Here’s the thing: we’ve been eating out nearly every night for dinner last week, either due to laziness, or the need to make the end of the work day seem a little bit more special. (We eat poached chicken for lunch and oatmeal for breakfast – it gets old.) This is not healthy, and eating out regularly is expensive, so on Saturday we did a proper grocery run with ground meat and seasoning and all and promised to only eat what we could make in our kitchen. That same night J had an intense craving for pizza, but I said a firm no. We really need to save some money and keep our poor, abandoned kitchen company.
What we cooked over the weekend: beef giniling (ground beef simmered in beef stock and tomato sauce), nilaga, microwave cake, and a Juicy Lucy (burger with the cheese inside).
They’re not all successful (my microwave cake was a bit dry and the burger was too thick), but we’re learning. (Note: J cooked most of these dishes! I’m the dishwasher.)
Know some easy recipes? (More microwave desserts?) Do share. :)
