Chunky Chicken Caldereta Recipe in less than 20 minutes

Sunday is family day! No work, no online classes. It's been a stressful past 2 weeks since the kid's distance learning started. I haven't cooked a decent meal, we mostly order food or we cook instant food. So today, I cooked something special for lunch (brunch for me hehe).



I cooked Chunky Chicken Caldereta. It's my 2nd-time ko cook Caldereta, first one was beef. Oh wait, I think I cooked Beef Caldereta twice already. I am sure I took photos but I don't know where they are now so I haven't blogged about it yet. I'll probably cook again soon. So it's the first time I used Chicken meat for Caldereta and kung gaano katagal lutuin yung beef caldereta, with this, it only took me less than 20 minutes. Sharing with you my secret- I used Mama Sita’s Caldereta Mix. I don't have all the ingredients on hand so, Mama Sita's Mix was a lifesaver.

Say Yes to yourself!


I remember having this conversation with my kids, where we talked about life, and being true to oneself. My kids are still very young, but they are very curious and asks a lot of questions. So I make time to sit down with them and have a heart to heart talk about things that confuse them or any topic that interests them.

That conversation was because of Brianna being shy. She's shy, whenever there are other people around, she's shy at school and doesn't even talk to her classmates and teachers. She even missed a lot of opportunities at school because of that. But, I am glad that she is slowly getting out of her comfort zone. Just last school year, she joined the Spelling bee and won first place. Woohoo! This situation is not new to me. Growing up, I've always been shy as well. (Now you know where Brianna got it. Haha!) And, because of that, I've let a lot of opportunities and good things pass by.

I'm sure that a lot of people could relate to it. At some point in your life, you've said "no" to things, when in fact, what you wanted to say was, "yes." There are different reasons as to why this happens, probably insecurity, fear and lack self-confidence. It could also be because some people or situations are holding you back. I know a lot of people who care too much about others, thus setting aside their needs. 

Every time you give in to these things, you say "no" not just to opportunities or possible good things, but you are also saying "no" to life. There's no wonder why many people are not genuinely happy.

Self Care: Olay BodyScience Body Wash Review



Self-care. I don't know how many times I've talked about it ever since the pandemic began. What I know is, it's one of the most important things we can do for ourselves now more than ever. We are still fighting a battle against coronavirus, more people are still getting infected, and every day we are faced with worry not just for ourselves or our family but for the whole nation. 

As I've mentioned in some of my posts, self-care could be in any form. It could be mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual. In a nutshell, it's all about being kind to your self.
