Reanaclaire Cooks - Not-So-Appetizing

Hot weather looming above Ipoh for the past many days already and I lost the battle to the heat... Was on medical leave for the past two days and still not fully recovered.  Despite being on medication, I do not really understand why I have a good appetite.  Thank goodness I did otherwise it would be "disastrous" time for me to stay at home and having oats all the time.  That is definitely sad news...

This morning I felt better but I gave myself one more day of rest before going back to the air con office and might get chilled again.  Since I was yearning for some hot piping soup,  my girl and I went for this special pan mee cooked with spinach....
The lady knows my request by now...
Less noodles... More spinach... 
Price is the same RM4 per bowl.... 
Was sweating profusely by the time I finished this hot soup.... 
For our afternoon tea break, I steamed two types of sweet potatoes.... 
Good enough for the two of us...
As for dinner.... one dish is enough for both of us...
Consists of capisium, tomato, carrot, big onions and some minced meat....
Taken with white porridge with carrots....
Not really appealing or appetizing but it will do ...
At least for me... for now....

  1. Your dish looks better than the pan mee! Throw sweet potatoes into the porridge - will make it very nice and sweet, sure to bring the taste to a whole new level. Nicer! (I would not use the purple ones though - the porridge will turn all purple!)

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

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... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
