Cass is such an easy-going child. She is not as persnickety when it comes to food, unlike her 2 older sisters. She will even be happy if she is given just Honey Stars or bread for lunch or dinner! But would I do that? Only if I am super duper busy and unwell to cook.
Today is the first day that Alycia and Sherilyn are away. With just Cass, cooking for her is such a breeze!
This morning, I bought a piece of chicken keel to boil radish soup. Yes, only 1 piece of chicken keel vs. 4-5 pieces if I were to prepare soup for 2 more kids.
Actually, I ain’t in the mood to cook anything today due to sleep deprivation (I got up at 4:30am to prepare A & S for their early morning flight) but I forced myself to make a trip to the mini mart to buy chicken for the soup as well as some veggies for tonight. I had to finish cooking all the perishables in the fridge before we leave for Auckland on Tuesday.
For lunch, I blanched some Japanese colorful noodles (which tastes like ‘min sin’) for Cass. The colors of the noodles come from vegetables.
Seasoning for the noodles is pretty simple and just a few — sesame seed oil, a dash of organic soy sauce, toasted sesame seeds, fried onions, seasoned Korean seaweed and some radish soup. The turmeric chicken was left-over from dinner last night.
And my baby girl noshed away this bowl of noodles in a jiffy, as though it was some tasty, MSG-laden noodles from a Japanese restaurant!
Tonight’s dinner will be grilled chicken drumsticks, blanched veggie and radish soup. No wonder friends of mine with just 1 child are so free! Cooking for just 1 child is sup sup sui!! *feeling proud of smug* HAHA!
