“I want to get a job as someone who names kitchen appliances. Toaster, refrigerator, blender…. all you do is say what the shit does, and add “er”. I wanna work for the Kitchen Appliance Naming Institute. Hey, what does that do? It keeps shit fresh. Well, that’s a fresher….I’m going on break.” – XD Mitch Hedberg
I think Mr. Hedberg is on to an idea there. I would love that job too, haha!
Is anyone hungry? Can I cook you anything? I make a mean scrambled eggs in the microwave. 😀
Funny fact: I only learnt how to make microwave scrambled eggs recently. I always do it the normal way, plus my mother would be clutching her pearls if she finds out I would so bastardized a cooking method as such!
(Well….I think she is now since she reads this blog…)
One of my colleagues is on a clean eating diet, which involves as little as possible processed food. She has been ‘cooking’ her food in our little office kitchen using only the microwave. One of the thing she keeps making is scrambled egg…perhaps because it is easier to cook in the microwave. I have to admit though…if this is what clean eating is about, it’s a bit sad.
I come from a culture where eating is a national sport. We eat 5 times a day and we savour and celebrate food. In fact, our traditional greeting is not “hello, how are you?” but instead is “hello, have you eaten today?”
“The West uses the microwave too much,” my mother remarks everytime she comes over to visit me. You see, before moving to Kangaroo Land, I have never, ever used a microwave. There were no such ‘shame’ in my mother’s kitchen. XD
Reheating? Quick cooking? HOW DARE YOU MENTION THOSE! Food in our household are cooked fresh and gets eaten the same day the food are cooked.
I love cooking, but I don’t have a lot of time or energy for it. I don’t suppose my Mother approves of my way of eating nowadays, which involves a lot of takeaways and an ungodly amount of pizzas (as youngins, we were not allowed junk food like pizzas and sodas so I suppose this is me making up for all those junk food moments).
Oh, look at the time. It’s almost time for another order of pizza.
Look away, Ma! XD
