An Obligation to Cook

Earlier this week spelled exhaustion for me.

In the span of 8 hours, I could barely stay home for half an hour. And each time when I wanted to catch up on Facebook, I had to scoot off within a few minutes to start my "mom/wife taxi service".

So I decided that on such busy days when I am required to cook, I was gonna make dinner ultra simple. I don't even consider it as cooking! So all you mamas out there who claim you can't cook, surely you would agree to my lazy cooking version!

I happened to pass by Cold Storage and bought 2 pcs of smoked duck breast meat at the deli section. One in original flavor for the kids and the other black peppered one for hubs and I.  It costs $3.95 per piece. Got hold of fresh tomatoes to add into my bottled pasta sauce and a packet of spaghetti. And wala! Whipped this up in under 45 minutes.

 
I made some croutons for topping on soup but I didn't even have time to prepare soup!
So I used it as garnish here. (psst, it didn't go well with the pasta by the way.)
The smoked duck is super-delicious! Tender and flavorful.
 
Care to share what do you cook if you are tired out but still want a meal at home?
 
Till the next post, have a blessed week!

  3. The smoked duck breast meat are pre packed? Next time if you are in Marks & Spencer grab a few cans of their delicious soup. Its abit pricey but sometimes they will have promo. We love their soup n ditched Campbell out of our "favourite list" unless we ran out of M&S and have to make do wit Campbell.

    BTW, whats the sauce you use for your pasta?

    1. The duck breast meat is already cooked at the hot deli section at CS. Not pre packed ones though you can get pre packed ones too. Never tried M&S soups before so yeah! Should go look see. Pasta sauce by Prego brand - traditional sauce. :)

  4. Looks yummy! And the kids loved the duck? Usually those hawker braised duck ones are a bit too dry for kids.

    1. Yeah the kids love the duck! Because its smoked duck, the meat is probably cured thus tender and has a unique flavor. Should try it some time. :)
