Homecooked Dishes For Just You And I

HOMECOOKED DISHES FOR TWO...

Both of us are small eaters... I mean small rice eaters but when it comes to dishes, we eat "big" portions.  Don't know when my girl adopted a habit of eating vegetables more than meat, gone are the days when my kids chose meat over vegetables.  Now it is the other way round and the older one, yours truly have to end up eating the meat instead of the young.

As the saying goes, if I can't beat them, I have to join them... join her, I mean.  I won't be surprised that she will go vegetarian one fine day.... Now that she is home, I have to make sure she has enough protein but once she starts working outside, meat will be the last dish she would pick and eat.  When it comes to dinner, she prefers homecooked food compared to outside food and most days, we do our dinner together in the house.

Some of the dishes are super simple that they do not qualify to be posted up here.  LOL... Below are the more "complicated" ones.... so try imagining the simple ones, porridge with sweet potatoes or one wok cook with everything dumped inside!  So easy and simple unlike the below... LOL...
Steamed fish with garnishing, lemon juice, tomatoes, lemongrass, ginger...
As for the greens, it is long beans with eggs.... 
Bought half free range chicken to steam... 
Greens mixed are Okra and Siew Pak Choy with some wolfberries for "decor."
One of my friends told me that all greens are dull looking.. 
Must put a bit of wolfberries to add some colour to the dish!  :)
As for the steamed chicken, guess who ended up eating most of it?
On one occasion, I had the mood to do braised pork ribs with raddish... 
So happy she liked it!! 
We had a small bowl each to ourselves and shared the asparagus without sambal.. 
This is a meal for three.... my friend came for dinner.... 
And we had hairy gourd with glassnoodles, 
Minced meat with stinky beans aka petai cooked with blended ingredients 
such as lemongrass, garlic, ginger and tumeric... 
Eggs with tomatoes is my girl's favourite... 
And "Pang Pei Tau" aka green peas soup... 
Good for eyes vision, it seems... 
So... 
What shall we have for dinner tonight?

  4. Steamed fish, steamed chicken are the best. I would devour those 2! Lol.

    I still love to eat meats but of course balance up with greens. My girl, only 11 already eat more veggies than me. Lol.

  5. Mama's cooking is always the best comfort food. I'm sure your girl enjoys your cooking very much.

  6. I think your dishes are not as simple as you say! All good coking takes work. And your cooking looks better than many fancy dishes you go out for! nothing beats home cooking. Our Anne Marie became a vegetarian around age 8. She is 11 now, and still sticking to it!

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
