Auntie Reanaclaire Cooks In Johor

IT IS NOT ALL ON OUTSIDE FOOD and no homecooked food in the house... That is not my intention of going to Johore... *cough cough* ... No doubt the kitchen is small and "mini-sized", I cannot take that as an excuse.  By hook or by crook, somehow or anyhow, I managed to squeeze in a few dinners during my duration of my stay... not only for my kids, dinners for my in-laws as well.  Kitchen utensil are also quite limited but cooking for six or seven is still within my limits and "management"... hahahahaa...

Now I understand why those aunties take lots of food stuff whenever they go and visit their children staying outstation.... My own mother used to do that too, she bought fresh chickens from the market in Ipoh and took these chicks all the way to KL those days.  Look no further now, I am also doing the same thing, minus the fresh chickens , I brought along dry foodstuff instead, ingredients, mushrooms, red dates, Chinese sausages...and a bit of this and that.... *Yes, aunties will only understand*
Yes, I brought along my Sambar powder and whisked up a wok of greens...
A vegetarian dish!
My kids' favourite... from young till now.... 
Our all time favourite and simple dish....
Oh... one dish I dare not enlarged... 
See if anyone can noticed or not... 
hehehehee...
As long as he gives the Thumbs Up, it is all that counts... 
hahahahaa...
On another occasion, we prepared a pot of "Poon Choy"...
This pot of goodness was sponsored and bought from Singapore...
As usual no presentation or garnishing of any kind..... 
Dinner for Six maximum...
The seventh person either have to eat in advance or to eat standing up!
hahahahaa...

  2. Homecook food is simply the best. As long as your kids showed you a thumb up, that all you need.

  6. Very nice meals even with limited resources.

    I remember my aunt brought rice, fish and veggies from Singapore over to Kuching so she could cook porridge for her grandson whenever they came over for holidag.

  9. I look at the photo very closely and I could just make out those two pieces of deep fried fish. Correct?

    Very tasty homecooked meal. Just buy a plastic chair and the 7th person can sit on it and squeeze in between the 6 of you to enjoy a close knitted warm meal together! :)

  11. Ha ha...I think the one you dare not enlarge is the fried fish? No worries, it happens to most of us, me included, ha ha! As long as your kids give you the thumbs up, that's the most important thing. You are doing a great job cooking for 6 people! True!!!

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
