Homey Sunday!

Sunday Nov 2, 2008

We did not go anywhere on Sunday. Just stay home to help mommy & daddy with house chores.

We started our chores after breakfast:

"Mun" Egg Noodle with bittergourd & oyster sauce Chicken
&



Lobak with Thai Fried Rice


Afernoon after the heavy breakfast, mommy steamed some "COLOURFUL APOM' for us:




Ingredients:
1 packet of APOM flour
150 ml water or full cream milk or orange juice
2 Grade A eggs

Beat the egg intil smooth,
add in APOM flour and mix thouroughly.
Add the water/milk or orange juice

Once the mixture is smooth, pour out into paper cups on aluminium containers or baking utensils.

Add your favourite colourings.

Steam for about 15-20 minutes. In between the steaming period, remember to make "X" cut in the middle of the APOM .

It's that simple.

What's cooking for dinner?
Nasi Lemak Combo


(For KIDS)


(FOR MOMMY & DADDY)

Mom used pandan green paste to add a greeny tinge to the rice cooked with coconut milk. (Cant really see in the picture due to the lighting)

She then prepared the "Ayam Masak Merah" , Stir Fried Spinach (to make us eat vege again!), Fried Groundnuts, & ABC soup for the little gals who cant take spicy food.

After dinner, mommy prepared our "recess pack" for school tomorrow.

A variety of food inspiration frm bento bloggers:
steamed corn withn butter& salt,black raisins, steam OBOROTSUKI (stuffed fish roll), and hamburger sandwich, tomata sauce & mayonaise plus a complimentary SUGUS sweet.

blessed mum & wonderful life,
Really pai seh to even call it abento coz i read in one serious blooger blog that there are certain criteria to meet to classify your bento a BENTO! ha ha!

Mumsgather,
i bought the Apom flour frm the cakes & confectionery shop..the wholesale baking stuff shop. there are a few here in Ipoh. Or alternatively u can buy the FATT KO flour frm TESCO> Goodluck!
