My Homecooked Dishes For Four

Days when I do not take outside food, my homecooked meals are very simple.  Give me a plate of fried rice and I am satisfied with my dinner.  That goes the same with my girl too...
 
She loves Salmon to be eaten with fried rice...
Nowadays she helps me to cook in the kitchen 
And both of us are very contented with a plate of fried rice in our hands...
 Last Sunday I managed to whoop up a dinner for four....
No elaborated presentation...
I am hopeless in that... LOL....
No tomatoes... so it was just diced ginger on fish... RM20
No carrots ... so it was just dried shrimps with cabbage...RM5
No eggs ... so the Spam is just Spam alone.  RM15
The meal came to approximately RM40 for 4 people..
Not too cheap too, right?

  3. I am hopeless in presentation too. With that steamed fish alone, I can finish a whole plate of rice easily. Main point is everyone is full & satisfied.

  4. That fish plus that spam, how to be cheap leh? You can try my fried rice recipes...so you will have something different everytime. Otherwise, you will get bored of your fried rice after a while,. I'm sure.

    1. Cabbage looks fine, nothing much one can go with fried SPAM slices...fish is ok too but for me, that's a lot of ginger there - I usually cut into long thin strips and add a bit of chopped garlic to counter the fish smell...and add sliced chili and Chinese celery sprigs or chopped spring onions for a bit of colour.

    2. Yes, will certainly try your fried rice varieties! Must keep more things in the fridge.. mine is very limited stock.. eggs also need to replenish one of these days! hahaha...
      Cabbage is overdue one... so the colour looks out already.. I put diced ginger because my girl doesn't like the bigger slices than that.. she will push it aside... but with diced, she will eat.. hahaha...

  10. I know you must be a wonderful cook, Claire! I have seen what you cook in the past. And your palate must be very refined from eating out at so many different places. I would love to taste your cooking. We also love salmon and rice, I cook it from time to time.

  12. When there is fish on the menu, the price won't be cheap. As long as the food taste good, I don't mind how it looks like so no need for presentation. I like to eat salmon so your fried rice and salmon is very tasty to me. Your dishes for four look very filling, yum yum.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
