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.

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

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....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
