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😆

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe

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....

Phil's Fish Market And Eatery, Moss Landing

DAY TRIP TO MOSS LANDING...  I did not know what to expect since I had not been there before.  We took an hour plus drive to this seafood place, it is an open air restaurant whereby you can dine by the sea or inside.  We chose the latter, since it was quite windy in the open air.  With a baby kid, it is best to have some warmth inside the restaurant. Yes, there was already a queue by the time we reached there, it was actually between lunch and dinner and yet, patrons were ready to have their meal.  Though the queue looked long, we could get a place within 10 minutes or so.   Almost the same picture but someone was looking at me when I took these...  Almost reaching the finishing line to enter ... Clam Chowder to start off...  Cioppino... A combination of seafood... Mussels, prawns, crabs, clams...  Eat what the fishermen eat... Dip the bread in the sauce... Yes, I like this... Fried chicken chunks...  And I still prefer the Cioppino compared to this....  Baby enjoying his own food befo
