I am still on medical leave so I thought I cook lunch for daddy today. After I send Little DinoEgg to school, I quickly drop by NTUC (I do not want to fight my ways with those aunties again!)

Decided to buy stuffs for lunch and dinner. Grabbed broccoli, xiao bai cai, french beans, pork ribss, lean meat, prawns and pork's liver. Too bad, I did not see any cod fish today but I bought fish fillet instead. I have no idea what to cook for daddy so I just buy whatever I see and THINK I can cook later.

After I rest for like an hour, I started to prepare for lunch! And hour later I managed to cook 2 simple dish for daddy's lunch. Last nights left over soup is in the menu too.

Stir fried pork's liver

Stir fried french beans with luncheon meat

Lunch, packed and ready to go!

Daddy eating

Thanks to Tiger thermal jar, I delivered the food still pipping hot to daddy. I asked daddy hows the food and he says "Normal lor." Hmm... what does Normal means?? I asked him again whether the food is nice, he says "Normal lor" again..... *sigh* how to know whether my cooking is good or not?

As usual I search for recipe from the net.

I found the stir fried pork's liver recipe from Patricia's blog My Wok Life with a slight change.

Stir Fried Pork's Liver with ginger and sesame oil
* 1 piece of pig's liver (about palm size big), thinly sliced
* 1 stalk of scallion/ spring onion, cut into 2" long crosswise
* 2 small thin slices of old ginger
* 2 teaspoons of Shao Hsing Hua Diao rice wine (绍兴花雕酒)
* 2 teaspoons of oyster sauce (I left this out coz dun have this at home hahaha!)
* 1 teaspoon of light soy sauce
* ½ teaspoon of dark soy sauce (I left this out)
* 1 clove of garlic, minced
* Pinch of sugar (I left this out, totally forgotten about it)
* 1 tablespoon of sesame oil

1. Blanch the sliced liver in boiled water for 20 secs or so, remove for cooking later.
2. Heat the sesame oil in a wok, throw in the garlic and ginger, stir fry till fragrance. Throw in the spring onion and stir fry for a few secs.
3. Throw in the sliced pork liver and add in the Shao Hsing Hua Diao rice wine and light soy sauce. I mix these in a bowl before hand and just pour it in at 1 shot.
4. Stir fry quickly and dish up to serve.


Stir Fried French Beans & Luncheon Meat
* 150g French Beans
* 1 tsp Minced Garlic (I used 1 clove)
* 1 Tbsp Light Soy Sauce (I left this out)
* Pinch of Salt (I left this out too since I think the luncheon meat is salty already)
* 100ml Chicken Stock or 1/2 Chicken Stock Cube dissolved in 100ml Water (I only use a teeny weeny bit of chicken stock cube)
* 1 tsp Cornflour mixed with 1 tbsp Water

1. Slice the french beans diagonally. (I use hand to break them, doing it while watching tv lol)
2. Heat a little cooking oil in a wok. (I use olive oil, my preferred choice)
3. Stir-fry the luncheon meat till slightly crispy. Put them aside.
4. Stir-fry garlic until fragrant.
5. Stir-fry the french beans and when the french beans start looking a little translucent, add the luncheon meat
6. Simmer for 3 minutes until the vegetables are cooked through but remain crunchy. (You may have to add a little water if the sauce has reduced excessively.)
7. Serve.

I have a great time cooking this afternoon :) though I feel tired after coming back from daddy's office.
