Christmas Food Stuffings In Me

OH OH.... not HO HO...
Yes, this post should be published a month ago... LOL... Nowadays my posts are indeed very backdated, so much happening that I did not have the time to write current happenings, unlike those days when I was still working, I had more time to blog than now I am not working.  As my friends used to call me.. "You are an octopus now that you retire."  I dare not contradict that... LOL...

Back to our Christmas celebration, we had our party in Sg. Buloh... er... not exactly a party, no dancing or singing but more on preparing food and stuffing our tummies.  LOL... Of course, I am not the one cooking, so much to see and learn while I was there.  I kept "ooohhh... ahhhhh.... " only cos everything looks new to me especially Risotti rice!  That day was the first time I ever tasted Risotti, quite embarrassed to say but still I do tell everyone here. 

Christmas isn't Christmas without a nice fat turkey, so someone said.  And so we had one ordered earlier from Jaya Grocer, first time ordering it so we did not know what to expect.  To our delight, the turkey was indeed very succulent, dry on the outside and moist on the inside.  It came with a meatloaf plus cranberry sauce.... And I think it cost around RM300....
Needs some carving done.... 
Together side by side... 
We ladies only know how to pose...  
Like this... 
And like that.... 
The rest of the job...leave it to the Man!
The hostess is a good cook... she made this...
Risotti... 
I thought I would not like it... 
I was wrong... it was very flavourful...
I wonder how this is done... too bad I was not around then... 
Spaghetti Aglio olio... 
Quiche... I took a big piece of this... 
Deviled eggs... also known as stuffed eggs... 
Yummy!!
My first helping without the turkey which is still under the "knife" then... 
Thanks to the cooks on this day... 
I really enjoy all the food stuffings laid on the table!

  2. I want to try that risotti as well. It looks very moist no? So after eating it, it was very flavourful?

  3. Here, we call this rice dish risotto. And it needs to be tended to all the time! Stirred every few minutes wile adding little amounts of water every couple minutes. It is a challenging dish to make, and most home cooks do not. Hurray for you, you got to taste it!!

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

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

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...
