Steamed Dishes At Home

From Friday till Sunday, I only managed to cook one meal for my kids. The rest of the meals were taken outside... (actually they prefer to... that shows how "fan-tas-tic" my cooking is! Outside food is always tastier)

This meal below was on a Saturday evening, after our badminton session but before the table tennis workout at 8.30pm. Five of us walloped the food below, three of them growing boys so what I did was mostly meat.. chicken meat, pork meat and fish meat.. LOL... Filled them up to the brim so that no supper would be served that night...

steamed golden fish (kam cheong)

minced meat with arrowroots
(ching toong choi chu yuk nga ku)

steamed chicken

this one is a "kampong" chicken

ABC soup-potatoes, tomatoes & carrots

Should be enough, right?


  1. LOL...i guess Cleffairy will be laughing when she reads this.Coz i also steamed my food more that goreng or any other methods...kakaka

  2. U steam, kucing steam.. me oso 'steam' over here... lol.. I always fry one leh!

  3. *pengsan* What's this? You jangkit from smallkucing ah? Steamed stuff! LOL... I'm like Merryn though... I prefer my food to be fried...and roasted! *high 5, O lost one!*

    But of course, lately, started to make soup, cuz that kucing up there influenced me on how to be more lazy when cooking! Wakakaka!

  4. That's a lot of food and all healthy. Are you healthy conscious lately? Btw, I like the soup leh and I'm almost having mum's soup daily here. *grin*

  23. Wow, steamed food. nice whut.. ahaha.. i prefer steamed food. hahaa..

  24. If I'm not mistaken, Merryn is a nyonya descendant, like me... usually nyonya food not steamed wan, Claire... perhaps that explains why we like food that has strong taste, aroma and generous with herbs and spices. LOL... you ask her and see... confirm Merryn will say she loves food that has strong taste. Hence... she would prefer fried food in comparison to steamed, like me. Fried food usually got more strong taste.

  25. what "should be alright?" - it's awesome lah !!

  26. wensher: yes.. we also got steamed.. hahaha...

    cleff: both of u? no wonder so much in common, both of u think alike too, now i m convinced!

    ah ngao: thanks..hahaha..

  27. I also prefer steamed more than fried...after all, my floor wouldnt turn out to be oily after fried fried. Then have to mop mop...another extra work to do..hehhee

    anyway, steamed is healthier too..

  28. oh love that steamed mince meat. yummy oh. hmmm... for me fried or steam ok lah, sapu. i dont cook, so no comment which is better. i jes makan nia. hahahaah!

  29. Mommy is always the best! Cook very nice, yummy and meaty meal for your kids.
