It’s been a cold and wet day the whole of today. After 1.5 days of torturous chills, backache and fever, my high fever finally broke last night.
The downside of being a WFHM (or SAHM for that matter) is that work has to CONTINUE whether or not you are fit or ill. Donning on a shawl wrapped round my neck and shoulders, I still had to cook and do school runs in a shivering body. Not to mention waking up at 4:15 a.m. to get the girls ready for school. And hubs is not feeling too well too.
After gulping down many packets of Izumio hydrogen water and chewing on my homegrown Indian borage yesterday, I was right as rain again at night! What would make a WFHM and SAHM happiest? When she’s fit as a fiddle and everyone in the household robust.
As I felt so much better this morning, I did some brisk walking at our condo grounds but had to cut short the exercise when it drizzled. And it has not stopped drizzling since.
As I was in the mood to cook, I whipped up Taiwanese ‘Zha Jiang Mian‘ for lunch for Drama Queen and Cass. As this was totally unplanned, I had to make do with whatever ingredients that I had in the fridge. What’s missing was spring onion.
My Zha Jiang Mian is 80% organic cooked using organic pork, organic Mugi miso, organic seaweed noodles and organic cucumber. What’s not organic are the carrots, cooking oil and garlic.
This dish is very easy and fast to prep. If not for Drama Queen messing up the stove, this would only take 20~25 minutes of prep time. That silly girl put the lid on the pot to boil the noodles and I only realized it much later when the fire was put off by the starchy lava that spewed out from the pot. Hubs had to dismantle the stove to unclog the gas holes and I had to do what I hate the most~ scrubbing the stove, the stove parts and the pot glued with starch!
