We spent the afternoon making a quadruple batch of Jamie Oliver’s shrimp wonton recipe with way more garlic, sesame oil, and soy sauce. Six and a half packages of wonton wrappers, two club packs of pork, three bunches of green onions, and four packages of shrimp make 524 wontons, although not all of them found their way into the freezer (we take quality control seriously!). We also cooked two packages of chicken as adobo and five packs of lamb as korma, so there’ll be plenty of home-made frozen lunches throughout the next few weeks. The freezer is full, the laundry is folded, and the computers are backed up. It’s been a good weekend.
We go on these cooking sprints from time to time. It’s so nice to be able to grab a container from the freezer and tuck it into my lunch bag so that I can savour it at work. It takes a fair bit of effort to prepare – we spend much of a day buying groceries and cooking food – but it’s well worth it, and the korma makes the house smell wonderful.
Life is good.
