Easy and Real Chicken Nuggets for Kids

Everybody loves those chicken nuggets in the grocery. I stopped buying several years ago though, when an environmental org came out with a list of products using genetically modified corn. The list included those chicken nuggets, and so I stopped buying.

Fast forward to today. Thing2 keeps hankering to bring nuggets to school. Seems all his classmates bring the nuggets for packed lunch.

But it has genetically modified corn! I protest.

"I don't care." says 8-year old.

Well I'll make our own.

Slow-mo scream of anguish, "Noooooo..."

Anyhoo, much to my disbelief, I made my own nuggets for 8-year old last night. At least, whatever gmo the chicken I used ate, I don't know about.

If my recipe is real primitive, (w/o measurements and all), well, that's how I cook! Drives my mom up the wall... Just want to demo that cooking for the family can be done by dorks too. Not really rocket science, just need some daring and kapal-muks(thick skin) to watch the reaction of the family.

Need: Chicken breast, flavoring, quick-cooking oats

1. Fillet the chicken breast. Slice/ chop into teeny weeny bits. Great for stress reduction.
2. Put salt and pepper to taste. Add your child's favorite flavor if any, like cajun powder or those breading mixes if you like.
3. Put some oatmeal in. Your call if you want it batter-y or dry and pasty.
4. Shape into nuggets or gold bars (the big blocks) if your child will like it so.
5. Fry in the morning. 1-2 minutes for soft nuggets, longer if you want it crispy.

What did it taste like? Mine tastes like.. chicken.

Diliman Preparatory School QC Rocks

Summary: This is a School Review, based on our family's experience.

If you are looking for an excellent school in Quezon City for your elementary or high school children, Diliman Preparatory School along Commonwealth offers up-to-date competitive curriculum in Mathematics, Sciences and Reading. They also have excellent extra-curriculum activities that will help give your children a holistic education.

Last week, at my son's academic achievement awarding ceremony (he got the no.1 honor in class again, yay! Good job, son!), the CEO of the school talked to the parents about the achievements of the school for the year, and the changes for next year.

To be quick about it, this year, Diliman Preparatory School:
- started with the Singaporean Math curriculum
- used the very new Learning by Design Reading program (it's a research-based and assessment-based reading curriculum)
- I noticed they introduced Robotics this year
- There are more changes I approve of but I won't list …

Another birthday...

I can't believe my teen is now 15!

I saw my old post about Isiah's birthday in 2008 and wow... time does fly.

Well, Isiah's 15 today and things are still quite smooth sailing.

No honors in school this year, but that's alright.
He is passionate about his music more than ever. I admire that he regularly sets aside time to study and practice music on his own.
He is not as relationship-crazy or girl-crazy the past months, I wonder why.
He is totally into new-age yikies like meditation and chakras.
Seems like he is generally enjoying his school and friends.

I do bare my fangs for him mostly over his chore of washing the dishes, but that's about it. Yeah, boring.

But for this kind of boring, I am totally grateful. Yay.

Happy birthday son. Thank you for honoring my life with your presence. Love always,

You Know They've Grown Again When...

I've never done this to my kids, but some parents tell their kids "If you're bad, I will go away."

I knew my 10 year old has grown again when I told him before my night out, "If you're going to be so difficult, I will stay in and cancel." Watch me watch you the whole night.

Yeah, that pretty much got him behaved. I was able to go out. ;-)
