Faking It Part II.

Like what I've mentioned before, If You Can't Do it, FAKE IT ( no idea what I'm talking about? Read Faking it Part I here!). I have another one here. You know, mothers are expected to be superwoman. You come back from work, you boil the water, you cut the veges, cut the watever, go and pick up your son, then you need to listen to the nanny complaining that your son is naughty, then you rush back, cook rice, cook fish, cook chicken, cook vege, cook soup. That's not all.

Feed your son, wash the dishes, dump clothes into the washing machine. Then wash dishes again, then bath your son, put clothes on for your son, then "on" Barney for him to watch, Mop the floor, remove clothes from washing machine and dump into the dryer and put in another load of clothes into the washing machine and .....finally you bath.

Tiring? Not enough. After you bath, your son pooed in the diaper. Clean him again. And then he complain and he want you to play colour colour with him (sounds familiar?) Then you make milk for him and then all go to sleep. Now, that's super tiring!

I tell you...everyday like that can DIE you know? Somemore if your husband come back and complain "why this one not nice, that one not nice ...." you felt like you wanna throw the knife right at his eyeballs man. NO NEED!! NO NEED TO DO LIKE THAT!! Haha

We just gotto be smarter abit. Come I share with you something....

Sweet and Sour Chicken

Nice or not? It's yummy you know?

How did I managed to cook this in like 20 mins? Marinate and cook the sauce some more? Hahah That's why I told you. If you can't do it, Fake it!

The secret ingredient is......*drum roll* .....POPCORN chicken!

  1. PopCorn Chicken ( you buy from the supermarket frozen)
  2. Pickle Leeks (or you can opt for vinegar)
  3. Big Onions
  4. Tomato Sauce
  5. Chilly Sauce (Optional)
  6. Mixed Carrots, Green Beans and Corn (Optional)
  7. Salt and Sugar to taste
  8. Corn flour with water to thicken the sauce.

The ingredients are easily found at home.
No need to marinate.
Fast and easy to prepare.

  1. Fry popcorn chicken. Set aside.
  2. Fry the Big Onions, Pickle leeks, Tomato Saude, Chilly Sauce. Add salt and sugar. Add water. Simmer for a while and add corn flour (premixed with water)
  3. Mixed the popcorn chicken into the sauce.
Tadaaa! Fast and easy and Yummy. one need to know that we didn't perform the whole show (marinate and cook it). They just know that it's sweet sour chicken prepared by super mum. Right?

That's all for now folks...Remember if YOU CAN'T DO IT....FAKE IT!
