big cook sunday

I made lunch today, thought I’d get it ready when she woke up. Okay, I was woken up by the phone this morning and couldn’t get back to sleep. She was so peaceful in bed so I went and played on her iMac. Then it was nearly lunchtime and even though we usually follow the “I cook at my place, she cook at hers” rule, I wanted to get the lunch done.

Egg and minced beef on rice. Something we’ve been having for years and years and years. As soon as the rice is in and water started to boil, add marinaded minced beef and crack a couple of eggs. Then turn the gas right down and watch the rice cook with the beef and the egg. Add soy sauce and that’s it. We had 3 bowls each!

Came home early. Made beef, tomato, carrot, potato and cabbage soup. Put everything in the pot and simmer for 2 hours. My dinner for the next 3 days.

Roasted a whole butternut squash. Going to add it to rocket, cherry tomato salad then sprinkle some blue cheese on top. Lunch for tomorrow and the day after.

Got to start planning healthy menus again.
