Love the meatless Monday meal today, especially the lotus roots (a good source of iron and vitamins) stir fry with fungus.
Made a long overdue trip to Costco and packed the fridge with veggies and meat. Happy to find ourselves some lamb loins for dinner tonight. I especially like these ones from Costco, since they don’t have such strong gaming taste to it. Boys all love it! Dai Bee did a quick calculation of this meal which was $27. He thought it was well worth it, since it would be $27 per person if we were to eat out.
Bought this very nice piece of pork belly for awhile and couldn’t wait to try out the roast pork recipe I found on Instagram. I was a bit hesitant to make it at first, afraid that I would mess it up (even though the recipe was foolproof). I decided to give it a shot since I would never know if I didn’t try.
The meat came out beautifully, except the skin was not thick enough for the crispiness, plus it was a bit on the salty side. These are the things I need to work on for my next piece of delicacy!Overall, it made it the dinner table tonight.
Busy day for Dai Bee and his music activities today, while Ah Lo is at home with me. Because Ah Lo doesn’t have anything to do, we did things on spontaneity (practicing basketball at the playground and even lap swimming!) Luckily I already have these ingredients at home, so we could enjoy a simple meal at home.
Meatless Monday, oh, how I missed having the greens.
Meatless Monday meal serving Korean sticky rice cakes. I liked the chewy texture of the noodles. It went well with the vegetables, mushrooms, and tofu. Was hoping to have leftovers for lunch, but didn’t happen.
Every 1st and 15th of the lunar month, I am on a veggie diet (there’s a story behind it). Anyway, my sister also share the same schedule. Today is the first of the month (1st day to Chinese new year), she made a big pot of vegetables (盤菜) and invited us.
This pot is packed with all kinds of good stuff. Though it’s only one pot, but it’s like cooking 10 dishes all at once. I loved it since it’s loaded with all kinds of vegetables and full of flavor. What a great treat!
Simple dinner tonight. Keeping it light for the big feast this weekend.
This carrot coconut soup warms up the body and makes a great meatless Monday meal!
Here’s another simple meal made with my new toy – insta pot. Took only 30 mins for this whole meal with the meat falling off the bones on the ribs.
