Weekends cook out!

Posted by Dawn at Saturday, February 21, 2009
So far every Saturdays, I would be cooking something special for the family. Most of the time, I would cook some noodle dish for lunch. Today, I decided to cook seafood hor fun for CT as he told me he was craving for it a few days ago.

I first add oil and garlic to the wok. Then, throw in the rice noodles, light soy sauce and sesame oil. Fry till fragrant. If you want your rice noodles to be black, just add dark soy sauce. I prefer the white kind.

After that, remove the noodles from the wok. For the gravy, I first add oil and chopped garlic in wok. Then add chicken stock, light soy sauce, oyster sauce, dark soy sauce, sesame oil and pepper. Then add prawns, sotong, caixin (can add fish fillet and lean pork as well). Then add thickening glaze(flour with water). Stir well. Then throw in egg.

Lastly pour the gravy over. You can season more stuff when you taste.

I was quite surprised as it really tasted authentic. Haha. Go try it!

For dinner, went to Hougang and we all ate chicken rice from the Famous Boneless Chicken Rice Stall! Yummy..But dunno why it still came with bones. Sigh.

Anyway, the chicken was very tender. Loved it as it came with a old cucumber soup with chicken feet and of course, with free flow of chilli and ginger! We ordered a plate of beansprouts to go with it and rojak (from another stall).

Check out the wonder woman- Vicky, handling both children. Well, after a while, I took over from her to feed Caleb. So, didnt torture her ok?

After dinner, went to Hougang Mall to check out the Harvey Norman Sale. CT and I were tempted to buy the LCD TV..but decided not to as our TV is still working fine. But, its a matter of time and price before we would buy a 37 inch one. Cant wait!
