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.

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....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
