Homecooked Meals With Mary In Aberdeen

WHEN IT COMES TO MEALS,  it is much cheaper to do own cooking than eating out.  Meaning most of the time, we do our home cooking, breakfast, lunch and dinner.  A lot more frugal this way and of course, can get to taste Asian food especially for people like yours truly here.  My kids and I are blessed with Chinese food cooked by Mary, she is always inviting us over for meals!
Mary's delightful dinner for us....
All smiles before the indulgence.... Mine is the hungry grin! Lol...

Well, what goes round must come round and one evening I invited both of them to come to our place for a simplevdinner.  Homecooking is much cheaper and a better option than eating out.  Over here in the cold weather, I tend to get hungry very fast! Keep looking for snacks and I was so thankful when Mary brought over three packets of her Aberdeen moon cakes made from her own recipe!  She makes them once a year especially for this moon cake festival and orders keep coming in many days before the festival.  I normally don't eat much mooncakes back in Malaysia but Mary's mooncakes are very addictive.  I can easily finish one mooncake at one go!
Mary Moh's freshly baked mooncakes.... Fresh from the oven....
Dinner for six... Just Assam cod fish curry, ginger mushroom chicken marinated in brandy, kale with anchoives and ABC soup....
Before and after dinner.... A cup of Ipoh Hazelnut coffee and mooncakes for fellowship!

  1. The design on Mary's mooncake are very well defined. I note the serving spoon in every dish👍👍

    I love mooncakes but not ones with fatty pork but I have not try snowskin and jelly mooncake. Perhaps, I will get the opportunity to make mooncake in the near future.

    What is an ABC soup? I am only familiar with ABC desserts. Ipoh hazelnut coffee sounds exotic!

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

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... 

Freshly Baked With Love From Breadlady

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing.... Brown paper bag with this slogan... Freshly baked with love...  The pies were still warm when they were delivered to right to  my doorstep with no extra charge... So nice! This was my lunch on Saturday.... I like the buns too...fresh and soft... One is filled with cranberries and apple.. And the other one is
