Being a mother and a business owner at the same time often means that time is of essence to me. Every single second counts - I don't have a lot of time to prepare the kids' meals but even that, I don't think it's healthy (or cost-effective) to kow-tow to McDonald's delivery or Dominos too much.
This means that I have to get creative in the kitchen.
I am not Martha Stewart and let me qualify myself by saying that most of the stuff I cook are done using the agak-agak (guessing) method. Sometimes they work, sometimes they don't. See how my luck goes lah.
But I think the way I cook the quick meals during the weekdays would benefit people like my sister who recently took up an interest in cooking meals during the weekends. So, here I am. I decided to post some of my cheat sheets. You can probably find or come up with your own cheat sheets because, like I said, I am master at the keyboard (piano or PC also can) but not in the kitchen.
But this is called share-share lah.... :-)
BBQ sause chic & mixed veg
This recipe can be called the quick way to a pan of fried rice without as many utensils to wash thereafter activity. Very easy to make and took me about 20 mins to make.
Mixed veg....good choice. No need to soak nor cut. Just thawing is enough.
I marinated the chicken overnight with Kikkoman Terriyaki BBQ sauce together with some sugar, salt and pepper.
I cut some onions and put it into my rice cooker, together with some oil.
The rice to be cooked has been separately washed and drained.
The onions starts to smell fragant, so, I put in the marinated chicken together with the onions and let it cook a bit until the chicken in cooked.
Once the chicken is cooked, put in the washed rice and then add some water. Put in some soya sauce, salt or pepper or some more Terriyaki sauce in there....see-lah, how you like it.
Once it starts to boil and cook, DON'T FORGET TO ADD THE MIXED VEGE. I forgot to take a picture of this step. Hee hee....
And the end-result would be something like this lor.
