Who doesn’t have lazy moments? Today is one those for me. I wanted to cook a very simple dish so that wouldn’t spend so much time in the kitchen.
After work, I hurried to the nearest supermarket to buy fresh sausages and baby spinach for our pasta. For the former, I always buy the ones on sale. Usually, supermarkets put about to expire items on sale and in the case of fresh sausages that I bought, they have to be consumed either on the same day or the next. But I save S$5 or 50% of the price!
For some, they’d probably eat out when the designated cook is on her ‘lazy day’ mode. But for my family, we’ve got some sort of ‘eat out’ days. Eating out also sometimes makes me more upset unless I eat Chicken Biryani so I’d rather drag myself to cook something simple that can still satisfy my palate. And by the way, this Sausage and Spinach Pasta meal only costs less than S$15.
