My #2 son has been sick for a few days with sore-throat and runny nose, you know…. the whole flu package. He is 14 yrs od and a very picky eater. Allergic to prawns and most seafoods like crabs and other shellfish. Doesn’t take spicy foods and insist to have several Western meals a week.Ã‚ He knows his cheeses like how Emmentaler, blue cheese, matured cheddar, parmesan, mozarella, brie, camembert etc etc taste and how they differ. Much more than me because to me cheese is either hard or soft.
So, I gave him some left-over chicken soup from yesterday dinner with bits of shredded chicken and pasta for his lunch. He was slurping them with much gusto. Then, he paused and said, “Ma, make sure you find me a wife who can cook like these next time.”
LOL, I told him don’t dream because nowadays, none of the girls want to go into the kitchen, what more learn cooking. The best bet is for him to find an Italian wife because he likes Italian food so much.
I am pretty low on food supplies and make do with some pasta again today. I bought some beef tendon and stew it for like 5 hours in the slow-cooker with carrots, onions and tomato base pasta sauce. I added a pinch of fennel and that’s all. The tendon came out so lovely and soft.
I boiled some cauliflowers and it goes so well with the spaghetti. Scrap some parmesan on it, sprinkle with a bit of black pepper and bits of sage and it looks and tastes yummy.
So, what do you think?Ã‚ Will there left any more girls who can cook in future?Ã‚ Almost every family has maids and people eat take-out food.Ã‚ Do you think my son will find a wife who can cooks, say in another 15-20 years time?
