🍙It’s Tuesday! You know what that means?! It’s cook through your pantry day cause I’m waiting to go grocery shopping tomorrow for 🌱 #doubleadwednesday @sprouts 😆 Today’s Pantry Special: 🍚Spam Musubi with Pineapple Glaze. 🙃I was in a funk and was feeling super uninspired... I visited my “friend in my head” @honeysucklebeez for inspiration and here we are.... #spammusubi 😋 🍙Spam : first introduced in 1937 and gained popularity worldwide after its use during World War II. It’s a brand of canned cooked meat made by @hormelfoods . - #wikipedia 🍍 Spam is a staple on the islands and if you have any ounce of Filipino, OR Island blood in you, you have had spam for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack! 😆 🍍Have I shared with you my Super easy Spam Fried Rice Recipe yet?! 🤔 🍍 I guess it’s an “acquired” taste, but I’m so used to it, it’s like water to me 😆😬 Don’t knock it till you try it! 🤙🏽 🐼I added the #pandaricemold for cuteness and so my toddler would eat it. 🤷🏽‍♀️ 🍍This was fun and easy to make. I usually make it with Katsu sauce, so the pineapple glaze was new and super tasty!😋🍍Let me know if you want me to share the recipe! #buzybeez #spam #spammusubi #hormelfoods #pineapple #dolefoods #lunch #riceandspam #furikake #mamaof3 #inspo #lunchideas #dinnerideas #cookthroughyourpantrytuesday #chunkypineapplemama

⭐️My first review! 🎨We checked out the Creativity Classes at @michaelsstores over the weekend. 💵I paid $2 for my 3 year old and $5 each for my 8 year olds. At first glance (after the fact), I would have preferred they all did the $2 craft (the painting) that way I can frame all 3 and hang around the house. 🙁 I was a bit disappointed with the $5 craft. 🙄 My hubby accompanied the kids while I shopped around the store for Spirit Week items. 🛒🍍MY honest opinion: 🍍I could have totally facilitated these crafts with my kids. 🍍Not worth $12 BUT I do see the value in kids going to a workshop type setting and making crafts with their peers etc.. BUT still... my frugal 🍑 was dying inside when I saw the twins’ flimsy pineapples... 😩 But outside, this Mama was so proud! 😆 🍍Not what I was expecting according to the sample craft I (thought) I saw online. - I can’t find it anymore for reference! 😒 🍍Final thoughts... great activity to take your kids to if you are short on craft supplies, time, patience, etc.. (totally ok, I have my moments too) , gave me a wake up call to use my semi crafty skills and super organized (most of the time) skills and just plan ahead to have craft time with my kids (like I used to when I only had 2) 😬 ➡️Y’all this 3 kid situation is HARD! 🤦🏽‍♀️ (hats off to Mamas juggling around 3 or more! 🙌🏽)✨Anyway, as I always say, to each their own.. Lesson learned. ✨Never underestimate your skills (hidden or expert). Save some time, some money, and disappointment and do it your darn self! 💪🏽 ✨PSA: no knock on @michaelsstores , I think it’s great that they offer these classes for kids! Great experience for kids to learn something new and find their creative bug 🐞BUT this learning moment gave this Mama some inspiration! 🖍I’m going to work hard on making crafts a thing this summer. ☀️Don’t worry, @michaelsstores you are still going to get my 💵 so I can buy all the things...😆 #artsandcrafts #pineapplecraft #michaels #kidscrafts #diy #diymom #summeractivitiesforkids #frugalmom #mamaof3 #chunkypineapplemamareview #chunkypineapplemama

👩🏽‍🔬 So... I finally gave in to this slime situation. 🙄 My kids have been begging me to get them the supplies to make slime at home... ☀️The summer is quickly approaching and I’m slowly starting to panic! 😬 I’ve been working on a summer schedule filled with arts and crafts🎨, reading... lots of reading 📚, grade level packets 📝, journals 📓, day trips 🚲, and of course playing.. lots of playing 🏖! 🤞🏽 fingers crossed we can do a mini family vacation too! 👩🏽‍🔬 Anyway, THIS was fun to make. I made it in front of the kids to do a “test” run and I actually had a lot fun! 😆 I also got a mini arm workout in. 💪🏽 Heads up, I made this slime like I cook... 👀I eyeball the measurements, so forgive me if you need exact numbers... 😬 Let me know if you want the instructions on how to make slime. 📝 #slime #diy #kidprojects #summeractivitiesforkids #mamaof3 #elmersglue #armandhammer #creatology #upandup #target #gladproducts #michaels #artsandcrafts #craftymom #diymom #budgetcrafts #chunkypineapplemama

