Home-Cooked Saturday Dinners.

October 22, 2009

Every Saturday’s spent with great food, great company with my family and well, the usual Taiwanese drama on TV. It’s what we call our Saturday culture.

Family time together should never be neglected. We come together coz of food? Or is food the reason we come together? I’d choose the latter.

I love close up shots of my food. Makes me feel close enough to smell it. *sniffs*

A Colourful Dinner.

April 14, 2008

When I was a young girl, I rarely enjoy home-cooked meals. Therefore, I am very thankful and blessed that I get to eat home-cooked meals so often now; at home and at my boyfriend’s place. This was a delicious spread by Chef James Leong (my boyfriend’s dad) last week. 🙂

Sweet and sour prawns.

Spinich with dried shrimp.

Deep fried fish.

And a Cantonese dinner isn’t complete without a soup dish.

I always feel very at home there. 🙂 I’m a real blessed girl.

My Home-cooked Meals.

March 2, 2008

When I was young, my grandfather would cook my dinners for me. When I moved out to live with my mother, we stopped having home-cooked meals. It is only recently that God had blessed my family with a lovely helper that can cook really well. 😀

This was a meal cooked for my entire family, just before a Mahjong game. There was mutton & potatoes in coconut sauce, broccoli & mushrooms, fried tofu with bean sprouts, fried chicken, egg omelette, prawns in tomato sauce and a soup dish (not shown in the photo).

This one is a simpler dinner for 5. I didn’t manage to take a photo of the soup. In Cantonese meals, it is a must to have a soup dish. My family believes in cooking our soup in a pressure cooker to attain the best results. In this meal, there was steamed fish, deep fried mashed potatoes and spinach.

As much as I love eating home-cooked meals, sometimes it is nice to eat out. I consider Singapore to be a food paradise, with many 24-hour eateries to choose from. There is always something to eat.

This was a seafood dinner treat by a friend sometime back. There were only 5 of us, but somehow we cleared almost all the plates. There was sambal stingray, cockles, prawns, squid, etc. We Singaporeans love to eat and we live to eat. 🙂
