A No Frills Dinner At Home For Four

NIGHTS OF HOMECOOKED DINNER FOR AARON AND MYSELF... ever since he came back to Ipoh since Tuesday. Oh sorry, only on Tuesday evening we went out for dinner and that too, was a homely type of meal... From Wednesday till today Sunday, we had our evening meal at different homes.... and out from the five nights, I cook TWO times!

Yes, two times is considered a record in a matter of five days... hahahaha....  My girl was back too and that makes four of us... *Andy, you got to put on the bibs first... your turn is coming soon!!*

A No Frills dinner at home.... own home.... 
Reanaclaire's cooking, no joke!
Not sure what dish this is called... 
My girl wanted broccoli, I wanted okra... 
In the end, the dish turned out this way!
Steamed two skinny and skinless "kampung" chicken drumsticks....
with red dates and wolfberries...
Somehow after steaming, the deco turned out this way.... 
But the sauce is sweet from the chicken and red dates flavour...
Sauteed some organic greens with olive oil and garlic..... 
Panfried Salmon with fresh lemon juice... 
Steamed Golden Promfret with tomatoes and lemongrass and lots of ginger...
Wonder why it is not so watery...
Do I need to add water to the plate?
Not necessary, right?
Oh, why two types of fish?
The Reason.... is..... because.....
My girl loves fish and dislikes chicken!
And since Jaya Jusco offers good prices on Fish every Thursday, 
I ended up buying three different types... 
All are only RM10 per piece... 
Cheap, kan?

  3. I am not good at cooking except eating. I have seen China's chefs adding some water while steaming the marinated fishes and they would open the steamer few times to scoop the gravy onto the fishes to make them sweeter and tastier.

  6. Mommy's homecooked food is the best! I like your steamed pomfret, but usually mum will fry it, and I will eat a lot of rice with the fish oil alone, hehe..

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
