I decided to try baking a chicken like how it’s done as a Beggar’s Chicken but this time, using Tom Yam seasoning and using Limau Parut (kaffir lemon) as well as Lemongrass (Serai) to give it a sourish flavour. It turned out a lot better than I had expected.

I’m sharing with you some stuff that I guess I do in therapy. You can either think I’m completely gone cuckoo or that I really have come to a point where I’m looking at how to make better food choices. I’m now starting to realized that I tend to have this really bad habit of just eating the food to have that temporary feeling of fullness i.e. not starving = not hungry = happy. Well, happy for the moment anyways.

I’m more than a bit embarrassed by this post because without rice, sushi doesn’t look as good. As for the taste, it’s normal and to me, it was fine. 🙂
A simple white fish on top of some spinach with some seaweed-soybean flakes mixed in-between. Tasted pretty good but that could be because the flakes were sweetened with rock sugar. It’s the vegetarian version for chicken / pork floss.
I think what I’ll do the next time is not to cut the sushi into small pieces when I make it again without rice but just leave it long. Then all I need to do is eat it.
I just did a quick writeup of the food guidelines that I use currently when it comes to preparing food. It’s prettty simple and yet it took a lot of time to fine-tune it to the point that I could actually follow it easily and comfortably. It’s not easy to make the commitment and I dragged my feet so much before. ^.^
So have a good read and let me know your thoughts on it. If you ever need to check back on it, it’s on the menu bar at the very top.
Yep, this was a lunch protein source to make lunch a good square meal. Back in university, a friend of mine taught me how to make the lemon sauce from scratch, rather than relying on the lemon sauce from the bottle. The only problem is that a lot of sugar is needed so I cut out a lot of sugar.
The chicken was pan-fried after being seasoned with pepper. The sauce is made up of purple shallots, garlic and ginger with 1 squeezed up lemon juice. I think I also added in about 1/2 teaspoon of cornflour to thicken the sauce up as well as 1-2 teaspoon of brown sugar. The pink stuff you see there was the result of the onions getting discolored by the lemon juice.
Well, last week’s break was a nice one and tomorrow’s bento is here.
The top salad bowl is for breakfast. The miso and mushroom soup and the noodle tub is for lunch. With the noodles, I have mangkuang and salmon (pricey as anything).
