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!

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....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
