Tena Pads Just 99 Cents at CVS

I went to CVS last Monday this week hoping to grab a pack of Tena since I had a $2 manufacturer coupon and a $2 off $8 tampons or liners store coupons. I don’t really need pantiliners or pads right now as I still got a decent stock of them but since CVS was on the way to my other stop, might as well stop and see what I can find there.

Good enough I brought with me a few other coupons which aren’t expired and dug in my zipped wallet, I actually found 3 ($1 any tena product) other Tena coupons from a blinking machine long time ago and don’t expire until next month. So now, I got $8 of total store and manufacturer coupons with no extrabucks.

Promise, it was just an accidental haul of Tena pads, in the shelf, yellow tag says $2.99 and when I scanned the 14 pads packaging turned out to be just 99 cents. I couldn’t believe nobody bought them yet so I took all that’s left in there and one regular priced liner which I end up paying $6 plus tax for all 9 packs of pads/liners. One not pictured.

I always love it when I find deals I don’t expect, really. I could grin ear to ear for this knowing that I added my stockpile of pads/liners with this awesome brand. The reason this pads are on clearance is that the store is trying to get rid of the old packaging, there’s a new one out but, really, who can tell the difference? The quality of pads would just be the same as this one.

Filipino Comfort Foods

There are some things that can be bought here in North Texas that ease my homesickness or that bring me back home a little bit. When it comes to Filipino comfort foods, I can eat or cook them where I am. I again, say this is , I am one of the lucky people to be able to still eat the foods I love faraway from home.

You know in some other places of the United States, many of these foods that I am enjoying at home aren’t available in their places and never will be. For instance, they don’t get to taste the grilled milkfish (pictured below) because it isn’t available at the Asian Market. Not forgetting a glass of freshly grated young coconut meat with fresh milk and its natural juice. Yum oh so yum! I don’t mind buying a whole piece of young coconut for $3 each as long as what I’m getting is the real deal. I dread the idea of buying packed/bottled coconut water for it has preservatives in them and sugar, not worth my money!

On the side is tuna steak salad or “kinilaw” in our native tongue, we didn’t cook the fish instead, put some spicy vinegar in it, and let the vinegar cook the fish mixed with cucumber, tomatoes, ginger, a pinch of salt and voila!

Another food that I love bragging on Facebook is this Filipino delicacy called “binignit”. This is the closest binignit I can cook that we have back home, the Philippines. I got all the ingredients needed for it to be called, complete. Ingredients like landang, sago or tapioca pearl, ripe bananas, sweet potato, coconut milk, brown sugar. Well, I didn’t have a ripe jackfruit that gives it that sweet aromatic smell but I do have some natural flavoring drops in it.

If in case you want to know where I got landang which is the main ingredient of this delicacy, I brought it straight from the Philippines during my last visit to my hometown last year. Talking about it right now, makes me wanna eat binignit again for dinner.

Cooking Eggs Using Green Earth Pan by Ozeri

I couldn’t be more satisfied having this Green Earth Pan by Ozeri because it doesn’t require an oil to cook eggs in it. Aside from that, it is easy to clean and doesn’t give us the harmful chemicals that are released onto our food once the pan is heated. It features GREBLON, ultra-safe 100% PTFE free (PolyTetraFlouroEthylene) which is known to release toxic chemicals at high temperatures and PFOA (PerFlouroOctanoic Acid) which is known as a pollutant to the environment and has been under investigation by the EPA, ceramic non-stick coating from Germany.

It has elevated texture creates air pockets which distribute heat underneath food to enhance cooking, induction stove safe. It comes with a user instruction prior to first use as well as directions as to how to take care of the pan.

I’ve had it for weeks now and this is the only pan I can grab whenever I feel like cooking fried eggs or hot dogs for quick breakfast for my two girls. I love it as usual. Just a few of the Ozeri products they sent me for review for free in exchange of my honest opinion. One thing though, the handle is silicone coated but it gets really hot so I have to use a pan handle for it to protect my hand from too much heat. Other than, I cannot complain anything.

You can visit Ozeri’s Facebook Page to check out their latest products and news.

Buy this at AMAZON for $23.35 PRIME.

Delicious Good Filipino Food

Nothing beats home cooked Filipino food, I shall say. If you are a Filipino yourself, you would agree just by looking at the picture below. One of the dishes that I love cooking for my girls is pork adobo. They love the taste and the feeling of chewing a fatty part of the pork, “squishy baboy” as they call it. Even more delicious when paired with ripe mango and grits.

When the pork was still cooking, the girls couldn’t help but ask what I was cooking because of its delicious smell filling the entire house that probably made them hungry fast. I could eat pork adobo every meal for a week but in our household with 2 other mouths that love eating this dish, it surely wouldn’t last for long.

Pork adobo makes everyone’s stomach filled and happy, well, except for the dada for he didn’t know I cooked it.

What about you? What sort of food are you cooking at home and what’s your favorite dish?

Hollister Clearance Buy One Get One Free

One of my favorite shops to buy my clothing is Hollister. The material they used are soft and feels good on the skin plus, they have a wide array of selection when it comes to coats, jeans, flip flops, swim, sweaters, long sleeves and summer outfit. Aside from that, when they say “sale” it means deep discounts on their merchandise.

For instance, I scored these long sleeves stripes perfect for Fall for just $5.49 a piece and a $10 Hollister bra. You don’t normally spend a little over $20 for these clothing when you buy them in full price. The promo buy one get one free on clearance should still ongoing, so if you have a chance, head on to the closest Hollister store near you and shop for Summer/Fall outfits while supplies last.

Free Covergirl Lippies

Shopping tip: when you go out shopping and you have coupons at home, don’t forget to bring them for you will never know what you can find in stores you’re going to. For instance, I went to Albertson’s one day and found these Covergirl lipsticks on clearance for $1.99 each and a CG outlast nail polish for 99 cents. Gladly enough, I had my $4 off any CG product manufacturer coupon so I used it to buy two lippies and the nail polish. So, the $4 mq covers the lippies cost, I only had to pay 97 cents for the polish!

When you shop with an open mind, most likely you’ll bump into deals you don’t expect. That’s wise shopping for me. Can I afford to pay full price of Covergirl lippies and nail polishes? Sure, but I refuse to do it since I know heaps of ways to save on those items. Why pay more for items when you know you can get them for less, right?

Seafood Combo with Curry

If you have not tried this dish, well, you should soon. I tell you, it is awesomely good to the tastebuds. I love seafood but didn’t think about adding some curry into it ever. Curry, not only is healthy for our body but also it adds that spicy taste and aromatic smell of the dish we cook. Most people use it for chicken but it also is good for other dishes.

Seafood combo dish I followed from a friend a month ago! It is easy to cook and gives you a stomach satisfaction in just one serving.

In this recipe, I added the following;

4 pieces small size squid
1 large piece squid
half pound large shrimps
1 can coconut mulk
1 can young jackfruit meat
2 tbsp. curry powder
1 tsp. salt and pepper to taste
1 large green or red bell pepper
3 cloves minced garlic
1 medium onion
1 tbsp. olive oil

Here’s how:
Saute garlic and onions in a heated olive oil. Add seafood, stir until tender.
Add jackfruit, cook for 5 mins., add coconut milk, cover and let it boil a little bit.
Mix curry in half cup water, stir and pour into the pan, mix with ingredients. Cook for another 5 minutes.
Add seasonings and bell pepper! Serve and enjoy!
