It's such a joy that I've gotten over my 1st trimester!!! I don't know if you realised it, but there were the few months that I blogged very infrequently, and they were hardly about food because I felt like puking just by looking at those food photos! That explains why I was also not cooking a lot until we came back from Greece and decided to have more homecooked (on weekends only, still) after all the food we ate outside.
Anyway, here are just some cooking from our kitchen that cooked to feed mum-to-be-me and the Papa. :)
#1 One-Pot Ginger Chicken Rice
Kim. Completed the dinner with some boiled broccoli and water cress soup.
#2 One-Pot Chicken, Shiitake Mushrooms & Chinese Sausage Rice
Also had it with a boiled broccoli and sweet corn soup. Must have balance meal with meat and vegetables mah! *wink~*
#3 One-Pot Pork Ribs, Shiitake Mushrooms & Chinese Sausage Rice
Also had it with some stir-fry mixed sprouts and water cress soup.
#4 One-Pot Baby Porridge
|Here I put marinated pork balls, potatoes and carrot.|
|Same ingredients but with broccoli in it so no need to cook another vegetable dish! Lazy to the max! :p|
|Here's chicken porridge and carrot. One of my favourite Mamo's recipe.|
|Slightly different because I used 10 grain rice to cook and added Bovril to it to make it even more like a baby porridge. LOL.|
# 5 Vermicelli in Pepper Soup
Wow, that must be a day I was in a damn good cooking mood. I boiled the soup with pork ribs and smashed white pepper, then added the rest of the ingredients separately! See, there were vege, homemade pork balls, fried sliced pork, prawns, Fuchok and even fried egg! Phew~! Served with MIL's homemade sambal.
#6 Lime Leaves Prawns Pasta
Lime Leave Prawns into this Aglio Olio and it tastes bloody fantastic, especially with the nice fragrant you get in the lime leaves! Served with an ABC Soup.
#7 All-in Macaroni
#8 Sesame Oil Stir-fry Pork with Black Fungus & 'Drumstick Mushrooms'
#9 Oven-roast Chicken Drumsticks Served with Pan-fry Brussels Sprouts and HK Choy Sum
#10 No Rice Chinese Dinner
#11 Porridge and Soup Dinner
Although cooking during pregnancy can be tedious, but nothing can really beat the fact that home-cooked are always cleaner, more nutritious and healthy for both mummy and baby. We eat out every single weekday and that's really a shame. So I'm trying to make it a point that we eat at home on weekends, no matter how tired I am! :)
