Reanaclaire Cooks - Arrowroots With Sausage

Woke up early on a Sunday morning and did some marketing. It has been a long time since I last carried a basketful of greens and meat in my hands. Now that my mom has passed on, there would be no home cooked food as often as those days. From now on, I have to start cooking more often if I do not want to eat out.   *Mother, I still miss you very much... *

Since it was a Sunday, I decided to boil some soup and one dish for dinner.  I bought one cut up pumpkin, some tomatoes, carrots, potatoes, big onions.... but when I came home, I realized that the pumpkin was missing.  Either the lady didn't put it together with the rest or I must have dropped it but I think that it must be the former.... the pumpkin was left out and I didn't want to drive all the way back for a RM1.40 pumpkin.
The poor pumpkin being left out in my ABC soup in the end.... 
Just carrots, tomatoes, potatoes, big onions, dry scallops and some crushed pepper...
Saw some Arrowroots sold in the market...
Bought 4 for RM1.20...
Sliced them up and arranged them like the above....
Then cut up a chinese sausage.... 
I added in some sugar and soy sauce.... (Like them sweet)
And  steamed it for 10 minutes or so.... 
Soon the soup was ready.......
And with these dishes, I "walloped" a big plate of rice....
Finished up all the arrowroots and sausage...
Gulped down 2 bowls of soup...
And a 29 inches Waist is Born!

  2. arrowroots only appear during CNY, quite hard to find now. Homecooked 2 bowl of soup + 1 dish + 2 plate of rice = priceless satisfaction!

  3. Arrowroot, the one they fry like chips? Missus planted some once. Not a fan of it that way and not something I am familiar with. I wonder what it tastes like cooked like this.

  4. Isn't arrowroots seasonal mostly during CNY or maybe I am wrong. I like it fried with chinese sausage too and that bowl of soup is nutritious.

  8. Congratulations on the meal you cooked. Looks like it turned out great. I would imagine if you live alone, it's hard to prepare meals, unless you freeze a lot and use later, which would also save a lot of cooking later. Have a great week. Cold here this morning. Today I'm going to make a large kettle of Beef Vegetable Soup, it seems the more it's warmed up as left overs, the better it taste. Since daughter and granddaughter that has lived with us for the past six years, moved out, it's harder to cook again for two.

    1. Yeah, so you understand my situation right! But eating out too often is also not healthy.. so I try to minimize the ingredients...

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...
