GrapeFruit Benefits

We know eating fruits is good for our health. But fruits can be so expensive especially when you buy them off season. When I was a kid we eat a lot of grape fruit. My great-grandparents which was our neighbor had grape fruit that grew on their yard which also part of our yard. So we ate grape fruit almost everyday. Our grape fruit back in the Philippines is big. So when I got here in the US 5 yrs ago I keep looking for it every time we went to the supermarket. But I couldn't find any until 2yrs ago when I finally asked my husband about it. He told me that we have it here too. So he showed it to me and I was surprised to see that it wasn't big as I expected. We bought a bag and tried one when we got home. And yes he was right. The taste is a little bit bitter unlike my grandparents which was very sweet. But I was happy to eat grape fruit again after couple years of not having it. Now I eat grape fruit like there's no tomorrow :)

Anyway, when I tried to Google the health benefits of grape fruit, I was surprised to find out that it has a lot of health benefits that comes with the fruit by eating naturally. I learned that it can help in weight loss, since it is low in sodium, high in fat burning enzymes.Also, Grapefruit is very helpful in removing or dissolving inorganic calcium which may have formed in the cartilage of the joints. To read more of the health benefits of Grape Fruits, you can read it here.

We bought couple bags of chocolates, stuff toys, kitchenware for Valentines. All of them were 50% off. All the chocolates are going to be included in my balikbayan box to be shipped in the Philippines in a couple of months. The stuff toys that I bought were a good deal.

Buying A Car

My car is retiring on me. I bought it used 2yrs ago. And now, I definitely need a brand new car. Though I have no plan on buying a car this year, I have been shopping online and on paper. I've been researching on what to expect on buying a brand new car. Before I decide to get one, I have to know what my credit score is. One article I read that interest rates depends on your credit history and your credit score. So, since I have just started building my credit four years ago, I have to wait a couple of year to get a car loan. I also have to pay off my existing credit cards which can take me I guess another year. So by the time I paid them off, my credit score would look good.

It was a buzz everywhere wondering who could be the new Go Daddy Girl endorser. Well, it was first revealed at the Super Bowl XVL commercial during it's 2nd half with Danica Patrick and Michael Jillians. And I was shocked to see her.

Meatballs for Dinner

So I'm going to cook for dinner and we're having meatballs. We bought a bag of frozen meatballs the day before the snow storm or the "blizzard of 2011". I was thinking of cooking it on Wednesday but I didn't have time. So I am going to cook it today. With that, I will mix some barbecue sauce, ketchup and brown sugar on a crock pot as my sauce. And leave it slow cook until the sauce becomes sticky to the meat. It would be my first time cooking meatballs but not my first time eating.

Blizzard 2011


So it was the worst snow blizzard we had(2/2/11) here in Michigan. Roads were blocked, some stores were closed, schools were closed but as an employee taking care of the sick we had to work plus we stayed over in the morning since the day shift could not make it to work. And when I got home around noon, the road going to our house were blocked because the snow plow truck did the main road first "as usual". Good thing my co-worker(my neighbor who gave me the ride) drove her 2wheel drive truck so we were able to make it . Files and files of snow were dumped by the side of the road near our house. My hubby hired the snow plow guy for $20 to have our driveway plowed because there was no way he could do it with his snow blower.
When I got up from sleep after 5 hrs I went outside to take some pictures and it's nice to "see sunshine after a storm", it was beautiful.

Preparation for Winter Storm

It was forecast yesterday that storm is on our way starting Monday night until Wednesday. And we could get more than 3 inches of snow. In fact as of this moment (Monday 4am ET) the storm started already. It's windy and blizzard outside. So part of our storm preparation we're gonna stop at the store from work in the morning to get couple of groceries that would last a week for me and my husband.
My grocery lists includes 3packs of Aqaufina water . It's on sale right now so we're getting the limit of 3.
Then 2 or 3 dozens of eggs since we used a lot of eggs.
Next on my list is 3 gallons of milk since my husband drink a lot of milk everyday.
I might have buy couple bags of salads, fruits and couple of canned goods.
Couple loafs of bread, butter and cheese are in my list too.
We still have meat in the freezer so we might escape right now.

Hopefully we can make it to the store without having any problem. I'm glad we don't live in the country anymore because before we always get stranded in our house during bad weather. We'll I'm still praying that the road is not going to be bad this couple of days as we have to work every night.
