Life at Age 55 in the United States

Did you know in the United States when you reach 55 years old, you're consider a senior citizen? Carmina realized being one year to become fifty-five years old she can take advantage of the benefits when you're visiting the United States. Certain stores provide a discount when you shop at their store example in Seafood City Supermarket it is 12% from your purchases on every Tuesday. Ross Dress for Less Store every Tuesday is 10% off your purchase. Basically, you can gain a pension from support from the government to apply for low income when you want to start a life living back in the United States if you wanted too without having an income.

The Frazzled Cook

Yann was the one who had recommended Carmina to try The Frazzled Cook. Yann felt if I love to eat and try new food I would enjoy the type of food they cook there. It took years to actually try their food with no time and now we're staying home most of the time. We can have our food be delivered to our location by using the Grab application in the Philippines. I had a family member give me some butter garlic fresh lobster and I didn't have a pasta to go with it for my dinner. I decided to order some pasta from The Frazzled Cook. I saw in their menu that may match with my lobster is the Spicy Shrimp Pasta cooked in grilled garlic and shrimp with olive oil for PHP 325.00.

Spiced Yogurt and Falafel Salad & Honey Soy Salad from Mean Greens

I've been curious to know what Falafel Salad taste like and to find it out is to order it from Mean Greens that is already added on a salad from Spiced Yogurt and Falafel Salad. I felt since I do eat yogurt I won't have a problem with their salad dressing.  Spiced Yogurt and Falafel Salad is an Mediterranean salad with homemade falafel, pickled onions, roasted squash, corn, kidney beans, cucumber, tomato, lettuce and yogurt salad dressing for PHP 170.00 ($3.40). The only item I had opted was the kidney beans from my other experience from other places I had placed and order from a salad from a restaurant. I didn't like the taste of the kidney beans. I felt it was a waste if I would add it to my salad at least someone can eat it for me somewhere else. Honey Soy Salad is sweet honey soy vinaigrette with grilled chicken, mandarin oranges, carrots, pickled onions, nuts and lettuce for PHP 160.00 ($3.20). The only thing a family did was opted the pickled onions. Strawberry Banana
