Hello everyone~♥!

A short entry if you may~ \<^ε^>/

Sheep is not one who does the cooking in the house. I’m more of the ‘order’/'take out’ type. (Laughs)

But I don’t think I can keep doing that, can I? (Laughs nervously)

As a lady, I should know how to cook because well…For one, knowing how to cook is very handy and a life saver (not to mention, money saver as well). Home cooked food is the best and you can’t tire of it (Unless the home chef has a really horrible palate). In addition, much healthier and it saves you the trouble from having to go out for every meal!

It’s a good living skill~☆☆!

So anyway, I cooked my own meal last week~☆! ↓

It’s Beef and Bamboo in Oyster Sauce. Recipe from Whimsical Buddies blog.

I cooked this dish twice, with mum’s guidance. *Thanks Mummy dear*

Well this dish isn’t all that hard to cook. In fact, it’s very simple and quick for bums like me. <^-^>lll

The difficult part is the chopping board. There are methods on how you should cut your meat and vegetables. The size and thickness/thinness determines how well the food turns out. Don’t forget — Timing and precision as well. For kitchen virgins, you might be slow in slicing but if you cook often, you’ll get the hang out of it.

Baa~♪

Well…I’m going to dedicate my Sundays to cooking…most — of the Sundays. (Laughs nervously)

[ . . . ]

Sigh…

Actually, I’m pretty depressed at the moment and am trying to keep my mind occupied just so to escape certain thoughts. And this shouldn’t be an excuse to write a sloppy entry. I’m wasting everyone’s time, right?

Anyway, have a good week and — appreciate home cook food, ok? (Laughs)

Oh, if you do cook — can you spare any good tips for newbies like me? Like how to handle a knife and all that?

And if you aren’t a kitchen lover, well…When do you plan on learning how to cook and differentiate onions and garlics? <^∀^>/

Any funny or interesting kitchen stories?

Just for giggles… ↓

Night~♥

Looks presentable and delicious! :) Should be smells good? Tabetai !!!!

How to handle a knife? Mmmm~ depend the size of the knife ne. To me, the most important thing is the knife must be sharp ;D ~ and if you having trouble chopping the meat/etc from the first chop, use the tip of the knife to create the chopping line! I does that all the time ;) Once the line created, you can cut it safely

Sometimes, pound the meat before cutting saves time ^^

In the end, the chopsticks melted and was scolded by dad. LOL!!!!!!!!!

Practice on the slicing part ms aya! When I was still a teeny little girl I always volunteer to slice the veggies (but not the meat, cause I dint like the smell of raw meat).

I dont know but for me, the preparation is equally important like the actual cooking process. When I’m eating or amateurishly “supervising” in the kitchen, I always chop the veggies thinly, and re-slice the badly chopped veggies. I have this perception that it adds to the goodness of the food! :)

You sound like such a perfectionist. Could you be an A blood perhaps? (Laughs)
