Hi ya'll! Time for another round of Chef Shirlexia sharing her cooking adventure! No offend lar dear chefs out there, I know you guys don't like people calling themselves chefs when they are not qualified enough but this is just a nickname for myself when I blog about my cooking adventure lar, k?
So lately we have been trying to cook at home as much as possible cos eating out so much shouldn't be good for a mum-to-be I guess. So if we get home earlier from work I'll whip up a quick meal, most of the time porridge. On weekends too sometimes we just have porridge since Deardo wants to eat lighter dinners and he is finally in love with my porridge (now my future son will sure love mummy's porridge since it has gotten the difficult papa's approval too, hehe...), but I'll also cook something different occasionally.
So here goes...
#1 Chicken Porridge with Stir-fry Broccoli and Oyster Mushrooms
#2 Chicken Porridge with Stir-fry Water Cress with Goji
And if you haven't tried frying your water cress then you really should start doing it! Get the younger water cress and I can assure you you will love the texture when you eat it! Water Cress is very high in iron okay! :)
#3 Tang Yuen in Red Dates & Ginger Soup
#4 Sesame Oil Chicken Soup with Bihun Served with Stir-fry Nai Bak with Goji
this, but with changes in certain ingredients.
#5 Complete Chinese Dinner V1
Lime Leaves Prawns, Fried Fish (first time frying fish at home and Deardo had to do it cos I hate frying stuff that have oil hopping out onto me), herbal soup and the oh-so-yummy 10-grain rice with Chinese sausage. Just slice the sausages and steam them with the rice and OMG the fragrant and the taste you'll get from your rice is so irresistibly addictive!
#6 Complete Chinese Dinner V2
#7 Yellow Wine Chicken Mee Suah & Herbal Chicken Soup Mee Suah
Anyway, I didn't do any research on how to make a Yellow Wine Chicken Soup, it was done based on what Deardo said he wanted it to be. So I pre-marinated the chicken with soya sauce, Ajishio and some yellow wine, then add into a simmered bunch of sliced ginger, fried them a little and add water, then the goji and black fungus, plus a little salt to taste. As I turned off the fire, I added about another 3 tbsp of the yellow wine. I didn't try the final product but Deardo was definitely happy with that bowl of dinner so I guess it was a success too! :)
#8 Home Alone Stir-fry French Beans, Carrot & Minced Pork with Sha Cha Sauce over Quinoa
#9 No Carb Dinner Platter
Very yummy oven-roasted HP Sauce (and other sauces) marinated chicken drummets served with a cob of corn and a side of Stir-fry Sha Cha Sauce with Okra. Quite a fusion dinner I shall say. *wink~*
#10 Homey Dinner for the Tan Sisters
On a night where Deardo had dinner appointment, I enjoyed some private time with my two lovely sisters who came over and had a taste of home-cooked food (after some time) that the big sister made for them. So we had a Stir-fry Mixed Vege, Steamed Egg with Minced Pork, Butter Prawns and Herbal Soup to go with some awesome Chinese Sausage 10-grain rice for dinner! :) Always nice to have them with me as they always help in preparing dinner and doing the dishes. :p
#11 Minced Pork Omelet Soup with Glass Noodles
Again, on a night where Deardo enjoyed his Yellow Wine Chicken Soup Mee Sua, I enjoyed one of my favourite dishes that my Ah Ma used to cook, done in around 15 minutes. You can get the recipe here, but I added Goji for some additional nutrition this time around.
Once again, thank you for watching!
