After posting the initial blog post about my attempt to cook in the next 52 weeks, I had some rest. Upon recovering from the rest, I panic. Yup, I did. I was like ‘what the heck’ was I think. I was flooded with excuses after excuses. Can I do this? What if I can’t find time? What if I lost interest? What happen when I am away during Jan/Feb? What if…what if…and more what if….Gosh! Thinking back now sitting here blogging this I felt like I don’t even know who that person was with all the ‘what if’. Surely it doesn’t sound like me. But it was. The quickly discouraged me.
Nonetheless, I have recovered from my negativity and I am on to it. I know I can do this. It’s just 2 recipes a week for the next 52 weeks. How hard can that be? 😛
RECIPES COMPLETED: 01/104 | WEEKS REMAINING: 52/52
Last night I cooked:
You can check out the ingredients and cooking instruction by clicking the links above. The only extra that I added was the carrot to give it a bit more colour.
Mistakes I have made while cooking this meal:
- Never cook when I am hungry! As I go overboard with the ingredients.
- Don’t go nuts with the soya sauce. I followed the instruction per the website but tried it and it tasted a bit bland. So I added more to it. But after the shimmer, my braised tofu/bean curd was really salty. But it’s really my fault.
- Be gentler with the tofu while flipping it. Or I need to use a firmer tofu.
- Need to find Kimchi juice to add to the main. It wasn’t as sour as I would like it to.
Lesson learnt! 😛
Hmmmm! Wondered what cuisine should I experiment on next?
Second Recipe for Week #1 would be Italian. Don’t forget to check out my next endeavour.
