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....
