This week, I’ve been making one dish meals for dinner.  My maid, Siti, has gone back for a month’s holiday to Indonesia.  Since she’s gone, I don’t have a lot of time to cook.  Trying to keep things as simple as possible.  I have to plan ahead what to make for dinner and try to have food cooked and the kitchen half decent when it’s dinner time.  I make a BIG mess when cooking. Cleaning up takes awhile.  Usually, I will ask Siti to do the prep work like the cutting and dicing of vegetables  for me and cleaning up the mess afterwards.  OMG, this week my legs and feet have been aching so much.  Not used to standing so long doing everything.  I really deserve the massage I’m getting this Sat. 

 My family actually likes one dish meals, but sometimes I like to have a real Chinese dinner with soup, meat, fish, and a couple of veggies.  The kids have been pretty picky lately(my 6 year old wants ham and cheese everyday, the girls don’t like rice), so they’re pretty happy this week .  I made beef stroganoff with buttered rice, loh mai gai, shepherd’s pie(looks like tator tot cass b/c I added corn as the bottom layer), two kinds of fried rice-chix w/ fishcakes and mixed veg, and Thai beef with prawns, and blanquette d’veau(had to use beef instead of veal).  And tonight, since dh had Lodge, I took them out for McD’s.  Lunch has been sandwiches, take outs, fried noodles and porridge.  There’ll be more one dish meals to come-lots of pastas or a starch, meat/seafood and veg kind of meals.
