Home Is Where Our Hearts Belong...

Home is where our hearts are?  Perhaps I should say this..  where there is food, inside or outside the house, we are joined together...  :)

I took off on Monday to have a long weekend with my kids and for once, I woke up early to go marketing.  Aaron joined me as a "carrier"... yes, he shall carry the weight off my shoulders while in the market... hahahaha...

Before going into the market, we had a light breakfast at a coffeeshop... too bad, forgot to take the curry noodles shared by both of us... and after our marketing, we went straight home and blew the trumpet!  LOL..  The rest of the gang woke up and we went to old town for our lunch....

By the time we reached home, it was almost 2pm and into the kitchen I went... and with some help here and there, we managed to scoop up a dinner by 6pm.... Eat and eat... thus the saying.. Food is where our hearts are....
For starters... ahemmm...
Turnip soup...
Someone told me that they are anti-oxident... 
 My sister "donated" some curry chicken.... 
and I gave her some soup in return... hahaha...
 My kids like "Siew Bak Choy" and I added in a packet of enoki mushrooms..
Made a mistake, added a bit too much water...
 My girl requested for steamed fish topped with Tomyam paste...
I put lots of shredded ginger to take away whatever smell...
 Bought a steamed salted chicken from the famous shop in town...
I cut it up... but the cutting up process was kind of messy!
Ok, here they are anyway.... 
Not nicely arranged yet.. 
 Someone looks like he was already drooling by the time the dishes were laid on the table...
And the "drooler" ended up washing the plates after the meal....
hahahaaa...

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....

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
