My lazy dinner
It has been over a month since I last used my wok because I have been travelling. Now that I am home, it's still very hard to get motivated to cook myself a good meal. Today I improved slightly from being totally lazy, I actually cooked some frozen gyoza, and also some frozen thai style green beans that I bought from Trader Joe's. I also had to make some brown rice to go with my meal. Since the cooking really didn't take too long, I decided to make a nice presentation of the meal using the new white square plates I recently purchased. The green beans from Trader Joe's turned out to be really tasty, however, it is still not as spicy or as fragrant as the belacan we get in Penang. I am not complaining though, since it only took 8 minutes to cook that dish.
To finish off dinner, I decided to use a smaller plate and top it up with some chocolate cake, accompanied with some vanilla ice cream and blueberries. Yummy! Not bad for a dinner that didn't take too much effort to prepare. :)
