Shrimp Chowder

I was always threatened by the daunting task of making a chowder because by the very sound of its name - chowder, sounds fancy to me (maybe hard to cook), only the chefs can do it. But I was mistaken. Boy! It was so easy.


Shrimp, shelled and deveined


Evaporated milk

Chopped garlic

Chopped onion

Water or chicken stock or chicken boullion cubes dissolved in water

Potato, cubed

Cheese, grated

Salt and pepper to taste

Chopped parsley, for garnish


~ Sauté garlic, onion and shrimp in butter. Set aside.

~ In the same pan, boil water or stock. Add potatoes and cheese.

~ Add shrimp and milk. Cook for a few minutes.

~ Season to taste.

~ Garnish with chopped parsley.

Things aren't always what they seem

So you think I’ve given up on blogging and I suck at it, huh?! Well, hell, no!

I’ve been on some emotional battle the past months and it took me awhile to recover. Everyday I cry the same never-ending tears. The pain is overwhelming than the times I’ve been hesitating to draw the line. If I could only inflict that same pain. But then I had to forgive and leave everything to God.

She finally got 8, whew! We gave her an mp4 because I've already memorized all of Miley Cyrus' songs. I hope that one day she will be able to stumble upon this blog ( if she ever get tired of Friendster) and see that I've dedicated an entire month of blog post just for her. Oh! Can't wait for your ninth.
