After coming back from Europe, I’ve fallen into a routine with rice. I will cook rice once every two weeks, and the rice will last for three meals.
So I’m at it again over the weekend…
I promised myself I would not buy anymore popcorn chickens unless if there’s lemon and herbs flavor. There isn’t when I checked last week, so I was all good…
Until I spotted a package with the words “Thai Fish Cake” printed on it. F**k! There goes another packet of frozen
crap food into my basket and subsequently into my tummy.
The fish cakes come in circle shaped pieces. I cut each piece into three strips and stir fried them with broccoli and a squeeze of lemon juice. The lemon juice move worked rather well, it countered the spiciness of the fish cakes nicely. I’m a genius!
I have a three tier steamer. I used two of it today.
There’s a bunch of greens and a minced pork patty in here. The patty was awesome, I mixed some soy sauce, garlic powder and garlic granules into it. The greens had a pinch of salt, a pinch of pepper and a squeeze of lemon juice over them.
After so many times messing up, you would’ve imagine that I have truly learned my lesson of [never to steam veggies and meat in the same plate] because both these stuff do not use the same amount of time to get cooked. The amount of time to get pork cooked would be enough to turn greens into yellows.
But no. Due to sheer laziness, I have not learned my lesson yet. Lucky for me, they are still edible and delicious.
My dad would not agree though. I doubt he would enjoy lemon juice infused steamed veggies. 🙄
Monday and today, well… something’s came up and I did not cook.
