Thankful Thursday: Errands + Holidays

Thankful Thursday, mum's thoughts, gratitude

As we stick to our New Year goal of spending more time outdoors, I was thankful to spend some lovely time under the sun yesterday. I thought it would be a great time to run errands and spend more time outside since the little guy won’t have school today because of the Chinese New Year holiday. It was actually the little man’s idea that we proceed to the nearby park after getting a quick bite at the local fast food, where we’ve been for a number of times this week since someone is collecting their latest Happy Meal toys. I am glad he’s finally managed to complete the collection and I am also delighted I agreed to his brilliant suggestion. It was the perfect way to spend the afternoon away, a great opportunity to burn the excess fats, and snap a number of beautiful shots, too!

Ordering Food Online Is Now Easy-Breezy With FoodPanda.Ph

We probably spend about a third of our mum time in the kitchen, cutting veggies and chopping up ingredients for dinner or simmering a hearty dish at the stove top. Inasmuch as we would like to prepare delicious meals and dishes for the family three times a day, though, there comes a time when you are stumped with way too many chores and work deadlines to beat that you’d wish you have a magic wand much like mum Molly in the Harry Potter series that will allow for your pots and pans to cook hearty meals and delicious dishes on their own. It would’ve been the perfect household help, right? Alas, we can only wish too much for a magic wand, but if culinary-challenged mums like me is way too busy or way too lazy to cook dinner for the family, it is good to know that we can count on FoodPanda.ph to deliver our choice of dinner treats right at our doorsteps without having to break a sweat!

So, I was feeling a bit tired to tackle the chopping board and and the stove the other night and thought it was the best time to give FoodPanda.ph a try. I was craving for some pasta and pizza and opted to order Spaghetti with meatballs and a pan of cheese pizza from Yellow Cab. I had the food delivered to my brother’s workplace in Quezon City as FoodPanda.ph does not cover our city yet.

Here are the easy-peasy steps I followed to order our instant yet delectable meal:

Mum Finds: Cool Number Biscuits

I chanced upon this Number Biscuits while doing the grocery with my boys. In my quest to make my little man’s snack  box interesting so he will be enticed to eat everything I put in there, I got a pack of this thinking this would perfect for the little schooler’s number-themed food picks. Jared has yet to find the fascination for biscuits and pastries, but I put those in his lunch box, any way, hoping he’d take a bite or two of the treats I prepared for him one of these days.

I immediately put these cute number biscuits to good use and included a bunch in the little one’s baon for school today. I threw in a bunch of bear-and-car-shaped slices of luncheon meat, which is among the little guy’s “unhealthy” faves. The bear-shaped luncheon meat was inspired by Paddington, Jared’s current fave film. I do hope the little guy will find these number biscuits interesting enough to eat. I guess I got too excited that I forgot to throw in a couple of cutey picks into the box. Good thing I included the little one’s fork!

What are your current lunchbox finds? I’d love to read all about it, who knows maybe my little picky eater might like it too! 🙂
