I Made Flan

January 15, 2015

It has been a tough week. Been sick most of the time and it is very frustrating when I couldn’t breathe very well. This morning I woke up around 4 in the morning and I started sneezing and had a runny nose at the same time. Is there any day that I will feel better even just for a day? I have not felt a day where I am feeling 100% with my health. Maybe I’m dying by taking my life slowly, just kidding. Finally, tomorrow is Friday! Really looking forward to this week especially Charles does not have school Monday. He can have a bubble bath that he has been wanting for so long. Well, tonight I made Flan, though in the Philippines, it is called Leche Flan. It is very easy to make. First, turn the oven to 350 degrees.


To make caramel:

2 cups brown sugar
2 tbsp water
Turn the heat low until the mixture is thicken. Then pour into ramekin bowl for about 2 tbsp each.

Flan Mixture:

1 large can condensed milk
1 large can evaporated milk
8 egg yolks

Blend the 3 ingredients for about 5 minutes on a blender. Pour the mixture into ramekin, about full in each bowl. On a baking dish put water and bake for about 40 minutes. Serve cold, taste really good.

Very Tough Year on My Family

January 01, 2015

Last year, has been very tough on my family. There have been many problems just kept on coming one after another. The last four months was the saddest months of all when we celebrated Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas Day, and New Year. Plus, being sick days before Christmas I thought I am not going to make it. It was the worst feeling I had in a long time. I was literally shaking even after taking medicine. Then Charles got sick on Christmas Day, it was very hard on me seeing him not feeling very well knowing he has to enjoy all his Christmas gifts. Charles hardly gets sick though I’d rather be sick than him as I am used to being sick all the time. Even after getting my flu shot I got sick right away. 

Well, I had my eye checked up just days ago and the result was very good. I thought I’ll be wearing eyeglasses by now, thank God, I don’t have to wear any. Still, I need to make another appointment to get my headaches, dizziness, and nausea checked. This is getting worse by taking my life away from doing things that I really like to do. Just today, was really bad as well. There are so many things that has to be done like putting our Christmas tree down, and cooking my dinner. Thankfully, Charles picked up all his toys around the house yesterday to keep his Super 8 hotel cleaned, haha. 

Earlier tonight, got some things done and cooked one of my favorite dishes. Sorry, I don’t have a recipe to share as I don’t measure anything when I cook except when I’m baking. Well, another year to start with and for New Year’s resolution I don’t have any. Though this year I am planning to renew my passport and hopefully visit to the Philippines before I apply for my Naturalization. Changing my citizenship is another big step for me knowing Doug really wanted me to change my citizenship for years. With Charles hopefully he would like to eat different types of foods before we visit to the Philippines.
