Before married, I didn't plan for my dinner. I just ate what I got from my kitchen (mom brought food). I didn't have a fixed dinner time as well. I just ate when I were hungry.
Being a housewife, dinner time has been the most challenging thing to me. For the first week, I alwaysfigured out "there is no food in the kitchen" at ~5pm. When I say no food, it really means NOTHING! Of course, both me and my hubby can dine out. Yet it is hard to explain to Mr. that I have been doing nothing at home for a whole day… So I rush to the supermarket, buy some food and then prepare dinner ASAP. This vicious circle did bother me a bit… Especially while I am wandering at the market and thinking the FAQ of the worldwide housewives “今晚食咩”…
Therefore, I took a little revolution in 2009… (i.e. after married for 1 month), I need to plan ahead for dinner. The fact is I plan for 5 day dinner and buy those ingredients during weekends with my hubby.
Good thing is
1) I don’t have to rush to market every day such that I have more “free” time at home on my beading.
2) We can eat healthier, (I guess…) less noodles night.
3) I don’t have to carry those heavy bags! Yay*
