Buried Under The Green Green Grass Of Home

COOKING MODE IS ON IN REANACLAIRE'S KITCHEN...

When I have the mood, I would cook a scrumptious meal for the family... Yes, that only happens  when the lazy mode is not around.  My dishes have no frills and fancies, not refined at all, my presentation is very "rough"... in cantonese, it also means "choe loe"... To have a refined dish, I must go for "patience" cooking test....  then perhaps my dishes will be more presentable... and one of the dishes I am going to show here, it is over and beyond presentable.

Saw fresh Golden Pomfrets for sale in AEON and I bought one home for only RM12.00.  Dug my fridge for some condiments such as lemon, lemongrass, big onions and 101 only fresh chilli.   Great, just enough for me to do a Thai style steamed fish.
Just look at my beauty.... with makeup and all the deco.... 
Now I realize that what's missing are some tomatoes... to go round as well.... 
Never mind... next time perhaps.... 
The next thing I did... was to "bury" my beauty.... 
I think my kids will "faint" if they see all these "grassy" stuff!
With lots and lots of Greens....
Sorry, I do not know what these are called!
Until now I still do not know what I bought.... 
But they certainly blend well with the fish... 
Steam it well for 15 minutes or so..... and after that..... 
VIOLA!!!  
My One Dish Meal is Done!!
So..... 
Anyone dare/care to join me the next time? 
*All lari kuat-kuat*
hahahahaa....

  1. First 2 photos, the fish is a beauty.

    I also want to faint when I scrolled down and saw what you add. Haha.

    Hmm. The green looks like parsley. Or is it coriander? I usually add those green after the steam for that added smell.

    But lovely done, Claire. I salute you. Am sure your kids have no complaint and eat it.

  3. My one dish meals look way worse than yours, so I have no problems to join your for dinner. Maybe I'll carpool with PH. I pick her up in KL and join you in JB. XD

  4. As long the cook is hygienic, I am more than happy. An additional bonus if the food is delish.


    The farmer whose house I am staying in this rural village have made some nice edibles but she is not hygienic. Flies hovered around food, work surfaces and water. There are things growing in the fridge and in bottled stuff. I am not kidding.

    She offered me water melon and the flies swam around it.😳

    Get me out of here!

    2. I left the farm yesterday. I am still on the Aegean Coast of Turkey.

      Perhaps, these are healthy flies, lol. I had not been sick yet. I must have more friendly gut bacteria than most people😆

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....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
