First attempt on Home cooked meals

It wasn’t long enough since I became a Hotel and Restaurant Management (HRM) student. It really didn’t occur to me that I will be choosing to major in Culinary Arts. One thing I considered when I chose to shift to HRM is to cook food for my family. Somehow, I am not cooking everytime I’m at home..lol I also remembered a saying, “A way to a man’s heart is though his stomach.” hehe.

Anyway, just this week, I’m not sure what really made up my mind to try something. Something that I am not fond of and not well known of. Majoring in Culinary Arts, you may know that I might be good in cooking or so. Well, there’s one secret to tell, I may be good in baking and other dishes but there’s one thing I don’t know, that is home cooked meals. But this week, I tried to cook so. hehe

Thankfully, my dad taught me how to cook rice. Some examples of Home cooked meals are Sinigang (Sour soup fish), Menudo (Pork in tomato sauce), Kaldereta(beef), Tinola,etc.. Honestly, I haven’t tried cooking anything of sorts. It may seem to be funny, but for me, I don’t think so.

I had all my first attempt in cooking Menudo, Puchero and Sinigang. It was almost a week since our ‘kasambahay’ left. Every morning, I wake up and haven’t eaten anything because no food is left in the table. Over the weekend, my mother went to Dagupan for a trip, because of that, my brothers woke me up in my sleep to cook for them. So I decided to cook Menudo. Eventhough I told you that I haven’t cooked any home meals, I think I know how to cook them. I tried to cook. Day after day, everytime our mother is not at home, my brothers would ask me to cook for them. Anyhow, I like to cook and have interest in it especially everytime nobody’s home (or atleast mom and our homebuddy is not around).

I really gave myself a nice pat on the back for cooking home cooked meals. Good work for me.🙂

Tonight, I remembered a movie entitled Julie & Julia. I haven’t started it but I did get a chance to watch it. Now I know how Julia felt every time she cooks.lol. The movie is a nice one for those who wants entertainment as well as tips on cooking and life.

Brief summary of Julie & Julia:

Julia Child’s story of her start in the cooking profession is intertwined with blogger Julie Powell’s 2002 challenge to cook all the recipes in Child’s first book.(http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1135503/)

Menudo: 3 thumbs up (no tomato paste next time)

Puchero: 4 thumbs up (nice try. I tried remembering its taste from one restaurant where I’ve eaten it)

Sinigang: 5 thumbs up (I’m not exagerrating, but I think my sinigang tasted somehow that of my dad’s-he cooks the best sinigang I’ve ever tasted)

Julie & Julia: 4 thumbs up

PS: I don’t think it would be likeable if I posted photos of my work.. hehe. post a comment if anything comes up to mind after reading this post.🙂
