***This is a sponsored post. As always all opinions are my own and all succulent, spicy exotic dishes were devoured by your truly as well***
It’s no secret. The come down from a holiday (a bloody, FANTASTIC one at that !!!) can crash like a ton of bricks.
And for me, it’s a mix of post holiday blues and a bout of homesickness funk.
I particularly miss the spicy, exotic food.
I remember when every meal was ordered at a restaurant or as room service, I thought, “How AWESOME is it that I don’t have to cook!!???
Then immediately afterwards was the extra joy of discovering that I didn’t have to wash dishes either!!! Yee to the HA!
I don’t know how many times I ate Beef Rendang for no other reason than for my taste buds to do a little tango.
And because it’s a dish that takes up a full day and every pot and pan in the kitchen to cook it, I rarely do.
There’s a LOT of scrubbing after making a pot of authentic Indonesian Beef Rendang.
Washing dishes is the chore I most abhor. I dread a broken dishwasher. It would be my biggest domestic fear.
The unspoken house rule is that I cook and Mr Surfer cleans up after me. Luckily, I’m a pretty good cook because I’m sure there are numerous times he wishes we can bend things a little.
I also think beyond having a great appliance, reliable dishwashing tablets are even more important. Nothing worse than doing a load then pulling out plates that still have residue and gunk. You know?
What better way to celebrate (or commiserate my return) than to host a giveaway???
One lucky reader will kiss dishwashing nightmares away with a packet of Finish Quantum with Power Gel.
These babies have become a mandatory cleaning item in our home. No matter how much I slave in the kitchen, it’s now easy just to load a dishwasher. Well, for Mr Surfer. Heh.
I guess reality isn’t so bad after all.
