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!!

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...
