Curry Vege

Claypot Tofu

Cornflakes cookies

I wanted to bake cornflakes cookies. Josh suggested this method of melting chocolate is much more simpler. Initially, I heard of this method. Its just that I have not tried double boiling before. Fearing that it will be difficult. After Josh's explanation, I decided to give it a try and here they are... I love them....
Packed these cookies with my chocolate chip cookies to give to colleagues for xmas. Hope you all enjoy them and do not mind the home made cookies. :)

Fried Bee Hoon

This morning, I woke up super early to make breakfast for colleagues. Main reason is to thank Eunice for her help & advice for the past 3 weeks. Tomorrow is supposed to be her last day of work. In order to help me with some discussion, she cancelled her leave next wed.
I fried Bee Hoon and cooked chicken porridge. Did not take the picture of the porridge.

Chicken Rice

Initially, thought that I wont be able to cook chicken rice because no pandan leave. Josh suggested me to buy from supermarket. Told him it will be late when I reach home. Indeed., it was already 8 plus when we have our dinner. However, my craving for chicken rice for dinner is too strong.

Feast of the month

Whip up another feast today. Isaac is going back to India end of the month and going to UK to work. Moreover, his wife will be going back to India first on 16th so we decided to invite them over for dinner tonight. At the same time, hubby also invited some ex colleagues over for dinner. The dishes are almost the same. I really wanted to make something different. Seemed like hubby only know to order these few dishes for gatherings. haiz... Initially, wanted to make pizza but realised I do not have cornmeal. Then decided to make the no baked cheesecake since I have cheese in the fridge. After preparing biscuits base, realised I do not know to how fix the mixer. So cant make cheesecake also. :(

Snowskin Mooncake

Made the snowskin mooncake tonight. Went to choose and try gowns for the photos shooting in the afternoon and then went Bugis Junction for dinner. Actually, was too tired liao. But I already bought the ingredients last sat. If I dun make some today, I afraid I cant finish them by Friday.

This year, decided to stick to snowskin mooncake using Josh's recipe. Last year, I failed to bake the mooncakes and the ingredients ended up in the rubbish bin. Such a big waste. :( But I do not know what happen this year also. Many cracks in the mooncakes and so uneven. So sad.. Maybe will try making them tomorrow or Wednesday.

Claypot Vegetables Yi Mee

No more kuay teow when I went to market during lunch time. But had a nice lunch instead. :) Still feel like cooking one dish meal for tonight dinner. Decided to use my new claypot and cook Yi Mee with all the vegetables I have. Though no meat, it cannot be considered as a vegetarian dish as I put shallots and egg. I only cooked one piece of Yi Mian out of the whole packet. We still have problem finishing this claypot. Think I add too much vege & tau pok.

Chocolate Mousse cake

Today, went to Josh house to collect the mixer and also learnt how to make the cake from him. When I saw his posts days ago, I like it very much and am sure my hubby will like it. So decided to learn from him at the same time. hehe...
Today is really a fruitful day for me @ Josh place, received a mixer, learnt the cake method, saw his flowers and plants, had seafood pasta made by Josh and I even had the chance to bring back the cake. Thanks, Josh!!!

Spaghetti

Ever since I started to work in the new job, today is the 1st time I experienced heavy rain after work. It had been almost a month already. Wanted to cook porridge again. I thought having porridge on a rainy day will be quite nice. BUT when I reached home, I feel like cooking spaghetti. Haiz.. This is me. Always change my mind. haha... In the end, spaghetti for dinner.
I have cabbage & carrot in the fridge and a bottle of salad cream bought by hubby. Feel like making coleslaw for him as he asked me whether I know how to make coleslaw. Frankly speaking, I do not know. haha... I was brought up in a kitchen with chinese cooking. No western cooking. I learnt how to cook spaghetti on my bintan trip. Josh taught me how to make it before. However, I did not take down the notes. I just cut the vege and put in the salad cream and little bit of salt. Taste very funny. Think I am wrong to use the salad cream. Must go and check with my shi fu later. haha :P


These are what I made for dinner 2 days ago.

Cauliflower with carrot and mushroom.

Teochew style porridge

I had lost voice for a few days. Finally, I regained back my voice today. But the cough still persists. Had no choice but to see the doctor again for the cough. Decided to cook something very simple but our favourite for dinner tonight after seeing the doctor. Moreover, he will be home late too after his table tennis game.
