鱼鳔羹 Fish Maw Soup topped with Abalone.
Always keep in mind.. My Grandma has a special taste bud. Today, she requested for this for dinner. Of cus.. my job is to make everyone food craving come true.
Its the first time I actually hands-on chicken stock boil it for hours. If you use meaty chicken flesh.. you might just not get the stock you want. I use chicken wing tip here. It turn out really well. The fragrance fill the house and the soup base was light and tasty. Divine.
As long as my food keeps my loved ones smiling.. Its all worthwhile.
Fried Chicken Wings anyone?!
These are my cousin’s recipe. Instead of the usual marination.. This uses fermented tofu. To some it might be a little stinky or too salty. But its nice! Its not as bad as smelly tofu really.
Because of the high salt content.. the chicken is marinated just right. It also has a little spiciness it in so we can skip the pepper. Its a healthier marination choice!
Its kinda like the shrimp paste chicken but less then salt and unhealthiness!
Dinner-time! I lovvvveeee… Mushrooms too! It also has good nutritional elements! Its also the first time we actually had Green Beans. Locally here.. we will eat long bean also known as snake beans to some. No regrets of trying. Even Grandma prefer Green Bean now.
Cooking for my Grandma is tough. She has special taste buds also known as hard to please. LOL!
For Mr Green Bean to make her smile.. its almost like a miracle.
Its been pretty wet week here locally.. and I decided to whip up some Seafood Tom Yam Hotpot for dinner.
I have a love & hate relationship with Tom Yam.
I love the spicy hot soup with the pinch of sourness and sweetness from the seafood in it. The spices is rich and its a very special combo. I hate the part when the sourness is overpowering!
Actually.. is Tom Yam supposed to more sour or spicy or equal ratio or even with sweetness in it??? I AM LOST!
Therefore.. you wont actually see me eating this dish when I’m out.. close to never it think. Because I am afraid of the level SOURness. ~_~
Surfing the net the whole entire day for a easy home-felt chicken dish for Grandma’s dinner. There was the usual “Three Cup Chicken”, Sesame Oil Chicken, Honey Wings etc. I decided to mix and match the recipe a little and came up with this.
Amazingly, this dish got Grandma eating non-stop and having more serving! Me too! Potatoes managed to slip in some of the taste and was not too cook.. still crunchy! I could have marinated the chicken more but I wanted it to have a stronger taste of the sauce more than the chicken. I am WEIRD.. i KNOW.
I always enjoy simple recipe but tasty. For us locally, Chinese especially, RICE plays a huge deal for dinnertime. If the dishes are tasty, we can munch down bowls and bowls of rice and feel good about it.
Forget about the carbs at times.. its about eating till your heart content. Its probably my excuses for the carbs! Guilty as charged! I LOVE CARBS!!
Finally managed to resolved the sign in issues on tumblr!! I am ubber happy!
Miss blogging for sure.. been trying to find any possible time. I look at my pathetic updates this month.. its so SADDENING!
The good part this month is probably that my mummy is in town! She’s always supportive of me being stuck in the kitchen and she will there to help me.It’s always fun to the max.
Back to food…
After having a cream pasta at Coffeebean.. I got addicted to it.
I was never a fan of cream pasta. Reason being I was afraid of it tasting too CREAMY!
Yes. Cream pasta but I don’t want it creamy (As always the contradictive me).
Decided to remake the dish in my way when I saw pretty pretty mushrooms sold for SGD1.20 a pack of 3!
Heee.. Boiled half the pack of fusillis and shredded some chicken.
My Husband and I are not a fan of veggies so I left them out! No peppers.. No additional bright colours in the dish.
I was pretty surprise it turn out well. I had a little too much salt while boiling the pasta actually.. shhhhh~
We both finish up our huge plates! I felt great to end the doing what I like (FINALLY) and to have the stomach “PILED” up!
Yummy food keeps me happy no matter what a day I had. -anna
