Homecooked Meals With Mary In Aberdeen

WHEN IT COMES TO MEALS,  it is much cheaper to do own cooking than eating out.  Meaning most of the time, we do our home cooking, breakfast, lunch and dinner.  A lot more frugal this way and of course, can get to taste Asian food especially for people like yours truly here.  My kids and I are blessed with Chinese food cooked by Mary, she is always inviting us over for meals!
Mary's delightful dinner for us....
All smiles before the indulgence.... Mine is the hungry grin! Lol...

Well, what goes round must come round and one evening I invited both of them to come to our place for a simplevdinner.  Homecooking is much cheaper and a better option than eating out.  Over here in the cold weather, I tend to get hungry very fast! Keep looking for snacks and I was so thankful when Mary brought over three packets of her Aberdeen moon cakes made from her own recipe!  She makes them once a year especially for this moon cake festival and orders keep coming in many days before the festival.  I normally don't eat much mooncakes back in Malaysia but Mary's mooncakes are very addictive.  I can easily finish one mooncake at one go!
Mary Moh's freshly baked mooncakes.... Fresh from the oven....
Dinner for six... Just Assam cod fish curry, ginger mushroom chicken marinated in brandy, kale with anchoives and ABC soup....
Before and after dinner.... A cup of Ipoh Hazelnut coffee and mooncakes for fellowship!

  1. The design on Mary's mooncake are very well defined. I note the serving spoon in every dish👍👍

    I love mooncakes but not ones with fatty pork but I have not try snowskin and jelly mooncake. Perhaps, I will get the opportunity to make mooncake in the near future.

    What is an ABC soup? I am only familiar with ABC desserts. Ipoh hazelnut coffee sounds exotic!

  4. You know, you can hardly find fresh from the oven mooncake in Malaysia anymore. Have to go to Aberdeen to get fresh and delicious mooncake!

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...
