Reanaclaire Cooks - Cheap and Pricey Meal

I have company at home now... at least for many months to come... so whether I like it or not, I will have to cook more often like I never before... This "tenant" is a simple eater... she can just take oats in the evening and I also have to end up taking oats along with her... I really detest oats as dinner, don't mind if it is for breakfast or lunch... but for dinner is a definite NO-NO...

Alright, so far, I have taken oats once for dinner and I thanked her very much for it.. but "please no more oats for my dinner?".. whether it is pre-prepared or not... once is good enough.... I ended up more snacks and junk food after an oatmeal meal... hahahaa...

As for dinner, as long as it is R-I-C-E, I will love it...
 Simple meal that cost less than RM10... One bowl of rice is consumed...
Porridge cooked in rice cooker...
Salted egg, minced meat and scallops did the job....

And for today's dinner, it was a bit more costly...
We bought two pieces of cod fish from AEON yesterday...
 Pan fried it a bit and topped up with shredded ginger and garlic....
 My colleague recommended me to use good oil for saute-ing my dishes....
So Olive oil it is....
Sauteed the greens with olive oil and pure garlic...
My Salt-less soup.....
Cos I totally forgot about the salt part!!
Anyway.... presenting....
 A Dinner for Two!!
We ended up eating more than our usual  portion...
And after our heavy meal, we walked twice as long than our normal evening walk....
Justified...
(I hope!)

  6. It looks wonderful! I have long known you are an excellent cook, but I think you do not like to cook? I cannot cook more than one thing at a time now. Because if I try to watch more than one, I burn or set food on fire.

  7. Actually you can eat your oats at dinner with "soong" like vege and fish. That's what my friend did - substitute her rice with oats.

    2. Just think of the oats as porridge/congee and you won't be geli.

  8. With the rising prices these days, best to eat at home - cook one's own, can save a whole lot...unless you can find places that are cheap and affordable.

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
