Honey, wassup for dinner?

A typical homecook dinner will look something like this ....



It consist of :


Rice, main source of carbohydrates



Fried chicken wing, a look at the golden crispy skin already makes me feeling hungry.
Hub & I love to eat sinful fried stuff.
I find that the chicken wing is fried to a pleasant color which makes me just want to post this up. *click on the picture to appreciate the dish*
Tantalising....yum yum.... :) ~~~~

Steam Salmon with magarine, good source of omega 3 for the kids.
A slice like this cost near to S$5.
I try to have fish daily for the kids.
Either salmon, batang fish, red snapper, red garouper or kurau fish.


The kids just love soup. Zac has a habit of drinking soup daily after his meal.
The fish ball + sweet corn + carrot soup is one of his favourite.

Stir-fried brocolli with carrot and shrimps. Easy to prepare yet nutritious.
Good source of calcium from brocolli since Zac refused to drink milk.
So a simple meal at home would cost about S$12.
Divide by 4 adults : 3 adult & 2 kids (= 1 adult).
That will be S$3/meal, really value for money consider the fact that we have fish & meat.
Before you start to praise me for doing up such a mouth-watering meal for the family.
I better let you know that these are prepared by my very GOOD chef at home.
My indonesian helper. She is an EXCELLENT cook, at least to me.... she is!! *applaud*
I am just a LAZY one .... LOL :)

44 Hugs for Amos & Zac:

You are great at doing all the calculation and listing the nutritions.. haha.. good mom you are! :)

Judy said...

Wow, simple but very tasty and nutritious for S$12??
Sounds like your salmon is much cheaper than in UK, how can that be wor? So not fair!!

J@n!ce said...

Nick : I think those dishes are typical chinese dishes so... sama sama. Your wifey better than me at least still can cook. You are so fortunate :) :)

Hi Janice,
Ohhh... no.. even at this hour (almost midnight), I still could not withstand this temptation. I am feeling hungry looking at these photos. Looks like I got to find something to eat after this comment. :-)

J@n!ce said...

Lili : Brocolli with carrot & shrimps is really a healthy dish for your boys. You should give it a try. For the sake of them, you have to try to cope with the vege as well.... good luck :)

Sam Chan : LOoks like my helper is really successful in making those dishes so palatable that everyone just felt hungry looking at it.
:) ~~~
You better grap something to eat else you will not be able to withstand the temptations to continue your blogging... haha :D

Emila Yusof said...

Yum yumm yummy! Jean, looking at your food, I feel hungry.

Robert Revell said...

Wow, looks delicious! My favourite foods are fish and chicken and I eat them no matter how they are prepared. I only wish I had a helper to cook, but here in America that would cost over $20,000 per year!

J@n!ce said...

Emila : LOL!! Sayang, you got my name "sa lah".. ini Janice, not Jean...I think Jean & I are kinda use to it now cos pple keep getting the both of us mixed up ;)

Bobby : Good !! You are not a fussy eater & that's easy to cook dishes for you. Too bad that I cant cook, else I could fly over to be your chef. Wow !! $20K is in USD or SGD?

Mummy to QiQi said...

Emila Yusof said...

Huhu...sorry Janice!! What was I thinking...maybe just now I read Jean's comment in Marzie's post, or was it because I read Jean's blog at the same time? *scratching my head* Anyway, sorry again, Janice!

J@n!ce said...

Chin Nee : Don't praise me too early...you din read carefully...those dishes are not cook by me lah... LOL :)

Emila : No worries dear, I understand what you are saying cos sometimes I also blur blur esp with so many friends blog open up at the same time... hehehe ;p
