Chinese New Year, Australia Day or not, a pharmacist works for bread and butter.
And Vegemite, of course.
Thank goodness I start an hour later today, that gives me some time to blog about my Chinese New Year cooking / eating dinner feast.
KT asked me to cooked loh hon chai ( a vegetarian dish) and a fish dish (fish in Chinese sounds the same as abundance).
I pestered my mother for a loh hon chai recipe, and tried it out yesterday night. Great success. :) KT was satisfied.
Fish dish? Oh, not so great success. I wanted to do a salt-crusted snapper, but the Donna Hay recipe turned out too salty. I have to look for a better recipe.
We had sambal prawn, too. Very great success. Spicy to the max. My nosed leaked like a burst pipe. So spicy that my stomach did acrobatics in the toilet, too. Not so appetising.
Chinese New Year morning? A staple - fried battered nian gao with sweet potato. Yummy. And the too salty fish? Fish porridge. Also yummy.
