Man’s cooking?

Once or twice a year, my sweeto haato visits her mum and stay for a few days…
I am always happy to see that they enjoy each others’ company during such occasions…
For those few days, I am left to my own devices with regards to food…
The shot below shows yours truly trying to steam some stuff…
Brown rice and sauteed daikon (radish) which was actually pre-prepared by my missus…
And fish, yellow-tail… with vegetables at the far left… my ‘original’…

During one ‘lonely’ weekend, attempted to cook some soup…
The lazy way, actually, where I can literally throw any ingredients I wanted into the iron pot (dutch oven)…
I did this outside, in the garden…
I put in too many ingredients… tofu, mushroom, carrot, garlic, potatoes, onion… more than 10 different types…
(When my missus returned and saw this picture, she couldn’t help exclaiming hidoi… iro ha nai… oishiiso ja nai…   (translation: terrible… no color… doesn’t look delicious…)

And while sorting out the photos, I can across this shot…
Yaki-meishi kai ankake… or fried rice with bamboo-shell clam gravy…
Cooked not by me but by my sweeto haato
Compared to the rather bland concoction in both taste and appearance that I had churned out, it is times like this when I am reminded of my lucky stars to have someone cook so well for me…

  1. I think you cook the same way I do, but at least it gets us through the times our wives are away. Your wife's dish looks appealing and delicious.

  2. It does look quite pale and bland but you can cook! Now the way you describe your cooking experience, it makes your wife's cooking look very delicious indeed.

  3. I think you cook rather well, everything looks good! The last picture looks especially delicious! Hahaha! Your wife cooked for you with love, that is why it is extra special! You are lucky indeed! My hubby can't cook, except maybe instant noodles and fried egg!! Guess what, his father is a good cook! 🙂

  4. Even your all cooking look pale, but all sound healthy and I bet it taste good! Yes, I went to Kyoto and Osaka last week, that was a nice trip, and I enjoyed the foods there so much and made some nice shopping, like pickled Sakura .,which part of Japan are you living now?
