(Written on 6th August 2013)
I have been extremely fatigue these days without any known reason, so I left my work pretty early today. It’s frustrating for being not productive these days at work due to other factors on top of my health issue, but I couldn’t be bothered more as I slept the whole afternoon away until L called me on his way home at 6pm.
Right, what about dinner. It’s my little sister’s birthday today but I am too tired to cook a proper dinner. We (my sister and I) expect a proper home-cooked Chinese dinner should be consisting at least 3 dishes, a meat dish, a vegetable dish and a soup. Additional one side dish would be the best. And to get that in 1.5 hour time after work is quite demanding especially for a good soup. L isn’t picky in this case as he could happily eat his dinner with just one dish as long as it is home-cooked.
L called again later because the car broke down. So I was all by my own to prepare the dinner. To save the time and energy, I looked for ready-to-use ingredients in the fridge and I found some leftover ham, a pack of baby spinach and an opened cheese block that I really want to use up as soon as possible.
A baked pasta will be good.
It was fast and sweet. I didn’t cook at my normal speed but I was able to get it done almost an hour including all the prep work. My little sister who prefers chinese meal seemed disappointed to see just one tray of baked pasta as a dinner. In the end she drank my instant miso soup to complete her birthday dinner.
Oh well, I guess I am not as unproductive as I imagined. I’ll do a birthday cake for her some day then when I get better.
