Holiday season in another year of the pandemic with travel restrictions means opportunities to look at different ways of resting and re-charging.
Since food is an important part of one’s travel experience, having dishes typical of countries you would like to visit can be a good way of having a bit of the cultural experience.
A Mexican meal isn’t too difficult to make. You can get a tacos kit. You can even get a kit to make the taco shells.
You can also enjoy Spanish churros for dessert. These days you can get churros in the local supermarkets.
A Thai food festival at home is quite easy to put together: Chinese sausages and pomelo yum salad, basil leaf chicken and seafood tom yum soup. For dessert: mango and sticky rice and coconut sorbet.
Since a homecation is meant to be a time for resting, it is probably not a good idea to spend too much time on cooking complicated dishes. The important thing is to have something that everyone will enjoy. A combination of takeaways and home-cooked meals is good to ensure that meals are healthy and that the person who cooks gets sufficient rest to continue cooking good dishes, as cooking requires energy and creativity.
