Homecooked Dishes On "Unlazy" Days

TOO MUCH OUTSIDE FOOD IS not-so-healthy and we all know it by now, right?  Nevertheless, we still keep going out for them at least once a day, do we all?  LOL...

When I am in the cooking mode, I can be very "hardworking" in the kitchen.  Nowadays my friends do not make any more comments like "Aiyah, alone also want to cook ah?  Just buy one packet of economy rice will do la..."   Instead when I say I am cooking for myself, they will give encouragement, "Hey, that's good!  Even though simple food, homecooked is still the best choice!"  

I think many of us do prefer to cook in our own homes if we can help... Outside food is very "heavily flavoured" as my friend used to say.  I agree with her... outside food are indeed very unnaturally flavoured and sometimes it is good to just eat something "clear" and "simple-flavoured".....

It has been a long while since I last bought asparagus... and last week I bought half a kilo at the market for RM12.  The lady taught me how to cook them... no need to peel off the skin.. the young ones for simple cooking and the hard stems for boiling soup!  No wastage at all....
My One Dish Dinner
Asparagus, broccoli, red pepper...
I added in ginger, garlic and some thinly sliced meat... 
No oyster sauce or artificial flavouring except for salt and soy sauce.. 
With the hard stems, I boil soup putting in a slab of meat, red dates and goji... 

 The next day for dinner, I cooked the remaining asparagus with basil leaves.... and ginger....
 I just ate this just like that.... no rice.. no carbs... 
 On another day, I bought some fish paste from the shop and prepared these... 
 Steamed some rice and my dinner was served!
Come to think of it, I am Not a Lazy Lady these days.... 
hahahaaa....

  14. It is very encouraging to see you cook. Your dishes look good. I have not tried putting basil in stir fried vegetable dishes. Must be very fragrant!

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
