An Oil-less Homecooked Meal In Melbourne

With only a bottle of table salt, how nice can our meal turn out to be? LOL...

 We went to an Asian supermarket to buy a packet of noodles and a bottle of salt. I didn't buy any oyster sauce or something similar cos we are not going to stay a long time and I don't want to waste the spices. Instead I bought a packet of tomyam packet to cook it on the noodles.. and this is what we came up with for our evening meal.

Oh, this meal is without oil as well... that also I want to save money on buying oil just for one or two meals.  LOL....

First I steamed the giant fresh scallops...with the sauce that came out from the scallolps, I used it to fry the noodles and added in some giant prawns.

Then I used the tomyam paste to fry the remainder of the noodles with green vegetables...

My girl pan fried the salmon.... without oil.... with a non stick pan, it is not so much a mess.. hahaha...

Lastly, I blanched the cauliflower and broccoli and stir fry them with the scallops and prawns.... put in some water and let it stew for awhile...
And ta....da....our lunch is born!  LOL...

  3. Yes, yes, cut down on oil, leave out salt and msg...you'll be surprised what wonderful tastes and flavours you will begin to sense - all used to be drowned out before by all the seasonings used.

  6. Healthy meal. Very good move to use the water from steaming the scallops to fry the noodles. Taste of seafood goodness. There should be a little oil coming out from the salmon. Sometimes I just put a chicken thigh with skin on into a wok without any oil and covered it and just cook it like that and when I open the cover the chicken thigh would be covered in its own oil. No need to buy oil at all.

  7. I spot cherries and strawberries to end the meal as desserts, really a delicious and balance meal.

  10. So interesting to cook something Asian away from home. I used to buy ready mixed sauces and cooked for the Americans in USA. They loved it and praised me as excellent chef! LOL.... They didn't know I poured all the sauces direct from sachets and bottles - no cooking skills!

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
