Let's Wallop At Home!

My first home cooked meal for my kids in 2013! Yes, finally I have managed to cook a meal for my three kids during this CNY!!  (A very rare occasion and achievement if you know me by now.... LOL... .)

Early morning I went to the market to get the fresh stuff that I need... fish, meat for soup, green vegetables and for desserts, we had Durians!! Well, each time Aaron comes back to IPOH, he will crave for this King of the Fruits... and he was so happy yesterday when he managed to buy the whole lot of 9 fruits for only RM40!  Good BUY, he said.. hahahaha... 

And now... what did this mama here cook for her three grownup kids?
Nai Bak... mini organic greens...
Steamed Talapia... it weighed over one kilogram.... only RM14...
Sweet flesh cos it was very fresh....
Fernie ate most of it including the fish head!
Mixed sourish vegetables... (chap choy)
ahhh...this one was "contributed" by my SIL.... love this dish very much!!
the meal is only complete when there is soup all round...
I boiled watercress vegetables...
with red dates, mutt choe (sweet dates) and dried oysters....
Aaron bought a "treasure box" for me...
Golden Chef New Zealand & Australian Abalone....
Slices of the abalone for the broccoli...
(this is not fine dining... naturally I failed in the deco!)
Durians for dessert and as for me, 
I love to take them together with my rice...
That's our lunch....
Come... say Cheese....
and  Let's Wallop!!

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

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! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

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...
