Emergency Rations: Tomato S.O.S

As you guys know, my wife is away in hospital with our 1 year old and so our house chores & cooking are all up to me. I'm also looking after Sarah, our 2 year old. Pictured is what I made for our breakfast - scrambled eggs, salad, sausages with tomato s.o.s, alphabet croquette and orange juice.

At least Sarah said "sedaaap!" (meaning: delicious!). I hope at her age she is not just saying that to make me feel better;)

  1. Subliminal message intentional.
  2. Tomorrow: May Day Pancakes (that is, if Nisa is still away).
How to make Mynn's Emergency Scrambled Eggs:
  1. Crack two eggs into an oven-proof jug
  2. add salt to taste
  3. whisk hard
  4. put in a microwave for 1 minute on the high setting (750kw)
  5. after 1 minute, remove from microwave and whisk
  6. microwave again for 1 minute, and repeat until the eggs are cooked.
  7. (normal cooking time I find is around 2-3 minutes)
  8. It does work and the results are satisfying. Delicious with pepper.

The scrambled eggs look inviting. And so do the alphabet croquette. I suppose Sarah's compliments were sincere :)

Mynn said...

haha, hiyoshi - the scrambled eggs is a recipe i got from my senior house officer during a set of night oncalls.

seriously, although it's microwaved, the taste is just as nice ... (especially in an emergency;)

you're a good cook, i bet even my best efforts cannot top your worst.

.hack is an anime about a MMORPG, recently there are high definition versions available. it looks stunning!

auntie de, so far you're the only person who's mentioned "SAVE US", i really wonder whether orang lain dapat the joke or not ...

i showed the picture to nisa but she didnt get it either (nisa rabun)so tak nampak screen.

I just checked your website today - away during weekends.

Yep, I saw the save us too, and is grinning tak habis2 lagi. Mynn and his sense of humour, even at the worst of times!

alhamdulillah, i think Allah has given me the ability to smile and laugh even at the worst of times (so far).
