If I had not learnt how to cook, I would have not survived in Zürich. I’ve just finished a huge dinner, and I would have had to splurge to eat the same amount out.
Pizza, Lamb with Cabbage, Soup, Blueberry Yoghurt, Orange Juice
pizza margherita 1.80
boneless lamb 4.05
part of cabbage 0.50
2 onions 0.30
2 peppers 1.00
4 potatoes 0.80
2 chillis 0.30
1l orange juice 0.80
blueberry yoghurt 175g 0.45
total cost 11.85 (for all you calculators out there, x1.4 to get SGD)
i’m still finishing the orange juice now. *burP* I think my budget for my SEP is used on food, travel and accommodation. The lamb was the best dish that I’ve ever cooked! It tasted like home food, not too salty, not too tough. Cabbage was a little hard, but that’s cos I forgot to add it in until a little later. The pizza.. well.. margherita, what does one expect.. tomato and cheese.. The soup was a little watery, but that’s to be expected since i cooked my usual 5 litre pot of soup, and the meat and goodies are always at the bottom (the flavour from the meat is also not out yet). The blueberry yoghurt tasted great for 45c, and my tummy feels round now.
It hailed today. I thought it was rain. But E said it’s way too strong to be rain, so I went to the window and lo, small balls of ice raining down. First time I’ve really seen hail, I heard it happened in Singapore recently (don’t know how much hail that was), but I’m glad that I have experienced it, and while I’m indoors 🙂 If you look at the photo you’ll see these downward streaks, that’s the falling ice cubes, some of which are on my arm.
Note: @Jugglers, Chi Minh alerted me that Mister Babache is a Swiss brand. I checked it up and they are selling good quality equipment here. I can pick some up for you if you want.
