It has been raining cats and dogs here in Japan since yesterday. My hubby went to work since morning and would only be back at night today. Since there were only two of us, I was not in the mood to cook anything special. Besides, there was nothing but chinese cabbage and fruits in the fridge today. So, I decided to cook maggie noodles + the chinese cabbage for lunch.
I finished my noodles and went off to the sink to wash the utensils. Then I heard my son announced, 'Mama, gochisousamadeshita ( I have enjoyed the meals, thanks)'. I looked at his bowl and found that the chinese cabbage was left untouched. I asked him, 'Aikk...why did you not finish the vege?' He looked at me with his dreamy eyes, 'Mama, datte men ga sugoku oishikatta mon. Onaka ga ippai desu. (mummy, because the noodles were so delicious, I finished the noodles and now I am full)'. I looked at his tummy and I know he was telling the truth. But what I found most amusing was that he didn't use the words like,' I hate vege' or 'Vege not nice'. I am sure if he chose to say that, he would be getting lectures from me. Because he chose to praise the cooking, he escaped the lecture and instead received a big kiss from mummy for praising her cooking though it was just instant noodles!
