Ahh, finally something semi-worthy to blog about! Its been quiet these past few months amongst the Dubyah household. Nothing really special has been happening except just literally enjoying the sunshine at its finest. I don't know what it is with me these days, but I try to get out every chance I get whenever I see the forecast set for extremely sunny days, or even semi sunny days. Heck, I'll take anything so long as it's not dewey drops. 

So here's what's been going. Please excuse my randomness. 

I was surprised that the hubs purchased Maddie the Bacon Breakfast and Eggs treats that my dad lovingly gives her when she's at my parents house. She loooooves them! I guess when he saw that there was a $1 off coupon making the total come to a mere $1.29, he spontaneously without a single apprehension tossed it into our shopping cart. Wow. That was a first! 

They are meant to replicate an actual breakfast. Too funny, yes? 

Today, I cooked, no wait attempted to make a third Filipino dish called Chicken Afritada. When I saw that my girlfriend on Facebook was making it, I thought, why not? I'll give it a go. Don't you just love how Facebook can inadvertently cause you do so something spontaneously? 

Looked at  this recipe and didn't think it looked too complicated. 

One and a half hours later, I produced this! 

I can't wait to eat it for dinner when I go into work tonight. For those that are wanting to be in the "know",  chicken afritada is baseically a chicken and/or pork dish that is tomato based with potatoes, peas, and carrots. Oh yeah, and us Filipino's for some odd reason are obsessed with putting hot dogs or vienna sausages in our foods. So, with tradition, I put some hot dogs in my chicken afritada. But, ah, only the best hot dogs! They were cut up Nathan's hot dogs!
