Eversince I started creating my weekly menu plans, Z’s nanny had an easier time cooking our meals during the week. She no longer has to decide on her own or wait for me to tell her what to cook. Menu planning has definitely made our lives easier. No kidding on that, especially for a working mom like me.
However, on weekends, I take over the reigns in the kitchen. Weekends are the times when I am able to cook something that is not usually included in our plans. I get to experiment on different recipes or even come up with my own.
Embutido is a Filipino-style meatloaf which is usually served during feasts. It’s a great dish that kids really love. What I really like about this is that you can make it in advance and freeze it for later consumption. It’s actually an easy dish to make, I wonder why I have never tried to make it before.
I’ve been buying cabbage recently and it is mostly added to soup dishes that Z’s nanny cooks. Then I remembered something that my parents used to cook when we were kids so I called my Mom and asked her how the cabbage rolls were done. I initially thought it was lettuce rolls. On the other hand, lettuce can be used for this, too.
