Cooking for me is a challenge especially that I have three lovelies who wants different kinds of food. I never liked cooking when I was single but now that I am a Mom, I have learned to like it although it is still tough at time because you run out of ideas on what to cook every single day. Cooking the same ,menu everyday could be boring so I tried to find things that my kids and husband would like. Sometimes I look for recipes online but sometimes, I just follow my guts and cook!
One day, I had a left-over giniling (sauteed pork with carrots, green peas, soy sauce, onions and tomatoes). I did not want to serve it again the next day and at the same time, I did not want to throw it away. I looked in the fridge and saw the Chinese cabbage and I thought, maybe if I wrapped it in a cabbage, add some tomato sauce in it and bake it, it would taste good. It turned out really well and my husband loved it!
Then the other day, I made some fried rice and bacon. I wanted some greens in it so I blanched the Chinese cabbage (I love Chinese cabbage more than the regular because it is a bit sweet) with a little bit of salt and butter and wrapped the fried rice and bacon. Ms,. Burrito and hubby liked it but Mr. Burrito did not (he is picky sometimes).
So there you go, my cooking challenge experiments.
