What’s going on…

Well, nothing much, just a whole lot of eating and cooking. No, I have not been cooking all that much – I leave it to the ladies. I just ate. LOL!!!

My missus made these Thai pork sausage the other day…

…which tasted nice, very strong on all those herbs that went into it but the texture was kind of dry. I think perhaps that was because she used mostly lean minced meat.

For dinner that evening, she made them into meat balls…

…instead of frying them in the form of sausages and yes, we loved it! Everyone thought that they were much nicer cooked this way.

In the meantime, my girl went and cooked this white bean curry…

…because there was a can in the house that had been there like…forever! I don’t know whether she or the mum bought it – it sure wasn’t me! She followed this recipe on youtube and it turned out really nice just that there I was, wishing I had some Indian roti to eat it with. That would be so nice!

On another day, under the supervision of her mum, she tried her hand at cooking tom yam goong

…and it turned out so so so good, very much nicer than what we had had at the Thai restaurants anywhere and everywhere. Of course, you definitely can’t go wrong when you add one whole pack of the giant tiger prawns, around RM40 for 19 of them (size 4A). The broth/soup was simply out of this world. My girl had bihun with it but I was quite happy to enjoy it with rice.

There are still 10 days left in this Phase 4 of the MCO/partial lockdown – let’s see what else the ladies have up their sleeves

  1. 10 days left? But majority of businesses and offices can open on May 4. I hope it won’t be like Hokkaido having to lock again when cases go up after uplifting too soon. The meatballs look better because it didn’t break up like the sausages. The prawns are just RM2.10 each! So affordable!

    4A, not as big as the 5A or AA ones – those around 12 only, around RM45 a pack.

  2. All 4 dishes look so tasty! You are so blessed that both ladies love to cook and cook very well too.

    Yes, I just stick to my gardening every morning (and evening, if not too hot) so everyone has something to do and the days pass quickly.

  3. Nothing will go wrong if cooked prawn. All the natural sweetness in there. I would love the Tom yam goong. Both your missus and Mel are good at cooking. Truly blessed in all ways.

    Indeed! Around RM40 is reasonable – the pek hay (seawater prawns), if this size, will also cost at least, RM45 a kg.

  4. love the comforting textures clearly on display in this post! i could certainly chomp down on those sausages 😀

    Looking on the bright side, the ladies sure did get to try some nice recipes, a welcome break from our usual dishes day in, day out. More coming up!

    1. So nice to relax and enjoy the food that the ladies prepare. Tom yum goong, I am salivating.

      Second to none. I’ve had some good ones but this one is so much nicer!

  5. The tomyum gung meehun is what I’d choose too!

    It was so good! There is still a pack of those giant tiger prawns in the freezer. Hopefully, my girl will cook this again. Slurpsss!!!

  6. Meatballs for me! The tom yum goong must be very enjoyable with the flavourful broth. But i can’t take spicy food too often so must have ice water if i am the one eating it.

    Wasn’t really spicy. Up to you to adjust the spiciness – it does not have to be spicy.

  7. Mum used to always make her own sausages from scratch.

    I would buy those when I see them at the supermarket, more expensive but a whole lot nicer than the factory-made supermarket ones – like rubber. First time, my missus trying to make her own.
