Motherly Vitori and His Secret Recipe

Posted on Thursday, August 12, 2010 |


"Mothers do extra-ordinary things in their own simple ways."

Motherly duties are not at all my forte. I can take minimal motherly tasks though like doing the dishes (my own but is negotiable) and the laundry (my own and will never change)!

I was home alone the whole day because my Uncle had to go to his friends house and his wife's store. So I had to fend for myself. Cook my own food and take care of his kids. Take note. Take care of his kids and that includes cooking dinner for them. I did not realize that those motherly instincts can resurface at any given time.

"I should've made my life easier by ordering french fries from the nearest McDonalds!"

As soon as the kids arrived from school, they asked me if I know how to cook French Fries and of course I said YES without any hesitation! Time for dinner and my Uncle has not arrived yet, they asked what's for dinner. Hence, I cooked rice, re-fried the fish I found on the fridge, reheated the vegetables and sauteed some Purefoods Corned Beef with Magic Sarap and Star Margarine (Iwas just experimenting.) But the kids liked it or maybe they were left without a choice.

"Gourmet Corned Beef Ingredients"

It did not end there. While watching my daily dose of Magkaribal, I saw my cousin Mitzi working hard on her t-shirt design project. She was meticulously and painstakingly inserting the needle with a thread on the littlest hole on that sequin. So I decided to help her out with the flower and Philippine map painting to save her from doing more mess on her designs.
"Good thing Mitzi did not do the same thing on her hands."

At the end of the day, I smiled at myself because I think I've done a pretty good job! (Applause please!)

Oh GOSH, how I LOVE your post
As a mother of 2 children I am really touched by your wonderfully woven words, and that reminds me that we had Mc Donald's for dinner. It was such a treat for the children as we try not to eat fast food all the time, but a mama needs her break once in a while right? :))

and I would like to say thank you so very much for your kind words, I am humbled and honoured

I hope we can keep in touch and I wish you the most wonderful weekend

Love Love Love
Jemina, xoxo

It's always interesting to get thrown into a situation watching little ones. It shows you what you're made of, and in my case that you aren't quite ready to be a mom yet!

Vitori Thinks said...
