Sambal = chilli sauce
Goreng = fry
Hati = liver
Gosh… Last week has been really bad for me. My daughter had high fever Monday and Tuesday, and finally had her energy back on Wednesday. However, my head started to feel a bit heavy and very tired too but still managed to clean and tidy the house a bit. Then in the afternoon (the same day) I officially got fever too, so I was laying down pretty much for the rest of the day.
On Thursday, husband had a bit fever too so he stayed home from work. Daughter didn’t get her fever back but looked worse than Wednesday. So she slept pretty much all day too. I felt a bit better and I had to feel better because I had to do a cake for my friend which she’ll pick up on Friday. And I had to sit almost 6 hours in the kitchen with heavy head and very tired body but managed to finish the cake that day.
On Friday, my daughter felt a bit better again. Husband also got better. And me… Worse… I had to lay down again all day because of the head so heavy and dizzy and started to have runny nose and sore throat.
Saturday, thank God, we all finally feel better, but I still couldn’t stand for too long in the kitchen and husband had to do the dinner.
What a week, eh?
Moral of the story.. I think husband needs to learn how to cook a bit more. So when something like this happen again, I don’t have to worry so much about leaving him in the kitchen by himself :D
Luckily now I have some “ready foods” in the freezer. I have been doing this freezer foods for almost 3 months now. And I can feel that it’s a great thing to do. Well, I have to work a bit harder with the menu planning, shopping and cooking almost everything at the same day. But after that, I just need to pick the ready stuffs from freezer, reheat / cook and its done. I totally recommend this method.
Okay, now back to the point. This is still the part of the menu where I ate chicken curry and roti jala. I took the recipe form this awesome funny blog (if you’re Indonesian or understand Bahasa, you should check it out). And I agree with her about the ready sambel goreng hati sauce from the brand she mentioned. I don’t like ready sauces that much, but for this food, that brand is the best! Definitely!
