How to Make Gyoza with Your Kids

One my son's favorite food is Gyoza. When I first made it, it's an instant hit to him. So whenever I cooked Gyoza, he's so excited that he volunteers to help me.

Since we are in community quarantine and most of us are staying at home with our kids, it's great time to let your kids help you in the kitchen. Here's how to make Gyoza.

Start by making the Gyoza fillings. Check out this easy Gyoza recipe.

Let the Gyoza fillings cool before wrapping it. To make the wrapping easier, you can buy this dumpling maker mold. Bought this one at Shopee for less than 50 pesos.

It weighs so light and looks not sturdy. But actually it's a great help. All you have to do is put the dumpling wrapper on top of it then put the fillings like this.

Cooking is just one way of killing boredom during this time when we can't go out. It's also a way to teach your kids home chores and give them a break from gadgets, computer and television. Just make sure everything is safe for them in the kitchen.

Keep safe everyone.

DIY Disinfectant Solution to Fight Coronavirus disease (COVID-19)

Because of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak, there's a run-out of alcohol and hand sanitizer in the market. Although, hand washing is still the best recommendation in helping to stop the spread of coronavirus disease, alcohol and sanitizer are handy first aid that we can bring anywhere we go.

But don't worry because there are lots of alternatives that we can make and use as effective as alcohol. 

Here's a DIY Disinfectation Solution:

For disinfecting areas: *mix 9 glasses of clean water + 1 glass of Zonrox (Clorox).

If there is no liquid Zonrox (Clorox): mix 1 tablespoon of chlorine powder + 2 liters water 

For disinfecting your hands: get 1 glass from the above mixture* then add 9 glasses of water

If there is no liquid Zonrox (Clorox): 1 tablespoon of chlorine powder + 20 liters water

Remember, do not hoard because you are taking other's chance to buy for their own protection. When that happen, you are not helping to stop the spread of coronavirus disease. Not only for alcohol, but also for food supply. The Government assured that there will be enough stock for everyone. So please stop hoarding!

Stay safe everyone!
