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 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...
