Our Early No-Rice Dinners At Home Cafe, Ipoh

HOMECOOKED FOOD AT IN-HOUSE CAFE...  I am really thankful that I have homecooked food to eat these days.  My friend who stays 20 minutes away from me, likes to call us over for early dinner now and then and I wouldn't mind driving that distance for a good yummy meal!  Sometimes I add in one or two dishes and at times, I just go there empty-handed.  LOL... 

"Home cafe" I used to tell her and for the past few days, I have been there, enjoying her homecooked food.  Now that I am writing this, I am going over for an early dinner again later in the afternoon.  She caters for my needs, early dinner means around 4.30pm and it was still bright when I drive home.  I don't like driving at night nowadays, my vision is not sharp when it is dark.  That is one sign of being a senior now.  LOL... 

The two dinner meals for four....  oh yes, these are "RICE-LESS" meals... not less rice but no rice at all... 
Don't think we can finish all the food if we eat with rice... 
Fried dumplings...
My friend minced the meat and prawns and wrapped them with wanton skins... 
Homegrown Luffa with eggs and black fungus....
Stingray fish and calamari/sotong.. whatever it is called....
Eaten with homemade sambal shrimps.... 
That is one scrumptious dinner!

On another day, the dinner consist of these... 
I brought over some putu mayam and sambal petai.... 
The rest of the dishes cooked by my friend... 
From her garden, spinach... or amaranth it is called.... 
Just blanched and topped with garlic oil... 
Eggs with chives... my favorite... 
Black trotter in black vinegar!
So appetitzing.... 
And this time we had our dinner not with rice but with Putu Mayam!
What an odd combination!
LOL...

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
