Since I’m currently being a full-time housewife, I’d like to keep myself busy in the kitchen. Being in the early days of our marriage, our living premises is not yet ideal but we try to make do with what we have. Meaning, I can’t turn into Martha Stewart with her glossy state-of-the-art kitchen yet :P.
Back when I was still living in England, I cooked for survival and mostly for myself. After I got back to Jakarta, I rarely cooked because there’s my mum and Go-jek :))). At first I was confident that I can cook properly for R and I but little that I know, the process is not as smooth. I found myself confused many times and in result, created out of the ordinary dishes for both of us!
By out of the ordinary I mean dishes like…
Chicken, Tofu and Pok Coy Stir-Fry with Garlic Penne
Spinach and Carrot Clear Soup and Beef and Noodle Stir Fry
Hahaha I’m sorry husband! :))))
I’m well aware that I need to learn how to do meal planning and how to strategise my groceries shopping better. At the moment my groceries shopping is still based on whatever I like or whatever that is on promotion haha. Hence, that “strange” meal combination like pictured above!
Apart from that… there are some dishes that I think I master quite well. R has agreed that I make killer pasta and my sausage+egg fried rice is becoming the comfort food for our little family 🙂 Nothing fancy, I know.. but hey, I’m learning as I go along!
So that’s the current update of Christa the housewife. I
try to am enjoying my current role although I have to admit that I miss having a full-time job. Wow! didn’t see it coming, did you? 😉 I can’t remember how many times did I complain when I was still working but here I am… admitting that I miss working. Ah, life 🙂
