What's Cooking Mom?

When my mother heard that Aaron had come home, she went for a marketing spree on Friday and bought back a lot of "goodies" to cook for dinner! 

Well, I didn't want to spoil her fun cooking a Big Meal once awhile though I reminded her again and again, not to cook so many dishes... only a few of us but the way she cooks, the food looks good enough for ten people! :) 

Indeed Aaron was the happiest of us all when he saw the abundant food on the table... homecook food for him is really scarce... once our kids are out from home, a simple homecooked meal is a luxury for them...

So what did my mom cook??? 
this dish is a favourite of many.... 
my mom's signature dish... LOL...
Broccoli with crab meat...
Blanched bean sprouts... very fresh and crunchy!
Steamed pork ribs!
my mom steamed three of these fish... 
How to finish!!
Turnip soup...
while waiting for the fish to be ready....
Five dishes plus the steamed fish and soup...
What a glorious meal, I say!

  3. I especially like the first two dishes. I am in awe of your mom!!!! To be able to cook so many things at once...I cannot cook more than one thing at a time or I burn up pots. We burned up three in the last few months. So it is too expensive for me to cook more than one thing at a time.

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
