My Almost Vegetarian Meals For The Day

MCO MEANS ......... 

It is all about food posting when it comes to MCO, no traveling, no meeting up with friends, no gatherings, none of this and of that.... so it is all about what we cook and what we eat at home... LOL.... 

Yesterday I just cook one dish, yes, I cook dhall again, I opened a new packet of Australian dhall.  This time I soaked it and then blended it manually.  I have this small gadget whereby I can dice my onions, garlic and whatever need to be diced.  It is so useful and I don't know why I have kept it for so long until only recently I took it out and used.  I couldn't even remember who gave it to me!  Or perhaps it was a free gift... not sure, next time I will show it in a post.  All I have to do is to pull the string and the dicing will be done after a few pulls.  I bet some of you know what gadget I am talking about... LOL... 

Coming back to my dhall, this time I used french beans.  Why french beans?  Cos I have a full one kilo of them, bought from the market which cost only RM3!  I wanted less but the lady said take one kilo la, only RM3!  Imagine one kilo of french beans, I have to eat how many rounds of that.... LOL... Bought a packet of fresh santan and I cook this pot of vegetable using dhall, kaffir leaves, curry leaves, dry chilli, carrots, ginger, tumeric powder, cinnamon stick and lemon.  

I cooked the potatoes first before ending in the other greens last.... 
This time it was less spicy... and more thickened in gravy....
I can just drink the soup cos it is sourish and a bit spicy.... 
My neighbour gave me a plate of her Ju Hu Char...
My favourite dish!
My lunch.... 
And for dinner, my neighbour gave me a plate of glass noodles...
So nice of her.... 
Looks like it was a vegetarian dinner... 
The smaller bowl is Acar from Pantai Remis...
All vegetables... but I really don't mind the varieties!

  1. We had a dish like that today, Friday - our no-meat day but we fried one ikan bawal hitam and had them together with rice.

  2. I love your lunch with your own cooked dhall! Looks better than the ones I am having now. Love that you are eating more vegetables. More fiber! Why the French beans are so affordable! Only rm3 for 1 kg, what a good deal!

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

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

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
