Maybe I am from the old skool. But I think it is reasonably smart that we at least try to cook a decent meal at home for some parts of the week. It doesn’t have to be everyday but maybe a few times a week?
Even when I was working full time, whether single, pregnant, with new baby or with older children, I do try to squeeze in some home cooked meals. Of course, there were phases when we need to cater foods but it was merely a few months here and there.
I had been reading some of the mummy blogs and I notice they do that too. So, I can safely says that getting a meal for the two of us (i.e. if they don’t have children yet) or for the three of us or in my case, the six of us do have a lot of good vibes for the home.
You think lah…the men or the wife (if the men can cook) has toiled in the office, earning a living, travelling home, traffic jams and etc….after a long hard day, it is nice to just be at home, eating than squatting at the nasi campur stall. Well, it does not have to be a daily affair but at least once or twice a week.
So, sayang suami means I do cook a few times a week. Like the above pasta with smoked salmon and huge prawns for the hubby. Of course, on other days, I just need to ‘teh’ a bit and we will be eating out.
Actually, I just want to say that by Saturday, I get to take revenge and ravage the prawns. Meantime, I had to eat the above pasta. Only cottage cheese, sun-dried tomatoes and snow peas. And getting tempted by atm with – You cannot eat the prawns, how about the prawn heads? See the roe? Wuah so solid. Prawn heads not counted as prawn lah. Sure you don’t want? Slurrrrpppp…..
So, how many lucky husbands or wives get to return home to home-cooked meals?
