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.....
We can shake hand, me is lazy most of the times...ReplyDelete
*high 5* to you!!Delete
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.ReplyDelete
hahahaa.. I guess just my parents-in-law cook it.. now both are no more here... and I "blundered" the recipe.. the sauce must be thick and sticks..Delete
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..ReplyDelete
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..Delete
when I saw "mixed fish cum meat paste" I thought I going to see Yong Tau Foo recipe.. you haven't seen how I cook, then you will know what is called lazy XDReplyDelete
I want to see, Realgunners! :)Delete
You can refer to my latest attempt to make roasted pork. Skip 80% of the usual steps XDDelete
Always cheaper and healthier to cook and eat at home. :)ReplyDelete
Healthier yes... but we have to be more hardworking.. especially during the washing up.. hahaa..Delete
Wah ...cook again ! Looks yummy lehReplyDelete
You miss leh...Delete
I love reading about simple homecooked meals.. RM25 for 5 persons very cheap.. Eating out everyday can kill.. Our meal in Papparich cost RM75 for 2 adults and 1 toddler.. Become Pappapoor liao.. Lol..ReplyDelete
Come to Pappa, eat here, Pappa will become rich... Pappa is the restaurant owner >.<Delete
Really, Papparich is getting more and more expensive, like every time I go, the price increase. RM 8 for a glass of soya bean milk, WTF zzz
I think the Ipoh branch closed down liow.. if not mistaken la... I have been there once only, I think....Delete
I love to eat home cooked meals that were cooked well like what you enjoyed. Really cheaper and healthier. Sometimes friends invited me over and I was stunned at the way they cooked. I just swallowed them with water! WakakakakaReplyDelete
Why shallow them with water? No nice ah? I love eating in my friends' houses... more tasty one!!Delete
Some friends cooked fantastic meals but some should not have invited me laaaa... Sad!Delete
Yup, always very cheap to cook at home, but just the time and hardworking matter, you know sometime...we human can become lazy once in awhile, right?ReplyDelete
Not once awhile..but most of the time I am lazy.. hahaha..Delete
Very nice home cooked meal there! Not only cheaper but I prefer to eat at home. Less hassle and don't need to get dressed up :)ReplyDelete
I dress down not up when I eat at tai pai dong, hehehe.Delete
Me after work always dress down.. shorts and worn out blouses.. hahaha..Delete
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.ReplyDelete
Yes, I try to eat homecooked than outside food.. sometimes really dont know what to eat at all..Delete
Lazy also can whip out nice dishes. :)
If not lazy, then super nice.. hahahaa..Delete
Definitely cheaper...and nicer ...and healthier too. Best to eat at home.ReplyDelete
Agreed... simple dishes also taste nice ..Delete
I like the pan fried fish cake.It is very additive and goes well with rice. Yummm..Guess you are cooking more lately, Claire.ReplyDelete
When the mood is there only, Ling...Delete
Err... you can actually buy fish paste in Ipoh?ReplyDelete
Yes..it is sold in the shop too...Delete
Yummy can 'chi chan' or not?ReplyDelete
I love to cook for my kids as eating outside everyday could be costly.ReplyDelete
Costly and not so healthy too...Delete
