Mac and Cheese

It's almost merienda time and I wandered around the kitchen and looked for available ingredients which I can turn into a hearty (or NOT) meal. Hi, I am Charmaine and this was my attempt to cook macaroni and cheese, which turned out to be yummy (according to my son), hihi. ^_^


400 grams of elbow macaroni
1 small evaporated milk
1 large bottle of chezz whiz
bacon bits
cooking oil


  1. Set a large pot of water and let it boil; add a pinch of salt and a teaspoon of oil
  2. Fry the bacon bits. Set aside.
  3. Add the pasta, cook for about 10-12 minutes, you want it al dente, yes?
  4. Drain.
  5. Mix the cheez whiz and the evaporated milk in a pan, season it with salt and pepper. Low fire.
  6. Toss in the macaroni. Mix it for 2 minutes, let it simmer for another 5 minutes.
  7. Top it with bacon. 
  8. Happy eating! :)

Musings and Chenelin

Hi reader! I really do not know where to start; I do not even know where this post is going. But hey, I am trying to write something blogworthy (and if I fail to do so, please bear with me). What I miss the most about writing is the joy that I get whenever I can express my thoughts freely. It’s like talking to your crush and feeling all giddy without stuttering, K, I kid. Seriously, I miss doing a lot of things, to name a few, I miss taking pictures and cooking and reading books and doing movie marathons. I must admit, I fail at some points on my do-what-you-love list. Sad it may seem, I think I had lost it! I had lost the inspiration, or let me put it this way, maybe I am just too lazy to squeeze in those activities in my "schedule", but this doesn't mean that I had been idle for the past months, in fact, I am quite busy with my internship at the guidance office, some church activities, and various artsy-fartsy projects, not to mention how I struggle a lot to get past a level on Candy Crush Saga. Every. Single. Day. Meh! 

Hi, I am Charmaine, this is my nth attempt to revive this blog. Hopefully, I can write as regularly as possible and share with you my adventures as a mommy and as a college student and above else, talk about what Jesus has been doing in my life. :)
