Aside from our new dinnerware
set, we don’t have anything new in our kitchen that could inspire me to at least try to cook. But odd, I did cooked two meals this week! And not to count the Graham Cake I did as requested by hubby. Yay for me right?! In my six years of marriage, hubby is the one who’s always in charge of cooking. When he’s not around, my kids will expect fried dish on our table (that’s the only thing I could do with chicken, pork or fish) .
So what prompted me to work on my cooking skills? I guess I got disappointed with the recent long weekend that we had. I asked hubby to prepare meals other than fried dish since he’s off from work. But he didn’t. He said he was lazy to cook so he just asked me to fry whatever inside the fridge (that was Sunday). Come Monday and instead of heading to my request he yanked us all to eat outside.
So I thought, perhaps now is the time that I should really learn how to cook (after six years of marriage ugh! Shame on me!) And for my first attempt, I tried to cook “nilagang manok”. I was nervous when I had my kids seated on their chair, waiting for their meals. My son loves this dish so I asked him first how did it taste. He said it’s delicious and I believe him because after his first cup of rice he asked for the second and third one. My daughter, Erin, ate a lot too that day while my youngest loves the cabbage I put in it. It was a success!
Second attempt was a dish with no name lol! I just cooked the pork meat with tomato sauce and as requested by Cien, cabbage! When hubby tasted it, he said it’s okay and that he’s proud because at least now I’m trying to cook. It’s a nice feeling to learn something new everyday. Now this is just one of the reasons why I think and believe that this year is MY year! (fingers crossed)
