East Meets West

East Meets West

I normally cook whatever I find in the fridge. What I cook also depends on how much pending work I have.   On some days, I will cook up something wacky like porridge for lunch. And for dinner, I’ll just steam some fish and prepare a […]

Our Dinner – Sunday, 13 Jan 2013

This is our dinner tonight….

Chicken bolognaise spaghetti and avocado-organic french beans-cherry tomatoes salad, sprinkled with  organic sunflower seeds and drizzled with Japanese sesame seed salad dressing.

Simple and wholesome and the kids loved it!

These days, I am into making salads as it does not involve garlic/ onion peeling and chopping and no stir-frying too. For busy WFHMs like me, we take the shortest way out, without compromising on the kids’ health 🙂

So happy to see my little one enjoying her dinner 🙂

Homecooked Seafood Deep Fried Noodles

Homecooked Seafood Deep Fried Noodles

This is the last meal that the mil dished up for us before we left for Ipoh and before she left for Hong Kong.  After she was done with this, she cooked a big pot of turmeric chicken for us, for deep freezing into 2 portions. All her homecooked dishes in the freezer will be our ration on days that I am too busy or too tired to cook. There are still 4 servings of dishes sitting in the freezer now.

Cantonese style fried yee mein with seafood consisting of squids, prawns, meat slices, veggie and egg sauce.  The deep fried yee mein was made from scratch.  The kids love yee mein but the mil does not fancy the idea of her grand kids eating deep fried noodles fried with oil from questionable source.  So she bought some raw wanton noodles and deep fried them herself.

Oodles of yummy homecooked noodles!
