Cheesy Seafood Macaroni
(Pic 1: Cheesy Seafood Macaroni; Pic 2: Along, 2nd place in her class for year 2008)
I have been sick for one week. For what reason, i had no idea. The head is throbbing, the nose is runny, bad cough, and bad sore throat. I have been on medical leave for two days now and hoping to be able to return to work tomorrow as i'm very worried about the students who are facing the final exams very very soon. When i woke up this morning, there was not much in my pantry and fridge to cook for my breakfast. Along is not schooling, she kept on telling me that she was hungry and i felt so weak to drive for some food for both of us. Thank God hubby had sent wawa to the babysitter earlier this morning. If both of them (Wawa and Along) were around, they kept on arguing over anything that the house had turn into some niosy place that i can't bear. But if they are not around, i miss the arguments, crying, shouting sound between both of 'em. Huhhh that's the beuty of having kids i guess. When i peeked into my pantry, i saw 2 packets of mac n cheese by san remo we bought from Cold Storage One U last month. There were a few cans of baked beans, and some sardins. These will do, for today....instant pasta will do..for a sick mother...and her lovely daughter...
CHEESY SEAFOOD MACARONI
1 packet of instant mac n cheese by san remo. I haven't tried another brand. I am a san remo's loyal customer.
1 camb of butter
1 cup of fresh milk
2 cups of water
6-7 prawn - peel the skin
3 sticks of crab meat - cut into 2 cm stick
1 tomato - diced
2 camb of fried garlic
1. In a non stick pan, heat the butter. Then pour milk, water and mac n cheese. Cook until the macaroni is tender. Add water if necessary.
2. When the pasta is tender, add the seafood and cook for a while until the seafood is cooked. Add in the diced tomatoes. Stir. Do not add more salt as the san remo mac n cheese is salty enough unless you are really a salt-person.
3. When its done, sprinkle some chopped English parsley and fried garlic when serving. Delicious.
Today for breakfast, Along and i had some of this cheesy seafood pasta, some baked bean which i heated in the microwave, some bread and scrambled eggs. Guess these can keep us going until hubby come home in the afternoon for lunch. Sedihhhnyaaaaa...
