What I Cook And Eat In San Jose

BACK TO SAN JOSE... after the festive Thanksgiving.... and soon it will be Christmas!  I wonder what feast will lie in store by then, no turkey for sure... There were some turkey leftovers and I put them all into a pot and made it into a Chinese dish which is called Chap Chye or Chap Choy in Cantonese.  Not only the turkey meat, I put in ham as well... I wonder how many of us put in turkey and ham into this dish!  LOL... 

The days flew by again... taking care of my grandboy, sometimes leaving no time to prepare food during lunch time.  We resorted to Door Dash also commonly known as Grab food in Malaysia.  They also give discounts, sometimes 40% capped at $10, whereas nowadays Grab gives 50% discount cappted at RM12.50 which is a good option for online delivery instead of going out.

Our Poke Lunch.... 
And when I have time, I do this....
Here is my Turkey/Ham Chap Chye.... 
I cook it early morning using instant pot...
And by lunch we can have these.... 
Two other dishes are Door Dash...
Fried Rice and Orange Walnut Chicken....
The portion asre so huge that they lasted till dinner as well!
On hardworking days, I do two dishes... 
Fish in pickled sause and mixed veg...
Yes, normally two dishes and soup is a bonus.....
Minced meat with potatoes, fried eggs and watercress soup...
Homemade roasted pork and yam dish.... 
with beetroot soup...
On really hardworking days... homemade Nasi Lemak!!
LOL... 
No Choice... have to really do them from scatch except for the chicken  curry...
I used Tean paste which is really really super spicy!

  4. It is a handful to take care of baby so understand the food delivery during busy days. Great way to dispose the turkey leftover ya. Ham chap chye is appetizing.
