A home-cooked meal

I hate having to cook every day. It gives me a headache, and it doesn't help that nobody in the family can tell me what they want to eat for dinner. I was very sure I was going to make a pot of soup today and I also knew that I had xiao bai chye in the fridge from my last trip to the market. But the main dish was a bit stressful to come up with. I had a pineapple in the fridge, and finally decided that I'd do a pineapple chicken dish. So here you have it... bai chye with Foochow fishballs, carrots, and tofu soup. And a sweet and sour chicken stir fry with pineapples and assorted veggies.

jadepearl - Haha, have you heard of the dish called 'don't know?'. That's popular too. ;) Hehe, those are simple dishes. The sweet and sour dish is made with ready sauce so very simple. You can do it too. I think was Lee Kum Kee sauce. Ah... time to start baking those cookies!

I think all of your meals look incredible! You are too hard on yourself.
When I am told "I don't care" to my query about dinner, I tell hubby we will have liver and grilled eggplant (two things he does not like)...he says, "Don't want that..." and I tell him "So you DO care!" - he usually comes up with something then! Just a hint... ;o)
