Reanaclaire Cooks Fish With Lemon Juice And Lemongrass

YES, REANACLAIRE COOKS AGAIN! In fact I am now more frequent in the kitchen, preparing my meals especially in the late afternoon.  My neighbour must be very surprised to hear my "ching ching chang chang" sounds of the kuali and ladle after a bout of quietness.  hahahaha... 

What I normally do nowadays is taking breakfast and an early dinner.  No more in-between lunch as those days.  I must cut down a meal since the weighing machine has been showing two kilograms more lately.  Two meals is more than enough for me as I am not a gym lover or showing any keenness in exercising.  If I have breakfast and lunch, my dinner will be just a mug of instant oats.... Well, am I really that disciplined???? hehehehe... So far, so food good......

I went to the SPPK market and had Basil leaves meat noodles again!
And I bought some fish and greens in the market soon after.... 
No lunch or whatsoever in between.... 
And in the evening around 4pm, I start preparing for dinner.... 
This time I steamed a pomfret with lots of lemon juice!
And decorated it with lemongrass, one mini chilli and fried garlic.... 
Steamed it for about ten minutes or so.... 
Looking at this picture now... 
and wondering why I did not put these two slices of lemon on top of the fish.... 
Why were they at the side?
Beats me!
But to my delight, the taste of the sauce turned out so-very appetizing!
Just like the one I ate in the Thai shop...
Only thing is, my sauce is too little...
Lesson learn: Put more water and add in big onions as well.... 
Well, a meal cannot be complete with some greens, right!
My favourite okra with dried shrimps and sambal... 
With two dishes, my early dinner was served.... with a plate of rice as usual....
And I finished them.... 
 All By Myself!!
*burp*

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....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

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...
