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.

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
