I love colorful meals cooked using only naturally colored ingredients. I love colorful clothes too. I just love anything that’s colorful as it makes my life more colorful! Bright colors make me happy. Happy colors seem to do the magic in lifting me up from my doldrums. I have a ‘lucky dress’ which I will only wear when I desperately need luck. It’s a colorful floral short dress. I treasure it and it’s an under RM50 dress from my online store. Each time I wear it, I am lucky. I better not talk too much about it, lest I jinx it!
My two older daughters cringed when they saw the new car that their dad had bought for me 4 years ago ~ in bright pink! They are not so colorful inclined. They love black and other earthy colors. That’s just so opposite me. But when it comes to food, everyone loves colorful meals. And it makes it easier for me to cook. I like adding tomatoes, carrots, traffic light colors bell peppers, beet root, etc to my dishes and I don’t get complaints from the 3 fussy pots.
On one of the days last week, I cooked macaroni beef bolognese for lunch. The girls’ grand aunt had given us a big pot of beef bolognese sauce. All I had to do the next day was to cook some macaroni al dente and mix it with the heated up beef bolognese sauce. The girls loved their lunch to bits.
As there was still a lot of macaroni left, I stir fried it with some colorful vegetables for dinner the next day. I added some curry powder to give it that more-ishness since the girls love curry.
While the girls had macaroni beef bolognese for lunch, I had salad with beef bolognese sauce. My salad composed of organic alfalfa + onion sprouts, baby beet root, organic yacon, Korean kimchi, toasted almond strips and a little preserved Japanese anchovies.
I also made organic mulberry smoothie with mango, apples and orange, with a tinge of raw honey and Korean fruit vinegar. So refreshing and so colorful, iLike!
