My Homecooked Dishes On Rare Occasions

How long has it been since I last cook a decent meal? I really cannot remember, that shows how "cook-able" I am, if there is such a word.. LOL...

And it is about time to put on my apron yesterday to whoosh up a meal, a very simple meal actually... but a meal that took a lot of time standing in the kitchen....  *wipe sweat*  and the outcome of the meal was really something to shout about, OK!

After this meal, it will be a long-long while for my next cookery time in the kitchen....My apron will be kept in the kitchen cabinet again for another few months... LOL.....

So what was my Shoutabout meal about?
Fried minced meat with fish paste mixed with eggs....
Took lots of labour cos I prefer to do it manually....
Minced the meat using knife and not grinded ones using machine...
If only I have big onions, it would taste a lot better!
Next... Braised Abalones with blanched spinach!
The tin of Braised Abalones has been "looking" at me for a couple of months now..
So I put the whole tin into the boiling water for a couple of minutes until the sauce is hot.. 
 and poured the whole tin onto the spinach..... 
Steamed a Talapia with Tomyam paste....
Added some salt and sugar to taste... Simple!
No decoration cos I forgot about the parsley and stuff...
A meal must be complete with hot soup...
I better not define what I put for this one...
It sounds gross! LOL....
But the real attraction of the meal is these two dishes.....
One requires lots of work and one requires some deep digging into the pocket...
Anyway, hope my diners have enjoyed their meal.... 
Till another time....  my wok is now being kept peacefully away...
LOL.....

  4. I like the steamed fish and your minced meat with fish paste and egg best. Must be very tasty since you minced the meat by hand with a knife. I am sure your guests eating with you must be very, very satisfied since you opened your can of abalone for them too.

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...

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
