Today’s lunch for Drama Queen and Cass was takeout Mee Siam from our favorite cafe. Cass was super hungry today. When she alighted from the school van, she grumbled “mum, I am SO hungry. My stomach is SO pain and growling. I am going to die from hunger!” The moment she got into the house, she rummaged through the fridge for lunch. She saw the packet of Mee Siam in the fridge, took it out and devoured it like a feral dog. She was supposed to share the packet of Mee Siam with me but she scoffed it down within minutes, still in her dirty school uniform, stinky socks and with ruffled messy hair all over.
After she was done with her packet of Mee Siam, Cass said that she was still very, very hungry! OMG, what’s with her appetite?! She must be going through a growth spurt now. “But you have already eaten my share of Mee Siam. There is nothing else to eat. Do you want cheese on toast?” I asked her. There was a twinkle in her eyes. That’s her favorite, why not!
So I hurriedly popped a slice of wholemeal cranberry bread into the toaster, along with a slice of cheddar cheese and sliced tomatoes. This open toast is very much in the same mold as pizza bread. The bread is crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. The soft and chewy melted cheddar cheese is SWOON! Something as simple as a slice of crispy toast with hot tomatoes and chewy cheddar can really warm the cockles of this little girl’s heart 💓💓
