Reanaclaire's Assam Fish And Eggs With Tomatoes

FIRST TIME MAKING ASSAM FISH here in my little kitchen...

I bought three pieces of Red Fish and a packet of Nyonya paste... thought of buying some ladies' fingers aka okra then saw the price RM3.50 for a packet!  I put it back and chose three brinjals instead and what did I get?  The brinjals cost RM4.15... aiyoh, more expensive than the ladies fingers... see, penny wise, pound foolish.. ended up buying more expensive... *didn't feel like putting them back after weighing... self conscious!*

Since my little kitchen is going to close up once again, I tried to "get rid" of all perishable stuff in the fridge.. eggs, onions, garlic, tomatoes... I know my son will not do any more cooking when I am not around... so better use up whatever that cannot keep too long...
And thence the Assam Fish Curry....
Cut up everything...
Sauteed the garlic, big onions, fermented beancurd sauce and Nyonya sauce..
And dump all the vegetables inside after a few minutes..
Add in some water...
*but I ended up putting too much* 
And put in the fish when the vegetables turned a bit soft... 
Anyway... all turn out well and one....
My sons said more sauce is good...
Can drink as soup!!
hahhaaa...
Three eggs beaten well and sauteed with cut tomatoes and big onions.....
And our evening dinner... 
Very simple!
Eaten with our pumpkin brown rice and sambal dried prawns!
When I said Little Kitchen, it really means very mini sized..
Only one person can go in and cook..and that is...
Reanaclaire!

  8. Since they don't cook, so it is pointless to have a big kitchen anyway! Now that you going to stay with them for a bit, maybe is time to redo the kitchen to be bigger. Or get a bigger house! :D

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

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...
