Reanaclaire Remembers *Far Kau*

IT WAS A NO FRILLS HOMECOOKED MEAL with my kids yesterday... (presentation is not always there) hahahaa...

It was as early as 7am that I woke up and ran an errand for a friend and since it was super early, I went marketing to get some stuff for dinner... I suddenly remember that I have not used any of my "far kau" (fish maw) which I bought from US, in fact I totally forgotten about them until I rummaged my fridge!  tsk.. tsk... And...  since there were two extra "eaters" in the house yesterday, it was the perfect time to whoop up the special soup before they go off again.....
Our early dinner at 4.30pm... 

Steamed eggs with minced meat.... 
Blanched broccoli as requested by my girl....
Nyonya Assam Fish... 
This time I bought one whole fish *Ikan Senangin* 
And our "Far Kau" chicken soup with red dates, wolfberries and some slices of ginseng..
My girl was asking what is "Far Kau"...
Then I told her about the HK series "Line Walker" ...
Immediately she recalled and ended up drinking and eating all of it.... 
*One lesson learnt... I must not put too many pieces.. *

  5. Mum's homecooked food is always the best even without nice presentation. Fish maw soup, my favourite. Best is all family members can get to sit down & have a nice dinner.

  9. I like to eat blanched broccoli too. Why not put too much? Did the soup turn out to be very thick? I did not know that there are fish maws made in USA. Thought most of the fish maws are from China.

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
