Feed Week

Days since my last post: 7

What's cooking, Shneep-ers? The blog layout isn't quite ready but my friend and I are working hard in making it work, so bear with the changes for a bit. So touched that he's helping me even through the nights so dinner for him beckons!

But while that's happening, let's talk about my newest enjoyment: Cooking. What a word to use for someone who hardly steps into the kitchen! Okay to be fair, it probably isn't really cooking but just boiling food and mixing it around before packing up and leaving it in the fridge to take to work the next day. Yes, I have started bringing food to work because it saves me tons of money, lots of time and I no longer have to deal with the smell of sweat from going out during lunch time!

Monday

In the Tupperware sits Japanese noodles with boiled broccoli, potatoes, and carrots drenched with Japanese roasted sesame sauce. While I underestimated the need for sauce that day, I realized that the Japanese noodles tasted amazing when cold. The brand here are Topvalu from Japan and Kewpie for the sauce, while the veges were sought from the morning market my mum visits. They're apparently potatoes from New Zealand and Australian broccoli and carrots. It's an international dish, alright?

Tuesday

In the tub for the day is Japanese noodles with carrot strips and Japanese roasted sesame sauce. It's almost like a cycle because I tend to prepare everything on the same day then throw it into the fridge before taking it out and just eating it for lunch. Some of you may say that this really isn't "cooking" anymore but to me, having to stand by the stove is cooking. Don't judge me.

Wednesday

In my RM 2.99 Mason jar (Totally necessary to state how freaking cheap Mason jars can be!) sits boiled potatoes with home made mayonnaise and egg white strips. Granted, I did not make this. No, I merely mixed it to perfection because the true brain child of this was my brother who was back home for 2 days. That night however, I learned how to make mayonnaise from scratch. It was quite an interesting but extremely tiring process. The result was amazing but I probably wouldn't make this as much unless I have the cravings for the ultimate gourmet lunch experience again.

Colours galore!

Thursday

In my Tupperware are boiled potatoes, blanched broccoli, cherry tomatoes, and chopped carrot chunks. My brother was still home, improvising the mayonnaise he made from the night before. To make it taste even better and thicker, he added grated cheese and balsamic vinegar so this salad tasted much more different from the one in the day before. Not too shabby for a meal made a night before, right?
 At least I tried

I guess by the end of the day, cooking from home and preparing food the night before isn't really as difficult as I thought it would have been. Yes, we would have to buy tons of ingredients and think of what's good...or not but the result for an every day meal is really cool. In fact, I am sort of getting the hang of this quirky food preparation process! So here's to another week ahead with tons of work and good food for the middle of the day.

Feed week

In my two containers from Daiso (So amazing, it separates the food!) are spiral pasta drenched in tomato sauce paired with boiled broccoli and carrot thins. Yes, this will be for 2 days because it seems silly to only cook for a single day at a go. Would I ever get sick of this? Maybe. But I think 2 days should be fine. If you've got better cooking ideas for someone who has zero cooking knowledge and limited equipments, do leave me comments. And recipes. It's best if it's stuff that requires little to no need for immediate preparation because I usually cook the food a night before. 

Okay bye.
