In And Out Homecooked Food

HOMECOOKED AND OUTCOOKED... A mixture of two... 

I like pumpkin soup, it has its own natural sweetness so there are a few ways of cooking pumpkin.  Boil, steam, braise, sauteed, baked, all these can be done on pumpkin.  For me, I like to boil pumpkin soup, adding in tomatoes, big onions, carrots and chicken/pork... oh yes, must add in some peppercorn for a mild spicy taste.  Sometimes I use pumpkin to cook curry, it thickens the gravy, I like that.

So... on this day, I put the above ingredients into the smart cooker, pressed "soup" and I went off to do my chores.  Within half hour, the soup is done!  Just soup?  Then I did the lazy way out, I went out to get some ready cooked dishes nearby... taking a tiffin carrier, I bought back four types of vegetables and 3 pieces of fried chicken.  My meals for the day is completed!! 

Eggs and long beans in one carrier...
Brinjal and hairy gourd in another tiffin....
Besides the dishes, this shop is also famous for their fried chicken... 
And recently, even more famous from a HK actor by the name of Chapman To....
After his review, now we have to queue for these fried chicken..
No thanks to him... many complained... LOL.... 
To avoid the peak hour, I go at 10.45am to avoid long queue... 
The dishes minus the soup above cost a bit below RM20....
Enough for us for one day....

  4. I also like mix and match of home cooked and bought food. More variety and makes life easier.

  5. The actor's good review is good for the business but it means longer queue for the customers.

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

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... 

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...
