No, that is not the name of any restaurant that I have been to recently. It is actually me and Calvin buying the steamboat ingredient and cook it on our own at my place. I love steamboat (I must have emphasize that hundreds of time in this blog), and what would be better than eating at home with the tv and air conditioner on? We went to the raw food shop that sell all kinds of frozen food for steamboat and bbq. Even though only me and Calvin will be enjoying the steamboat, but we bought the food enough to feed like 5 to 6 people.
The uncle introduced us to the steamboat set where it contains assorted processed food like crabstick, meat balls and other type of balls. By right, we should have just buy this and the soup stock. But we end up with…
A whole table of food. We have fried bean curd, bacon, seafood beancurd, enoki mushroom, one packet of meat balls, one packet of fish balls, yee mee and eggs. OMG!!! Looks like very little but we can barely finish half of the food. Luckily we’re at home so we can just keep the remaining in the fridge. For the soup, we bought 3 packets of ikan bilis stock but we only used two. I prefer this over chicken stock as it is not too salty. After cooking the steamboat ingredients, the soup was just fine to be consumed; not too salty nor blant.
But, my task as a chef did not end there. The next morning, I woke up early like a good wife would do and cook breakfast while the lazy Pooh is still in the bed sleeping.
He loves American breakfast. So I made him baked beans, sunny side up egg with bacon. The other plate of bacon with tomato omelet was mine. Although look a little bit yucky but they taste quite good.
But being a good wife is a little tough as it requires waking up early on the weekend. Maybe I should just be a normal wife. Can or not, Pooh? Hehe.
