Simple Stir-Fried Clams

“Simple way to stir fry, even with the most basic ingredients in your refrigerator, you may easily turn fresh clams into delicious dish in a flash!”

Found these fresh large clams which comes in thin shells instead of usual thick shells type. This flower-patterned thin shelled clam is not as common to be found in Singapore market than in Malaysia, especially such large ones. Hence, I had to just grab some even though I had no clue how to deal with these shells.

Till the very last minute, I was still not inspired how to cook it, and due to lack of other ingredients to spice up my cooking for this, I decided to simply stir fry with ginger and bird eye chili which found in my refrigerator. Well, it turned out good!

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).
