Lately I’ve been feeling super rajin in the kitchen. I don’t know… this is all Masterchef’s fault. Ever since I’ve been hooked to the show, I have some crazy imagination that I must be a kitchen goddess. Like I just must be! Perhaps a hidden talent that needs to be unleashed? I convinced myself this.
I have a few recipe books people got me as wedding gifts (how’d they know.. pfft) so I flipped through them. Gosh the pictures look so good they must have gone through a few rounds of photoshop. I salivated a little flipping through them. In the end, I got stressed because I couldn’t decide on a chicken dish so we ended up eating out that night. Haha.
But this whole eating out business isn’t very healthy if done all the time, so I went to the supermarket and made friends with the butcher guy. Got some tips from him, and found out what fish is good to grill, what fish is good to fry etc etc. Did you guys know seabass is siakap? Anyway!
So I got home. In my head, I’m making a masterchef quality dish. Grilled seabass with mushroom ravioli topped with creamy mushroom sauce, and roasted sliced potatoes seasoned with salt and pepper.
COME ON NOW… Did you guys not drool a bit at that description??
Dean was going to arrive home from work soon. I was frantically moving around the kitchen from pot to pan to oven to grill. If this was a reality show and you fast forwarded me, I would’ve reminded you of a monkey.
Anyway, I was so on my game! Marinated the fish, put it aside to leave it to the end, boiled pasta, mushroom sauce in sauce pan ready to be stirred.
Oooooh! The potatoes in the oven are ready! Tinggg!
Cooked to perfection!
Such a lucky man, Dean.