🍊 Healthier Orange Chicken inspired by @honeysucklebeez 🐝 This tastes so good and super inexpensive to make! 🤗 Also, did you notice the #brownrice ?! 😱 #babysteps 👍🏽Don’t get me wrong, I’m a white rice kinda gal (you can’t eat Sinigang or Chicken Adobo with any other carb🍚... it’s just not natural) 😏 🍍I TRY to make dinner ahead of time and store it in the fridge so that I can have more time to help the kids with their homework, clean, etc. When it’s time for dinner, I reheat the meal on the stove and we are good to go! #buzybeez #orangechicken #healthylifestyle #brownricebowl #chickenbowl #food #balance #dinner #familydinner #famof5 #mamaof3 #dinnerinspo #chunkypineapplemama

😌🍍Fact: I love grocery shopping and having the fridge full of fresh food. ✨Goal: make this haul last AT LEAST 12 days! 😬🍍 As a family of 5, food is such a big part of our budget and life!🍴We make it a point to limit eating out to once a week. If we don’t eat out at all, we take that money and save it for another expense. 💲It can cost up to $60 for our family to eat ONE meal out! 😩That adds up! 😏If you know me, you know I’m obsessed with packing snacks and food every time we leave the house (to avoid buying food ). 🍎By preparing your own snacks and meals, you definitely cut down on costs and calories. 👍🏽Although it’s tough to pass on the pretzels or smoothies at the mall, I always feel so accomplished passing them up (saving money) and eating my healthier snacks! 😋 And when it comes to the kids, they have been so used to me packing them snacks, mall food or treats don’t even phase them. 🙌🏽 Yay for no whining or complaining! 😀 #sproutsfarmersmarket #sprouts #groceryhaul #familyof5 #fruitsandveggies #mealprep #snackprep #balance #organic #doubleadwednesday #savemoney #mamaof3 #chunkypineapplemama

✨Mother’s Day Coffee Date with the hubby. ☕️He knows how much I love searching for new coffee shops and my love for coffee & pastries. 🥐He also knows as a SAHM, as much as I love these kids, I also love my alone time (when I can get it.) 😩Thankful for my parents who babysat while I over caffeinated. Thank you thank you to my love for a great weekend of sipping coffee and actually FINISHING a warm cup without having to microwave it 10 times before noon. 😉 The Nutella Crisp was amazzzzing!

🥝Dragon Fruit Smoothie Bowl for today’s breakfast. Had to rush this bowl cause the toddler wanted spaghetti out of no where and wouldn’t take no for an answer.. 🤷🏽‍♀️🍝 First of all NO... Second of all it’s 10 AM... and third of all NO. 🤦🏽‍♀️ Anyway, we compromised and I am currently sharing my “spaghetti” with her. #smoothiebowl #dragonfruit #dragonfruitsmoothiebowl #balance #sprouts #ilovesprouts #organic #traderjoes #chunkypineapplemama

Excuse the ocean fest but since it’s #motheroceanday I figured I post all my ocean pics from my phone so I can free up some space 🤷🏽‍♀️😆 This was taken on another “recharge trip” with the kids (again). This was in Half Moon Bay. Another lovely place to visit. Delicious food, much quieter than the usual hustle and bustle in Monterey, but just as fun. I love this particular trip because we were able to get a free night at the hotel we were staying at! So we extended our mini vacay! Long story short, the hubby made a reasonable complaint due to a mishap with the toilet and a not so good recommendation to use a bucket instead... 🤦🏽‍♀️ We can laugh now but Lord that was a mess and funny! Anyway, we were able to score a free night and had a wonderful time! Thank you to the management at @oceanohotelspa for the stay. We can’t wait to visit again. #halfmoonbay #oceanohotelandspa #motheroceanday #mamaof3 #california #chunkypineapplemama at Half Moon Bay, California

