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.

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger!

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
