Reanaclaire Cooks-Potatoes Meat Patties And Ju Hu Char

MOST DAYS WE DID OUR COOKING AT HOME.... As my BIL used to say, "we are in the land of aplenty"...everything is easily accesible over here in the grocery stalls.  A good thing for me too cos I am all for Chinese food, I would miss my homecooked dishes very badly, they called me a "rice pot" (farn toong) cos I like to eat rice every other day at least!

My day starts off normally with a light breakfast, a long banana or a piece of toadted bread with Skippy peanut butter.  That is it...see, I am a very simple eater.... Hahahaaaa...

After my breakie, I will take out whatever needs to be cooked for lunch and dinner "a 2-in-1" meal....whatever we cook for lunch, they will be for dinner too... 
 
Most of the time, there are at least two dishes and a soup but today, just two enormous dishes....
I made some potatoes with mini sized burgers made from scratch...
Notice that the US potatoes here are softer and more "absorbant" if you know what I mean...
And another dish that I craved for is this...."sengkuang" aka "Ju Hu Char"
My auntie can cook this real good!  And fresh lettuce are available too!
Lastly and not least, we boil some corn and raddish soup as well...
Oh, that is not all... My friend baked this!
Lemon Squares!!
Yummy!!!  Our meal is complete!
When it comes to food, I am very contented cos I can have Chinese and Western over here anytime! :)

  10. I think you found nice potatoes. Honestly they have too many types of pumpkins, apples and potatoes in US until we need to memorize their names and origins. Some are hard like rocks so the folks know which type is for which usage and cooking.

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
