My First PinoyScrapbookers KAYA Challenge Entry

A challenge hosted by Gracie, to scrap about a food photo of our favorite dish or recipe.

Creamy Beef-Tofu

A little twist of Beef Steak ala Crema from the recipe booklet of Life's Rich! with Nestle All Purpose Cream. A dish to celebrate my son's birthday!

Journaling:My son asked me to cook beef steak ala crema. But there were about less than 1/2 kilo of beef strip left in the freezer. Since tofu was available inside the fridge, I used it as meat extenders and put some bokchoy leaves to add color. It was surprising that the tofu blended well with the cream sauce. We all loved the come out of this recipe.

Yesterday, I joined in the Scrapbook Challenges: 2nd DT Blog Hop, wherein we have to visit all the DT's blog, leave a comment, to qualify in their monthly drawing.The prize at stake is really awesome.There are 5 questions left by Pamela for us to answer to win again another prize. Through blog hopping you can find the answers to all the questions. It was really fun. All the DT's creations based on the sketch of Pamela contribute a lot of new ideas and inspirations. I was able to finish the blog hopping and able to leave a comment in each blog and hoping to win in one of the drawings. I also created a layout based on the sketch.

Here's my take:
