It is not an every day affair that I cook. In fact, it may not even a once in a week or fortnight affair that I cook. But when I do, I always pray for a miracle. There are times (mostly) where the food is barely edible but definitely never good enough to show-off or to brag about (blush..). But when a miracle does happen, then I would want to tell as many as I can that cooking miracles do happen haha...
I was cleaning the larder when I saw the bottle of Pregos which I got a few weeks ago and the reason that I got it was for the free melamine plate which comes free with it. Damn cheapskate yah? That was Saturday evening. So, on Sunday, went to the nearest supermarket to pick up some prime Aussie beef, fresh white button mushrooms and fresh basil leaves.
Prepared everything for cooking at 5pm on Sunday. Not even going to bother to put the recipe in here coz cooking spaghetti isn't really rocket science and I bet the food bloggers out there will have plenty of better recipes to share. Took me about 2 hrs to finish cooking (and that is because boiling the pasta-spaghetti took ages). Was doing all this while watching "Mermaid" on Astro. Rather moving parts in the movie which started my tear ducts going.. mmm.. no wonder I didn't have to add too much salt into the gravy.
When everything was done..it looked edible (which is much more than I can say for some of the other stuff I tried to cook up). No one was home.. so, how to show off leh? So, took out my camera phone, took a shot and decided who I can mms to. Could only think of 4 people. They were so very nice, all 4 of them... coz they replied :).
Now feeling kinda encouraged to cook more but for those who knows me well, nah.. the feeling probably will only last til this Wednesday...that lazy cow :p
