Cooking While Working
I finally got a job a couple of weeks ago so I don't have the time I usually do to cook. I always have wondered how working women here balance cooking with working. It's definitely not an easy task! In Bahrain its much easier because many working women have maids or depend on their mothers for cooking. Here, I wake up at around 7:30 am every day and come back home at around 7:00-7:30 pm. I have a pretty long commute (slightly less than an hour) so I come back exhausted! This has made me obsessed with finding fast, easy yet still delicious recipes. I've been calling my mom a lot and visiting epicurious.com a lot to find these recipes. I want to cook more substantial meals on the weekends that I can freeze for a few days of the week at least, but so far I've either had the flu, or gone to work during the weekend. Hopefully next weekend I'll make something though. I can't imagine what Ramadhan is going to be like!
