The list

I'm making a list. A menu to be exact. Starting from 31 August, I will be making meals at home. According to my fengshui master, 31 Aug is the most auspicious date for moving in. That means, I should avoid cooking before that date. The kids think I'm crazy but what's the point of consulting a geomancer if you're not going to listen to his advice right?

Anyway, back to my list. Instead of the traditional Chinese dinner of rice, stir fried dishes and soup at my parent's house every night, I'm planning on having more one-pot meals for the three of us. Whenever I come across or think of dishes I can cook, I add it to my list. So far, I've got:
- Salmon teriyaki with rice
- Kimchi hotpot with tofu and Inoki mushroom
- Chicken rice
- Glutinuous rice wrapped in lotus leaf
- Pasta -vongole or seafood or minced meat
- Paella
- Chicken teriyaki
- Steamboat
- Fried glass noodles

Of course on some days we'll have rice with stir fried dishes like what we normally eat at home.

Until then, I'm making a list and checking it twice...

Reminds me of university days... Put the meat and vege in the rice cooker and let it all simmer. Saves on washing cooking utensils right?

I love making lists.

The food sounds yummy. Roll on August 31st in your house!

CH - Heh, I didn't think about the washing part. I'm so used to cooking for a big family, so cooking for 3 takes a bit of getting used to.

World - You do? I used to make long lists when I was in the design industry. There were always plenty of deadlines to track and stuff to follow up. But since I left that industry, I gave up making lists too. Maybe that explains why I'm always forgetting things...

Yah, I can't wait to start cooking soon. Eating out everyday is not the best thing to do.
