Family meals

With the debut of our son into the household, I have been doing some serious thinking about my husband and my eating habit which can easily be summed up to – eating out too often. When there were just two of us adults, it was simpler and quicker to eat out since good and relatively healthy food is reasonably available in Singapore. However, now with a little tummy to feed – a system that is somewhat like a tabula rasa, I have decided that perhaps I should be spending more time planning and cooking our meals. After all, I grew up on home-cooked dinner almost every evening (and still get that when I visit my parents’) and sitting down to have dinner together  always brings back fond familial memories. And I want my son, too, to grow up looking back at family mealtimes positively.

Hence, it was this resolution that I decided to commit more time and effort to gastronomic pursuits. Besides, I was already  making my son’s lunch and dinner anyway (his favorite, by the way, is beef rice porridge with zucchini and tomatoes).

The internet is an infinite resource for recipes and I love a few sites that offer easy but healthy and delicious concoctions. Among them includes The Kitchn and Shutterbean. Over the weekend, I also bought a copy of possibly my first recipe book ever: Mad Hungry: Feeding Men and Boys by Lucinda Scala Quinn. I’m loving the book so far and the Tessy’s Banana Bread recipe is great!

Anyhow, my resolution started with my cooking lunch on Sunday and here’s what we had – Lemon Garlic Chicken. It was super easy to make and very yummy. In the words of my husband, “This will be added into the repertoire.” Find the recipe here: Lemon Garlic Chicken
