My One Wok Cooked With Come On, Cousin

This morning around 11am, my ex-colleague came to my house with anticipation and excitement... yes, it was kind of a project for her, she is going to have her own BLOG!  Something new and exciting for her and I am looking forward to giving her some "lessons" on blogging... ahemmmm... hahahaa..... Within one hour or so, her Blog is born... and her first post is here.

Her niche is gardening and she brought me some of her organic homegrown "long beans"....
They are purplish in colour....
And I cut them into these sizes....
Bought two chicken drumsticks and marinated one of them for my dinner.....
Put in some scallops too....
While the rice was being cooked, I quickly sauteed the chicken with lots of garlic...
And dumped everything into the rice cooker when the rice is almost cooked...
Soon the aromatic smell filled the house....
And this was what I got....
My One Wok Cooked Meal....
My meal is ready.... 
Oh.. one more minute.... 
Have to switch on the Astro....
And my meal was further enhanced....
Watching and Eating at the same time...
BLISS!!

  1. Hmm....never know organic long bean is purple in colour. Actually 1st time saw it. How's the taste? I used to cook long beans rice. Usually I fried the long beans with dried prawns & mushroom till fragrant then put in the rice cooker to cook.

  3. We love eating in front of the T.V. and never eat at the table anymore. Unless we have company. You really cook good home cooking. I am headed to check out your friend's blog!!! I know how hard it can be getting followers when you are just starting.

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...
