There are some days that I just want no hassle when it comes to cooking (they are very rare but still). On those days I want to cook something simple and quick that does not take a lot of preparation. When I am in such a mood, I have usually been to work and the gym and by the time I sit down with my dinner it will be 21:00 (for me that is quite late). So anything that will need 15 minutes to prep and cook is reasonable for me then. Luckily I became an expert in quick and easy meals when I was living in dorms with 15 other housemates and one induction plate to cook on, since the other one was always broken. It didn’t matter how many times we got it fixed, it continued to break down.
The colder months of the year. It is a time where I like to spent time in the kitchen even more than usual. I take more time to prepare meals and put more thought into the dishes that I make. I suppose that has also to do with the fact that right now it is the warmest place in the house.
This dish that I made earlier this week is right up my winter comfort food street. It is simple, reasonably quick to make (30-45 min) and just a little different than usual.
Tired, hungry and cold. Those three things that went through my head I was cycling home from work on Thursday fantasising about that greasy portion of chips I was going to order as soon as I was home. When I finally came home I realised I would rather have a big plate of steaming comfort food. Semi-healthy comfort food. Anyway it would be better than greasy chips and without a doubt much tastier too
