Homecooked Dishes Requests From My Master

MY HOMECOOKED DISHES IN JOHOR... 
During the weekdays, our dinners  are usually served at home.   Simple homecooked dishes are requested... "Do not cook so much.. cannot finish..."  That is the usual statement from my son and the statement is very subjective.  Either my food is not tasty or he doesn't want to get fat!  

So what I normally do is to cook less rice and bigger portion of the dishes... and a look that says.. "Finish it or else..... "  LOL...  Anyway, my son always know how to make me happy one.... When he comes back from work and sees the dishes on the table, his expressions and words always lift me high... And I love to believe whatever he says ... whether he means them or not...  LOL... 
 This is steamed eggs with minced pork and "tong choy"... 
Still in the wok is cabbage with "fuchok" and "glassnoodles"
After scooping up, I forgot to take the pic!
On another day, I did the "All-in-One" dish... 
Asparagus, yellow pepper, "yau mak" and minced meat... 
One day he asked for chicken claypot rice... 
Long time no eat, he mentioned... 
And so I did... but not in a clay pot but vision pot...
Chicken, mushrooms, ginger, garlic and dried scallops... 
Marinate for a few hours and sauteed them 
before putting them on top of the half cooked rice... 
Then mixed them up when fully cooked... 
And a simple greens as a side dish... 
And to my delight, a dear one "donated" and added in three more dishes!
All these for the three of us!
How to finish... 
But we managed to finish them all except for the preserved vegetables
which can be kept for the next day.... 
... to be eaten with Roasted Pork Porridge the next day....
That is all from Reanaclaire's humble kitchen... for now..

  4. You are such a good cook, Claire. And you cook so much variety, so many dishes! They also LOOK so good! I think my favorite would be the Claypot Chicken, so soothing and warm.

  5. Chicken claypot rice so pale, no soy sauce? Then, maybe my girl can eat. Soy sauce is not gluten free, contains wheat.

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

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....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
