I owe you…

My missus made these vegetable fritters…

…the other day and yes, we enjoyed them very much. That sure was a welcome change from how we would usually cook long/string beans.

Most of the time, we would just fry them plain with garlic or with sambal hay bee/udang kering

…or sometimes we would cut them thinly and fry with egg…

My missus added some imitation crab sticks to her fritters – I guess that was because there was a pack in the freezer and she would like to get rid of it. Otherwise, there are still a whole lot of the prawns that I bought that day – adding those would definitely bring her cucur to a whole new level!

Moving on from those lovely fritters, I think it was on the following day, past noon, when my friend, Teresa, dropped by to give us another round of her awesome kim kua koi (pumpkin cake)…

…and or koi (yam cake)…

She did give me some the other day to try and she went through all that trouble to drive over to my house to give me some more! Isn’t she nice?

Both were really yummy, heaps better than those wobbly ones (owing to the amount of flour used in the making) sold at the shops and stalls but between the two, my girl likes the pumpkin a bit more – she says it was softer and I guess there was also the lovely sweetness of the pumpkin as well.

Thank you so much once again, Teresa. So sorry that I do not have anything in the house to give you in return – I owe you once and now, I owe you twice! Sighhh!!!
