Reanaclaire's Homecooked Meal

I did some marketing on Saturday and these were what I bought in town ... and my sister whooped up a perfect meal with the stuff that I got for her....
300gms of mixed fish cum meat paste mixed with some minced meat...
Bought in Leong Sin Nam shop...
RM2 of okra with some leftover beancurd....
And of course my so-called "hakka dish" and herbal soup boiled with "old chicken"
Our dinner comes to a cost of around RM25 for 5 persons...
Moral of story:  Very much cheaper to cook at home..
No doubt about that...
The problem is...
Reanaclaire is lazy.... at times... 
OK, MOST TIMES.....

  2. I like homecooked food and best part is everyone enjoy eating it. Though simple but it looks nice. I have yet to cook your Hakka dish. Ask hub but he says his mum never cook it.

  3. wow, that's a very nice meal although i will say "no thank you" (quote STP) to that okra (because i had very bad experience with that when i first tried it, haha!! so no phobia never touch it at all).. i like that fish cum meat paste nugget leh, i alone can wallop the whole plate lor.. and true and not true also, depends on what you cook at home and also the number of people lah.. sometimes it may be cheaper to just tapau chap fan outside..

    1. Yes, if alone especially, just tar pau.. but if want a proper meal, 3 dishes one soup for more people, then cheaper to cook at home..

  11. Only if there are more than two persons eating. It is not cheaper if cooking for just one or two but then you can always eat with your mother and sister so that you can home cook cheap meals.

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...
