|Anton Ego - The Imperious Food Critic|
Admittedly, I did say that but that was long before I started blogging and before Pinterest came along. Thanks, pallies! It's your tantalizing recipes that you share on you blogs that inspired me!
My closet-size kitchen is now my playground and I have so much fun trying out new recipes and snapping pics of them. The biggest pleasure of all is seeing Rodney, my picky 13-year old son asking for seconds these days. Menu-planning used to be such a challenge with him. Even Anton Ego would have been easier to please!
Keepers from last week's menu to share.....
TAU YU BAK (Translation in Hokkien - Belly Pork Braised In Soy Sauce)

GOBI PAKORA - A yummy south Indian recipe that will get your kids to eat up their veggies. Florets of cauliflower deep-fried in a batter of chickpea flour. Serve as a snack or side dish.

Tip : Placing the potato on a wooden spoon as you slice along the length of the potato will keep your knife from slicing all the way through the potato.

Just marinate your chicken/pork with your favourite seasonings, dip in beaten egg, coat with custard powder and pan fry in a mixture of butter and margarine/olive oil. Yummmmmm! You are welcome!
Curious, I googled to find if anyone else does this and learned that the Viets love their corn done this way! Ngô chiên bơ” (literal translation: deep-fried corn in butter) is a snack that's really popular with kids and adults.
It's not even 5.00 PM yet and Josh asks, "So what's today's special, Ma?"
Holy smokes! These look delicious. My favorite is the pork belly and eggs dish. Although I love it, my children do not and I have never made it myself. Hubby has made it a couple of times though. I, too, get that warm fuzzy feeling when I eat this dish. It reminds me of my youth... lots of rich and small bits of the meat and egg... yumm! The custard powder now has me intrigued. Is that what is on the label? I'll have to find some! :) Thanks V! (and thanks to Pinterest for inspiring you... so you can share with us!)ReplyDelete
