had a wonderful homecooked dinner for wife’s relatives on chinese new year day 2 on 29.1.2017. ^^
we all chipped in with some dishes.
wife made her excellent quinoa salad…never get tried of this.
so wonderful to look at & refreshing, tasty to eat, and great texture with quinoa, mesclun, pomegranate, blueberries, strawberries, roasted almond flakes etc.
today’s teriyaki salmon belly almost perfect.
wonderful flavours, & my helper’s homegrown dill a perfect match.
today’s nobu miso cod also quite excellent. my s-i-l hubby prefers the cod to salmon.
& they all liked the iberico pork collar. wiped clean la…
i had 8 pieces, just over 1kg, & pork requires longer cooking time so i covered the pan to speed up. & had to cook 4 times, 2 pieces each time.
my helper;s chicken wings always good.
i think better than most chicken wings outside.
wife made oven grilled prawns. nice, fresh & quite easy to make.
this from 2 packets from phoon huat delicatessen, about 1.75kg.
there were some leftovers, which i enjoyed the next day.
my helper also contributed 2 pastas – a cheese sausage pasta & a chicken & prawn alio olio.
wife’s sister brought pork & duck liver sausages with pickled leeks & some rice to match.
i love the duck liver sausage, very “pang”, flavourful…
& wife’s s-i-l brought 2 dessert – cheng chow & also almond jelly.
i made tiramisu also. the grand nephews loved it & it disappeared in no time.
a great family time together, lots of food & catching up.
today was the australian open grand slam finals between nadal & federer so we watched that as well. i saw a bit of the final set, and heard federer said if there could be a draw he would share it with nadal…
