What I cooked today (家常便饭系列)- 27-6-2013


First of all, I would like to apologize to all readers concerning about this series. As my kids was on holidays until yesterday, both my wife  usually do not cook and even if we cooked, the dish will be extremely simple. The rationale of home cooking is for my 2 kids aged 7 and 9. It is a challenge for me to make them love home cooked food and provide them foods with adequate nutrition. As long as the kids were with me, this series shall continue.

White rice served with:

1. Sweet and sour homemade fishballs 酸甜手工鱼球
2. Tower gourd fried with glass noodles 白莆炒粉丝
3. Fried chicken thigh 炸鸡腿
4. Cabbage beancurd skin pork rib soup 包菜豆皮排骨汤
5. Braised chicken breast and potato with terriyaki sauce 日式土豆焖鸡胸

Only when I compiled  the photo, I noted that the color of the pictures are rather monotonous. Compared to other days, you will note that i did not have any green leafy vegetable that make the dish not colourful. I have not start my marketing as yet and I intend to cook all the left over “stock” in my fridge and cooking shelf and start the cycle again. So all the things I cooked are items that can keep for a relatively long time such as cabbage, potatoes, tower gourd…

The dish today are rather common, all have ever cooked last month. I have deep fried chicken thigh and fish balls today. Deep frying is not a common method in our cooking, however, when there is a dish that involved deep frying, I will also take this opportunity to cook another other deep frying dish as well. The main reason is to save the time of heating up the oil.

Today’s fish ball is hand made from Batang fish. The fish had been with me for quite a while, I have decided to debone the fish meat and make it into fish balls.

Lastly, thanks of reading and you will want to see the individual picture of each dish, you can go to my Pinterest website here.  Over there, you will see all dishes i cooked categorized into meat, vegetable, tofu, meat and etc
