Our Dinner - Thursday, 31 Jan 2013
I have been feeling under the weather since yesterday. Yesterday my throat and congested nose were really bad. Today, the congestion on my nose has eased a little but still unable to breathe through my nose — and I hate breathing through my mouth. I could hardly smell and taste my food. No appetite to eat anything but have been feeling very, very thirsty for the past 2 days, caused by the nose congestion and with the goo trickling into my throat. I guess it’s nature’s way of pumping water into the body to keep fever and infection at bay. Since I feel quite bloated drinking water and have no appetite to eat anything else, I cooked porridge and steam eggs with minced meat today.
Here’s our dinner today…
1) blanched mustard green veggie drizzled with organic Tamari sauce
2) steamed eggs with minced meat. The 3 fussy eaters loved it and walloped the plate of dish until the very last spoonful! I can never go wrong with this dish as it is everyone’s favorite.
3) porridge. Porridge was cooked with pork ribs, minced meat, shredded roast chicken breast meat from Jason’s Grocer (overnight), carrots, dried scallops, dried oysters and seasoned with a dash of organic Tamari sauce.
I made an extra portion of steamed eggs with meat and porridge for tomorrow’s lunch. When I steamed the eggs with meat in the big wok, I placed the Tiffian carrier mixture on the lower deck and stacked the stainless steel plate on top. When the dish was cooked, I removed the plate placed on top for our dinner just now. Then left the tiffian carrier one to cool down. Once the porridge and steamed dish are cooled down, I’ll place them in the fridge and tomorrow’s lunch will be gao tim! So happy I don’t have to cook again tomorrow! And we’ll most likely go out for dinner tomorrow since it’s a public holiday
