Now I will introduce some food I used to prepare every day.In the morning,I always heat up leftovers for breakfast between ten o’clock and eleven o’clock,which is also for my lunch.This is because I’m in between jobs at the moment so I can use my time freely.While it’s time for cooking in the evening,I usually thought about what I want to eat in dinner, then I looked up the recipes by my phone to find out the ingredients and seasonings I should prepared.This is a nice process so I would get yummy food by myself.
