Spaghetti Dinner

One of the important responsbilities being a wife (in my personal view) is to cook for husband. There's a chinese sayings that if you want to catch a man's heart, you have to first fill his stomach.

Both me and EG are not locals. The only time we can have home cook food is when we go back Miri (avg twice a year) or when we go back Taiping (avg once a month). Getting sick of eating outside, we have decided that we'll at least cook once in a week, oh sorry, I mean I, not we. :). EG can't cook!

We have decided to cook his favorite Spaghetti this weekend. Standard ingredients: minced beef, tomatoes, onions, garlic, spaghetti (of course!), sausages, capsicum, celery and the most important thing - tomato sauce for pasta.

So I cut everything, fried the onions & garlic first, followed by the beef. Then poured in the tomato paste. Let it boil. Then put in the celery, capcicum, sausages and leave it simmer for another 15 minutes. In another pot, boil a big pot of water and put in the spaghetti for 15 minutes.

And... Ta.... da....... our dinner! Poured a little basil leaves and it tastes simply fan-ta-bu-lous!

OK la I know it doesn't look good in picture again :P. EG had two bowls (I have to recook the spag for him) and gave 8 points. I asked where are the other two points? He answer was - today his full mark is only 8 points. *faint*
