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.

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

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... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
