Day Two - Beef Strips with Orange and Ginger

Day Two - Beef Strips with Orange and Ginger

What went right
Just about everything today. Orange grating went perfectly and it was easy to clean as opposed to when I had to grate the ginger.
Finely chopping the ginger was easy-peasy.

What went wrong
Carrots were difficult to finely slice as the recipe suggested. I think I need to sharpen my knife.
Noodles got a little burnt. I needed to sort out how to do noodles and a stirfry at the same time.

Day One - Garlic and Lemon Chicken

Day One - Garlic and Lemon Chicken

Things that went well
Erm, it tasted pretty nice.

Things that went wrong
Garlic took a long time to chop and was chopped too big. Overpowering chunks of garlic followed by no garlic.
Ditto lemon wasn't spread out enough.
Rice was cooked way before the chicken due to the time spent chopping the chicken.

So, what is this blog about?

Well, I decided this lent (despite being entirely non-religious) that I would attempt to give up processed food and instead cook my own food for every day. There will be some days that I will be eating out though I expect them to be the exception rather than the rule.

Whether I succeed on this or not remains to be seen but I am certainly going to attempt it!

This blog will catalogue each day, hopefully including the Recipe used along with ingredients and the relative success or failure of that day's dish.

Should I enjoy blogging the nom, I hope to continue and hey, maybe someday someone will even read this apart from me!

So hi, I'm Rach and this is the weekly nom!
