I think I speak for every one in the DinoFamily that we are tired of eating outside food. Last Sunday even though I was feeling unwell I decided to cook dinner for us. As I did not want to tired myself I decided to go for dishes that are simple and easy to prepare. I took a peep in my fridge to see what I have stashed up inside and found chicken mid wings, 1 fish fillet, some pork ribs & carrots. Having made a mental note of the dishes I can prepare with these ingredients I made my way to the supermarket to gather the additional ingredients.
Besides the soup that was prepared earlier that afternoon and took about 2 hours to be done, the other 3 dishes were done in minutes. It took me about 45mins finish cooking the dishes and we had an unexpected early dinner that day. Here are our simple 3 dish + 1 soup home cooked dinner.

Since DinoBoy requested for my air-baked chicken wings I granted his wish that day but this time the chicken wings did not taste as nice. The additional 5 more minutes of air-baking to achieve a golden look had caused the skin to be too dry, as you can see from the photo.
My mum used to prepare this dish and I love it, the only difference between her version and mine are the missing baby corn & sliced mushrooms. This is cooked with some oyster sauce, a little salt and sugar, it is then thicken with corn flour and bring to boil. A quick dish since the sliced fish & prawns takes only a few minutes to be cooked.
Occasionally we craved for herbal soup but sometimes, like that Sunday, I don't have the time to gather the necessary ingredients so I just grab a packet from the supermarket. This Liuwei tang 六味汤; literally translated as "six-taste soup" is a sweet soup used for clearing "heat"
I am a vegetable lover but I am really bad with identifying green leafy vegetables. I can easily recognise xiao bai cai, choy sum, wolfberry leaves, kai lan but the rest are a blur to me. I stir-fried these with a little bit of Knorr chicken seasoning and sprinkled some fried shallots after I dished them.
