Ah Lo wanted mac and cheese for our meatless Monday, so mac and cheese we will have. He went “cheese” shopping with Mr. Piggy last night. He watched one youtube channel to see how it’s done using instant pot. And he did it (with little supervision). It was not too bad for the first time. I thought we will definitely have leftovers for lunch tomorrow. Nope, all gone.

Glad that the boys can now make simple meals on their own. IMG_0530

Our Wednesday nights are back to the basketball court with practices. So it’s more like eat-n-go kinda dinners. I prepped most of the ingredients last night. This fried rice wrapped in lotus leaf took about 30 minutes to cook (using bamboo steamer). I’ll will definitely make it again, especially in some of those chilly nights in winter!img_9966.jpg

This is simple, quick and economical, something that can easily satisfy our taco cravings on this fine sunny Tuesday. IMG_9610

One of the goals this summer is to show/teach the boys how to cook.  They agreed to cook a meal at least once a week. We’re not doing anything fancy, just want to make sure they won’t starve when mama is not around.UntitledHere’s what we’re all enjoying tonight for dinner. I still need to supervise, but as long as they are willing to do this, we’ll keep going. COHR5640 (1)

Another simple and satisfying meal filled with the right combination of protein, Vitamin C, and fiber. IMG_8654

Sometimes Mondays calls for a simple, meatless meal…IMG_8311

With InstaPot I made some porridge using leftover rice. While waiting for the boys to get ready, I decided to fancy up the porridge. I saw these on an Instagram post once and replicate them.  The Korean anchovies are homemade and add some peanuts, now the porridge are ready to be eaten. FullSizeRender 10

When NBA Finals, game 1 is on (Cleveland Cavaliers vs Golden State Warriors), dinner in front of TV is allowed. This means dinner will just be one plate fits all (except I have to make 4 plates)!
