First of all, I want to thank everyone of you who commented on my post yesterday. After I published the post, the internet was down!! When I got up this morning, I was overwhelmed by all the get-well wishes. I’m very touched by your love, care and concern and most of all your friendship. You are very much appreciated. As I have said before, blogging has added so much fun and excitement to my life, not only in what I post everyday but the many wonderful friends like you and many others that I have met all these months.

I’ve gained back more energy but my stomach had not fully recovered yet. The doctor told me to take it easy for 48 hours. Well, to look at the positive side, I must have lost all the weight I had gained during the festive season. But what I went through was really frightening. I’m so glad it’s over.

My children cooked Teriyaki Salmon Jacket Potato for their lunch when I was down with a severe stomach upset. I was resting the whole day in bed and I was eager to know what they had for lunch so I asked them to take some pictures to show me. Wow…..it was very good I thought, except no vegetables!! They argued with me that the potatoes are vegetables! Quite right….hmmm.

I cooked Teriyaki Salmon (click here for recipe) the day before and there was some left over so they used that for the jacket potatoes. Here’s what they did, simple and delicious looking. They said they liked it, something very different from what I always cook for them. I wish I could have a bite of it to taste! They will have to cook for me when I fully recover.

Baked potato

Baked potato

Wash and bake the potatoes at 200 degrees Celsius for about an hour, depending on the size of the potatoes. The best is to poke with a fork, and then rub with oil and some salt but it’s obvious my children didn’t do that because they didn’t ask me.

Grate some cheddar cheese and break loose the teriyaki salmon with a fork.

When the potato is cooked, remove from the oven and cut a cross on top. Add some butter, salt and pepper. Then top it up with the teriyaki salmon and cheese.  Enjoy a lovely hot meal.

If you were young and your mom is sick, what would you cook for yourself? Please share, add and comment in the comment box below?

Oh yum, Asian flavored jacket potatoes. Hmm, I can’t remember mom being sick. But when nobody cooks for me, noodles are best bet.

cheah  on January 7th, 2010

That’s nice and quick. Don’t remember what I cooked for my mom when she was sick. As for myself, whenever I’m sick, I’ll just sleep and eat cream crackers!

anncoo  on January 7th, 2010

Very creative and nice. I can only remember I cooked porridge for my mum when she was sick. And whenever I’m sick, my husband will be the chef of the kitchen.

potatoes with salmon looks good! wish u a speedy recovery!

Mary  on January 7th, 2010

@Divina - Glad to hear your mom is very healthy. Ha….my girls would love you. They would cook noodles everyday if I don’t stop them :P

@Cheah - Crackers? Haven’t try that. I wish I can sleep but I’m not one to stay in bed. I love to be up and doing stuff. Probably time to learn :D

@Anncoo - My hubby was not at home to cook for me. I know what he would do. He would keep serving me lots of water!!!! Can’t remember how many times he called back to check whether I drank water :D

@Noobcook - Thank you. I have recovered a lot. Hope to be back to my normal food very soon.

Katherine  on January 7th, 2010

What a tasty and quick meal to make. Jacket potato and salmon would be a great combination.

kristy  on January 7th, 2010

Aiyoyo, so delicious lol! Hope you’re getting better now. Guess, you’ve ate too much already during the festive season. hahaha….

Angie@Angie's Recipes  on January 7th, 2010

Trissa  on January 7th, 2010

Hi Mary! Glad to hear you are on track for recovery! Your kids are so cute cooking for themselves and taking pictures - they are future bloggers?!

Mary  on January 7th, 2010

@Katherine - Looks like it’s a fast meal and not greasy all over. A surprise cooking from my children.

@Kristy - Ya, must have been too greedy during the festive season :D What a way to lose weight!

@Angie@Angie’s Recipes - Me, too. It’s such a lovely Japanese sauce.

@Trissa - I’m sure glad that I do. A lot better today. I’m surprised that my children took quite nice pictures, quite similar to my style….thought that’s quite amusing :D Hope they’ll be inspired to start a blog.

Cookin' Canuck  on January 7th, 2010

Way to go, kids! Mary, I’m glad to hear you are on the mend. As a kid, I also made baked potatoes and topped it with whatever we had in the house.

Sushma Mallya  on January 7th, 2010

yours deliciously  on January 7th, 2010

Glad you are feeling better Mary. I love your baked potato with butter, salt and pepper..

