Cooking for LAZY ones.

I know… after 3 years of blogging (2 years did nothing, last year kinda active), I never had any cooking post, and yet I am a girl! What a shame. Keep posting all those delicious foods which cooked by other people, where to get it, how much was it.. without realizing that I am not a complete normal girl..without know how to cook. Shame on me!
So, in pursuing a title of ‘complete package of a normal girl’, tadaaaa… here it is. I started with easy peasy lazy style of cooking! *oh Im so proud*.
This is called  – Easy Peasy Lazy Fettucini for lazy people.
It’s very easy and consume a very little of your time to prepare. All you need is;
  • Olive Oil
  • Garlic
  • Yellow Onion
  • Dried mushroom
  • Fettucini
  • Tomato Puree sauce
  • a pinch of salt
  • last but not least.. a desire to cook.

Oh don’t ask me about the quantity of those ingredients. Because it’s so easy peasy lazy, so u can just throw in accordingly to your intuition. I believe in FREEDOM in whatever you do. So does in cooking. OK?

Im using extra virgin olive oil..whichever brand, it’s all up to u. All people like everything extra virgin I guess? Since fettucini is an italian’s, so try to stick to those item used in cooking italian food. Any attempt to localize it by putting Kicap Kipas Udang or belacan.. would be a no-no.
and here I’m using official pasta for Australian netball team (and because Im going to Australia next April, hehe) by uncle San Remo.
This is enough for 1 people, 1 time for lunch and the remaining is for dinner (lazy, remember?)
I like mushroom. especially pre cut ones. very easy to use and makes my cook yummier. If you don’t like mushroom, try to put diced baby carrot (it will make your pasta sauce sweeter) or canned button mushroom.
Remember to soak it soften and to bring back the original condition of the mushroom. Sometimes I think we are heading towards Mars life.. where every food is pre dried and just add water to bring it back into edible condition. I’d love if the technology will come up with pre dried boyfriend. Just add water, and your boyfriend is good to go.
Hmm while waiting for your mushroom to soften, lazily smash your garlic and diced your yellow onion. If you eating this alone, just use half of the onion and 3 stalks of the garlics lah.
Set your small pan with 3-4 tablespoon olive oil (remember, olive oil is very good for health. you can even drink it up. So 3-4 or 10 table spoon of it, no problem). Throw your smashed garlic in…and ahhh the aroma. You must be wondering why I keep using word ‘throw’.. because I really threw them in in a quite distance. Cuz I scared of the hot sprinkling oil ok.
When the garlic turns brownish, you can continue with yellow onion. By this time, those things sizzles with good aroma which make you feel like “ahhh I am a good cook, whoever marry me is the luckiest bastard
While waiting for your yellow onion to turn brown, you can check your fettucini already. By this time, it almost el dante. I don’t know what el dante means, but it was written in the back of the fettucini packet, so I just follow. It only took 11 minutes to achieve it. Oh, don’t forget to put a bit of olive oil and a pinch of salt, it will prevent your pasta stick to each other and add flavor into it.
When everything turns into Chris Brown, brown, it is the mushroom turn to go in.Squeeze excessive water before you fry it. Actually you can put in diced fresh tomatoes at this point of time. Anyway, too bad, Im out of it.
Lastly, put in the tomato pasta sauce in and a pinch of salt to taste. Simmer for 1 minute, tossed dry your fettucini and…
Walla~! get yourself the most pretty plate to serve your pasta out. Pretty fine bone china plates makes food looks tastier. No? Then what the hell they selling those expensive Royale Doulton, Wedgewood, Corningware and Corelle are for??? For some status? Pffttt. anyway, that is the most prettiest plate I have in my kitchen.. hhmmm…

How to call a girl having her lunch in her PJ’s? – A PIG. Anyway, I give my cook rating as – 11.5/10. How about that? Im awesome!

The whole process took about 30 minutes. And if you are lazier than me..can’t wait and prepare anything longer than 5 minutes.. I suggest this is suit you best. What a lazy pig.

I will come out with another awesome cooking in near future. If this time was Italian, and next time will be Carribean Island cuisine called ‘Chicken Pilau’. Heh.. don’t underestimate me okay…Thee hee.
