I am a frustrated cook and, yes, I love to cook. 😀
After a few boring posts about my life and how things were a bit messy, tonight I decided to put some colors in this blog.
I’ve always loved food. Who doesn’t? But, I don’t just love food, I also want to prepare what I eat. If I am home, I refuse to cook because my mom still cooks the best food in town; for me at least. You have to try my mom’s cooking and you’ll surely love it. (Proud son here) But, when I am in my apartment, I love preparing what goes inside my mouth. I don’t cook the usual recipes that you can see everywhere. I can’t even cook them. Instead, I go to the store and look for any random ingredients that seems pleasing to the eyes and hope they taste good when I cook them. Tonight, luckily, the store in front of my apartment had tomatoes, garlic and onions. With that, I decided to rekindle my love for tomatoes and made myself a hearty dinner after a very tiring day.
For tonight’s menu, I cooked the fluffiest scrambled eggs I ever tasted.
2 large eggs
1/2 cup of evaporated milk (best with whole milk)
Beat eggs until fluffy. Heat the pan with a little bit of oil. When pan is heat enough, pour the beaten eggs followed by milk and mix with spatula. After a minute of mixing, remove from heat to avoid overcooking and let the heat of the pan continue cooking the egg. If egg is already fluffy enough but not dry, take out of pan and serve.
Aside from the fluffy eggs, I opened a can of hot and spicy tuna and mixed it with sauteed garlic and onions.
The best part of tonight’s dinner are the sauteed tomatoes. I love tomatoes; raw or cooked. Imagine that red or green tomato, cut in half, and yes, tomatoes are love. Anyway, tonight I sauteed tomatoes and sprinkled it with bits of oregano leaves. Here’s how I did it.
2 large tomatoes
Chop onion and garlic with how large or small you want them. I prefer them as tiny as possible. Heat oil in pan and start sauteing onions and garlic. When aroma engulfs the whole place, put in the tomatoes and cook for a minute or two. Don’t let the tomatoes get burnt or don’t let them get saggy to maintain firmness. Sprinkle a bit of salt and mix thoroughly. Serve and sprinkle with oregano leaves to add a bit of fancy.
Here’s how it looked after. I know some of you might not be a fan of tomatoes, but I just love them especially with eggs. And some of you might notice that I just cooked a dish usually intended for breakfast, but, I have a very bad habit of not having breakfast in the morning so I make one for dinner.
That hearty dinner.
After tonight’s break from all school stuffs, I will be going back to them tomorrow. That then means I will be eating outside more to avoid the time consuming cooking session. I just have to finish my thesis manuscript, micro teaching, History video project, and Industrial Chemistry paper so I can have regular chance of cooking my meal.
Hope you enjoyed this post and I encourage everyone to try what I cooked and please love tomatoes. And if you already love them, then keep loving them. 😀
