“What’s for lunch today?” This is the question that the mil and I would ask each other every morning. Whenever we shrug our shoulders implying a non-verbal “no to outside food”, she would be quick to suggest home cooked food. Then she would stride to the kitchen to defrost meat and hurriedly whip up a few simple yet most tasteful dishes. Thank goodness she finds so much pleasure cooking unlike me, who finds cooking a chore 😖
This is our lunch today, which the mil efficiently whipped up in under an hour:
Sauteed pork strips with homegrown basil and jar choy (preserved vegetable) and sauteed leek flowers with fish cakes. Cass’ bowl of rice has so much dishes that the rice is hardly visible. Her appetite is always voracious and it’s such a joy to see her nosh down her food. She washed down her lunch with a packet of Izumio 👍
Fruit of the day for today is papaya and guava. She eats her fruits before the main meal.
What do you usually have for lunch? Home cooked or easy way out takeout?
