Just The Two Of Us

Sometimes I do not know what to cook... as the song goes, Just The Two Of Us... what and how to cook? My girl can be quite a fussy eater... she does not like chicken much... she favours fish more than anything else... meat comes second...

Nowadays I buy little bit of this and that.. and after cooking, it became a bit here and there like these...

steamed minced meat plus salted vege (mui choy)
my girl likes this....

little bit of cauliflower mixed with fish cake
added some egg gravy... hahahaa....

two dishes... enough or not??
I am always the one who have to finish all...

Then at times when I am fed up or she is fed up with my cooking, we go out "jolly jolly" eating...

we ordered sliced fish with ginger plus spring onions...

our favourite steamed yam!! drooling now...

ahhhh... both of us can "walloped" these two dishes..
and the bill came to RM23.00 with rice!
Both of us prefer to opt for this..
Lazy Mum is like that.. hahaha....

  1. I don't think cooking for two is an easy task as you have to restrict the serving size of each dish, especially when both of you have a comparative small appetite than others. Eating outside is fine for two and you actually spend less when you opt for more economical choice like... eating at the economy rice stall... hehe. When I ta-pau rice for the family, I will take a larger portion of only one dish for each box of rice. With 3 boxes of rice, I will have three different dishes to be shared out among us. And you know what, I always end up paying less.

  4. But eating out all thetime - not healthy...too much salt, too much msg, too much oil... Just cook a simple all-in-one dish,better. Go out once in a while to give urselves a treat, or as a reward for work well done - then it is more meaningful and something to look forward to,

  9. Cooking for 2 is really tricky. What I normally do is cook enough for 4 or 6.. then I freeze the remaining or just store it in the ref so we can eat it in the day or two. But of course, not all food is still as good as it was on the day it was cooked after a day or so.

    Thanks for dropping by my blog! :)

  15. true, sometimes coocking for 2 can be quite a hassle. Luckily my dear wife does that sometimes, the portions are for two though, and it can sometimes turn out more expensive than eating out.

  16. I rarely get to see food that you made. It looks like you are a really good cook!!

  17. wenn: yeah.. i know u love to cook!


    cleff: yes, my boys are bigger eaters so whatever i cook, sure finished! :p


    betty: great!!


    lydia: hahaha..sorry about that..


    isaac: true, depending on what you cook..but then it is cheaper than what you order outside for the same dishes..


    ginny: something very different from yours!

  18. The first dish looks tasty, it's one of my favourite, hehehe

  19. Cooking for 2 is not easy. Eat out once in a while will be very interesting despite that we might be also ordering 'home-cooked' type of dish. Save time and hassle.

  26. The portion looks big for 2 people. I think if I were the one always have to sapu most of them, I'm not too motivated to cook also. LOL!

  27. After a hard day work we still have to cook st home to save expensive eating out costs..except for weekends..

    ReplyDelete

  30. The Hakka's like steam pork.

  31. Truly understand. My family members like different food and I am having some difficulties myself and at the end cooking 5 dishes so that I can satisfy all.

    When there are only me and kids eating, just fry beehoon, cook congee and throw all the different ingredients in..haha:)

    ReplyDelete
  32. i think it's a balanced between cooking at home and eating out lah.. sometimes you're bored with either one, and really want to have a kick, right?? :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. ann: yeah..hakka-s like that.. but nowadays i try to slow down on pork..


    denesa: *salute* u.. last time i used to cook for 5 too..those were the days.. now i m getting lazier..


    sk: yes, u r very right.. sometimes eat at home.. at times out.. balancing act..

  35. Wah! Your daughter quite healthy yes? Fish is healthier than chicken meat.

  36. Actually if only one or two people, no need to cook. It's like a waste of energy and effort. Better order from a restaurant : )