🌊 I love visiting Cannery Row in Monterey, CA. I love the food, the walking trails, and the views. I took this on a “recharge trip” with the family... So not necessarily recharged from the kids, but it was still nice to enjoy the fresh ocean air together. I can not stress enough how important it is for parents (especially moms) (especially stay at home moms) to take a trip or two during the year to recharge. We go for so long caring for our kids and husbands that we often neglect our selves. 😔Even if it’s just for a weekend, take time away to focus on you and B R E A T H E. Can’t wait to go back! #canneryrow #montereybay #california #sahm #mamaof3 #oceanviews #motheroceanday #montereycalifornia #chunkypineapplemama at Monterey, California

🍓 Today’s @yumboxlunch . I really need to get the #Yumbox Panino soon so I can actually fit a sandwich and not have to pack it separately. 🤔 Anyway, people always ask me how do I get my kids to eat vegetables. My 8 year old twins were “trained” to eat veggies as soon as they had teeth. To this day my son will eat every vegetable under the sun, raw or cooked. 🥗My daughter will eat MOST and can be (at times) bribed into eating some of her veggies when dessert is involved. 🍰Nonetheless it’s not a big deal and they will eat veggies and love salad! 🥦My toddler on the other hand is the baby and well... she’s a bit spoiled and it takes some work to have her eat her veggies. Honestly... I give her organic ketchup 🍅to dip her veggies in so she can eat it! 🤦🏽‍♀️I’m hoping this “stage” will end soon but at least she’s eating (most) them! 😆🤷🏽‍♀️ #yumboxlunch #bento #schoollunch #lunchtime #kidslunch #baon #salad #sprouts #ilovesprouts #balance #mamaof3 #balance #chunkypineapplemama

🥗 Easy Spring / Summer Pasta Salad. #day3 🥒Made enough for the hubby and the kids to take for lunch today. I’ll post their Yumbox lunch later. I’m contemplating posting my hubby’s lunches but he doesn’t have a cute #Yumbox soooo... I’ll wait until we get him a nicer container for his lunches that his amazing wifey makes for him💁🏽‍♀️ 🍅 All ingredients are from @sporuts and it took me less than 30 minutes to prepare. Chill in the fridge and enjoy for the next 2 days. #pastasalad #coldpastasalad #summersalad #springsalad #lunchtime #lunch #sprouts #ilovesprouts #balance #mamaof3 #norcal #chunkypineapplemama

Thank you Baby Jesus for meal prepping! 🙌🏽 😩 ✨Fact: My loving hubby bought me Oreos on Saturday cause 1) my favorite 2) I was craving it 🤦🏽‍♀️ 3) not buying it was not an option 🙅🏽‍♀️. ✨ Fact: much of my overeating and recent weight gain is because of my tendency to eat my feelings away... literally 😭 I’m an emotional eater and if you know me, I’m an emotional person... Sooo not a good combo. 🤦🏽‍♀️Anyway... fast forward to today and I’ve had my eye on these Oreos ALL DAYYY! 👀Don’t get me wrong, I’m not going to deprive myself of life’s luxuries 😋 but because this is #day2 I wanted to challenge myself to NOT eat that (1) Oreo that will turn into (6). 🍓Enter the strawberry chia pudding I made last night. The importance of meal prep is so important not just for those watching their intake but for moms / dads , pregnant mamas, college students, kids etc. I’m not completely out of the woods yet, but my sweet craving has been satisfied with my chia pudding 😌 #mealprep #chiapudding #snacksonsnacks #oreos #iloveoreos #balance #challengeaccepted #mamaof3 #sahm #coconutmilk #organic #ilovesprouts #sprouts #chunkypineapplemama

