Mihun Grg Cili Kering dan Udang Kering

Translated as Fried Beehoon with Dried Chilies and Dried Prawns. I wanted to have Dry Fried Mee Siam but was short on the fermented soybeans. Can't be bothered to dress up and run down (eh... slow walk. Me and my fat tums and all... jeesh...) to NTUC just to get a bottle. Thus, I made do without it. It didn't turned out anywhere like a Fried Mee Siam but just the norm Fried Beehoon. Hokay-lah...! Also, I managed to clear lotsa 'small-bits' of food in the fridge and campak into my mee. I gotta get the fridge clear soon before my delivery as I MIGHT NOT be able to cook during my confinement period. Guess Mommy will need to tapau from her home each day. Well... I don't EXACTLY know how's the arrangements going to be like. But what's final (at least by me that is) is that I'll be going through the confinement period at my home-sweet-home. I can't imagine sleeping on Bratsy Sista's bed. Ain't the same compared to mine. Besides, there'll be no "B's" smell on hers!
the presentation looked messy!!!
"B" as ALWAYS loves anything I cooked. Sweets huh...!!! The fried beehoon was a little on the fiery side. Dried chilies usually gave a deeper "zing" compared to fresh ones. Fortunately, I've de-seeded them. Can't imagine IF I hadn't. Anyways, I had a dessert for "B" to wash down the fiery-ness of it all. It'll be in the next post.
