Sorry I've been sooo quiet. Finally started work for good this week and I needed all my energy to get through each day.
During the time that I was ill, it dawned on me that I needed a back-up cook. I needed someone who could take over the domestic duties when I'm just incapable of getting out of bed. So, who else except the beloved hubby came to mind!!! Hubby usually helps out in the kitchen when he's at home and he's a great help! Don't get me wrong. But I felt that I needed to show him the ropes of basic dishes so that he can be left on his own to whip up meals when I'm unable to "supervise" him.
So far, hubby has learnt how to make:
- Pad Thai
- Bacon pasta
- Konnyaku Jelly (picture above)
Cooking can be fun! He so enjoyed putting the blue colouring into the jelly that I had to stop him before he turned the entire jelly too blue! By the way, Konnyaku Jelly is a really easy dessert that one can make with lychees. You'd just have to get the Konnyaku jelly powder from Asian stores and follow the instructions. We invited the in-laws over for a meal last weekend and decided to have a simple dessert to end off the meal. They loved the jelly too!
