Happy Saturday..at home 20.9.08

Routine remain the same except that daddy got to work.

What's cooking for dinner??

As our dear little baby sister is having fever, she requested "Mommy I want to eat porridge for dinner." Unfortunately daddy doesnt fancy porridge but mom cooked porridge and some selfcreated recipe again to go with the porridge:



3 simple dishes to go with the porridge


ABC cabbage - green and purple cabbage, capsicum, carrots and cauliflower sitr fried with garlic


Mom's Tomato sardin- fresh sardin fish fry with fresh tomatoes and curry leaves in tamarind sauce.


Mom's simple mini duo LARNG POON.. fried prawn balls and egg roll with fillings of fried taufu, french beans, carrots, onions, garlic in Oyster sauce)

Dessert fruit combo (Fruits bought frm JUSCO at only RM1.00 per pack..cheap hoh?)

mango
dragon fruit
guava,
pineapple,
orange melon (cant rmber the name)
and tampoi (monkey fruit)


This is the fruit Tampoi or Chinese called it the Monkey fruit (Hou Tze Kou)
It looks like mix breed of mangosteen with ciku and langsat.
It tastes sweet sour just like Mangosteen minus the magenta colouring that can stain!

However, the flesh doesnt detach from the seed easily..so I feel tak puas makan. Just like eating "Tak lekang rambutan:.

On a side note:
The kids were excited to see their tongue turn MAGENTA colour after taking the dragon fruit. Look at Daniel:


That was our simple family hour for a Happy Saturday.

I don't know if it the same. I like to eat the "hou tze kou" too but ours is beige in colour not so dark brown..

The fruit is really cheap!!!

You have a good weekend too!
