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...

  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.

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
