Foodie Friday - Brushing up my skill on cooking SIMPLE

If you follow my blog, you will know that I cook quite frequently, a meal of 3 veggie & 1 soup is easy peasy for me.  However I find it challenging to cook a pot of simple noodle meal; of course instant noodle does not count, don't ask me why as I am clueless too.

Anyway I was on half day leave couple of weeks ago and was recently inspired by Alicia on her $10 meals, I decided to try my hands on cooking some noodle for DinoEgg since daddy will be attending his weekly meeting.  However turned out that daddy was not feeling well and took medical leave, did not even tell me, came home and saw him.  Actually wanted to let DinoEgg be my guinea pig on my noodle meal but alas... guess daddy has to be roped in involuntarily too.

I stopped by NTUC around 5pm+ and was afraid I couldn't find any fresh prawns but I was surprise to find them.  I quickly grabbed the stuffs that I need and headed home before fetching DinoEgg from school.  And after hiding in the kitchen for 45mins, the yee mian is done!

PS : Photo is super blur, too hungry to have a steady hand to shoot the photo.  I tried my best to sharpen it but still not good enough. 

  • Prawns (approx 8) - $2.70
  • 1 packet of xiao bai choy - $0.60
  • 1 packet of fish cake - $1.20
  • 1 packet of seaweed - $2
  • 1 packet of yee mian - $1.30
  • crab stick - bought for yesterday's meal not sure how much
Total amount $7.80

Both daddy & DinoEgg says the noodle is tasty but i think the soup base is not starchy enough and too bland, noodle a bit over cooked.  The prawns are really fresh and sweet, xiao bai choy was cooked just right.  Overall its a PASS but I think I can do better.
