Tomorrow we start our 'official' duty and today is basically the 'arrivals' day where the various groups come in, staggered, at different times until we finally meet for dinner tonight.
Yesterday, I woke up early to prepare breakfast for hubby and me.
I used leftover meat sauce to make roti john, and leftover sambal to make sambal (instead of sardine) rolls.
Then I started to prepare to cook for lunch, since we were going out, but planned to eat at home.
The recipe for Mushroom Ala Fliffy is here http://fliffy.fotopages.com
I added in some grounded black pepper and a piece of bruised temu kunci. The root-herb sorta gave it an earthy aroma, yet sweet-spicy at the same time...
Kacang Botor Tumis Sambal
3 bulbs small red onions
1 clove garlic
2 large red chillies
1 inch piece of belacan
Angled beans, cut according to preference
a bit of water
salt/sugar, to taste
Heat a bit of oil and sautee the pounded ingredients till fragrant.
Add in the beans, and stir until turn colour.
Add some liquid, according to preference.
Check seasoning and serve.
I don't know if anyone knows what the mui heong salt fish is, but it is a favourite with my family. Dad's loves it!! :->
Mui Heong is usually made from Ikan Merah, and to really appreciate it, one must absolutely taste it!!! Unlike other typical salted fish, this specialty is really moist on the inside (sort of like pekasam). Mui Heong is usually eaten as an accompaniment with plain congee or with steamed white rice and sambal belacan... Yummmyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!! :P
I bought it in Kuantan, at RM17 per fish (dunno how much it weighed)
