It was a "full" weekend


If we're not somewhere else traveling or looking for serious adventure or not in the mall. Me and my small family turns a regular weekend to an in-house gastronomic feast (okay, that's exaggerated). 

If we didn't have an itinerary on a Saturday or a Sunday morning, I always expect our day to start very late like around noon time. Since I'm a morning person, and I don't want to have a boring weekend I usually prepare breakfast. I always make it to a point to add a little twist to whatever I cook so that my 'waking-them-up' very early will be worth it.


Instead of a regular toast, top any kind of bread with a mixture of tomato, cheese and  spring onion.
I put scrambled egg, lettuce and a customized salsa sauce in between the white bread



see how boring a bread can be, without a little twist
Adding cheese to your omelet and topping it with parsley will make it look fancy

Fruit juice
Another suggestion I got from a Thai restaurant is to add bits of fruits in your regular fruit juice. It adds flavor and color too!

Ramen
One of my favorite was turning our regular instant noodles to a healthy (maybe) pleasing-to-look-at treat. I did it by adding eggs, a little chilly powder (or curry), thinly sliced vegetable (carrots and cabbage) and bits of hams.


P.S. I'm not a cook and I don't consider myself one.

  6. Hey I do the same thing for the noodles I cook in the house. I think of it as a way to counter all that MSG in it. :P

  7. Actually men are the best cook. According to chef John Burton Race says: "It is a fact that men are the best cooks, professional or not." So I guess you're of them, CHEF MARK JOSEPH.

  11. So true, decorations and presentation make the food look more appealing and delicious. I always add veggies and eggs/chicken/shrimps to instant noodles to make it more flavorful and nutritious.
