My family on the other hand like to catch me off-guard. When I feel like lazing around, they insist on coming over. Impossible to tell mum that I don't feel like welcoming the family for at once she will flip upside down. So as an obedient daughter, I said okay. But a big rush in the kitchen trying to prepare a meal. Thank god I had all the ingredients to make Fried rice which I know they will be happy with.
Of course kids these days will flip too if there's no fried chicken. That too was possible with the chicken bought during the weekend.Honeydew Melon Cake). Again all the ingredients were at home except for the melon. I had no choice but to wake up my other half who was sleeping to glory after watching football till late night. He grumbled yet he too didn't want mum to flip. Won't be a nice scene when mum is unhappy. Food was ready, the family happily eat and I think mum was equally impressed.
