Making hubby domestic

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!

Hey Irene!
Thanks for your lovely comment. :) Supernatural encounter! I would love to read about it. Thanks for your words of encouragement. Sooo needed. We're in the midst of the worst heater saga that we've ever experienced in Germany. ALL our heaters are not working. Its really getting on my nerves.

Hey Jo.
Thanks for the award! I still need to figure out hwo it works. Don't you colour your Konnyaku jellies? Most people in Singapore colours theirs.

Crystal Mary - Thanks!!! Its Japanese jelly, so the texture and taste are different from the usual jellies. Yeah, we still have 2 more packets. Will make them again soon!
