In the past, I used to bring lunch for the boys when I fetch them from school. Nowadays they take care of their own lunch. SK usually grabs a quick meal in the school canteen while YK often cook something when he gets home by bus.
Hence I try to prepare a nutritious dinner in case they're not getting a balanced meal for lunch. This evening's dinner was cooked in a flash because they were hungry. While the rice was boiling in the cooker, I stir-fried spinach with tiny silverfish (or is it whitebait?), sauteed sweetpeas and fresh button mushroom and pan fried some chicken fillet. Since they wanted to eat in a hurry, we didn't sit round the dinner table like usual. Instead, they each get a plate like this:
I wanted to boil lotus root soup in the crockpot early this morning but found that the lotus root wasn't fresh anymore after languishing in the fridge for a week. So I threw some pork ribs, peanuts, chick peas, carrot and corn into the pot. The soup was simple but yummy, especially when everyone's hungry!
