Recipe with Mozarella Cheese

One of my favorite cheese is Mozarella cheese and now I’m sharing to you some food recipes that I’ve made using this cheese. 

Bacon Cheese Bread 

Place the cooked bacon on top of the bread, add mozzarella cheese then bake it in the oven or oven toaster until cheese melt. 

Shrimp Wrapped in Bacon 

I posted this recipe before, check it here. But last week I used mozzarella cheese instead of cheddar cheese, I put the cheese on top of the shrimp. This was our lunch and dinner before Typhoon Glenda hit Cavite.  

Homemade Pizza 

For merienda, homemade pizza is an easy dish. Since I can’t make my own pizza dough, I always buy dough or I used slice of bread or pandesal. 

Baked Macaroni

If I have a lot of mozzarella, I used this in my Baked Macaroni instead of quickmelt cheese. 

Cheesy Garlic Bread

I used United Village Breadhouse Garlic Bread + Mozzarella Cheese then toast it in oven toaster. Yummy!

Oven Baked Salmon  

Sometimes I also put cheese on my Oven Baked Salmon, salmon is one of my favorite fish. 

Baked Eggs

Inspired by Before Ever After book, this is perfect meal for breakfast.

I also tried making Baked Mozzarella Sticks but it wasn’t successful maybe my breading is not thick enough. I saw this picture in Pinterest and tried it also and it is yummy too.

Bed + Mattress

When my son was 9 months old we decided to remove the bed frame and just place the mattress on the floor to have peace of mind that he will not fall from the bed. We’ve been sleeping on the floor for years already and I’ve been meaning to buy bed frame and mattress also. Now that my son is already five years old, I think this is the best time to be promoted. #ayawnasafloor 

Last month we went to Mandaue Foam to check for bed and mattress. We checked the different design and when I saw this I was sold already. I don’t care if there’s no headboard because I wanted a bed frame with drawers to maximize the space. Since our room has limited space we can only buy queen size. (masikip na nga sa queen)

For the mattress we chose Gala Bed Chiropractic, this is the description according to Mandaue website...

Description: Incorporates the world’s most advanced spring system for added spinal support and maximum comfort. 

Carry Capacity: Medium / HeavyComposition: Foam and Fabric backing with anti dust mite and anti-bacterial ticking

Height: 11½” 

Mattress Layer

1. Cover – Multi needle quilted to 28 Kg/m3 density foam and fabric backing with anti-dust mite and anti-bacterial ticking.
2. 1 – layer of 1 1/2” 35 kg/m3 high density fire retardant foam to add comfort.
3. Cover – Multi needle quilted to 28 Kg/m3 density foam and fabric backing with anti-dust mite and anti-bacterial ticking.
4. 1 – layer of 3/4” 35 kg/m3 high density fire retardant foam to add comfort.
5. 1 – layer of 3/4” 35 kg/m3 rebonded foam for additional comfort.
6. Parallel plastic net to add protection over the pocketed coils.
7. 2.3MM single wire chiro springs made of anti-rust, high carbon steel wires. 

So far we are happy with our bed and mattress and the only thing I dislike is, the mattress is too heavy for me that I'm having hard time lifting it when I'm changing the bed sheets. #hehehe

Our Typhoon Glenda Experience

I’ve been checking weather forecast since Sunday because of the impending typhoon Glenda. I’ve been hearing stories na parang Yolanda or Milenyo daw sa lakas so I was checking for the typhoon signal. I felt that I was prepared for the typhoon because we’re done with our grocery last Saturday, bought our weekly menu in the wet market last Sunday and still went to the grocery last Monday sa mga kulang pa. While waiting for class suspensions announcement, I was also preparing for my son’s assignment like 1x1 picture and smart casual attire for his graduation portrait. 

We live in Cavite but I transferred my son in CSA Binan so I have to check the class suspension in Laguna. Unlike in Cavite, mabilis si Gov. Remulla magtweet ng class supsension. Now, I’m still searching kung sino ba ifollow ko to know the class suspension immediately. No classes last Tuesday because Laguna was under Signal 1. Weather was still fine though there were occasional rainshowers. During our dinner, my husband said, nakakatakot sa labas sobrang tahimik. Which is true, wala hangin and wala malakas na ulan. I checked for class suspensions again, no classes again all levels in Cavite and Laguna because we’re under Signal 2. 

After dinner, we do our usual routine without knowing that after few hours, typhoon Glenda will strongly hit Cavite. At 1AM , I was awakened by the howling wind outside and I was so scared that I couldn’t sleep anymore. No more electricity around 2AM. I filled our water buckets with water para may ipon kami kahit konti. It’s been a long time since I’ve experienced this kind of wind so I was thinking na hindi ito Signal 2. Before 6AM, I decided to prepare for our breakfast and no more water supply. We only have 3 buckets of water plus 3 bottles (5 gallons) of mineral water to survive. No telephone lines and internet and our phone wasn’t fully charged except for the Ipad (prepared ang anak ko at nagcharged). We used one cellphone of my husband to check for news in FM radio. Thank God for the pocket wifi so we could check news online. We found out na Signal 3 na nga kami and the eye of the storm was in Cavite. 

I was praying hard for God’s protection and I was glad when the wind calmed around 10AM. I was thankful that our house was fine, our tree and plants were ok, though halos maubos na ang dahon. Some of our neighbors were affected, natanggalan ng bubong, nasira gate and naputol puno. At 4PM we decided to go out. We went to gas station para magpagas and bought some snacks in McDonalds.

Seeing the aftermath, I remembered my experienced last July 2011, no elec, water and internet and my husband was in Shanghai so ang hirap. I was thankful na kasama ko siya ngayon. I felt na matataglan pa ang black out sa dami ng natumba na puno so I cooked everything inside our freezer, drank the opened fresh milk, ate the yogurt etc. And that time parang nagsisisi ako na naggrocery ako, imagine I need to cook 1kl of hotdog, 1kl of chicken, 1/2 kl of tapa, 1/2 porkchop, 1/2 liempo, pack of bacon and saugage. I just cooked chicken adobo and fried everything. #buffetbreakfast.

Anyway, I was glad that after 44 hours we now have electricity, water, phone lines and internet. Life is back to normal now. I just realized that no matter how I plan or prepare, I’m still not in control. Now I’m planning to buy water drum for future use, more batteries for flashlight, rechargable radio/light, powerbank and more candles. I will stock more paper plates and disposable spoon, fork and cups. Yan ginamit namin para wala hugasin. Ito na lang natira sa candles namin buti na lang nagkakuryente na. 

Just to make me feel good, iniisip ko na lang na wala ito sa mga Yolanda survivors. At least kahit walang electicity, water, landline and internet we’re staying in our house. How about you?
