Again And Again...

Though my house do not have any small young kids or toddlers, nevertheless, I still cook like I have them in the house. Maybe I am used to cooking this dish when my kids were young many years ago. Till today, I only know a selective dishes only, not like Pete, he puts me to shame in cooking .. hahhaaa... he is such a good cook... I really have to learn from him and many of my food bloggers here....

Salvaged my fridge and found two potatoes only, so instead of slicing them, this time i cut into small cubes, to make it look plentiful ... lol..... then I minced up the meat and add in 2 tomatoes as well. Well, little little bit added in, it became a dish, enough for me and my girl...

from young, my kids love this dish till today...
Andy used to remind me to put more "chap"
make it more watery so that he can "loe" his rice
(at times he drank it too!)

no need to add any oyster sauce..
just add a bit of sugar and some light sauce..

my girl loves cabbage & crabsticks...

Again and again, these dishes are the only ones I cook :)
