Chinese New Year Eve

Usually my mum is the one who cooks for my family but she's back to her home in Taiping. So for today I have to cook my own meals. Here I have cooked three very simple dishes for my family.

Lunch menu:

1. lotus root soup- a very nutritious and delicious soup

ingredients: red dates, lotus roots and chicken


just slow-boiled for 2 hours


added some soya sauce


2. fried kueh teow and yellow mee- appetizing


ingredients: yellow mee, kueh teow, bean sprouts, garlic and prawns


stir-fried the garlic and prawns- nice aroma


added the bean sprouts


fried the kueh teow and yellow mee,
added soya sauce and black sauce,
mixed with the above dish,
garnished with omelet eggs


Dinner menu:

steam boat- a very nutritious and interesting dish


ingredients


boiled the soup with prawns, meat, mushrooms and wolf berries
kept on adding the other ingredients

Yummy!


What about you? What do you have for your meals today?


Happy Chinese New Year!

  1. This looks delicious, that's the kind of food I adore. But preparing it is another story I wouldn't know a shop where I could buy all the ingredients, so I think I have to go to a chinese restaurant as usual !

  10. The meals are simple, yet nutricious and fit for the occassion. Nothing beats the taste of a home cooked meal. I had a vegetarian meal for lunch since this is the first day of CNY.

    Happy Valentine's Day and Happy Chinese New Year. Gong Xi Fa Cai!

  13. Happy New Year to you and Valentine's day.

    You proved yourself a good wife and mum by cooking two great meals.

    I am ashamed that I bought pizza for my son. Just the two of us.

    My husband is in Malaysia, my oldest daughter is in Singapore, my other daughter is away.
