Fiery Tom Yam

It's a nice cold Winter's day for a hot and fiery Tom Yam soup, so I dug out my gift from Auntie Nancy. Woot Woot! Authentic Thai Tom Yam paste... Bless her heart, she gave me a big jar to take home ;)

I am using 500 gm of marinara mix. Fresh coriander, chinese wong bok cabbage, mushrooms, water, and tom yam paste and  voila... nice big pot of soup! Serve with rice or crusty bread.. fantastic! Now some may not like mushrooms, I prefer mine with mushrooms, just add or omit what you don't like. Slurp slurp!!

Durians R us!

Late nite Friday.....beeep ...beep, you got message! A friend had texted me to say that Woolies has durians at $4.98 kg. I was stucked in a hair salon and groaned out loud! Then I lamented to myself that these are frozen durians...."Jackie, not that good.... flown first class... old already.....not that will not missed a thing...."

This is not good! ....I want durians!

Saturday morning, still wondering if I should pop down to Woollies to sniff this "Not so Good" durian...

Come Sunday... OMG! There is no fruits in the house... we are off to Woolies... might peep at the Not So Good durian...hahhahaah

After a few shakes and sniffs later.....aiya....not so good lah..... shall I buy the big fat plump one? OMG I can smell it! Good Lord! It has cracked open a bit...let see...all yellow, not icy watery, wah...maybe can lah!!! Just buy one, then not so waste!

I am so full....still got half a plate...durian very good lah!!!!!

 Thank you, thank you for aeroplanes and durian farmer and friend who texted me! But I still want to do Penang Durain Tour with my good friend KC. Aiya, why no mangosteen, how to fight heaty food now leh?

Lamb Cutlets

Tonite's dinner was lamb cutlets... so yummy....even my furkids love the bones! I must be the only one who loves bbq-ing in winter...

No recipes here, nothing but fresh lamb cutlets thrown on the barbeque and salt and pepper to season... the results was succulent juicy cutlets... I am so full now.
