My mom used to complain that she is tired of thinking up the menu daily. I can't blame her as she has to cook two main meals a day.
During her era she doesn't have the internet as inspiration. I am blessed in a way that I have many friends who love to bake and cook and they are my inspiration! Thanks gals!
I have tried buying fish paste at the supermarket before and I hated it. When we were young, mom will travel all the way to
Chinatown wet market to get 西刀鱼肉 which is my
favourite. I remembered those are really fresh and there is always a
queue for it.
While checking out my facebook, I saw someone posted this fish paste omelette roll and it looks yummy. Since my kids love omelette, I decided to give this a try from the usual uninspiring recipe that we always used. Thanks to AL who pointed out to me where I can get some decent fish paste.
My girl had fun helping out frying the omelette and dicing the onions and chillies.
Indeed a nice change from the boring omelette that I used to prepare for the family.
Next on the list was an impromptu decision to do a steam dish. My family is not really tuned to eating much steamed food (only have to blame myself) but I am glad that they were happily lapping up this Steamed Pork Patties with pickle vegetable 冬菜 !
Sorry for the poor lighting as it was getting dark by the time I finished cooking.
Am really exciting as my little one will be done with her exam by tomorrow! Yes, time to start planning fun activities to do.
