Mini Cheese Burger Manapua (bun)

I like to buy bulk or family size ground beef and divide them up into 1 pound portions, put into ziplog bags, flatten them and put them in the freezer (save freezer space and it actually defrost quicker) as I have mentioned here. When it's time to make spaghetti, I would pull one of the bags out the night before and let it defrost in the fridge. After cooking the ground beef with diced garlic, onions, and black pepper, I would use only half of the cooked ground beef for the spaghetti sauce and save the other half for another dish for another day. This time, the other dish was mini cheeseburger Manapua (buns) for a quick grab and go meal for lil P.

Easy Peanut Butter Sandwich Surprise

As I have mentioned previously here, I became one of the finalists or "Undercover Mothers" for the Ultimate Sneak-Away Contest hosted by Veggie Patch and The Sneaky Chef with my recipe of Easy Peanut Butter Sandwich Surprise. It was quite a surprise for me! For the final round, I needed to turn my recipe submission into a video that will teach other moms how to make it. Talk about pressure!
