Reanaclaire Cooks - Steamed, Sauteed And Boiled...

I HAVE BEEN COOKING FOR THE LAST FEW DAYS... very simple homecooked food, fit only to feed simple people like me.  ahemmmm... I like rice, at least once a day if possible, rice is carbohydrates, very fast put on weight if not careful.  Needless to say, I have not been very careful for the past few days, I took rice for lunch and dinner... though small portions like two big tablespoons and after that, I walked for more than half an hour around my neighbourhood... Justified?  Self-consolation.... LOL...

So what did I whisk up for my meal?  One soup, 2 dishes....
My first dish that was steamed together with my rice... 
One free ranch chicken thigh that cost RM7...
Marinated it for an hour with salt, soy sauce, pepper, chinese white wine and ginger... 
Okra with french beans and Chinese Goji... 
Meatless Beetroot soup with carrots, red dates and goji..... 
And my Simple Lunch Meal is Born...

  2. I like your beetroot soup the most. I heard Beetroot need to combine with carrots no matter for juice or making soup.

  4. Very simple basic food but I know that it is very tasty. Rice only two tablespoons per meal is considered very small portion lah. So no need to exercise until gila2 LOL!

  9. Nice simple home cooked meal's always the best! I've never tried boiling beetroot soup. Does it take long for the beetroot to soften? Is it a little bit like white radish?

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
