A housewife’s tale episode 24

Week 24!! oooohhh *pat on the back*

.

To be honest, I have always been a 3 sec person (a phrase my mom used to say – meaning my interest never last long). I have tried scrap booking,cross stitching, knitting, etc.. it either takes me years to complete a project or it just stays unfinished. That’s why I am so proud of myself for making it this far.

.

I guess I have found something I really really like. I might say slightly obsessive. I still have to find a right balance w the gym, studying and cooking. Working on it!!!

.

Every week seems to fly by, it is unbelievable how fast time flies as we age. =P

.

here’s the menu for week 24!

.

Sunday – Canada was playing USA in the Winter Olympics. Meep invited DK over. We ended up having M n W over as well. I bbq-ed some marinated beef flank, some sweet sour chicken and omelet rolls. M brought over some Jap Chae. Along w some beers. ^__^ awesome nite!!

Tuesday – Made some spinach pasta with ragu bolognese. Recipes here and here. Took a little over 3 hours but very very therapeutic. I find cooking to be therapeutic. I have been feeling a little brain dead coz of all the reading and stuff~

Thursday – was out all day till a little pass 5.30pm. Decided on something simple and takes less than 30 mins so Meep could get food in his belly fast~ and my solution is….

TERIYAKI CHICKEN! this has complex taste but oh so easy! soy sauce, mirin, some sesame oil… all done! over rice and some enoki mushrooms~

For dinner, I had some chicken that I brined the night before. With lemon, garlic and rosemary. This would normally be too much food but turned out to be perfect coz I needed to make snacks on Sunday.

Meep is having ppl over to watch the Winter Olympics Hockey FINALS!! Canada VS USA!!! Chicken salad sandwiches seems to be a good snack for the boys~
