First Homecooked Meal of 2013
It's been a while since I've cooked at home. My mum cooked all my meals during my confinement in September and October and then my mother-in-law came over for 2 months and if we didn't eat out or packed food home, she'd cook.
I finally got around to making a simple lunch for myself today - Oven Baked Fish and Mixed Rice.
The fish was really simple really, I just added some scallion oil and salt to a piece of fish, wrapped it in aluminum foil and baked for 40mins. Next time, I'd try adding a slice of ginger and some wolfberries to it... maybe even some enoki mushrooms. As for the mixed rice, I just used what I had at home - pork floss, fragrant fried chai poh (salted turnips) and toasted sesame seeds.
It was nice to be able to cook my own lunch.. though Little N was up before I could eat it. She was co-operative though - I had her lie down on a mat and she played on her own whilst her mummy ate lunch...
