Reanaclaire Cooks - Cheap and Pricey Meal

I have company at home now... at least for many months to come... so whether I like it or not, I will have to cook more often like I never before... This "tenant" is a simple eater... she can just take oats in the evening and I also have to end up taking oats along with her... I really detest oats as dinner, don't mind if it is for breakfast or lunch... but for dinner is a definite NO-NO...

Alright, so far, I have taken oats once for dinner and I thanked her very much for it.. but "please no more oats for my dinner?".. whether it is pre-prepared or not... once is good enough.... I ended up more snacks and junk food after an oatmeal meal... hahahaa...

As for dinner, as long as it is R-I-C-E, I will love it...
 Simple meal that cost less than RM10... One bowl of rice is consumed...
Porridge cooked in rice cooker...
Salted egg, minced meat and scallops did the job....

And for today's dinner, it was a bit more costly...
We bought two pieces of cod fish from AEON yesterday...
 Pan fried it a bit and topped up with shredded ginger and garlic....
 My colleague recommended me to use good oil for saute-ing my dishes....
So Olive oil it is....
Sauteed the greens with olive oil and pure garlic...
My Salt-less soup.....
Cos I totally forgot about the salt part!!
Anyway.... presenting....
 A Dinner for Two!!
We ended up eating more than our usual  portion...
And after our heavy meal, we walked twice as long than our normal evening walk....
Justified...
(I hope!)

  6. It looks wonderful! I have long known you are an excellent cook, but I think you do not like to cook? I cannot cook more than one thing at a time now. Because if I try to watch more than one, I burn or set food on fire.

  7. Actually you can eat your oats at dinner with "soong" like vege and fish. That's what my friend did - substitute her rice with oats.

    2. Just think of the oats as porridge/congee and you won't be geli.

  8. With the rising prices these days, best to eat at home - cook one's own, can save a whole lot...unless you can find places that are cheap and affordable.

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL... 

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we