🍓 Breakfast . I’m going to slowly start eating better again and hopefully start getting back into my workouts. I’ve been going through some thangs! But the sun is slowly starting to peek through the clouds and I’m trying to focus my mind on the positive and that starts with fueling my body with healthier options and less junk. Posting this so I can be accountable. 💪🏽Don’t judge when you see a donut or 2... I’m not perfect. 😉 ✨Fact: I once lost 75 pounds with healthy eating and working out twice a day. I had 2 year old twins at the time and battling an added autoimmune disease to my already chronic condition. ✨If I could do it then, I can definitely do it now! 💪🏽 #breakfastsmoothie #smoothiebowl #smoothie #healthylifestyle #balance #fuelyourbody #sproutsfarmersmarket #traderjoes #organic #mentalhealthawareness #autoimmunedisease #mamaof3 #chunkypineapplemama #day1

☀️ Melanoma is the most serious form of skin cancer. ☀️ 1 in 5 Americans will develop skin cancer. ☀️ If treated early, survival rate is 99% . ☀️ Around 70% most melanomas begin in or near an existing mile or dark spot on the skin. ☀️ Regular daily use of SPF of 15 or higher (I prefer 30 or higher) reduces risk of melanoma by almost 50% . #melanomaawareness #melanomaawarenessmonth #melanoma #skincancer #skincancerawarenessmonth #checkyoself #may #licensedesthetician #esthetician #norcalesthetician #skincare #chunkypineapplemama

They had beautiful flowers all around the park. Such a fun place to take your kids! Can’t wait to go back. Very family friendly!

🍚 Korean Beef Bowl Meal Prep Thank you @damn_delicious 🤗for this yummy recipe! I made a few changes and used ground chicken 🐓instead of beef 🐄and used white rice instead of brown.

I guess it’s Filipino week in my house. 😆Growing up in my grandmother’s kitchen, I learned so much about cooking Filipino dishes. Prep your food before you cook, and always, always have Patis in your pantry cause you will use it all the time! 🐟 I would say my love for cooking came from watching Inang (mother in Ilokano)cook literally all day. She never complained (out loud at least) about cooking all the time. She just enjoyed seeing her meals bring the family together to share a meal at the table and talk story. Back then, we didn’t have cell phones or iPads to distract us at the dinner table and I love that. She never knew this , but I used to love watching her every move as she cooked. I may have been 6 or 8 years old and I didn’t know it yet but I was collecting mental notes into my memory bank for future use. I carry many of the same traditions into my kitchen and find cooking to be very therapeutic especially when I cook the same dishes Inang would make when I was a little girl. It almost feels as though she is in the kitchen with me guiding me as I chop and telling me to add more patis for more flavor. I miss that lady but I love that I have those memories of her cooking in the kitchen. I love that I can now do the same for my kids as they devour the dishes from their culture. #balatong #monggoguisado #filipinodish #filipinofood #filipinofoodmovement #lunchtime #dinnertime #filipinotraditions #filipinokitchen #internationalkitchen #patis #chunkypineapplemama

🍍Happy National Siblings Day! I’m the only child and to this day I still wish I had siblings. 😭 I know it sounds crazy but if I could have more children, I would. 🤪 I just love the idea of a huge family and having every child have someone to play and grow up with. I grew up closely with my cousins and we are still pretty close and I totally think of them as my siblings. So I still feel blessed. ❤️ My kids drive me crazy everyday but I love them to pieces even though they have been adding white hairs to my head on the daily. 🤦🏽‍♀️I have a set of boy/girl Twin 8 year olds and a 3 year old daughter. Don’t forget to tell your sibling or soul sibling you love them today! 😋Shoutout to all my cousins!

Perfume is the most intense form of memory. Jean Paul Guerlain One of my first memories of my grandmother was the scent of her perfume, her signature scent. I believe everyone should have one. I remember exactly where she would place it on her dresser, I remember the places she would spray it on her body and it was always at the end of her makeup application, right before she put on her jacket or sweater to leave the house. As a little girl, I would just sit on her bed watching her apply her makeup and end it with her fragrance. To this day, I would walk into a Sephora, search for that perfume and spray it on a piece of paper and slip it in my purse just to take me back and feel her in my presence again. My grandmother passed away many years ago, but every time I smell Lancôme’s Tresor, I am taken back to the time I was 6 years old watching her carefully put on her red lipstick and reach for her perfume bottle on her dresser. Such an innocent and happy time. Although not really MY choice in fragrances to wear myself, I still intend to purchase this bottle to have on my dresser to remind me of that sweet, strong, sophisticated , beautiful lady that was once my grandmother. ❤️ 🔸Lancôme Tresor ✨ Notes: apricot blossom, rose, lilac, iris, peach, amber, sandalwood, musk, vanilla ✨ Style: lovely, romantic, elegant #nationalfragranceday #fragranceday #perfume #guerlain #lancome #lancometresor #guerlainlover #sephora #fragrance #wearyourstory #chunkypineapplemama

