains,
better fruit and fairer flowers from the bounty of this earth.

- Father George Schoener (1864 -1941),
The Importance and Fundamental Principles of Plant Breeding

Creamy Chicken Adobo

This is one of the Filipino foods my hubby loves so much! I know most of us know how to cook this, so there's no need for me to add the cooking procedures here (except that I have added a little bit of coconut milk).

So it tasted like sour-peppery and creamy, yummy though.... Why not trying as well. Enjoy cooking.....
