How To Cook Classic Pinoy Style Spaghetti using Purefoods Slow Cooked Spaghetti Sauce with #1 TJ Hotdog In Just Ten Minutes. [ Bonus Homeschooling Tip]

People often ask me, how do you do it, Ley?

To be honest, most of the times, I don’t know how I survived with no helper. I have 3 kids. Addy is in online distance learning. Arriana is homeschooling with CFA Homeschool and Amanda is still exclusively, direct breastfeeding. I also have two part time work outside blogging. Yes! I am a full time, work at home mom. It is not always bed of roses. I also have days wherein I feel tired and that is totally normal and okay. I try to manage my time by prioritizing what is urgent and important. I also involved everyone in the family in our household chores. One constant challenge is cooking. Of course, we always want to make sure that our family eats healthy and well balanced meal that they like.

Growing up, I always enjoy my Lola’s Pinoy style spaghetti with lots of tender Juicy Hotdog. This has always been part of our family tradition; birthdays, Christmas, anniversaries. At home, spaghetti is part of our weekly meal plan because my kids love it may it be for breakfast, lunch, dinner or snack but because of my hectic schedule it is either I cook in big batches so we can just reheat it instantly but this takes up so much refrigerator space or cook spaghetti instantly and misses some ingredients like hotdogs or meat.

Addy and Arriana started to learn how to cook simple dishes that they love so they can prepare it even if mommy is busy. Spaghetti is next in our list then I discover this #TenderJuicyfied Purefoods Slow-Cooked Spaghetti Sauce with the #1 TJ Hotdog. Since Addy wants to know how to cook spaghetti sauce Filipino style, then this is the perfect entry level.
