First day of work-AR asked if I was nervous or excited this morning. Funny enough, I did not feel anxious or nervous and went on to prepare for the morning as I would have normally. Probably being a trainee for the past 3 years helped-I suppose essentially, the first days are the same except this time round, I dropped the title of the trainee! Woohoo!! Oh, and get paid of course.
What I will expect the change over time though, is the energy and time require to prepare meals. I need to be more time wise now and prepare quick meals that are nutritious and freezer friendly.
Darn, I think I need a bigger fridge!!
In the mean time, I found this in my folder which I believe will come in handy for us. It’s another one pot dish that utilizes the rice cooker. Easy!! A little luxurious as well as I used dried scallops.
