The June holidays came and went but we did manage to squeeze in a little bit of cooking.
We were walking pretty aimlessly at NTUC because we couldn't decide it would be lasagna or grilled fish this evening and then I saw bok choy and then smiled and told C that we would have something special. By this time, C was most exasperated with me as she had been walking up and down the aisle, taking things off the shelves and putting them back due to our indecisiveness.
We got our pork and bok choy. As fr the dashi miso paste, we have that at home since I regularly prepare lunch for C and myself during term time. I told C to layer the vegetable and meat. She was having fun actually. Then it was placed in a pot.
We added the dashi miso paste and some water. She also added in some carrots. Then we brought it to a boil and let it simmer for a while before switching the stove off. There was no need to add in extra seasoning. I was telling C that we could add in radish should we make this dish again in the future. Our cabbabe, pork and carrot nabe! C sheepishly said that she didn't know she liked cabbage.
C and Daddy loved it! They finished everything that was in the pot and C commented that we should have bought a bigger bok choy. There is always another opportunity. :)
Last week, C also made dessert. Oreo cheese-cake! Not too bad for a first attempt and she enjoyed the process. We would try other flavours in the future and she said we should get other kinds of sugar for the mixture too.
She saved this piece for her daddy.
