If my response is slow…

If you see me online in the mornings and buzzed me, only two things might come out of it. Either I respond to your buzz or I don’t. Most of the time I do respond but I might be a little late in replying. Let me tell you why. 
I sleep late every night. No prize for guessing why :P I wake up early as Ethan is an early riser.  I have less than an hour to prepare his breakfast, bathe him and off to class he goes.  Then I’ll get back home to prepare lunch. There are times before I drag myself into the kitchen, I’ll do a quick check on my email to see if there is anything urgent for me :D And that is when you’ll see my status as online… 
I cook four dishes everyday. Two vegetable dishes, one taufu or egg dish and one soup. Let’s see what I dished out today :P

Vegetable dish

Another vegetable dish

Taufu dish for today, tomorrow will be egg :P

Corn soup with the famous enoki :D Have you read what happened when Ethan had enoki last time? If you haven’t, read about it here :P
As you can see, we don’t usually have meat during weekdays. I don’t know why. Maybe I’m such a lousy cook that the above are all that I can dish out. But what is most important is, those dishes are kid friendly. Ethan loves them and that is all that matters. For Darling and I, we can always have the weekend to indulge in our cravings :D
Watch this video to see how Ethan eats his corn. Bite then suck the juice out of the core! Yummy! :D
