I love chicken! 🙂 I’m always looking for delicious chicken to bring home, and what I normally buy is whole roasted chicken that I ask them to chop. I take what I can eat for my meal then keep the rest inside the fridge to eat for the next meal. I can tell you where the best roasted chicken are, but then recently, I realised that I can’t assure my family that the cooked chicken that I purchase is fresh. So being the main decision maker and the “queen” of the household, I decided to just buy raw chicken and just cook it at home.

I buy Magnolia chicken, because the chicken that I buy from them is always fresh. The Magnolia chicken are raised in stress free environments, with Omega 3, free from antibiotic residue, and free from hormones and steroids. I also love that Magnolia has spearheaded a monumental campaign empowering Mom’s all over to choose only the best, and freshest, when it comes to serving the family – because when you have the power to choose, why settle for anything less than the best? From now on, I am choosing what’s best for y family!

Like the queens of Philippine pageant history and the country’s pride – Gloria Diaz, Miss Universe 69’, Margie Moran, Miss Universe ’73, and, Pia Wurtzbach, Miss Universe 15’, we can all choose what’s best for our families.

Since I love roasted chicken, I’m sharing the best marinades that I have seen on the internet:

Here it is! Father’s day is fast approaching and I’m sure there a lot of wives and moms who are still thinking of what to give their husbands as a Father’s day gift. Well, fear not, for I have done all the canvassing myself, and I did it half a day. As you all may know, I am not feeling too good and yesterday, the doctors have told me that I have upper and lower respiratory track infection. Woohooo! Lucky me, right. Aside from playing Everwing, I just lie in bed, because once I start working and blogging, in just a few minutes, I’m tired again, and my abs (uhuh!) hurt from coughing. So, anyway, lucky for me, I got to do this canvassing and shopping last week.

I did all of my canvassing and shopping at S&R Membership Club. So here are my top picks for dad:

Daddy needs to look most handsome always. I think that both men and women need to groom themselves and look their best even if they’re married. For daddy, I found this WAHL Home Products Home Pro. This is a complete haircutting and touch-up kit. This set is only at Php 1499 (marked down from Php 2599.00).

Another product hat I saw is this item from Philips. If your man requires a close shaved hair style, they can use this shaver. This Philips Multi-groom & battery operated shaver is only at Php 2498.

The third item on my list is the On Time Wall Clock. This comes in different colors. It’s only at Php 899.95. This will be the perfect gift for the lolos, too!

The next two items are for those dad who always have their friend over at home. To inject sophistication to the parties that we have at home and to make our guests feel special, I think this Five Piece Decanter Set from Sommelier or the Circleware Barware Beer Set (from Php 899.95 now Php 699.95) will be the perfect choices. Both will appreciated and used by your man!

Speaking of parties, what are parties without alcohol! Let me give you some of the best brands with amazing deals that I have seen at S&R Membership Club:

These are the brands that you can get for Dad! Now going back to my list. Next up is this really affordable and durable Men’s Chino Pant from Kirkland. It’s now at Php 899 from Php 1299. S&R Membership club also have these Bridgeport PJ Set!

Next item in my Father’s Day Gift list is this Hampton Forge Magnetic Knife Strip. My husband took cooking classes for knife skills before at Enderun. Ever since that time, he always wanted to have a magnetic knife strip to hold the knives in the kitchen. Check this out! It’s only Php 349.95 from Php 449.95.

The next items in my list for Father’s day gift choices are these towels made especially for dad. These cotton towels are at Php 399 each!

And last but not the least amongst all of these choices, I have dad’s bath favorites! Both the Dial Soothing Care Body Wash (Php 299.95) and the Axe White Label Forest Body Wash (Php 499.95) is at Buy One Take One!

So these are my top picks for Father’s day. Do check out S&R Membership Club and see what you’re top picks are. Share them with us using #LoveSnR and #SnREveryday.

But wait, before you go, I’d like to share with you my food pick for this month. I love Chicken, and I think my friends and family know that. So imagine me going crazy when I saw these!

These chicken variants are the bomb! Naturally, upon seeing this, I did what any sane person would do.

I got all of the flavors. Now, that I am at home and resting, I got to finish one whole pack of the Hot n’ Spicy variant. Yes, I finished it by myself.

What I loved about it is that the chicken was still so fresh. It wasn’t bloody at all when cooked. The meat was very soft and juicy. What I did was I bought ranch dressing and used it as sauce for this variant. I’ll share with you soon what my favorite will be after I go through all of the variants. Haha! But honestly, this was a good purchase in my opinion.

So that’t is for today! I hope you liked all of my suggestions for your Father’s day gift and for the chicken (haha!). Talk to you soon!

 

 

 

Sharing with you this interview with Jaycee Recto of BagWings! 🙂

Hey, I’m Jaycee Recto. I am the father of 5 kids. I am a natural designer on both traditional and digital medium. I graduated at Far Eastern University for free by being an Athlete. I love Football but being 36, my body is disagreeing with my brain.

I never thought I’m gonna cook. Bagwings is a food concept that we made based on another thing that Filipinos love to do, and that is drinking. We started with a menu that was built to be the ultimate “pulutan” selection, but then something happened, we noticed that people were ordering rice from the next stall after ordering Bagwings , so, we decided to make it a full-on rice meal concept. Our signature Bagwings dish is a mixture of roasted pork belly, chilled then deep-fried to perfection to attain that Northern and Southern fusion (Ilocos bagnet + Cebu Lechon) paired with fried chicken wings in various flavors glazed with our famous Bagwings chili oil.
