Pork Chop Paradise

“Pan-seared/ grilled or broiled, this easy-making pork chop tastes simply great! And, learn some tips on how to cook perfectly-sautéed button mushroom here.”

My girl was on vacation with her grandparent (yes, my parents), left only two of us (yes, hubby and I). Of course, I had to make some candle-lit dinner plans for just-two-of-us even in the weekdays, my pleasure to do so. And no doubt, my candle-lit dinner was prepared by me, at home (smile). I really find it more relax, convenient and very comfortable that way to have good meals at home, especially after work. Candle-lit inner at home, our own place, and we didn’t even need to care for dressing up (or it’s better if able to dress in a more sensual or sexier way.. haha.. winking smile). Well, need not to headache about which restaurant to go.. I could even control the preparation, cooking, amount and flavour of each dish in our candle-lit dinner, each dish to be decided by me, all by myself (chuckling).

Chicken Mayo Sandwich

“Great and easy sandwiches for your breakfast, lunch and even for a light dinner choice.”

Easy and flavorful. I did this for my girl for her recess, and for hubby and myself as packed breakfast. This is also great on a picnic or for an impromptu luncheon.

This sandwich I’ve made was the usual chicken Mayo with thick white bread. However, you may wish to make it more healthy to eat and lighter in calorie so that you will feel free to eat even during dieting period, use a low-fat/ light Mayonnaise which may be found off the shelves, at Cold Storage or NTUC Fairprice Finest (at Japanese product cell).

Stir Fried Cauliflower, Sweet Bean and Fresh Shiitake Mushrooms

“Simple and delicious stir-fried mixed vegetables well liked by everyone in the family.”

I’ve posted a stir-fried assorted veggies with mushroom and fish ball recipe in my blog. This is similar with some adaptions from this previous recipe. But it’s less elements on the plate, yet more colourful, and cleaner looking now. Had the flower-shaped carrot slices to the mix for added texture and colour.

And, I did not use snow pea but the sweet bean, this time. In fact, I liked sweet bean. It does not taste sweet though. Sweet bean tastes and looks similar as snow pea, but it appears fuller in shape and its texture is crunchier than snow pea.

Nutritious Lunch Idea, the Lunch Box Gourmet

“Bringing homemade lunch to work on regular basis benefited much on your time and pocket.”

Hubby changed his office location to town area recently. It was more hectic work as new, and for one who would be swearing for having to fight through a hubbub over peak lunch hour, he might end up skipping lunch or having just some fast food meals. Hence, I made effort to wake up earlier to make a lunch box for hubby. So that he could avoid the lunch crowd, and still enjoy a fulfilling, healthy and homey lunch box. Anyway, cooking for hubby, was my favourite thing to do.

Family-Oriented Resort in Bali

“Fun-filled Bali Dynasty Resort in Kuta, Bali, Indonesia”

Just to share some photos of the resort I had stayed over for my week-long holiday in Bali, as promised to some readers who were interested to explore further for their future stays in Bali.

Let me show you the Deluxe room which suitable for 2 -3 sharings. It was spacious and well maintained. Not every room in the hotel, but this particular room assigned to us was one of those newly refreshed. Lucky enough….. ><
*There were other choices of room and suite types to cater for bigger family/ group.

Crispy Cornflake Prawn Fritters

“Creates the real flavour out of its simplicity”

Using cornflakes to coat prawn fritters makes the dish special and imaginably delicious. The cornflakes crust created a much more crispy texture and aromatic flavor in the palate than the flour or bread crumbs coating.

I learned this delicious cornflake prawn fritters dish from an adaption of recipe in a small fast food recipe book complimentary with the purchase of a lifestyle magazine.

My girl and hubby loved this version of deep fried prawn fritters so much. This recipe was indeed sugaring our meal last evening. The whole dish with servings for 4 was mopped up by just 3 of us in the end of the dinner.
