I read amazing food blogs and remember my Mum’s dedication to cooking home-cooked food from scratch.
I feel overwhelmed by the expectations I put on myself to prepare every meal from the bare bones up. I feel overwhelmed by the other people who seem able to do that.
I wouldn’t want one of you reading my blog and feeling guilty about your own cooking, so I decided to share tonight’s supper with you!
Meal deal of ready-prepared vegetables, stir-in sauce and straight-to-wok noodles.
A (reduced – of course! 😉 ) pack of beef strips.
Just as healthy and additive-free as it would have been if I’d done all the work.
I’m so grateful to my Mum and my Grandma for passing onto me a love for cooking and for teaching me the skills to cook mostly whatever I set my mind too – or at least where to go to find out how to do it! 😛
I don’t plan on loosing that.
What I do plan on losing is my self-imposed expectation that anything which is not prepared from the most scratched scratch that I can find, every single meal, is a sin! And definitely before we have kids! 😉
Oh, and my hubby still thought it was delicious, so what’s the problem?!
I hope you’re not too shocked at this little peek into the other side of my cooking life!! 😉
