Cheez Whiz Tuna Pasta for the Mom who Tries!

One of the things that I’m insecure of is that I’m not a homemaker. You know how it is in movies when they picture the mom to be the “super mom”. She’s always presented as the one who has the perfect home, the one who is amazing at cooking, the one who knits clothes for her children and one who does all the household chores. I am not any of those. My house is a mess, since I barely could find the time to fix it. I don’t know how to cook. I am not creative. I kid my friends that when God distributed creativity, I think I was on lunch break. I also have a helper who helps me do household chores.

I do try to be the best mom that I could be. Believe me, I do try! Just last week, I tried creating something for my friends who were coming over for dinner. It was Tuna Pasta topped with Cheez Whiz. It’s really simple even for someone who doesn’t cook.

Recipe

I had nine guests so just adjust the quantity. Here are the ingredients that you need:
1 pack of pasta
4 cans of tuna flakes in oil (keep a little bit of the oil but drain the rest of it)
2 whole chopped onions
3 pieces red bell pepper
Cherry tomatoes
1 – 2 bottles of Cheez Whiz Original

How did I make it? Here are the simple steps in creating this dish:
1) Cook the pasta
2) Saute the tuna, onions, bell pepper and tomatoes in a pan.
3) Pour the sauce on top of the pasta
4) While the sauce is still hot, pour the Cheez Whiz and it will automatically melt

Cheez Whiz Recipe

Voila! You have a great dish to serve to your friends. Even my little daughter loved it and asked for seconds. This dish is especially dedicated to the busy mom and to the mom who tries to be the best mom that she could be.\

Hope you like it! Cheers and Merry Christmas!

Learning How to Make Bento Boxes using Cheez Whiz

I recently got the chance to attend a Bento Making Class conducted by the Bento Mommas and which was sponsored by Cheez Whiz. I recently developed this love for making bento boxes. I love it because it brings out my creative side, plus, you don’t have to cook anything (I can just put together a Cheez Whiz sandwich all the time) and if you do, you can have someone cook it for you and you just need to creatively combine all the ingredients together. I really don’t know how to cook, but I promise that I will find the time when my daughter’s a bit older and if I really find the need to learn.

I love bento making because I get to use all of these colourful materials and ingredients. For the class, we had to make two bento boxes. One bento was a snack bento box, while the other one was a rice bento box for lunch. We started with creating the snack bento box with Cheez Whiz as the star.

We had to create our very own Snowman! It was the perfect theme for the Holidays. First off, we had to cut four pieces of circles from the white Gardenia bread that we were given. These were the materials / ingredients that we were going to use for the body of the snowman. Next, we had to spread the new variant of Cheez Whiz, which was the Cheez Whiz Milky Delight flavour. It’s the perfect blend of Sweet Milk and Mild Cheese. I love its sweet taste!

After creating the two mini circle sandwiches, we had to place them inside the container to create the snowman. After which, we had to decorate it with raisins, sour candy and chocolate. Check out my little unfinished snowman. The pieces were “glued” to the bread using Cheez Whiz.

The next bento box that we made was a rice bento box. I loved this since we made our own Rudolf the Red-nosed Reindeer! First of all, what we did was we got a Glad sandwich bag and scooped one cup into the bag. We formed the head of Rudolf and we placed in inside the container. We had to check on the size of the scoop of the rice by closing the container. We had to make sure that we had enough room to still place the nose, eyes, etc. without destroying the head.

Next we cut a heart using the bread and placed it at the middle of the rice, facing downwards. For the eyes, we used sliced cheese and nori and for the nose, we used tomatoes. For the antlers, we used pretzels. To stick all of these in place, we had to use Cheez Whiz Milky Delight again as our glue.

Again, for the bento box to keep its form, we need to fill up the box so the components won’t move. We placed chicken on the side and green apple again on the other end. We used broccoli to fill up the other parts. As you can see, the box is a balanced meal with food from the grow, glow and go food groups! This is my finished product.

My Bento Box Creation with Cheez Whiz (Part 1)

>When babies grow and become toddlers, they grow longer and more stable legs (Duh!). Why is this the intro statement? It’s because for the past few days, my daughter has become the source of my weight loss. I keep running after her. She has been pretty difficult to deal with lately, since all she wants to do is explore and play. Some moms tell me “Oh, it will get worse!” I remember the time my sister-in-law, Manilamommy.com, used to chase Kuya (my nephew) around the house when it was feeding time. Oh, wait! She still does. I fear for the day when I have to chase my daughter around the house, too, when it’s meal time. Good thing, she still eats a lot. But to give me a head start, I think I will already practice making creative bento boxes and merienda for her using Cheez Whiz!

I loved and still love Cheez Whiz! Amazing that Cheez Whiz has been in the market for 50 years creating delicious moments of joy for both moms and kids. It has always been the number one cheese spread brand for me. So in creating my Halloween Bento Box (practice makes perfect!), I will use Cheez Whiz, so even if the design’s bad, I’ll have the taste to redeem me!

Cheeze Whiz Bento Creation 7

The ingredients that you need for this Bento Box that I made are the following:
– Lettuce
– Bread
– 1 piece of Tomato
– Nori wrapper
– 1 Hard boiled egg
– Cutting board
– A Sharp Knife
– A Container
– And of course, your Cheez Whiz that’s now creamier! Yey!

So for my first bento box, I will create a mummy inside a sarcophagus with bats flying all over! The first thing that you need to do is to line the container with lettuce. My container is quite deep so I had to place a lot of lettuce. Plus, this will be your side salad.

Next, take the edge from the bread loaf. It’s normally in a beige-y or brownish color. Cut little strips. Use these strips to line them and turn them into the sarcophagus.

Next, use the cover of the Cheez Whiz Bottle and cut out the head for your mummy. Do this for two pieces of bread.

Next, spread Cheez Whiz on the top portion of that one piece of bread that you cut off. Cover it after with the other piece to make a mini-circular sandwich.

Next, create the body by cutting off again a portion of the bread to make the triangular shape (with the top off for the neck area) as seen in the picture below. Again, spread Cheez Whiz in between the pieces of bread that you cut off.

Next, cut the egg whites of the hard boiled egg into strips and line it all over on top of the bread. Take the nori wrapper and cut a small rectangular shape for the eyes. Next, take two small pieces of the egg whites and place it on top of the nori wrapper to turn it into the eyes of your mummy.

Next, cut the nori wrapper and create two bats (although my bats have huge heads! Haha!). Next, get the piece of tomato and this will be your pumpkin. Create eyes and a mouth using the nori wrapper.

Tada! This is my bento box. I’m not a creative mom and this is only the second time that I tried to create my own bento box. I’m so happy though because when I showed my daughter the box, she couldn’t stop pointing at the mummy and laughing, so I’m happy. She also ate the head already, so now, I have a headless mummy.

At first, I didn’t believe that a creative merienda’s can actually entice children to eat them, but since my baby took a bite at the head immediately, then I guess it really helps! Cheez Whiz, which is perfect for merienda, made my bento box even yummier, especially now with it’s new formulation!
