Simple Fares

I and "B" had decided yesternight to go pots and pans shoping at Takashimaya Shopping Centre. They're having a Meyer Fare till 28 August. Thought we might check it out since I needed to get new ones soon. But due to the oh so... good weather, we overslept. We still could have gone shopping but the weather took a turn to the better (or is it worst???). It drizzled with a slight blow of soft wind. Mmmmm... good to just stay in and snuggle in bed. Thus, we forgo the idea of shopping. Saved some $$$ there, for now...
I couldn't make "B" go out to get us lunch in this weather right?! I reckon, a homecook lunch's the way to go. Mommy gave me some stock supplies yesterday when I visited her. I'll whip up something from those. Hence, 3 dishes came out within minutes. Accompanied with a plate of warm Basmati and a tall glass of Tangs orange. Lunch was completed!
Later tonight, the boys are coming to watch the English Premire League. I thought of making some kuehs to munch. We'll see. The nice weather calling me back to bed... I'll figure what to do when I wake up. "B's" not napping, I guess. He's busy watching Fantastic Four Rise of The Silver Surfer. Here's the lunch we had.
(1) Cili Padi Tauchu Prawns
2 cloves garlice - chopped
4 cili padi - sliced midway
4 tbsp of fermented tauchu
12-15 fresh prawns
3 tbsp water
Wash and clean prawns. Keep the shells and head on. It's great to suck the juices out. It's fine if you de-shell the prawns too. Heat some oil and fry chopped garlic and cili padis. Add in the tauchu Add in prawns. Stir till prawn changes colour. Add in water if the paste too dry. It should just coat lightly to each prawns. Serve.
(2) Oyster Beef
100g beef - thinly sliced
1 large white onion - sliced
a bunch of fesh parsley - chopped
2 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tbsp sweet black sauce
1 tbsp soy sauce
black pepper
Heat oil and fry onions. Add in beef slices and cook for a couple of minutes. Add in all the sauces and mix well. sprinkle some crushed black pepper. Let the beef cooked till tender then add in chopped parsley. Serve.
(3) Plain good ole omelette
3 eggs - beaten
a dash of white pepper
1 tsp soy sauce
olive oil
Heat oil and pour in beaten eggs. Flip over to the other side after a minute or two. Serve.
It's been a looong time since we had these kind of simple fares and we enjoyed every morsel of each! winks*
