Poor (Baba) Man’s Porridge

Standard
Poor (Baba) Man’s Porridge

I am still, most unfortunately, having hyperactive gastrointestinal movements.
The Baba is faring better. He thanks you for asking.

That hasn’t cramped The NyonyaCelup’s style, though.
I managed to treat the Baba & I to a (ridiculously) simple porridge – which (importantly) my stomach (and intestines!) happen to agree with as well.

Don’t go! There’s more!

Super Easy Peasy Vanilla Ice Cream

Super Easy Peasy Vanilla Ice Cream

A decade or so of fertility, and the pain it brings, teaches you that there’s nothing a lil’ ice cream sundae can’t ameliorate.

After baking a huge a$$ pavlova last week, I was stuck with 6 egg yolks, which were put to good use in a (super easy peasy — and I will use this word many times) home made vanilla ice cream.

Now, meringues are a very good excuse for making ice cream, or vice versa, depending on which was your original intention.

Don’t go! There’s more!

Bihun ala Melayu (Non-halal)

Bihun ala Melayu (Non-halal)

I’ve always been a fan of Malay-style spicy bihun. Something in me always goes giddy with excitement when I see it on the menu of our morning meetings – I usually end up having three plates, or more, of that stuff. (Yes, the Ministry of Health’s efforts to promote a healthy eating lifestyle among its employees are all but lost on me.)

So, when I ransacked my freezer today, only to find meats of all sorts dating from Chinese New Year, making the NyonyaCelup’s interpretation of this dish seemed like a no-brainer. (It is non-halal, obviously, because the NyonyaCelup and the Baba cannot live without pork…)

Don’t go! There’s more!
