On 27 May 2013

White rice served with:

1. Steamed Egg with Fish Tofu 鱼豆腐蒸蛋
2. Blanch Tri-color Capsicum with Chicken Breast 三色柿子椒拌鸡柳
3. Fried Cabbage with glass noodles 包菜炒粉丝
4. Yam Pork Rib Soup 芋头排骨汤

Today, I continue to cook my vegetables without using any oil. This is the 4th meal I have blanched my vegetables. Apparently they can accept this way of preparation which is good for every body’s health. I will try as many types of vegetable as possible.

Today’s soup is rather special. Special in the sense that none of my circles of friends, including neighbors have ever eaten this soup before. My late father used to cook this soup once in a while and as far I can remembers, all my brothers like this soup and it is consider quite unusual if any one of us cook this soup. I am still trying hard to trace the origins. Obviously, the way of cooking and the ingredients appeared to be influenced by western cooking. Onion was used and starch or flour was added to make it slightly runny. It is totally different from the Chinese soup we used to have. It very much resemble the western style potato soup or creamy mushroom soup! If any readers have ever cooked this soup, please share with me and I am particularly keen to know more about it.

ANALYSIS OF DISHES COOKED UNTIL TODAY

It had been almost a month and  I am in the process of preparing a summary of dishes cooked to facilitate reader’s reference and comments if any. As I have stressed many times, the purpose of this series is for reader’s reference and share with readers how I rotate my meal plan. Purely putting up what I cooked today with further analysis will not serve much a purpose. As such, I am compiling the data and preliminary analysis disclosed the following figures. I welcome readers to comment on the dish cooked and share with me if they are any areas improvement that I need to work on…
