Vanishing cookies…

I baked this cookies the other day, somehow I want to make myself busy as I’ve been down this past days .  I miss baking too and I still have lots of leftover oatmeal so I then used the recipe that I got from  MARUISM. Cookies are not too sweet and I must say I like this one better than the first oatmeal cookie I have baked.

Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, beat butter and sugars on medium speed of electric mixer until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Add combined flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; mix well. Add oats and raisins; mix well.

beef afritada

beef afritada

Another Filipino dish. Afritada usually uses chicken but I just want to try beef . I cooked this using Pinay In Texas Cooking Corner  recipe but I did not put some of the ingredients  as I don’t have it. It is very delicious and my husband loves it. Another  keeper recipe for me 🙂

Procedure:
1. Marinate the pork in soy sauce, pineapple juice and garlic for at least 1 hour. Drain the pork. Save the marinade.
2. In a large saucepan over medium heat, sauté garlic in olive oil until light brown. Add onions and sauté until almost translucent. Add the pork. Saute until it turns light brown.
3. Add the marinade and tomato sauce. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes or until pork is almost tender. Season with salt and pepper to suit your taste.( Note: I use maggi magic sarap to add a magical taste )
4. Add the potatoes and bell peppers. Cover, lower heat to medium low and let simmer for about 5 minutes. Add green peas and carrots and simmer for 5 more minutes. From time to time, check to avoid drying and add water if necessary to attain the desired consistency of the sauce.
5. Remove from heat. Serve hot with steamed rice.
