When I don’t feel like cooking too many dishes (you know, 三菜一汤- 3 dishes and a soup- like in Chinese cooking), I take the easy way out by preparing a one-dish noodle, bee hoon, or rice meal. I try to cut down on stuff like that because there’s usually alot of simple carbs involved, but when I do cook them, I include ingredients like fish, meat, and lots of vegetables. When fixing lunch a few days ago, I chose to add in some Ayam Brand’s canned tuna CHUNKS.
I take a more relaxed attitude towards preparing meals on Saturday because it is the weekend. Not that the family doesn’t need to eat on weekends but for some reason I don’t feel as guilty if I declare, “I’m not cooking today!” to my aunts on Saturdays. Sundays I don’t declare at all. The Saturday that just passed? We had an amazing Tuna Croissant spiced up with airfried potatoes and vegetable yam fritters.
