My Homemade Bean Bread

November 30, 2013

Going to Seoul Market, in Springfield, Missouri, is one of my favorite places to shop. As the store has tons of products from the Philippines, and I always look forward to getting bean bread that I really love to eat. The last time we went to Seoul Market, the store was out of bean bread and I was very disappointed. The person I asked said; the products will arrive every Wednesday in boxes and it is always sold out the next day from their store. 

So I thought I can make my own besides, it cost quite a bit every time I will buy bean bread. Making homemade bean bread was very easy. I boiled a small packaged of red beans for about one hour or until the beans are done. Mashed with a spoon or you can put the beans in a food processor to create bean paste. Seasoned with sugar according to your taste of sweetness. 

Since I could not find puff pastry at Walmart, I used Pillsbury crescent rolls. Put the bean paste in the middle, brushed with egg wash then fold the sides into the middle. Brushed with egg wash on the top then put in the oven for about 12 minutes or until the bean bread is golden brown. My homemade bean bread tasted really good and I am going to make some more once I‘m out of my bread.

Thanksgiving Is Almost Here

November 26, 2013

Could you believe Thanksgiving is almost here? Yep! And my boy is very excited as he saw turkey on television and said; mommy its Thanksgiving. Every Thanksgiving we always visit with my husband’s sister who lives in Kansas City, Missouri, and his other sisters come down to Kansas City as well for Thanksgiving. Usually I pack our clothes ahead of time but at the moment I have not packed anything. Maybe later tonight or tomorrow I am going to start packing some belongings and my hubby can pack his own clothes. 

So, what are you most excited about for Thanksgiving? For me, is the food, seeing family members, watching Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, and of course shopping. We always shop the day after Thanksgiving and that’s the fun part finding deals at the store. There are some shoppers who already started camping at some stores here in Rogers. They want to get the best deals the store has to offer on Black Friday. 

This Thanksgiving and many years to come I have had so many reasons to be thankful. My family back home in the Philippines are all safe after typhoon Haiyan, destroyed every thing we had and lost so many lives. On Wednesday, it is my 6 years anniversary since I came here to the United States of America. Thanks to my wonderful husband and his family members for being so supportive with us.

The Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond

A few days ago, we went to Walmart and the parking lot was very crowded. I said to my hubby there must be something going on inside. So when we were inside we saw people in lines all the way to back so I said I don’t want to fall in line when it is for grocery checkout. That’s ridiculous! Then my husband asked an associate what’s the long line was all about and he said; The Pioneer Woman. I know The Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond, as I watch her show on Food Network. Though I never bought any of her cookbooks, I took a picture of her book signing autographs. 

As a viewer, I was very curious to see how she looked like in person but she looked the same on television. The Food Network Channel, have always been my past-time when I have nothing to watch on Bravo. Maybe when it was Giada De Laurentiis, Sandra Lee, Ina Garten, or Bobby Flay, I will buy their books and have it signed. So on our way back home, Doug, asked me if I was happy when I saw Ree Drummond, and I said hmmm I don’t know I was just curious how she looked like. 

Then what if you see Chris Hemsworth, and Liam Hemsworth, in person Doug, asked? I said; Oh my god! I’ll be screaming. To me the Hemsworth brothers are very handsome. How about Nene? Hmmm not really. She’s the one from The Real Housewives of Atlanta. How about Beyonce? I said; I’ll be screaming and jumping for joy when I see her in person. Beyonce is a very nice person. I got to know more about her when I watched her documentary, Life Is But a Dream, on HBO.
