Review: Latin Food Restaurant In West Monroe

A few days ago, my friend, Helen, called me and invited me for breakfast to this Latin restaurant just a few miles from where we both live. I always passed this place whenever I am driving around the area. However, I didn’t get the chance to stop by and try their food until this day.

It looks so small outside, but this restaurant has pretty good space inside. The place has a relaxing atmosphere, and it’s pretty clean too! The only downside is the parking area. The parking area is too small. You have to either park to the next building’s parking lot, or to the other side, which is a gas station.

I had a great time eating breakfast with my friends, Hele and Mishelle. They told me that the coffee is excellent. So I did have a coffee, and yes, it was good! I may have found a place to get a good coffee, after all. I also had an omelet for breakfast, and it goes with purple rice with beans in it. It’s called Morocco rice. It was pretty good. It reminded me of the purple rice back home (Philippines), we called it “Tapul,” meaning “Purple” in our region.

Later on that very same day, I told Sean about the place when he came home from work, and we decided to dine there for dinner. We had a good experience there. The food was excellent, and their menu prices are very reasonable. This place is worth checking out if you live in the West Monroe area and haven’t been to this place, you need to check this place out.

This coffee is really good!
This serving shocked us. This looks like an order for two ♥♥♥. Sean couldn’t finish his order. It was a lot!





Review: 2Dudes Brew & Que Barbecue Restaurant in Monroe

I can’t believe we haven’t been to this restaurant before because this place is incredible! This place is very clean. The food was tasty, and the service was outstanding. This place is by far the only restaurant (from all the restaurants we dined in) in the Twin Cities that has the best sausage, in my opinion. Their menu prices are very affordable, as well. I’m so glad Sean was able to find this place while randomly searching for restaurants in Monroe. We had a great time, and the food we ordered was fantastic! If you haven’t been to this place yet, be sure to give them a visit. The only thing I don’t like is the parking space. We had to park a little farther. However, if you don’t mind walking for a little bit, then it shouldn’t be a big deal. So, go ahead and visit this restaurant. ♥♥♥

Review: Starbucks Hot Cocoa Salted Caramel

I’m a hot cocoa drinker, yes I am! However, I wouldn’t say I like every hot cocoa flavors out there. I tried different flavors, some are okay, and some I don’t like. Well, a week ago, Sean bought me this Starbucks Hot Cocoa Salted Caramel at Wal-Mart. At first, I was like, “Okay, let me try this and see if I’ll like it.” Guess what?; this is what I was exactly looking for a hot cocoa taste. The taste of this one makes me feel so close to home (Philippines). I can taste the cocoa in it. That little bitter taste in it makes it tastes excellent. I don’t add any milk to it. I like the flavor more without adding milk in it. So thankful to Sean for this ♥.

Drinking my hot cocoa and partnered it with Filipino Puto (steamed muffin). YUM!!

Fun Night: When Filipinos Get Together Expect To Laugh Hard and Sing Karaoke

We were so full and had so much fun at the Paragas’ beautiful home and a beautiful family. There was a time that I thought I would pee on myself laughing so hard. We could barely stop laughing. We ate, we sang karaoke, and we danced. We enjoyed each other’s company and conversations from 6:00 pm to 12:00 midnight. It was a great night, and we all had a blast! Of course, we were planning to do it again at least once a month and looking forward to doing it again with them♥♥♥.

Let’s eat some crawfish.
Banat Mishelle ♥
Me being silly.
It’s Sally’s turn to sing♥.
Let’s sing more.
We are having fun
Pose pa minsan-minsan.
Oh, diba ang saya namin.
Kuya Larry’s turn to sing.
Ready for more songs.
We dubbed ourselves as the “Funky Town” team. lol!
Beautiful couple ♥

Monday Be Like For This Little Momma

How are you all doing, and how was your Monday? My Monday was pretty much about cleaning closets. I started working on my boys’ wardrobes and pulled out the clothes that they don’t wear and couldn’t wear anymore. Some of them I’m going to send out to the Philippines, and the rest will be donated. It felt so good and light after I finished my 8-year-old’s closet for today. It was a mess! Boys love pulling out clothes and throwing them everywhere if they don’t like them instead of putting them back where they got them. Picking up their clothes is a daily routine for this little momma here.
Aside from cleaning closets, I went to Wal-Mart to get some groceries when the rain stopped pouring at about 4:30 pm. Yeah, we had nasty weather all day long, and today’s weather condition was the total opposite of yesterday. The weather yesterday was so beautiful! I had fun with the kids and the dog outside. They were running around in their sleeveless shirt, and I was in my shorts. Oh, Louisiana weather! To those who are driving in the rain, please be safe and drive carefully!

Can you see my fur-baby? She blended well to those clothes on the bed. LOL!


My little copycat behind me. Hahahaha!
It felt like Summer time yesterday!
Had so much fun running around the backyard.
Princess fur-baby, Daisy. She is getting heavier!
