Invitation To A Humble Dinner

AARON is home for a short stay and this time he said he preferred to take more homecooked food than outside food, if we could help it.   The first night we had our homely dinner outside as in my previous post, nothing elaborated or much flavoured... just a simple meal.

And the next day, before I could even think of what to cook for him, my sister-in-law beat me to it.  hahahaha.... She invited the both of us to go over for a humble dinner in her house.... Humble or simple meal, we were all ready to go!  Anything homecooked is Very Fine with us!

When we saw what was laid on the table, I exclaimed... "Wahhhh... this is called Humble Meal?  I wonder how many dishes if it is not a humble meal... hahahhaa... "  We were famished just by looking at the dishes on the table!
Yummy Yam.... my favourite dish!
Sweet sour porkie...
Spinach....
Steamed Golden Pomfret... 
And Lotus soup with peanuts....
So... this was our Humble Meal for the evening...
Indeed we were Blessed for the scrumptious homecoming dinner!

  7. I can understand why Aaron wants to eat home cooked food sometimes. It has mama's love inside! Now I recall back when my mum was alive, I used to visit Penang and my parents often took me out for special dinners until I had to tell her that I wanted to eat at home. Mummy's cooking has the warmth and love inside the ingredients.

    My aunties never invited me to eat at home. I must be terrible. LOL

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

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

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...