Happy 1️⃣st Day of Spring! 🌺 I honestly don’t know how or why I started this tradition, but my earliest memory of me actually doing #springcleaning was when I was about 8 years old! Every time Spring came around, I knew it was time to clean, donate, trash, and move things around. 🤷🏽‍♀️I remember looking at my calendar ( yes I was obsessed with scheduling and planners) and circling “the first day of spring” and planning out my annual spring cleaning. I wish I knew where it all started... Probably something I saw on #fullhouse or #whostheboss ... 🤔 Anyway, I’m obsessed with cleanliness, organizing, and planning.... 😜 So let’s see what this Spring will have in store for us! 🍍 #hellospring #spring #springhassprung #pineapple #springcleaning #springorganizing #firstdayofspring #sprinplanning #80sbaby #chunkypineapplemama

🌺So excited to share with you my recent @bayabelleboutique purchase! ✨Fun Fact: I went twice within 2 hours cause of the hand cream from @capribluecandles 🤦🏽‍♀️ I tried it on at the boutique , went to Target and kept getting compliments (from my smell) 😆 Soooo... naturally it was meant to be so I had to go back and make it official. 💙 THEN! I came across @among.the.flowers #lavender body salt scrub and THAT smelled like heaven so of course that made its way into my shopping basket. AND THEN I finally got my hands on @letsputabirdonit #soycandle and YOU GUYS! The scent is #whitepineapple !! 🍍😍 Also, I’ve been looking for a new spring fragrance, so I decided to try @letsputabirdonit non toxic roll on perfume in #mermaid 🧜🏽‍♀️ I’m excited to give these treasures a try.

🍎This is my treasured Menu board I bought from Michael’s and was able to use my 40% off coupon about a month or so ago ✨... I ❤️ it as it helps me stay on track and it gives my kids and I something to look forward to and reminds us to not eat out! 😏 #momtruth : 1) I don’t always stick to my menu. 2) This pic was taken today! So that means I skipped a couple weeks (hey, I had a rough 2 weeks) 🤷🏽‍♀️ 3) Sometimes, I’m too tired to cook and I opt for frozen pizza or cereal or even the drive thru 😱! 4) Yes, I know my ‘N’ looks like an ‘H’ 🤦🏽‍♀️ Crazy stuff I know! 😬 But hey, I’m not perfect, no one is... So don’t be so hard on yourself if this is the second time this week you gave your kids cereal for dinner or God forbid bought fast food! 🍔🍟Bottom line, you love your kids enough to even worry about stuff like that. We’re all in this together! 💪🏽👊🏽 Build each other up instead of tearing each other down. Being a parent is NOT easy but loving our kids is what we do best. I promise you they will not be mad that they had cereal for dinner ! 😆⭐️ #menu #menuboard #dinnermenu #chalkboard #lettering #chalkboardmenu #weeklymenu #mealplan #michaelsfinds #filipinokitchen #internationalkitchen #mykitchen #momof3 #organization #lifestyle #instablog #chunkypineapplemama #wordsofencouragement #parenting

✨July 12, 2018✨I will be married to the love of my life for 10 years! That’s crazy to even think about. It’s been a roller coaster of emotions and adventures but I honestly can’t imagine sharing this world without my guy. Since it’s #jewelday , I wanted to share my favorite piece of jewelry... my wedding and engagement rings. Not to show off, but to remind myself that life is a journey meant to be shared with the ones you love, laugh,and cry with. 💜 🍍Details: This cute dish is from @marshalls and it was only $2.99!!! 😱 The planner is also from @marshalls for $6.99 😬 #jewelday #nationaljewelday #diamonds #weddingring #jewelry #engagementring #ringdish #marshallsfinds #planner #pineappletings #pineapple #weddinganniversary #chunkypineapplemama
