Goldfish Breaded Fish Fingers



I have tried to avoid giving shop bought snacks to A with some exception like goldfish crackers, it is not that these crackers are any better than other stuff kids normally have.  

The only reason he gets this "treats" once in a while is because no matter how we try, he is going to eat some junk foods anyway. So savory ones is better than the sugar filled stuff. Besides, he starts liking goldfish as he gets it in the daycare for snack.

I saw this ingenious idea of making goldfish breaded chicken sometimes ago while searching for ideas to make A's food.  I have been wanting to introduce fish to his diet for sometimes. He definitely doesn't fancy salmon and have no interest in any type of steamed fish. 

So I came up with this idea to make goldfish breaded fish fingers, with the hope that his liking for goldfish will lure him into eating some fish. He did liked it and had 4 sticks at dinner!

This Sambal Tofu is a good example of "Trully Malaysia" food, tofu as Chinese traditional food, and sambal the Malay, and guess what? It is often served by the Indian! Simply love the combination.

Simple Thai Vegetable Salad



This is one of the best salad to have in this pipping hot summer. Its sweet and sour taste makes it interesting, just make sure you chilled the vegetables for a while in the fridge before mixing.

This is all I needed for my lunch.

Stir-fried potato, eggplant and green pepper/Di San Xian(地三鲜)



This is a very traditional North Eastern Dish from China that I learnt from a friend. I made it for my family when I visited Malaysia the last time, to my surprise, everyone loved it! Including my brother who had never fancy vegetarian dishes!

I promise mum that I will write a recipe on this dish as soon as I reach home, and here it is!

Toddler Food -- Meatballs in Tomato Sauce



A started a new daycare last week, he protest every morning and got really worked up with the fact that he has to go to daycare everyday, this changes of his routine literally turn his life and mine upside down. He didn't sleep well, wakes up multiple times at night and nurses more than ever. 

But there aren't all that bad, his appetite increases after daycare and he eats more real foods now comparing pre-daycare time. And I have more time preparing his dinner before picking him up everyday!

He loves this meatballs so much that I was surprised, I initially made only 5 meatballs for him and thought to myself that if he could finished them all, that would be great. But then I can't be more wrong! He asked for more twice and ended up eating 11 pieces of meatballs with all the peas, carrot (I cut into star shapes which he really appreciate!) and vegetable. He had only a spoon of the rice but I was already out of the world.

Stir Fry Shredded Potato (Chinese Style)



The Korean supermarket that I frequently shopped was having a promotion on potatoes, 2.99 USD for 10 lbs. It was way too good a deal to pass, so I bought a packet of it.

Not until I started unpacking the potatoes packets that I realized how big a pack it is! I brought 1/3 with me when I visited my friend S. But then I still have loads of them at home. So I have been cooking potatoes gala in the past few days!

This type of stir fry potato is pretty new to me, I thought it wasn't fully cooked the first time I had it, I wasn't used to potatoes being crunchy, I have always had my potatoes stewed or boiled, it is always soft and tender.

I developed the taste and started liking it after having it a couple of times. It goes especially well with porridge.

Pedal Ayam Masak Kicap (Chicken gizzard in soy sauce)



I was at a Ramadhan-FB-pictures-lead-craving-for-Malaysian-foods phase for couple of weeks. That explains the frequent posting of Malaysian dishes here lately. Here today is yet another typical Malaysian dish, Chicken gizzard in soy sauce.

Chicken gizzard is not a common ingredients in my kitchen, mainly due to the reason that I have reduced eating organ meat for a long time. One day when I was shopping for grocery, I saw this cleaned and packed gizzard and thought to myself, it has been a long time since I have this. 

I bought one packet and made this pedal ayam masak kicap for lunch.
