Cooking for myself

shi shang zhi you ma ma hao

you ma di hai zi xiang ge bao

Only mom is the best in this world
A child with a mother is like a piece of treasure

A traditional hymn sung to children

Mom and dad are leaving for China tonight for 2 weeks. Which means I gotta fend for myself at dinner time till they get back. I got my menu planned already:

  • Spaghetti Bolognese
  • Tuna Pasta
  • Lasagne
  • Chicken and Mushroom Marinara
  • Chicken Porridge
  • Fish Porridge
  • Pork Porridge
  • … and your assorted junk food – McD, HJs (BK), KFC, Nandos, Chicken Treat/Red Rooster, Fish-n-Chips

Plus lotsa red wine and beer. Wooo, it’s gonna be soooo healthy. NOT.

You just got a glimpse into how I eat if I have to cook myself. Simple fares using pre-made sauces from the supermarket (the Italian dishes), quick-to-cook (the porridges), and for when I just can’t be arsed (the junk food). It’d be great cos my cousin lives with me and cooking is infinitely more enjoyable when there’s company. 🙂

    Your planned menu sounds good to me. Can’t go wrong with simple + some junk. I get lazy to cook for myself. Luckily my partner loves cooking :-P. When she was away for four days in summer and I was starting out in a new job and working long days I knew I wouldn’t be bothered cooking when I got home, so the first evening she was gone, I ordered $40 worth of chinese home delivery food and that was enough for dinner for all the nights she was gone! Hahaha!

    anna: ahahhah…..yes I’m alternating it so hopefully I won’t get sick of either at the end of the 2 weeks. 😛

    And yes gotta love the junk food – why is everything bad for you tastes so gooooood? 😉

    starry: yeah it is a very common hymn so it won’t be surprising if they used it in an ad.

    Nope – do not like microwave dinners at all. They don’t taste good and they are actually quite expensive for the amount that you get. I rather cook myself.
