Reanaclaire Cooks Dish With Basil Leaves

I LOVE THE SMELL OF BASIL LEAVES.....According to Nancy, they are easy to grow, no need pampering so since she has lots of them in her garden, I requested for some....Not Some but MORE of these leaves!  Yes, give me more, I said... hahahaha...   But I cannot be too greedy because they might not last that long if I do not use them within a couple of days.  Some people cannot stand the smell of Basil, as for me, I can even eat them in my  noodles soup.

Since I have some minced meat in my fridge, it would be best to mix them with basil leaves among other ingredients.... This dish reminds me of a Thai Dish which I ate in Penang...
Other ingredients such as.... 
Garlic, ginger, cilipadi, basil leaves and minced meat.... 
I sauteed alla the above first except for the basil which went in last.... 
Oh yeah, I added in some white wine too, soy sauce... a dash of salt.... 
Keep stirring and making noise with the ladle....
And the dish is ready to be served!
Yes, it was a dry version... keep it that way.... 
Best eaten with white porridge... 
Dinner for two is served... 
Two steamed dishes and one hot spicy dish!
*My portion of rice*

  3. Looks yummy!

    Mamarazzi once gave me a pot of basil plant, for us to enjoy cooking with but alas... it didn't survive for long.
    No more fresh basil at home!

  4. Claire, I think you cook just as good as the restaurants you eat at!! I LOVE basil too! I love the smell, and put it in everything, even soup. But I have never tried fresh, always use dry in the little jar. I need to try the fresh this summer!

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... 

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
