Lockdown Mind And Food

LOCKDOWN MIND...

Today is the third day since I last took my car out for a drive, so this morning I have to do that again.  The night before I have thought of 101 things to buy from the sundry shop.  When I reached there, I could remember one thing only, ie. a 5kg packet of rice.  I told the young boy my problem.... "Give this auntie a minute to recall, ok?"  He reassured me... "no problem, take your time to think, you are the only customer now."  He gave me some hints, flour, eggs... bread...fruits?  And then I suddenly remember, yes, for baking, then my 101 things came to my mind.  LOL....  One lesson learnt, next time I better write a list!  Or think first before getting out from the car!

My breakfast and lunch consist of the following....
Half boiled egg and a hot cross bun given by my friend... 
She gave me 4 and this was the only piece left for breakfast... 
For lunch, I braised pork ribs with tomatoes, ginger and small chilies... 
Greens as per above with fish cake... 
Two dishes for the whole day.... 
Or perhaps add an egg for dinner...
Simple dishes for the day!

  3. I never make a list plus when I go out to stock up on food, I will not have time to look at the list. I will be running here and there, rushing and grabbing anything and everything. May end up buying things I do not intend to buy and forget what I want to buy in the first place. Never mind! At a time like this, sometimes we just have to do without.

  4. I love hot cross bun. Used to buy from bakery but not every time it has it. Now with the lockdown, it mostly sell bread.

    I give list to my man when he goes shopping. He is in charge of shopping right now. Luckily he has no problem when it comes to grocery shopping.

    Easy to cook for a person or two. Not like me, need to think of menu everyday, fit for all as each has their own preference and taste. Headache.

  5. You were so cute and funny to head to sundry shop with 101 things that dwindled to only 1 item! Muahahahaha

    I normally have to key all these check lists into my phone. No sane person has the brains to remember so many chores and shopping errands.

    I love all your meals. Simple yet tasty and nutritious! Hope you will enjoy staying at home now. I worry that when MCO is over, I want to stay away from office.

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
