Lazy Udon

Throughout all the years I have spent in the food-industry, I came across many folks who proclaimed their jealousy about the fact that I, as a chef, eat better than anybody else they know.
Reading private food blogs, one would assume that this might be the case not only for chefs, but also for food bloggers, since most of the food published at least looks better than what shows up daily on the average household’s table.
While some bloggers are fortunate enough to eat the high level food they publicize on their sites at all times, most of us less fortunate bloggers neither have the time,the money nor the desire to eat gourmet meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner. In my own case, I usually prepare food that is (in my opinion) fit to publish about every other or every third day,  including down to earth comfort food. The rest of the time, I eat the same simple food as most other folks do, although probably prepared with a bit more love and interest in the end result as most home cooks (or chefs at home) will muster day-in and day-out. This however does not mean that the food I don’t publish is poor or crappy.
The meal I had for lunch today is just such an example. I prepare similar noodles quite often, using slightly different ingredients such as different pasta, different veggies and different seasonings (although the seasoning used here is pretty standard for my “Lazy Noodles” dishes). 
At once extremely simple, easy to prepare and cheap, it is at the same time pretty to look at and super yummy. If prepared with love and attention to detail, food like this does not have to hide itself behind any “gourmet” food 🙂
Not that I want to eat like this all the time, but in reality, food like this makes perfect sense as alternative to the high-end stuff.

  1. So true Hans. As a food blogger, I buy whole chickens at a good price, remove the breasts for 2 meals, use the thighs and legs to prepare soup or chicken enchiladas for the elders in my family, and use the broth with vegetables for a night of simple soup- or- split pea- or- bean soup- or transition it to Asian style. Either way.. I can’t keep posting the same thing. But. I do believe in healthy daily preparation from the pantry… No matter how humble and really… Everyone can do this.

    1. So true Peggy.
      After years and 1050 posts and counting, it can get pretty expensive to keep the variety interesting and to feel motivation to do this and spend all the time, effort and $ when most readers are not even nice enough to give you a “like” to make you feel appreciated.
      But then again, one does it for the ones who DO appreciate it 🙂
      Cheers ! Life is Good !
