Reanaclaire's Assam Fish And Eggs With Tomatoes

FIRST TIME MAKING ASSAM FISH here in my little kitchen...

I bought three pieces of Red Fish and a packet of Nyonya paste... thought of buying some ladies' fingers aka okra then saw the price RM3.50 for a packet!  I put it back and chose three brinjals instead and what did I get?  The brinjals cost RM4.15... aiyoh, more expensive than the ladies fingers... see, penny wise, pound foolish.. ended up buying more expensive... *didn't feel like putting them back after weighing... self conscious!*

Since my little kitchen is going to close up once again, I tried to "get rid" of all perishable stuff in the fridge.. eggs, onions, garlic, tomatoes... I know my son will not do any more cooking when I am not around... so better use up whatever that cannot keep too long...
And thence the Assam Fish Curry....
Cut up everything...
Sauteed the garlic, big onions, fermented beancurd sauce and Nyonya sauce..
And dump all the vegetables inside after a few minutes..
Add in some water...
*but I ended up putting too much* 
And put in the fish when the vegetables turned a bit soft... 
Anyway... all turn out well and one....
My sons said more sauce is good...
Can drink as soup!!
hahhaaa...
Three eggs beaten well and sauteed with cut tomatoes and big onions.....
And our evening dinner... 
Very simple!
Eaten with our pumpkin brown rice and sambal dried prawns!
When I said Little Kitchen, it really means very mini sized..
Only one person can go in and cook..and that is...
Reanaclaire!

  8. Since they don't cook, so it is pointless to have a big kitchen anyway! Now that you going to stay with them for a bit, maybe is time to redo the kitchen to be bigger. Or get a bigger house! :D

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
