Funny how dust particles never seem to get tired landing on the appliances, on the table, and on the floor.
We've been living without a helper for a couple of years now and hence, I am a full-time and all-around home manager.
When the chores keep my hands tied, I use some of my stock 30-minute (or less) meals recipes ala Rachael Ray to be able to feed my 6 year old son and a picky eater husband.

Cabbage and Meatballs Soup (I got this recipe from a Knorr Pork Cube Package)
1/4kg ground pork
1/2cup singkamas finely chopped
2cloves garlic finely chopped
1pc small onion finely chopped
1pc raw egg
dash of salt
1tbsp cooking oil
3cloves garlic, finely chopped
1pc small onion, coarsely chopped
2pcs Pork Broth Cubes
1/2cup repolyo sliced thinly
*1/2cup carrots sliced thinly (optional)
*1/2cup sayote sliced thinly (optional)
ground black pepper
How I did it:
I combined all the ingredients for the meatballs and formed it into 1inch diameter balls.
I then set it aside.
In a pan, I sauteed the onion and garlic.
I added the water and pork broth cubes then let it simmer.
When the broth is almost boiling, I dropped the formed meatballs one at a time and let it simmer again until meatballs are cooked.
I put out the heat when the added vegetables are cooked through.

Sometimes, I make a variation by adding some misua. I just add a little more water because the noodles absorb much of the broth.
I love it that W loves this dish also. This is a one-pot dish that is very healthy and delicious. =)
