cooking last sunday

simple home-cooked meals for the day:

minced pork, oyster and spinach porridge. i just dumped everything into the rice cooker and let simmer for 45 minutes. this was HQ's portion.

quick pasta with olive oil, garlic & parsley. topped with stirfried meat pieces and button mushroom. blanched vege and fried shallots at the side. should have added chili flakes to the sauce for extra kick
the kids had macaroni in ikan bilis, homemade meatballs & spinach soup
steamed kampong chicken with honey, organic soy sauce and keizi/ wolfberries
braised potato with homemade char siu (kiddos' favourite)
stirfried spinach (for the kids)
stirfried ladies finger with spicy dried prawns and belacan (for adults)
kampong chicken, corn and carrot soup (simmered in the slow cooker)
(as you can see, the only vegetables my kids will eat are spinach, potato and tomato *sigh*)

snack for the kids in between meals – raisins, yogurt, honey stars, apple, grapes, biscuits and of course milk.
