Love Seasoned Pig

Well, my lovely darlings, that was birth number 10! I forgot my camera today so no baby pics. Sorry. 10 births means I am now at charting. Which means I’m 15 away from catching! I bought a birth book last week so I can put all the baby foot prints and names and all that from all the babies I catch! Can you believe that by the end of these two years I’ll have caught over 100? That blows my mind. This is the only midwifery school I’ve ever heard of where you can get so much experience!
I’ve been studying hard these last couple weeks. My next test is on Monday. I’ve also been writing away on my assignment. I’ve also got cooking this week and four shifts over the next four days. Needless to say the next few days will be a little hectic!
I took a much needed break from studying and assignment and birth last weekend. Some of us students rented a boat and went snorkeling! Only in the Philippines can you get world class snorkeling for $10! I was amazed. I’ve been snorkeling in both Mozambique and Jamaica, but this was by far the best I’ve ever seen! There are so many kinds of fish and coral here! I’m trying to get some pictures from some of the other girls so that I can post them. It was a blast!
I’ve been on cooking this week. On Tuesday, we had pancakes. Then... I found chocolate chips, cocoa powder, and food coloring in the cabinet. You can guess what happened next! It was like Rainbow Bright invaded our kitchen! I made cinnimmon syrup and seasoned the bacon myself! I’m pretty proud of my bacon. Kayla says it was seasoned with death. But she doesn’t eat pork. If she did, she’d have believed me when I told her it was seasoned with love. Here’s my recipe for those of you who like love seasoned pig.

Can't you feel the love?

Love Seasoned Pig:
Unseasoned bacon
1 table spoon of salt
1/4 cup of pepper
2 table spoons of sugar
1/4 cup of rosemary
Rub and press the spices into the bacon. Cook to taste. I like my bacon crispy.
The measurements are really just a guesstimate because I just throw handfuls or so of spices at whatever I am cooking. Everything I’ve cooked so far has come out edible so I must be doing something right!

One of my dear friends back home is releasing a CD this weekend! Those of you in the Charlotte area should go to the release and support him and his music! Those of you not in the Charlotte area should buy his CD on itunes this Saturday! Here is the FaceBook page for the release:
For itunes look for A Chance For Heros by This Weakness Being Mine. You can’t miss it. The cover art is pretty great. I’ve gotta find out who the artist is! And that, my friends, is my shameless promotion for the day. Buy it, listen to it, love it. Do it now. You know you want to.
And now: Various pictures of my house and Davao City to make up for the lack of babies!
