Foodie Fridays - 3 dish + 1 soup dinner for us

I have been feeling under the weather recently, not so great when it happened on Christmas eve, I have no appetite to stomach any food.  When I finally feel well enough on 29 Dec'12 I suddenly have a craving for rice!  So I went about to gather the ingredients for that night's dinner.

I went to the neighbourhood NTUC and couldn't resist the fresh nai bai. It wasn't often that I get to lay my hands on such fresh and big ones.  I decided to stir fried it with the mushrooms as both DinoPapa & DinoBoy loves them.

I grabbed a few of the fresh prawns, they will taste sweet & delicious when I steamed them.  Well it did not turned out quite well, not enough sour plum sauce but nonetheless still delicious.

Its been a while since I had sea bass, so to curb my cravings I bought one home.

DinoBoy has been coughing for the pass month, it went away and came back again.  Its the festive seasons, difficult to stop him from eating sweets and all the goodies.  Therefore I decided to boil a soup to help him to recover from his cough.  According to my soup book gingko helps to clear phlegms, rid lungs of heatiness and also the body's heatiness.  Great soup for DinoBoy who is "heaty" now.
