Stir Fry Greens

This is about the closest we could get to salad. The 3 of us can wallop this pot within a meal! It is easy to cook, considerably healthy and most importantly, it is satisfying and it doesn’t leave me feeling like some four legged cattle chewing on some cold raw leafy greens.
It has carrots, broccoli, celery, onions, tomato and mushrooms. Basically whatever vegetables I can find in the fridge. For meat, I use chicken.


Eight Treasure Tea (Ba Bao Cha)

My father in law made this tea during Chinese New Year. It tastes sooo good and I crowned it the PERFECT drink for this new year as it aids digestion, reduces body heat and relieves fatigue. Everything I need this new year after stuffing myself with so much oily and heaty food.

The 8 treasures in this tea are
– dried longan
– wolfberries
– red dates
– rock sugar
– tea leaves (as per your preference)
– dried raisins
– ginseng slice
– chrysanthemum

Just add hot boiling water to the above, let it simmer and VOILA! you get this refreshing, thirst quenching, delightful and mildly sweet drink.

If you are trying to impress someone of the older generation, like how I impressed my mum, I bet you will never go wrong with this one!
Mal loves it so much that he down 2 cups of the drink and asked for the 3rd one when we were in my parent in laws’ place!


Fu Chok ?

There was a pot luck today at one of the girls’ place. I will be preparing a chinese dessert…..fu chok. I did it the night before so that I can chilled it and also Daddy can be around to entertain Mal while I cook. In the morning, I decide to let him try some and I was surprised that he actually ate. He seem to like it so that is good cos this is quite easy to prepare and is good for the skin…will make for him more often 🙂
