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..

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

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...
