Potato Flatbread with Chicken Flakes

Since the school year started, I’ve been thinking of ways to be more creative with our breakfast. My goal is to feed my kids a filling meal in the morning so they could be energized in school and be able to participate in activities. My kids usually have bread and pancakes for breakfast. They rarely eat rice in the morning. I started working around the same time that the school year started, so I needed to create breakfast as quickly as I could. Below is a recipe that is filling and easy to prepare and perfect for families who don't eat rice for breakfast. This is also a recipe where you can prepare the chicken filling in advance and store it in the refrigerator and even prepare the flatbread recipe separately on different days. This is perfect for working moms like me. My Potato Flatbread with Chicken Flakes recipe is easy, delicious, and healthy! It’s the perfect grab-and-go breakfast for busy bods.   Potato Flatbread: Ingredients: ·     150 grams U.S. dehydrated po

Kids Craze Warehouse Sale Loot

Last month we were able to visit the Kid’s Craze Warehouse Sale for three times in two consecutive weeks. The best part of the visit happened during the last day of their sale. Ever wonder why? Read on.

The main purpose why we went there was to simply buy holiday gifts for the kids. I know it won’t be a surprise for them anymore because we have to tag them along due to our yayaless situation. On a second thought, we just make them choose the gift they want.

As expected, the room is packed with people from all sorts. They sell items for kids from apparels, shoes and toys. I must say they really have marked down prizes for their items. But because it’s a warehouse sale, some toy boxes are already dented. As we go around, I saw in one corner the Robosapien V2 J has been fancying for years now. Then the boys were glued already and they were both ambivalent as to get the toy or not considering the condition of the box. The toy was originally priced P15000 the last time we saw it at Toys “R Us few years ago, but it was on sale for only P2000! It was indeed a great deal but more of a gamble as whether it will function well or not. Still, J bought the toy and got the little girl a rag doll with a marked down price of P450 from original price of P1500.
The first visit. We got the RS Version 2 Robot and a rag doll for the little girl.
The RS V2 robot's farewell. 

When we arrived home, they were very excited to try it out. It was indeed a great deal for few minutes because it did some tricks and eventually stopped. After few days of contemplation, we decided to return it and get the same item if they still have available or exchange it with a different toy having the same value. When we got there, things have gone worse! He saw a different kind of robot, which, is the RS Media, and the most expensive robot, originally priced at almost P30000 (Amazon price USD999) with a mark down value of P16000. Obviously I am not in favor of splurging that amount for a single toy. Instead, we got Mega Blocks for the kids originally priced at P3500 and we got only for P1800. I also got a pair of Fisher Price shoes for the little girl for only P100, a small RS Version1 robot and some toy cars.

Second visit's loots.
But since J really wanted to have the RS Media, we went there during the last day of the warehouse sale. He was a happy camper because he got to take home the toy and got it from a fraction of the marked down price. We immediately try it out and fortunately the toy is functioning very well. The box is old and dented but the item is still in pristine condition.

Happy Campers.
The kids and the new baby.
My babies had a merry holiday and very happy with their loots. Hope to visit them again this year and looking forward for good finds!
