Hubby came back from his work trip, so thus ends my ‘homemaker holiday’. But of course, I’m SO very happy that he’s finally back!
The food for the weekend and the week includes:
Broccoli beef, chive omelet, seaweed chicken, thai-inspired prawns with green beans, yong tau foo, chwee kueh, satay, kecap manis fish, and thai coconut curry fish.
Beef broccoli, recipe from Steamy kitchen; Chives omelet, recipe from Rasa Malaysia
This was the first meal the day that hubby returned. Just a simple homecooked meal with broccoli beef and chives omelet (because I chopped off a whole chunk of chive leaves from my chives plant).
Seaweed chicken... marinade recipe was from Rasa Malaysia's pandan chicken, which I previously tried making.
Deep-fried seaweed chicken, using rasa malaysia pandan chicken marinade
Hubby's lunch box.. sesame chicken and Thai-style prawn & green beans (prawns cooked in the way that Charis taught me... marinated with fish sauce, lime leaf and sugar)
Used jalapeno for the big chili... but it turned out tasting quite similar to the big chili normally used
FINALLY got down to making Hakka Yong Tau Foo! Getting in touch with my roots of being Hakka once again.
Chwee Kueh... something wrong with it... only tastes about 50% like the actual one... the kueh was a little too gooey, and the chai poh just doesn't taste right... so sad... haha
Satay waiting to be grilled
woops, quite burnt! haha.. This was SUCH a tiring dish. the sauce alone took me so long to make because I had to toast the nuts, peel the skin, pound them.. and cut and blend all the ingredients. gosh.
Satay served complete with nasi lemak rice, kecap manis fish, and bean sprouts. Satay tasted too healthy cos I cut out ALL the fats from the meat.. haha
Was hoping to be able to give some satay to some neighbours, but unfortunately they tasted too healthy and far off from how Satay should taste (cos I cut out all the fats…). I don’t know what else went wrong… Have to analyse the recipe again vs what I actually did. Satay recipe from Rasa Malaysia, Kecap Manis fish was out of experimentation (marinated with oyster sauce, kecap manis and garlic. Salt added just before cooking).
Okie, that’s all for the last 2 weeks!
