Maskipaps Veggie Dishes Using Porksavor

When you’ve got two active little kids and no house helper, one of the things you absolutely must learn is to cook meals faster than they could finish their fave jigsaw puzzles.   Even if you’re no expert in the kitchen, you somehow find ways to whip up a dish in less than 15 minutes.  Not only that, you also get mighty good at making a meal out of whatever is in the fridge and pantry.

A few weeks ago, we were given a challenge to prepare a dish using PORKSAVOR™ All-in-One Seasoning Mix.  Since I’m no expert in the kitchen, I decided on making dishes that are quick and easy to cook using the usual veggies we have in the fridge. The first two dishes that I made used basically the same ingredients: carrots, potatoes, squash, tofu, and PORKSAVOR™.  The ingredients used for both cost less than 50 pesos in all.  Now that’s what you call a real budget meal!

For the first dish, VEGGIE LUMPIA, I julienned the carrots, potatoes, squash, and tofu.  While sauteing,  I added a dash of PORKSAVOR™ to add natural pork flavor to the dish.  Once cooked, I wrapped them in lumpia wrapper then deep fried them for a few seconds.  Prep and cooking time for this dish takes just around 10 minutes.

Crunchilicious delight! Even the non-veggie eater ate this one. :-)

Using half of the veggies above, I made some VEGGIE NUGGETS for the little girl’s baon.  The carrots, potatoes, and squash were diced, thrown together in a pot, and boiled til tender.  The tofu was mashed and seasoned with PORKSAVOR™ to allow the flavor to permeate.  Add boiled vegetables to the seasoned tofu and mash with a fork. I used a hand blender for this but the mixture turned out too mushy so better just mash the mixture with a fork to retain some texture.  Once veggies and tofu are evenly blended, form the mixture into any shape you want.  Dust with seasoned flour, Crispy Fry, or Japanese bread crumbs then deep fry for just a few seconds.

Thumbs up! Li’l girl always loves her bento baons. The veggie nuggets were tasty but were too mushy though. Thumbs down for using the hand blender. :P

Before publishing this post, I was able to cook another simple dish using PORKSAVOR™.  Another healthy budget meal,  this GINATAANG KALABASA WITH MALUNGGAY uses ingredients that also cost less than 50 pesos!  The kalabasa costs P10, the malunggay is P5, the gata(coconut cream) is around P10, and the PORKSAVOR™ just 2 pesos.  Moreover,  cooking this is a no-brainer as you only need to put everything together in a pan, boil, and simmer until cooked.  I actually ran out of gas while cooking this dish and had to finish cooking it in a rice cooker.  Although I left it longer that necessary in the rice cooker, the dish still tasted yummy.

These three dishes are so easy to cook that even kitchen newbs can whip them up without any trouble at all.  The humble veggies are given real meaty taste as the new PORKSAVOR™ All-in-One Seasoning Mix is made from natural pork meat extract and bone broth.  There’s also no need to use the typical panggisa garlic and onions because PORKSAVOR™ comes complete with spices and seasonings to bring out the deliciousness of home-cooked dishes.

Red Hot Sale Finds for Fashionista Moms

Hooray!!!  We’re finally seeing more of Mr. Sun after more than a week of intermittent rain showers!  Here’s something else to brighten your days the entire rainy month of August – the Robinsons Red Hot Sale!

 photo RedHotSale2014poster.jpg

On one of my very rare mom-me-time, I was able to go to Robinsons Galleria on the first weekend of the Red Hot Sale. I was able to check out furniture, kids’ apparel, jewelry, eyeglasses, clothes, and shoes. Here’s a rundown of some shops I checked out and my fab finds:

Freeway/Ensemble

This goes first on my list since this was where I got my best (read: most budget-friendly) finds.  See the bolero with a design by Vicente Manansala on it? Would you believe that I got it for only P99.50?! It was further marked down from its tag price of P199.  Such a steal, really!  Even if you’re on a tight budget, you could still update your wardrobe with blouses that go as low as P 199.50 and dresses at P599.

Unica Hija

Though not all items are on sale, you’ll still be able to find stylish blouses at 50% off.  Blouses on sale range from P 395 to P 595. I also saw several slacks on sale one of which I really wanted to try on but was short on time.  I hope it’ll still be there when I go back next weekend. It’s not often you get a good pair of slacks for only 500 pesos.

Karimadon

In need of more dresses?  Check out their sale rack.  The blue shift dress with matching bolero is not at only P599 – down by more than 50% from its original price of P1999.  If you have a little more extra shopping money, you may want to grab one of their latest designs as well.  :-)  And speaking of design, Karimadon also has an ongoing contest where you can stand to win up to P10,000 and to see your design in Karimadon’s Holiday Collection.  Check out www.facebook.com/karimadon/fashion for more details.

ResToeRun

P500 for comfy colourful Marie Claire wedges!!! Need I say more?  I’m sure that’ll have you running to ResToeRun already. Stocks are limited so better run fast.  I would have grabbed a couple of pairs but they, unfortunately, did not have them in size 5 (boo-hoo).  Also on sale are Salvatos foldable flip flops which now cost only P300. In case you get caught in a heavy downpour, having a pair of these would save your precious stilettos.

I was also able to check out Chez Le Furne, Sarabia Optical, OshKosh B’Gosh, Mothercare, and Toys ‘R Us. If I hadn’t promised hubby and the kids a movie treat that afternoon, I’d have probably scoured every shop in the mall. J Visit Tottering Mama again next week to see what I fab sale items I found from those stores.

I’m pretty sure you’re also now excited to check out what’s on Red Hot Sale.  Before you head to your fave Robinson Mall, add more mileage to your shopping fund by joining Robinsons contest on Instagram.  It’s a simple share and tag contest that might score you some GCs.  (link to instagram) After shopping, drop by the Robinsons Red Hot Sale booth for a chance to win a bottle of hand soap or goodies from URC.

Don’t let the rainy season dampen your spirit.  Check out the Robinsons Red Hot Sale to look fabulously hot despite the gloomy weather.  :-)
