I’ve been a dakilang yaya (for free) for my two rascal nephews for almost 2 months now since their yayas left (manggulo ba sa bahay ang asawa ng yaya kasi). And it’s been so difficult finding a yaya this days. Those who wants to be a katulong (house-helper) do not want to take care of kids. All they want is to clean the house and cook and do the laundry (sigh). We need a yaya, someone who we can trust and who could take good care of these 2 naughty rascals. I won’t be staying long in the Philippines and my husband keeps on reminding me to process my papers the soonest so I could join him in Qatar the soonest. So please, if you know of anyone who can be a trusted yaya, please let us know. Thank you so much for the help and we greatly appreciate it.
My two rascal nephews, the 2 Ambritch, are choosy and difficult to feed specially during mealtimes. I have already employed different strategies like making them face the wall, or threatening them to whip them, and even scaring them with voodoo dolls and Mammy and my sibling #2’s dentures. Mammy would usually cook them their “food”. It’s a special food for the three rascals (2 nephews and a niece). I’d be posting their “food” later on. BUT, they’ve grown tired of it I believe. Every meal time is a chaos. There are Scoldings and shoutings (that’s me) and cryings or throwing tantrums (the kids) during lunch or dinner. I force feed them actually even if they don’t like the food (it’s healthy by the way). My nephew eldest nephew would voluntary eat on his own if the viand is egg or chicken adobo, but most of the time I force feed him armed with my whip-stick and a belt.
Just this morning, after the two pupils (eldest nephew and niece) went to school and as I am preparing for my youngest nephew’s breakfast, I found out that he is already eating the scrambled egg and corned beef that my sibling #2 cooked. He liked it so much that he didn’t even want to share it with me and I also need to hide away the remaining scrambled egg and corned beef from him before he overeats 🙂 I’ll let the two pupils try it during lunch to see if they will like it.
This is my sister #2’s recipe for scrambled egg and corned beef. By the way, she used Argentina corned beef which according to my Pappy tastes nothing like beef.
SCRAMBLED EGG & CORNED BEEF
Corned beef – 2 cans
Eggs, beaten – 3
Garlic, crushed – 3
Onions, diced – 2 medium
Salt & ground black pepper to taste
1. Heat the oil in a pan and sauté the garlic, onions, then the corned beef. Stir for a few minutes minutes.
2. Season with salt and black pepper.
3. Pour the egg on the corned beef and briskly stir it.
Serve with sinangag. (See sinangag recipe here )
