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😆

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...
