Reanaclaire's Homecooked Meal

I did some marketing on Saturday and these were what I bought in town ... and my sister whooped up a perfect meal with the stuff that I got for her....
300gms of mixed fish cum meat paste mixed with some minced meat...
Bought in Leong Sin Nam shop...
RM2 of okra with some leftover beancurd....
And of course my so-called "hakka dish" and herbal soup boiled with "old chicken"
Our dinner comes to a cost of around RM25 for 5 persons...
Moral of story:  Very much cheaper to cook at home..
No doubt about that...
The problem is...
Reanaclaire is lazy.... at times... 
OK, MOST TIMES.....

  2. I like homecooked food and best part is everyone enjoy eating it. Though simple but it looks nice. I have yet to cook your Hakka dish. Ask hub but he says his mum never cook it.

  3. wow, that's a very nice meal although i will say "no thank you" (quote STP) to that okra (because i had very bad experience with that when i first tried it, haha!! so no phobia never touch it at all).. i like that fish cum meat paste nugget leh, i alone can wallop the whole plate lor.. and true and not true also, depends on what you cook at home and also the number of people lah.. sometimes it may be cheaper to just tapau chap fan outside..

    1. Yes, if alone especially, just tar pau.. but if want a proper meal, 3 dishes one soup for more people, then cheaper to cook at home..

  11. Only if there are more than two persons eating. It is not cheaper if cooking for just one or two but then you can always eat with your mother and sister so that you can home cook cheap meals.

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
