Domestic (un)Goddess

As I need to jot down every single thing I'm eating and drinking for the next 2 weeks, I have decided to roll up my sleeves and try cooking a few times over this period. I had the luxury of eating this beautiful salad served up by Tripod Farmers at the Good Food & Wine Show on Friday, and I committed all the ingredients to heart as I scoffed the whole thing down at its stand. The only thing missing? The recipe for the dressing, and they lied to me because I can't find the recipe on their website as they claimed! Gosh, I was devastated. There I was, thinking I found my one salvation to eating salads happily, but it was dashed. Ah well.

Breakfast : Carman's original fruit-free muesli with Bonsoy's soy milk.

Lunch : Baby spinach, rockets, ham, greek feta cubes, parmesan, and cherry tomatoes.

2 dressings were used for the salad.
Talinga Grove's Extra Virgin Olive Oil (Garlic Infused) is a beautiful oil used for dipping bread, and went very well with the salad. I also added Kewpie's Deep-Roasted Sesame Dressing, which smells and tastes absolutely wonderful. It totally allows me to eat the rawest veggies quite tolerably.

Dinner : Low GI rice with ume toppings, fried egg (yum!) and pan-fried salmon pieces. Kikkoman soy sauce to complete the egg experience.

And that's all for today, from yours truly who has probably cooked no more than 10 times in her life. Now let me go wash the obscene tons of plates/pans which are totally not worth the time since I finished eating in... 2 secs. Cooking for one person is so not worth the time and effort really, sigh. Well, at least I'll be having salmon and rice again for lunch tomorrow.


  1. I NEVER thought I would see the day you eat SALAD!
    Good on you!!! Keep it up.

  2. Trying to!!! It's not the yummiest thing on earth though. ><
