Sam's Baby Shower Cake

Are you planning to make a cake for a friend's baby shower? This may help you get an idea how it should be decorated.
This is my step-son's girlfriend's cake baked by her sister for her baby shower. She made it herself. She is so artistic and decorated the cake beautifully. I would like to try making a cake for a friend and decorate it like this. I can use a cake mix and just buy cake icing and frosting. For sure, I will enjoy making it!

This is another dish cooked by Olga's Mom. Chicken Adobo with Upo and Ampalaya leaves. It's another Adobo version that you will like too. I like ampalaya (Bitter Melon) even if it's bitter. We grew up eating the bitter fruit so the leaves is not that bitter for me. Upo tastes good with any meat too. It's absorbs juice and that makes it so tasty. Aside from upo, sayote and papaya can also be used.

Adobo with Corn

Have you tried Chicken Adobo with Corn Kernel? It's new to me but when I tried it, it was good. There was a lot of flavor: sweet, salty and bitter. It was not only corn that was added, there were Ampalaya leaves too which tastes bitter but not as much as the fruit-bitter melon. It would only be bitter if you eat the leaves. But the dish was good. I would like to try it someday. Thanks to nanay (Olga's Mom) for letting me try one of her dishes.

Today's Meal

So I am watching my diet because I need to lose weight. After my pregnancy, I have gained more than 20 lbs and so far, I have only lost 10 lbs. I need to work hard to get rid of the eccess fat. I am overweight so I am eating only little but five times a day. I am trying though what hubby told me, eat only when you are hungry. Anyway, today's meal was rice, with hamburger patty, corn and shrimp. I pineapple slices for dessert.
