My Homecooked Dishes For Four

Days when I do not take outside food, my homecooked meals are very simple.  Give me a plate of fried rice and I am satisfied with my dinner.  That goes the same with my girl too...
 
She loves Salmon to be eaten with fried rice...
Nowadays she helps me to cook in the kitchen 
And both of us are very contented with a plate of fried rice in our hands...
 Last Sunday I managed to whoop up a dinner for four....
No elaborated presentation...
I am hopeless in that... LOL....
No tomatoes... so it was just diced ginger on fish... RM20
No carrots ... so it was just dried shrimps with cabbage...RM5
No eggs ... so the Spam is just Spam alone.  RM15
The meal came to approximately RM40 for 4 people..
Not too cheap too, right?

  3. I am hopeless in presentation too. With that steamed fish alone, I can finish a whole plate of rice easily. Main point is everyone is full & satisfied.

  4. That fish plus that spam, how to be cheap leh? You can try my fried rice recipes...so you will have something different everytime. Otherwise, you will get bored of your fried rice after a while,. I'm sure.

    1. Cabbage looks fine, nothing much one can go with fried SPAM slices...fish is ok too but for me, that's a lot of ginger there - I usually cut into long thin strips and add a bit of chopped garlic to counter the fish smell...and add sliced chili and Chinese celery sprigs or chopped spring onions for a bit of colour.

    2. Yes, will certainly try your fried rice varieties! Must keep more things in the fridge.. mine is very limited stock.. eggs also need to replenish one of these days! hahaha...
      Cabbage is overdue one... so the colour looks out already.. I put diced ginger because my girl doesn't like the bigger slices than that.. she will push it aside... but with diced, she will eat.. hahaha...

  10. I know you must be a wonderful cook, Claire! I have seen what you cook in the past. And your palate must be very refined from eating out at so many different places. I would love to taste your cooking. We also love salmon and rice, I cook it from time to time.

  12. When there is fish on the menu, the price won't be cheap. As long as the food taste good, I don't mind how it looks like so no need for presentation. I like to eat salmon so your fried rice and salmon is very tasty to me. Your dishes for four look very filling, yum yum.

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

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

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...
