Cook-Whatever-In-Fridge On A Beautiful Sunday

WOKE UP EARLY IN THE MORNING only to realize that I did not make any plans with anyone for today.... Oh dear, what am I going to eat this morning?  I have not try driving out myself, still no confidence as yet, after today, I will have to consider "re-learning" how to drive again.  My last drive was four months ago!

Back to my morning, I quickly got up and rummaged through my fridge... I remember having a bit of this and that but I need to make sure.  Of course, I can just make a phone call to my siblings or friends, they are just a tinkle away.... ahemmm.... They are wonderful people who have "looked" after my meals each day... but NOW I am going to start to be Independent again where food is concerned.. Need to look after myself since I can walk a bit now here and there....

To my delight, I have these in my fridge.... 
One potato, two chinese sausages, leeks and eggs....
And a new dish is "invented"...
An odd combination no doubt....
But it served my purpose... my Lunch!
I had the soup boiling in no time too...
One quarter chicken, red dates, wolfberries and fish maw *far kau*
Collagen.... Supposedly to be good for my joints?  
My first meal of the day after 12.....
Saved half for dinner...
Maybe I will "fry rice" with the remainder....
UNless I have an invitation later on?
*hint hint*

  1. I would cook that same dish sometimes but without the potatoes and I would cut the leek till very very thin so it will not be so hard to chew.

    Standing up to cook can be quite a strain on your legs, better cook something easy like by steaming...or roasting in the oven instead of stir frying.

    1. My oven is still in the store room.. too heavy to take out... anyway, good to exercise my legs instead of sitting all the time..

  2. Your simple lunch made with whatever you could find in the fridge looks very good. I would be happy with a meal like that.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
