I made it a mission as of this morning to pack Minh's lunch everyday, and to cook dinner every night! He always jokes about how I'm the child-less homemaker, even though I work hard and pay income tax like everyone else! If the title is "homemaker," I'd prefer to call myself the household management. I do have 3 dogs I consider my kids! ^_^
From what I have noticed, Vietnamese boys are raised to become Vietnamese men who never cook or do housework, ever. They're all Momma's boys growing up! Vietnamese women really do a majority of the cooking, and housework (while also balancing their jobs and careers). It's sad that I've just given up on encouraging the Mr. to do housework. Sometimes it's just easier if I just do everything. Does anyone feel that way?
It's also sad that I start enjoying tasks like laundry, and taking out the trash on trash day!!! lol I almost feel relieved or a sense of accomplishment after chores get done!
Anyhow, I have yet to find my passion in cooking, but I'm starting my search for it right now! I wasn't born with any amazing cooking talent.
I found this super awesome Tuna Salad recipe from the Michelle Money and Lauren Show (love them!) on Youtube.
I also add:
I made it for the first time today, and it's so good! The grapes add a bit of sweetness, and the pickles add a little bit of crunch and taste to the tuna. I put it in a sandwich for the bf for lunch today. I hope he likes it as much as I do!
Today's Sack Lunch Menu:

In other news, I think I will wear MAC Naked Lunch eyeshadow today. :)
