Everyone wants to spend quality time with their family, which is very important for nurturing relationships with all family members. But it is quite difficult especially for us moms to take out enough time amidst the daily hustle. I have been super busy for the past six months and sometimes I feel so guilty not spending enough time with my boys. So, to make it up with them, I have prepared something extra special. It’s Cloud’s all-time favorite Pinoy-Style Spaghetti.
But before anything else, let me introduce my new-found friend, Purefoods Slow-cooked Spaghetti Sauce w/ the #1 TJ Hotdog. This is perfect for busy moms like myself because it only takes 10 minutes to prepare. Also, it has EVERYTHING you need. From the ground beef, spices, and most importantly, the yumminess was made complete with #1 Tender Juicy Hotdog (also Cloud’s favorite).
There two easy ways to prepare the Purefoods Slow-cooked Spaghetti Sauce w/ the #1 TJ Hotdog – you can heat it in the pan or just pop it in the microwave. See? It is so easy and will not eat too much of your time.
I have prepared this meal without Cloud since he was too busy with his school activities. So, I surprised him instead with his favorite snack when he’s done.
You can check below on how I actually prepared this super yummy meal!
And here’s the finished product!
Look how excited Cloud was. Sarap na sarap siya and he was able to finish everything in just one sitting. Gutom na gutom ang bagets lols.
Our week is incomplete without our Pinoy-Style spaghetti, so the Purefoods Slow-cooked Spaghetti Sauce w/ the #1 TJ Hotdog is definitely one of our must-haves! And the good news is, this is now available in leading supermarkets and online via San Miguel The Mall. So you better check this out! Your kids will also love it. 🙂
Well, apart from preparing a home-cooked specialty meal, below are other useful tips that can help us in spending more time with our loved ones.
Create new traditions in your family
Daily routine at home can be boring for children and even adults. So you can bring a little change sometimes in this routine, to make life more interesting for all. You can delay the dinnertime or bedtime for half an hour, to make a bit free time for some entertainment. You may also introduce a story-telling session every evening before children start with their schoolwork.
Enjoy a movie or game together
You may schedule a time for watching a late-night movie together with your spouse, children, and other family members. You should choose a film that will be enjoyable for your kids and adult members of all ages. You can also play indoor group games, which will help you to have quality time together. You will find several engaging indoor games that all family members can play together and enjoy great fun.
Help children with their schoolwork
Your kids must be facing difficulties sometimes in doing their schoolwork. You can offer them help in their studies, which will boost their self-confidence and strengthen their emotional bonding with you. Though they may have home tutors to help them in studying all subjects, parental guidance provides them better moral support and you also get a chance to become their good friend.
Do household chores together
You may not get enough time to spend with your spouse due to your professional workload. However, you can help him/her in doing regular household chores, like washing dishes, cleaning the table, or ironing clothes. In this way, you will be able to grow the emotional attachment with your life partner. You may also include your children in some simple household jobs, to spend more time all together.
