[Cooking] A Little Black Is Good

ImageImageImageBeen meaning to share this for some time. This was what I cooked the other night for dinner. Though it may (not) look appetizing, but apparently, black fungus is very good for detoxifying our blood and helps maintain good health for our kidney (I love these). So, no harm eating some “black”/ dark coloured food for our meals. I made mushroom soup from white button mushrooms (with potatoes) and it turned out black! (but it was really creamy, thick and delicious, my hubby will vouch for me *_^) So, I called this dinner “Black Dinner”. I also fried egg with bitter gourds (which are never my sons favourite!). Nonetheless, not that important if it’s healthy, no? Haha. Better be healthy than be choosy!

Stay luminous and happy, always.Imagemushroom soupImage

Since we are on the subject of food, this was what we ate for breakfast yesterday, on a Sunday morning at Damansara Perdana. Since we moved away from there, my son, Aidan has been craving for TK Chong’s Chicken Hor Fun. Finally, we had a chance to go there, but we both realized that it tasted a little different than previously. After talking to the owner, only then we found out why. Apparently, the group of workers who used to prepare the dishes were no longer working there. At times, cooking is very uniquely “individualized”. Even though you may be given the same ingredients, each person’s cooking will come out tasting very different. This is one of my favourite FOOD BLOGS. It’s called My New Roots by Sarah Britton. She has amazing organic and healthy food recipes on her blog. Worth checking out! Here for more.

[Places] Rooftop Meals With A View

Wouldn’t it be magical if you can enjoy a great drink or perhaps meal while taking in the whole view of the city or beautiful skyline as you dine? I believe it would feel like you are on top of the world, for that moment, and all your daily worries will all be melt away, instantaneously. Well, I know I would, for sure! I came across this link via one of my favourite blogs, This Is Glamorous by Roseline (here for more), where she shared a few lovely links, and it brought me over to another great blog called Small Shop Studio! Let’s enjoy the views at some of the bars here, shall we? Let’s have a mental vacation, before the real ones roll in *_^

[Cooking] All Things Bright Yellow

pumpkin soup N

Tonight I was in noodle mode, so, I made spaghetti with pesto and sliced pork meat, drizzled with olive oil and chili powder. I was also in the mood for something yellow (with a hint of golden), so I also prepared a pumpkin soup to go with my spaghetti. Am glad that  my family loved the dishes. I absolutely love pumpkin soup.

Hope you had a yummylicious and appetizing dinner, like me *-^
