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

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...
