A No Frills Dinner At Home For Four

NIGHTS OF HOMECOOKED DINNER FOR AARON AND MYSELF... ever since he came back to Ipoh since Tuesday. Oh sorry, only on Tuesday evening we went out for dinner and that too, was a homely type of meal... From Wednesday till today Sunday, we had our evening meal at different homes.... and out from the five nights, I cook TWO times!

Yes, two times is considered a record in a matter of five days... hahahaha....  My girl was back too and that makes four of us... *Andy, you got to put on the bibs first... your turn is coming soon!!*

A No Frills dinner at home.... own home.... 
Reanaclaire's cooking, no joke!
Not sure what dish this is called... 
My girl wanted broccoli, I wanted okra... 
In the end, the dish turned out this way!
Steamed two skinny and skinless "kampung" chicken drumsticks....
with red dates and wolfberries...
Somehow after steaming, the deco turned out this way.... 
But the sauce is sweet from the chicken and red dates flavour...
Sauteed some organic greens with olive oil and garlic..... 
Panfried Salmon with fresh lemon juice... 
Steamed Golden Promfret with tomatoes and lemongrass and lots of ginger...
Wonder why it is not so watery...
Do I need to add water to the plate?
Not necessary, right?
Oh, why two types of fish?
The Reason.... is..... because.....
My girl loves fish and dislikes chicken!
And since Jaya Jusco offers good prices on Fish every Thursday, 
I ended up buying three different types... 
All are only RM10 per piece... 
Cheap, kan?

  3. I am not good at cooking except eating. I have seen China's chefs adding some water while steaming the marinated fishes and they would open the steamer few times to scoop the gravy onto the fishes to make them sweeter and tastier.

  6. Mommy's homecooked food is the best! I like your steamed pomfret, but usually mum will fry it, and I will eat a lot of rice with the fish oil alone, hehe..

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

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...
