My Main Ingredients Meat, Eggs And Greens

TWO DINNER MEALS...  on two different weekdays last week.... 

I still go out marketing every two or three days, my residential area has a dry market where one can drive into the market cos it is just a rectangle and not many people go there.  Firstly, there are not many stalls and secondly, the prices are slightly higher than those sold in the big markets.  I don't mind paying a few cents higher, it is nearer, cleaner, less people and easy parking.  But of course, the selection is also limited.... 

What I normally buy is meat, chicken and pork, no fish, seafood is out... so there is always no fish in my meals.  

Similar dishes.... meat and eggs are always seen.... 
With bitter gourd...
Homegrown long beans and okra.... 
Diced potatoes with minced meat/fish paste and tomatoes...
My kids love potatoes...
Another dinner meal.... this time with black beans chicken soup... 
The rest of the dishes are similar... 
Eggs with homegrown chives cooked with tumeric powder... 
Anyone tried this before?  LOL.. 
Broccoli with  my homegrown okra... again!
I added in some mushrooms... 
My kids requested for potatoes again...
This time I sliced them piece by piece... 
and again with minced meat...
Chinese dishes are easy to cook 
but only takes more time to prepare and lots to washing up!


  1. How come seafood is out? Because the market doesn't sell fish. I am a potato lover too. All your homecooked dishes look so tasty. I have not tried eggs cooked with chives and tumeric powder before.

  2. By the way i had left comments in all your previous posts too :)

  3. These three ingredients meat, egg, greens are good enough.

  4. You plant so many vegetables? I am getting lazier and lazier, will just go out and buy. Just do simple weeding to exercise and to pass the time.

  5. Yeah my family seldom eat seafood too. :D

  6. I can see why your kids want the potato dish with minced meat; it really looks delicious! I want the recipe!

  7. I love to eat potatoes too! Well done are growing your own Vegetables!

  8. Your dishes all look good to me and if I am invited to join, I will ask for more rice. LOL!

  9. I used to go to a nearby wet market. Less than 15 minutes drive. Smaller but people is friendly. Have not gone to for few months now. Now I just go to nearby shops to get my stuff.

    Nice homey dishes. Yes, Asuan foid is the best. Lol.

  10. You really enjoy doing marketing in the market! I thought once a week would be sufficient. Of all yummy dishes you cooked, I would love to eat this Diced potatoes with minced meat/fish paste and tomatoes...!!

  11. Delicious home cooked dishes. Love the potato dishes too.

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
