Double Decker Tours - Washington, DC. (Hop On, Hop Off)

 I really didn't expect that it will be that humid in DC. Geez! Because usually in the movies that I watched its always super cold and I didn't expect their summer to be like Manila. I thought its like San Diego ... sunny but cold breeze.      

Anyway, we tried the hop on, hop off tours which will take you to different tourist spots.  The ticket that we bought is valid for one day and it will take us on four routes - THE GRAND TOUR, ARLINGTON TOUR, the UPTOWN TOUR (key hotels) and NIGHT TOUR Your ticket is valid for one day. In our case we started our tour late afternoon which means we can still continue our tour the next day. The bus has specific bus stop where you can get off and ride again. The waiting time is every 5minutes but if weekends 15minutes because most of the time the bus is full. It will be standing ovation.

My favorite stops .... next blog :> xoxo

Brown Sugar Meatloaf


One day, I really I don't know what to do with all my ground beefs in my fridge. Let's just say I ran out of idea whatelse to do aside from meatballs, hamburgers, taco dip, spaghetti meat sauce and etc. You know what I mean?

Anyway, I decided to google simple recipe for ground beef and I found a recipe from and I read great reviews about the recipe she posted; saw the ingredients and I thought I'll give it a try since hubby really loves meatloaf.

As you know, that was my first time to cook meatloaf and my husband who rarely gives compliments said he really loved it!!!

By the way, I made some changes to the recipe. Here's my twisted recipe:-

  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup ketchup *Instead of ketchup I use Bull's eye orginal barbecue
  • 1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 small onion, chopped *I use my NINJA FOOD PROCESSOR instead for thin slices
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger (my meatloaf don't have this one. Because I don't have ginger hehehe)
  • 3/4 cup finely crushed saltine cracker crumbs -*I use Zesta Saltline Cracker & crushed it using my NINJA FOOD PROCESSOR / BLENDER.
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 5x9 inch loaf pan.
  2. Press the brown sugar in the bottom of the prepared loaf pan and spread the ketchup over the sugar. * Instead I put the sugar on top of my meatloaf then cover it with barbecue sauce. So I proceed first to #3.
  3. In a mixing bowl, mix thoroughly all remaining ingredients and shape into a loaf.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour or until juices are clear.
