Stir-fry Shrimp and Cauliflowers

Ning can tell what she eats by tasting, today when I gave a mouthful of this, she chewed and said.. "shrimp!" then I asked, "and what?" She said "rice!"... Okie, she still can't say cauliflowers, but I'm not expecting that from a less than 2 years old either..
Anyway, she loves this, so I'm sharing the recipe.

2 Large Shrimp - diced
2 tbsp Cauliflowers - diced
1/2 tsp oyster sauce
1/2 tsp garlic - chopped
1/2 tsp oil
2 tbsp water

Boil cauliflowers in water and a pinch of salt till soften, set aside.
Heat oil and fry garlic, add shrimp and fry till cooked.
Add cauliflowers, oyster sauce and water
Fry for another 1 min.
Serve with rice.

Steam Egg Toufu

Ning had these for lunch today. Steamed egg toufu, topped with minced pork/carrot/sweet peas/mushrooms. I mixed everything together and season with a little corn starch and soya sauce, place a small portion on each egg toufu and steam them in the rice cooker while I cook the rice. Easy right? :)

A Nice Afternoon Date

A nice afternoon with ning's daddy chatting in our "garden", my date had a couple of beer while I enjoyed a nice chilled glass of wine. Isn't life wonderful :)

Managed to snap this just a wee second before it went out of sight.

Egg Pancake

Ning is a egg lover, she'll eat eggs cooked in anyway. She likes ham, mushrooms, toufu, fish, prawns, crab, chicken, pork and she'll always eats her greens... Actually, she eats everything! Did I also mention chocolates, marshmallows, ice creams and jelly... and she love love love soup!

Therefore, its easy to prepare her meals. She'll eat whatever I cook. I always try to make them look colorful and pretty, so she'll get excited and very keen to eat.

For this egg pancake, I steamed egg with spinach and ham, its easy to prepare, and goes well for her with rice.

Mini Cheese Sausage Rolls

Bought some of these tiny cheese sausages from Japan during our holiday. I rolled them in bread and lightly toasted them. Ning finished her scrumble eggs and started "playing" with the bread, trying to dig the sausages out of the bread... Aarruggh....

Trio Color Bento

During our holiday in Japan, one of the easiest meal I gave Ning was a bento like this. We can easily buy them from their convenient store such as FamilyMart or AM/PM. They will heat it up abit at the cashier when we pay and its ready to eat. Mine here is a simple version, what we get there for around 350yen consist of stuff like these and some fried items on the side, such as chicken nuggets, meat balls etc. I should have took a photo, sorry...

My 1st bento for Ning's dinner. Consisting of rice with fried salmon, shredded egg, buttered spinach and miso soup with egg tofu. Ning was very excited to see it and she enjoyed every bits of it!

As you can see, I am enjoying cutting flowers with my cookie cutter.
and I got the cute lunch box from Daiso in Japan for 100yen.

My darling had a little jelly for desert today.

Minced Chicken with Ham Bits

Made with love.. for my little princess

Golden Bread Shrimp Rolls

Saw this recipe and I can't wait to try it out. Thanks to Little Corner of Mine for sharing your step by step instructions.

I don't have curry powder at home but was too eager to try it out. I thought of using tom yam paste to replace the curry powder.. emm... then it would be too spicy for ning.

So, I decided to wrap the shrimp with a slice of banana. I only season the shrimps with a wee bit of oyster sauce which i think it can do without any seasoning.

It taste good, looks good too.. hehe, we dip it with some mayonaise.. yummy snack!

Will try this again with curry powder and onions.. or maybe replace banana with mango.

A pleasant evening walk

When TT first came to our house, she saw the view of Pandan Reservoir from our balcony, and she said, "mum! can see the beach!"

Since its only 10mins walk away, and weather is fine, I decided to bring the girls out for a walk and show TT the "beach".
We brought along some "expired" bread, and TT enjoyed hand feeding them to Franklin. She even ask me if we could bring him home. NO!! was my answer, 3 Franklins had died under our care... so lets spare this one.

Ning had a good time too!

Pan Fried Cod with Mushrooms

On our recent 10 days trip to Tokyo/Osaka, Ning's meal times were distorted. She had only half a doughnut for lunch one day, and skipped meals for at least twice.. Every mealtime was a battle for me, nothing seems to interest her. She was too distracted by everything else, and never seems to be hungry. But its really obvious that her litttle tummy is getting flatter and flatter each day.. its driving me crazy... I wonder how many parents out there gets as panicky as me when their little ones dun eat well.

Now that we are back, I try to make up for her lost lbs. Here's a healthy yummy lunch I cooked for her, I am so pleased she eat up everything on her plate.

Pan-fried Cod with mushrooms, Ning finished up eveything on her plate with a small bowl of rice.
Fish seems to get more costly lately, a small portion of cod fish I bought from Supermarket costs S$8.

Cookie and cream ice cream on banana (coudn't find my chocolate syrup). A little bonus for her whenever she finish all her lunch. She gets to eat her portion of fruits as well. Ning loves ice cream so much that she can say "ice kim piss".. she meant "ice cream please..."
