The easiest thing to cook for me would be fish and chips sebab semua masuk oven.
Or pies/sausage rolls and chips sebab semua pun masuk oven jugak.
Basically anything yang tinggal masuk oven is loved by me sebab menyenangkan kerja masak memasak I lah.
Kalau asian food pulak, I guess nasi goreng is on top of the ‘senang nak masak’ list.
Especially if you could find some nice cooked meat and a nice sauce in the freezer to go along with it kan, hehehehe.
That’s what I made tonite.
I found the beef kebabs I made a long time ago in the freezer. Enough for the girls to eat.
The Other Half wasn’t home for dinner tonite so I masak ikut tekak the girls lah.
I made nasi goreng telur yang tak pedas langsung for them.
And I panfried the already cooked beef kebabs so they became sate-like on the outside, nicely charred and crispy.
Then I also found a container of nut sauce in the freezer so apa lagi, I pun reheated that so the girls could have it with the kebab and the nasi goreng.
And suddenly, my nasi goreng sempoi became a bit upmarket!
Just because I tambah the kebabs and nut sauce and the keropok sayur, hahahahaha…..
Tu lah sebabnya why I love cooking and making food more than what’s needed for dinner.
So, I can freeze the leftovers to be used in the future in times of needs, just like tonite .
But bukan semua boleh di freeze kan lah.
I tak pernah cuba nak freeze cooked potato chips or roast potatoes. I dont think they’ll taste nice.
Most other things I do freeze, from muffins that I make to bread to meatballs to kebab to nasi goreng to curries to soup to sambal to inti2 pau to sauces.
Some I’ll keep in containers in the freezer but most of the stuff I will keep in zip-lock bags with the dates and the names of the food written on the bags.
Ini untuk menyenangkan kerja I so I know what’s in each bag.
Sebab kadang2 tu, bila dah beku and dah tersimpan bulan2, memang lupa lah what’s in the bag kan.
Tu sebab I perlu ada big freezers, hahahaha…..
