Dishes To Cook For Four

HOMECOOKING FOOD BEFORE THE MOVEMENT CONTROL ORDER....

Before this partial lockdown, my friends and I gather every now and then to have lunch in our own homes.  Sometimes they will bring their food over and at times I go over to their house.  These went on time to time until the MCO refrained us from doing so.

Looking back to my photo folder, I miss these type of food below... LOL...
Four dishes and yummylicious too!
Eggs with long beans and gojiberries...
Fish paste with minced meat stuffed into the bitter gourd... 
My friend's special dish!  I miss this!!
Asparagus with shrimps... 
And some left over curry chicken... 
Great lunch for 4, right?

I wonder when the day will come and we can lead our normal lives again...
When the time comes, we must remind ourselves never to take for granted again...
Treasure our moments together and leave no space for grudges...

  1. Such yummy looking home cooked food! You are so right Claire! We don't know how important things are till we don't have them anymore.

  2. Goji berries in long bean omelette. That would add the sweetness to the dish, right? Never did that before, must KIV and will give it a try one of these days. Who cooked the curry? That looks good!

    Sigh!!! I'm praying that all this will be over soon and we can go back to our normal lives. These are bad times!

  5. Even if mco is over but without a vaccine, can never lead a normal life again without wondering if the person next to you could infect you.

  6. No choice but to patiently wait for our next meal together. Will take some time for situation to return to normal.

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...
