I don’t consider myself a good cook. I do dabble in experiments in the kitchen but my repertoire is limited to : long cut adobo, paella, Italian style spaghetti and torta patata. Baking, on the other hand, is a different thing.
Back in Australia, our dinners were different from what I am used to in Manila. For one, rice was not a regular except if we have Chinese. And I am talking about food, not the nationality. Cooking, traveling or not, definitely saves a lot of money.
Below are some of the food Boo and I whipped up (except for the prune bread which I baked very early in the morning in my first week there).
I must say that preparing and cooking your own food bring a different satisfaction. Yes, there are more plates to wash but getting first hand lessons from someone is a happy bonding time. Much better than a fine dining date.
And washing the dishes is never a chore when someone got your back. I am lucky to have Boo who is very comfortable in the kitchen and Dotty who ate all the excess food.
