My Last Minute Preparation

It has been quite a long while since I last cook, since my FIL's demise, we were eating out, really didn't have the mood to cook. Last evening upon coming home from office, I was still contemplating whether to cook or not to cook. I ravaged through the fridge and found some not-so-fresh cabbage, a long white carrot, a slab of pork meat, 5 pieces of cooked ham, 3 eggs...

With all these ingredients, my simple dinner for 4 persons were laid on the table in an hour or so... Gabriel was our guest for the night and thanks to him, these snapshots were taken.. :p
