It’s back to school again and as usual, this mother needs to wake up early to prepare food and help the boys with their own preparation.
To save time, I thought of cooking different dishes but with the same preparation needs.
Last Monday I made my boys different meatball dishes. I just mixed a kilo of ground pork (use your hands!) with pepper, salt, garlic powder, minced onion, chopped carrots and egg. Shaped them into balls, prepared my ingredients, and cooked sweet and sour meatballs for the boys’ lunch.
Some, I made into meatball soup with sayote and sotanghon for breakfast. There were a few meatballs left which I flattened and made into burger patty for the boys’ merienda at school.
With this tactic, I not only saved time but also earned my Big Bunso’s praises because he was so amazed at the fact that one could do so many from just one idea.
It was just the first day of school and I hope to be able to continue this eagerness to wake up early and prepare for my boys.
Happy back-to-school day!