Mary  on January 7th, 2010

@Cookin’ Canuck - I think I have to learn to eat more potatoes. Looks like it’s easy to prepare a meal. It’s cheap too. Maybe my chiuldren should cook once a week :P

@Sushma Mallya - Thank you. I wonder how it tasted like. My children said it was delicious. Hope they’ll cook for me when I fully recover.

@Thas - Thank you. I’m really glad it’s over and feeling better today. I’m glad that my children learned to cook otherwise they have to order takeaway :D

@Jeannie - Thank you. Ya, am really glad I’m feeling better. Hope my appetite returns soon.

@Anna - Yes, I’m really glad that my ordeal’s over. Now I’m hoping my appetite returns fully soon. By the way, wonder what is ‘YURRUUULLL’? I just wonder whether it’s a new language…sure new to me….hmmm

@TasteHongKong - Thank you. Sure, I will.

@yours deliciously - Thank you. I’m glad that I’m feeling better today. Hope my appetite returns fully soon so that I can try this dish which looks delicious.

Last night my husband was telling me how he loves salmon and I should cook salmon more often. I said I don’t really know a good way to cook it other than grill… then I thought of your blog. I’m going to try some of your salmon recipes this year. My hubby will love me even more. :)

Natasha - 5 Star Foodie  on January 7th, 2010

The potatoes & teriyaki salmon sound yummy! I’m glad you are feeling better today. When I was about five or six, I cooked a breakfast cream of wheat (was my first time cooking using a stove by myself) for my mom when she was sick. I forgot to salt it but that was easily remedied when serving :)

unconfidentialcook  on January 7th, 2010

Thank you so much for stopping by, and please do come again. I love your potato jacket–I ususally fill mine with roasted broccoli and cheddar. Next time: Salmon teriyaki!

joylicious  on January 7th, 2010

sigh I just want to give you a big hug Mary, I can feel your discomfort from here :( My mother never got sick, I was the one who was always down with something. She would make me black skinned chicken soup or a ginger broth with rock sugar for sore throats and congestion — I would definitely make you some chicken soup if I were there with you :) Get to feeling better!

Mary  on January 7th, 2010

@Sook - I fully support you cooking more salmon for your hubby…2010 will be a year of great marriage…food helps :P Hope your hubby loves the salmon recipes. My family loves them. I hope to learn more salmon recipes this year.

@Natasha - 5 Star Foodie - Thank you. I do feel better except that my appetite hasn’t really returned. Wow….you are fantastic…cooking for your sick mom when you were only 5 or 6 yrs old!! That’s just phenomenal! You are absolutely amazing.

@unconfidentialcook - Thank you for visiting too and also your comment. With broccoli and cheddar…sounds delicious too.

@Joylicious - Awww…Joy, you are always so sweet! Thank you very much. Love you. Wish you are my neighbour!I was really so helpless and scared. Never had such a bad tummy upset. But so glad it’s over. Hope to get my appetite back soon.

pigpigscorner  on January 7th, 2010

Teriyaki sauce with anything is yummy! What a great idea serving with potatoes. Get well soon =)

rebecca  on January 7th, 2010

3hungrytummies  on January 8th, 2010

Glad to know you are well enough to get back to the stove :)

Mary  on January 8th, 2010

@pigpigscorner - Thank you. My children have to cook for me when my appetite returns :)

@Rebecca - Thank you. I do hope they will be good cooks :)

@3hungrytummies - Thank you. Yes, I’m back to cooking. Miss my kitchen :D

penny aka jeroxie  on January 8th, 2010

Great that you are getting better and back into the kitchen :)

Shirley  on January 8th, 2010

Mary, I think you can safely take a “Mom’s day out ” and let the kids cook once in a while.
Lol I know what you mean by marriage being “long suffering” My hubby does exactly like yours. Serve me plenty of water and keep checking if I needed more! Lol!

Mary  on January 8th, 2010

@Penny - I’m really happy to be back to the kitchen cooking. Miss my kitchen :D Hope my appetite returns though.

@Shirley - Yes, I should. In this cold weather I think my children will stay in and cook something hot. I think I should leave it to them to cook more and give myself more breaks :P We do have a wonderful husband that’s cute in many ways :D
