Food-filled Summer Activities

I can’t believe that summer time is over and both kids will be starting school in just a few days! Here I am reminiscing about our food-filled summer activities that I hope will be etched in my kids’ memory banks.

No-Fuss Picnic

We wanted to have a leisurely breakfast, so we a got a mat, any food we fancied and sat down for almost 2 hours! No planning involved. Both Z and Y enjoyed and got to try different kinds of food.

#BakeOutoftheBox with Flour Plan

Like me, Z has a sweet tooth and a weakness for Crinkles (See my #CrinklesChronicles on Instagram). I chanced upon Flour Plan online and I thought it would be a great activity for us. Flour Plan makes baking easy for us moms because all the materials you need are included in the box (except for perishable items like egg and milk). The ingredients are pre-measured so you’ll just have to follow the cooking procedure. The steps were easy to follow, even non-bakers can make it! We made A LOT of crinkles to share with every one in the house!

DIY Pizza

I think kids are more open to trying out new food items when they’ve played with it. Such was the case when we made our own pizzas! Z and Y devoured the mushrooms, ham, onions, and cheese – even before the pizza got cooked!

Colored Bread

Here are the ingredients you need to make colored bread:

  • White Bread
  • Milk
  • Food Color
  • Sugar

Follow these steps:

  1. Divide the milk into different containers, depending on the colors you want to make.
  2. We experimented with the number of drops per food color and made cute combinations.
  3. You may use a brush or dropper to put the milk into the bread. Just make sure it won’t get soggy.
  4. Sprinkle a little bit of sugar to taste before toasting it.
  5. Serve with a little butter on the side and enjoy!

Food proves to be a common interest in my kids and I like that! I look forward to more foodventures with Z and Y 🙂

What were your memorable activities this summer?!

Shakeaway The Summer Heat!

Shakeaway is opening its second branch in the Philippines tomorrow, March 31 at Uptown Mall in BGC! The first 50 customers will get a free milkshake.

Shakeaway is the world’s largest milkshake bar company that offers 180 flavors and a million of possible combinations! Each milkshake is made by hand using only the freshest ingredients. It’s easy to get overwhelmed with all the choices, so you can start with their world famous named shakes like my favorite, the Casey – it has chocolate crinkles, Nestle Crunch with whipped cream on top.

And as a Shakeaway tradition, there’s an exclusive milkshake to its host country. Meet Jose:

They also offer traditional Filipino flavors such as chocnut, jackfruit, pandan cupcake and peanut kisses.

The Millionaire's Milkshake has edible 23 carat gold flakes!

It’s easy to go overboard with the toppings and calories, especially in this heat but if you’re going the healthy route, there’s also shakes made with fat-free frozen yoghurt and crunchy ice or you can also choose the shaved ice with fresh fruit toppings.

I’d like to go back and try my milkshake hot (apparently, it exists!) and also their low-fat fries!
