Honey baked ham with pineapple recipe

I use to baked slices of ham but this time I baked a 7.32 lb ham. I was scared at first to bake because I haven't baked a ham this big. I was glad though because the outcome was really tasteful and good. Actually my dad-in-law and my hubby was impressed. YAY Me!!! hehehe. My dad-in-law said that "This is what hams suppose to taste. I haven't tasted good ham since I was a kid" OMG! I couldn't believe he said that and guess what? Hubby ate ALOT of ham and he said that it was really good. YAY ME AGAIN!!! lol! So guys, here is the recipe I used.

Wheelchair, the adaptive equipment

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of NMEDA. All opinions are 100% mine.

Every time I go with hubby to work for a visit, I always meet different residents in the rehabilitation. Some residents can walk, some can barely walk and some are in wheelchairs. Some of them are friendly and some are not. Some can talk good and some can only say few words. Some can feed themselves and some needs assistance in eating. No matter what their conditions are, I am glad that there are medical people who help them.

I also noticed that CNAs (Certified Nursing Assistant) are the one who do the hardest part of taking care of them. I am talking about feeding, giving a bath, fixing their bed and walking them. I told my husband that I am a CNA graduate in the Philippines and although I never practiced being a CNA, I think I could not do the responsibilities of being a CNA. I personally have seen how hard they work and you need to have lots of strength to do their job and I don't think I can handle their job.

My husband is a nurse and he told me that he is thankful to the person who invented wheelchair because it makes disabled person to wheel around and it makes the caregiver's job more easier. It is not good and wise to just simply order or buy wheelchair online. The patient or the disabled person need to be seen so they could measure and design the appropriate wheelchair that will fit the patient.

NMEDA is an non-profit association that promotes safe driving and equipment for disabled people. They have dealers and Quality Assurance Program (QAP) dealers. NMEDA dealers are the one who sells handicap vans for disabled people while on the other hand, QAP is the only nationally accreditation program for the Adaptive Mobility Equipment Industry. So if you are looking for a perfect wheelchair, go to NMEDA and enter your zip code to see the qualified dealer near you.

Pink Lemonade

I haven't updated my blog for awhile because my son was in the hopsital for 2 days due to Gastrointestinal. When we got home from the hospital I did lots of chores and that included tons of dirty laundry. My son still has cough and cold and I am hoping that he will feel better soon. Anyway, I think I figured out already on why is it my tummy feels weird that I always want to throw up. And that is because of the soda. I felt like my belly was acidic so I decided to totally stopped drinking soda and there here I am now! No more belly pain. I switched into drinking water and pink lemonade now and pink lemonade is my latest fave hehe.

Sinigang na Baboy

I so love Sinigang na baboy and it one of my cravings. I decided to have the courage to cook it last three days ago because I so miss eating it. I always hear to people that it is not hard to cook sinigang but I just didn't had the courage to cook it til I was really craving for it lol! Hubby and I went to the store and bought some ingredients and I cooked it right away. I was happy with the result of the taste and the truth is, I had been eating it for 3 consecutive days already lol! Oh my! I will cook Sinigang again for sure :)
