Cabbage Roll

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.
