This is a post that keep in the draft for a long time, nearly forget about it! Today, I am releasing it for you all.
Two tone ‘man tau’
What’s all about? Black and White? An old movie?
I am talking about the bread/ ‘man tao’饅頭 that I made today. It is the colour of this steamed bun. Black is actually dark brown sugar (台灣黑糖), and the white is the plain white layer.
They are a traditional breakfast bread roll in China. Also, so popular in South-East Asia, even now. They have so many different flavour: like pandan juice; pumpkin; yam; or purple sweet potato. Personal, I like the purple sweet potato, but it is not easy to buy from England. . Also in Taiwan and Malaysia. People like to have them in their breakfast with a cup of fresh-made hot or cold soya milk . Mmm, so yummy!
Most of the people will deep fry this kind of snack for CNY, but it is not a healthy snack for my kids and me. Because my cholesterol was touching the border line already. That’s why I’ll be taking more care of it.
Stir-Fry Korean Mat Kimchi 막김치 with Rice cake ~ II (韓式炒年糕) (3 recipes)
It is no doubt that Korea trend has been sweeping all over the world already. Even my BBC kids are the fans of all Korean game shows. Tell you guys something, they learned some Korean words from them, so cute!
Here is my second recipe for Korean kimchi 막김치. It was a bit hot for my kids last time. So I add few grated pears mixed with the kimchi paste to balance the spicy. Let the kimchi fermented in the cold room temperature for two days, then keep in the fridge. If you like the kimchi has a bit tart, leave in the room temperature for one or two days, just like mine. Otherwise, you can finish marinate the vegetables, and store in the fridge straight away. This time the taste just right for my kids, also I adore it so much.
Don’t know how long I can cope of this freezing cold weather -2°C to -5°C my dear. Outside the house, everything stands still, if it is not windy. If not, the gale will bring even colder to hit my face.
Right now, I am shivering in the dinning room and writing this post. Although I was wrapping with two jumpers already, and the heating is on. It feels like sitting in a large cold room. My brain gets stuck.
Vegan Thai Red Curry & Sweet Potato Chowder~泰式紅咖喱，蕃薯周打湯(純素)
Such a chilly wind and wet, typical English winter weather. What I only want to do is crouching in my sofa and wrap with my soft fleece blanket. Listening to my favourite music and eating with one of my yummy soup. And don’t want anybody disturb me, just leave me to enjoy it. I know it is my dream! Ok, stop any daydream and get back to my normal route.
