My Dishes For Chinese New Year Eve

GONG XI GONG XI.... 

This year Chinese New Year Eve reunion was different from the previous years.  For the first time in history, I did all the cooking!!  For many days before the real day, I did some serious homework and research, wrote down what I needed to buy and getting some tips from the "cooks."  When the real day finally arrived, a few dishes were "born"... from Reanaclaire's kitchen.  LOL.... 

Started the eve of CNY early by preparing all the ingredients needed... most of the time were spent washing and cutting..... cooking them is easier...  Now looking back, I am amazed at my late mom, she really did a lot for our whole family plus extended ones during festive season.  How she managed to cope up with endless dishes without any complaints is a real wonder!  Now it is my turn and I only did less than half she used to cook....  

My dishes for the eve of Chinese New Year....
Opened a can of abalone and added in Chinese cabbage and broccoli... 
A vegetarian dish... 
Steamed chicken... 
Ju Hu Char... special request from my girl...
Chicken soup with pig stomach... 
Now looking back, I only cook five dishes....
Not much but a Big accomplishment for me!  LOL... 
4 dishes and a pot of soup in fact...
And yet I felt so exhausted by the end of the day!  
Today is the 8th day of CNY.... 
Not too late to wish my readers... 
A Happy And Blessed Chinese New Year!!

  4. You have made a real feast! So many dishes, and such good variety! Seems I cannot cook even two things at once without burning something.

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
