Auntie Reanaclaire Cooks In Johor

IT IS NOT ALL ON OUTSIDE FOOD and no homecooked food in the house... That is not my intention of going to Johore... *cough cough* ... No doubt the kitchen is small and "mini-sized", I cannot take that as an excuse.  By hook or by crook, somehow or anyhow, I managed to squeeze in a few dinners during my duration of my stay... not only for my kids, dinners for my in-laws as well.  Kitchen utensil are also quite limited but cooking for six or seven is still within my limits and "management"... hahahahaa...

Now I understand why those aunties take lots of food stuff whenever they go and visit their children staying outstation.... My own mother used to do that too, she bought fresh chickens from the market in Ipoh and took these chicks all the way to KL those days.  Look no further now, I am also doing the same thing, minus the fresh chickens , I brought along dry foodstuff instead, ingredients, mushrooms, red dates, Chinese sausages...and a bit of this and that.... *Yes, aunties will only understand*
Yes, I brought along my Sambar powder and whisked up a wok of greens...
A vegetarian dish!
My kids' favourite... from young till now.... 
Our all time favourite and simple dish....
Oh... one dish I dare not enlarged... 
See if anyone can noticed or not... 
hehehehee...
As long as he gives the Thumbs Up, it is all that counts... 
hahahahaa...
On another occasion, we prepared a pot of "Poon Choy"...
This pot of goodness was sponsored and bought from Singapore...
As usual no presentation or garnishing of any kind..... 
Dinner for Six maximum...
The seventh person either have to eat in advance or to eat standing up!
hahahahaa...

  2. Homecook food is simply the best. As long as your kids showed you a thumb up, that all you need.

  6. Very nice meals even with limited resources.

    I remember my aunt brought rice, fish and veggies from Singapore over to Kuching so she could cook porridge for her grandson whenever they came over for holidag.

  9. I look at the photo very closely and I could just make out those two pieces of deep fried fish. Correct?

    Very tasty homecooked meal. Just buy a plastic chair and the 7th person can sit on it and squeeze in between the 6 of you to enjoy a close knitted warm meal together! :)

  11. Ha ha...I think the one you dare not enlarge is the fried fish? No worries, it happens to most of us, me included, ha ha! As long as your kids give you the thumbs up, that's the most important thing. You are doing a great job cooking for 6 people! True!!!

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...
