A "cooking" post

What was dinner last night? Stewed duck noodles!

Preparation:
  • One carrot
  • One packet of noodles
  • And one box of frozen stewed duck!

Okay, so it's not quite a cooking-from-scratch post but it does involve turning on the hob and taking out the pots and pans! :P

This is the reason why I love having leftovers in the freezer. Because any leftovers can be turned into a delicious and quick meal with some imagination! Poking around in the freezer last night yielded a box of leftover duck stew. It was only too easy to pop the lot into a pot, slice up a carrot and leave it to heat up.

And while it's heating, boil up the noodles, drain it and voila, a delicious meal in mere minutes!

Competition for the duck noodles hawker!

Lesson: Don't throw away the food you can't finish! It makes cooking life so much easier! :)

Today is duckie's day - it appears twice on PPS. The stewed duck looks yummy and yes I do agree with you on leftovers, they are always good for a next meal and with stews, they just taste better and better.
