Reanaclaire Cooks Dish With Basil Leaves

I LOVE THE SMELL OF BASIL LEAVES.....According to Nancy, they are easy to grow, no need pampering so since she has lots of them in her garden, I requested for some....Not Some but MORE of these leaves!  Yes, give me more, I said... hahahaha...   But I cannot be too greedy because they might not last that long if I do not use them within a couple of days.  Some people cannot stand the smell of Basil, as for me, I can even eat them in my  noodles soup.

Since I have some minced meat in my fridge, it would be best to mix them with basil leaves among other ingredients.... This dish reminds me of a Thai Dish which I ate in Penang...
Other ingredients such as.... 
Garlic, ginger, cilipadi, basil leaves and minced meat.... 
I sauteed alla the above first except for the basil which went in last.... 
Oh yeah, I added in some white wine too, soy sauce... a dash of salt.... 
Keep stirring and making noise with the ladle....
And the dish is ready to be served!
Yes, it was a dry version... keep it that way.... 
Best eaten with white porridge... 
Dinner for two is served... 
Two steamed dishes and one hot spicy dish!
*My portion of rice*

  3. Looks yummy!

    Mamarazzi once gave me a pot of basil plant, for us to enjoy cooking with but alas... it didn't survive for long.
    No more fresh basil at home!

  4. Claire, I think you cook just as good as the restaurants you eat at!! I LOVE basil too! I love the smell, and put it in everything, even soup. But I have never tried fresh, always use dry in the little jar. I need to try the fresh this summer!

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

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

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
