Our Simple Homecooked Christmas Meal

Called up few restaurants in the late afternoon but all same reply, "Sorry, full.." or "Come around 8pm.." Not surprising to hear that especially during the festive season... Those popular eatery places are normally crowded or full.. unless we are willing to wait but stomach usually cannot wait that long.. hahaha... so where shall we go for our food... or what shall we eat..... I asked my kids... and their answer was ....

Yes... Yours Truly ended up folding up her sleeves and tied an apron around her waist... (cough.. cough.. ahemmmm....) 
Spent some time in the kitchen...  and 
some funny dishes appeared...
my kids' favourite dish...
Potato Chicken
my newly invented dish...
Bean sprouts with ladies fingers (Okra)
steamed "golden fish" with ginger slices...
(roughly done.... hahaha.... )
After some minutes...  the final result...
For dessert.... 
Durian cheesecake, Carrot cake and Turkish indulgence..
Phew.... one meal settled.... 
and...The rest of the meals?  
Road side stalls lor...

  3. Nice! Why Andy looked macam not so happy compared to the photo in the earlier post? Muahahahahaha!!!!

    We also had homecooked food at home for Christmas dinner, invited my in-laws to join us. Too much of the good stuff in NZ - time to go back to our simple ways.

  4. Oh my gosh! This is just as beautiful and yummy looking as the fancy foods you eat at restaurants!!! You are such a good cook, nothing like home at Christmas! Nothing is open here on Christmas! Well, I did hear that McDonald's will be staying open, I feel sorry for people who have to eat there.

  14. Merry Christmas Reana!

    That's certainly a homely Chirstmas meal minus the queue and wait at restaurants. Very comforting dish too!

    Never though of okra and bean sprouts together. Will give it a try since I like okra while the hubby likes bean sprouts.
