Since I am no longer using the food delivery service (although I still have 14 point something Prime points so I’ll need to figure that out at some point), I’ve been cooking even more lately. However it does not seem to have reduced my writing productivity. Rather it’s been energizing and inspiring me so I must be doing something right. Anyway, it’s the fasting month which is always rough for me. No matter how many times I tell people I can’t fast because of very valid health reasons, someone or other has to be a nosy jerk. I basically do my best to avoid people all month because of this.
I’m going to keep doing this visual series to keep me motivated and because it’s nice to have a visual record of these things.
Beef Stroganoff with Noodles, parboiled vegetables, nectarine, decaf cappuccino
(A working lunch.)
Chicken in Cream Sauce with peas over potato mash, carrots and tomatoes
(not in picture: Cream of carrot soup seasoned with italian parsley and cumin)
Herb-Crusted Salmon with Lemon Cream Sauce on Mashed Potatoes
(Hey, I had to get my fix for the week since I’m no longer ordering! I had a lot of fun making this and will definitely make again. Soon.)
Ayam Masak Lemak Cili Api, Kacang Buncis Goreng w/ beef and oyster sauce, Sambal Belachan
(So damned delicious. I put daun kunyit and daun pandan in my masak lemak. Plus, calamansi lime juice, calamansi lime peel and cherry tomatoes in my sambal belachan. Best sambal belachan I made, ever. I used some of it to make my kuah rojak yesterday)
Portobello Bun Burger
(burger patty made from scratch w/ onion, parsley, paprika and worcestershire sauce, a pre-workout breakfast)
Creamy Scrambled Eggs, Caramelized red onion, portobello mushrooms, Adventist Bakery 7-Grain Bread
