Simple Dishes For A Family Of Four

Marketing in dry and wet market is easily accessible now at the area where we are staying... I do not have to go to the supermarkets in the malls as much as before... Now I know of several shops that sells fresh poultry and another two shops that sell greens and other essential stuff needed for cooking... Well, that leaves no more excuses...

I have to start from the basics again, get used to cooking the simple dishes first and then referring to those chef bloggers for more complicated recipes! hahahaa.. Hold on to those first... One step at a time... as long as no complaints from the eaters, I would take a step further along the way....
Start simple cooking... with greens and meat...
Fried rice with two types of eggs... salted eggs enhance the flavour.... 
the kids love it!
 My boys miss the minced meat with "tong choy"
So here it is....
Simple greens...
 Sweet sour "skinless" fish after frying...
hahahaa...
Four dishes this time...
They requested for Pumpkin soup...
That one is no more a problem for me...
hahahaha...
And... as usual..... A"welfie" before the eating starts.... 
Mission accomplished!

  2. Hahhhh!!!! The fish got stuck to the wok eh? Skinless! Hehehehehe!!!!! Pat it dry with some kitchen towel, heat the wok till very hot, pour in the oil and wait till it is very hot...let the fish down into the oil slowly - do not move it till the spluttering sound has subsided - in the meantime, use the ladle to splash some of the oil onto the other side of the fish. Push gently till it comes free...and then, flip to fry the other side. No problem one, sure will not stick...so your fish will still have skin! :D :D :D

  9. I like your cooking. Very homey. Yes, simple dishes they were.

    I always prefer marketing in wet markets than supermarkets. Cheaper and fresher.

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
