Reanaclaire Cooks - Steamed, Sauteed And Boiled...

I HAVE BEEN COOKING FOR THE LAST FEW DAYS... very simple homecooked food, fit only to feed simple people like me.  ahemmmm... I like rice, at least once a day if possible, rice is carbohydrates, very fast put on weight if not careful.  Needless to say, I have not been very careful for the past few days, I took rice for lunch and dinner... though small portions like two big tablespoons and after that, I walked for more than half an hour around my neighbourhood... Justified?  Self-consolation.... LOL...

So what did I whisk up for my meal?  One soup, 2 dishes....
My first dish that was steamed together with my rice... 
One free ranch chicken thigh that cost RM7...
Marinated it for an hour with salt, soy sauce, pepper, chinese white wine and ginger... 
Okra with french beans and Chinese Goji... 
Meatless Beetroot soup with carrots, red dates and goji..... 
And my Simple Lunch Meal is Born...

  2. I like your beetroot soup the most. I heard Beetroot need to combine with carrots no matter for juice or making soup.

  4. Very simple basic food but I know that it is very tasty. Rice only two tablespoons per meal is considered very small portion lah. So no need to exercise until gila2 LOL!

  9. Nice simple home cooked meal's always the best! I've never tried boiling beetroot soup. Does it take long for the beetroot to soften? Is it a little bit like white radish?

    1. I boiled for one hour plus..it wont soften like old melon but softer than before boiling... Beetroot is to detoxify.. anti oxident or something like that... good for us..

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
