Fast food

I didn't plan to cook today. Just wanted to go to the hawker downstairs and buy lunch. I just been feeling so lethargic lately. But of course I didn't get my way. Princess demanded rice! Just white rice, and tomatoes, and chicken please... Ok, ok.

It was pretty quick to prepare. Rice took about 10mins to cook, just cut up some tomatoes, and put chicken nuggets in micro then browned in wok.

A friend told me about these little buns, very healthy kind with flaxseed, wheat bran, wheat flour etc. I have to say they taste super healthy too. Don't be fooled by the pic on package. It's only a tiny dollop of filling in them. They are quite nice, but the skin tastes a bit like paper. Steamed a couple for myself and gave princess a bite. She said she liked them. Here I have posted a pic of the pumpkin one, as the green paste one, erm, I don't think you'd want to see the inside of it. It reminds me of .... erm... something not too edible.

I also found these in Daiso the other day. I think they are fantastic as you can scoop rice out directly from rice cooker using them. Previously I had to scoop rice into bowl and fill the moulds first before turning them out onto plate.

Hi there! Was wondering..where is Daiso located? It sells bakeware? Thanks....:) Btw...keep up ur gud work!

Hi maya, thanks for visiting. Are you located in Singapore? Daiso has three outlets. The main one is in IMM, and the other two are at Vivo City and Plaza Singapura. Hope that helped. It doesn't sell bakeware alone. It's a $2 shop (yes, everything in there sells for $2) and it sells everything you can imagine. There's Japanese crockery, things for the home, stationery, toys, gardening stuff, everything for the home basically. Check it out.
