Lockdown Mind And Food

LOCKDOWN MIND...

Today is the third day since I last took my car out for a drive, so this morning I have to do that again.  The night before I have thought of 101 things to buy from the sundry shop.  When I reached there, I could remember one thing only, ie. a 5kg packet of rice.  I told the young boy my problem.... "Give this auntie a minute to recall, ok?"  He reassured me... "no problem, take your time to think, you are the only customer now."  He gave me some hints, flour, eggs... bread...fruits?  And then I suddenly remember, yes, for baking, then my 101 things came to my mind.  LOL....  One lesson learnt, next time I better write a list!  Or think first before getting out from the car!

My breakfast and lunch consist of the following....
Half boiled egg and a hot cross bun given by my friend... 
She gave me 4 and this was the only piece left for breakfast... 
For lunch, I braised pork ribs with tomatoes, ginger and small chilies... 
Greens as per above with fish cake... 
Two dishes for the whole day.... 
Or perhaps add an egg for dinner...
Simple dishes for the day!

  3. I never make a list plus when I go out to stock up on food, I will not have time to look at the list. I will be running here and there, rushing and grabbing anything and everything. May end up buying things I do not intend to buy and forget what I want to buy in the first place. Never mind! At a time like this, sometimes we just have to do without.

  4. I love hot cross bun. Used to buy from bakery but not every time it has it. Now with the lockdown, it mostly sell bread.

    I give list to my man when he goes shopping. He is in charge of shopping right now. Luckily he has no problem when it comes to grocery shopping.

    Easy to cook for a person or two. Not like me, need to think of menu everyday, fit for all as each has their own preference and taste. Headache.

  5. You were so cute and funny to head to sundry shop with 101 things that dwindled to only 1 item! Muahahahaha

    I normally have to key all these check lists into my phone. No sane person has the brains to remember so many chores and shopping errands.

    I love all your meals. Simple yet tasty and nutritious! Hope you will enjoy staying at home now. I worry that when MCO is over, I want to stay away from office.

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...
