There are days when I feel like spoiling hubs so much most especially before baby came. I had more time to do things before and can take all the time to cook whenever I feel like cooking. Though I still get to prepare good and healthy dishes for us, I just don't have the luxury of time to cook in longer period. Before I can take hours if I want to prepare something very special but now I have to do that special dish or dishes in a snap.

Hubs love onion rings so one time I thought of making homecooked onion rings, potato and carrot fries. I made the breading with a mixture of Masa (corn flour), mexican bread crumbs, salt, pepper, lemon pepper and all spice. The beaten egg helped added flavor and kept the fritters nicely coated. I used olive oil for frying, at least a healthier option for oily indulgence.

Now that I'm looking at the photos of the fritters, it's making me hungry! I don't have yet the amount of time to do this dish again because as you all know I am taking care of our precious baby full-time. Perhaps when baby's bigger and ready to try mommy's fritters then I'll find the time to make this once again for all of us to enjoy.

Hubs also loves bread so I see to it I balance our carbs with rice, pasta, noodles and bread. Whenever we have this kind of bread I see to it I try to make a special filling to go with this tasty and crusty-licious bread.

Hubs would usually order tri-tip for sandwich so I thought making a roastbeef cheeseteak style sandwich will delight him. All I needed was a nice chunk of beef and marinated it with soy sauce, worcestershire, A1 steak sauce, pinch of sugar, salt, pepper and steak spices. I drizzled it with olive oil and just pan roasted. Cheese need not to be a special kind, it's just a regular quick melt. I had to use whatever I have in my kitchen. This is how I do fastfood my way =)

    Yum! Yum! That certainly looks like something to die for! Drool! Drool! No time? Maybe you can have a look at some of the things I cook - simple, yet nice...but dunno whether you can get the ingredients where you are. If it's a lot of work, don't expect me to cook - I'm basically so very lazy! LOL!!!
