Mother's Day Dinner

Today is Mother's Day and I'm sure most restaurants would be packed. So, rather than fight for a table in some crowded restaurant, I decided to cook some simple dishes for our enjoyment at home. Furthermore, I bought quite a lot of fresh stuff in the marketing spree this morning.

LL requested for this Curry Stingray. The spotted stingray bought at the market this morning was really fresh. So were the baby aubergine, okra and tomatoes - they all went into this curry pot!

From my favourite yong taufu stall, I bought these Stuffed Taufu Puffs...these were cooked in a light beanpaste sauce...

I saw these superfresh Big Taugeh and couldn't resist getting some. They were so fresh and crunchy when lightly sauteed with prawns and spring onions...

Bought some Lala at the market...have not had this for some time. I cooked them in superior soup and chinese wine....mmmm....so delicious! The little red kei-chee (chinese wolf berries) added colour and flavour, together with some ginger, garlic and chilli padi. LL swore that this tasted much better than in any restaurant!

Oh, we had Pig Stomach Pepper Soup too...sorry, no pic taken of that.
For dessert, here's our Sea Coconut with Honey Dates tong-sui...bought 2 packets of sea coconut this morning ...(still plenty in the pot!)

my mum said the same thing and we ended up having a feast at home...

and yes, the leftovers are still in the fridge and the dinner cost only a fraction of a would-be-overly-priced-May-11-dinner! haha!

Hi BBO, thanks for visiting! These are just dishes we haven't eaten for a while...simple food eaten at home is always better than going out on a crowded occasion!
