Millet Steamed Cake 小米糕

I like making Millet porridge once in a while for breakfast, I like the unique nutty flavor that it has and its high nutrient value is definitely a plus. One good choice for healthy plant base diet.

Making it into steamed cake is another way to enjoy this delicious healthy grain.

Mashed Potato with minced meat gravy 肉末土豆泥

My son A is not a big fan of potato unless it is cooked in a certain way. This mashed potato with minced meat and gravy is one of them. 

I normally served it with some steamed vegetables, which makes it a complete meal for a little boy.

Stuffed Red Dates with Sticky Rice Balls 心太软

I made Gold Fish Tang Yuan for winter solstice and have some left over glutinous rice dough that I freeze up. Since "Storm Cyclone" is in town and the temperature plummet to a single digit. 

It is time to thaw my glutinous rice dough and make yummy snacks with red dates and stay warm!

Enoki Mushrooms & Sliced Beef Soup 肥牛金针菇

We don't normally eat beef, let alone cooking at home. I wanted to buy some sliced mutton last week for hotpot, but brought sliced beef back instead. Since I also bought a few packets of Enoki mushrooms, I made this spicy soup for lunch, a perfect dish in bitter cold weather.


刚好超市里的金针菇买一送一,我也买了好几包。那就做我很喜欢的酸汤肥牛金针菇吃吧!大冬天的吃完全身暖暖的, 很舒服。

Since I am craving for some dumplings and it is winter soltice yesterday, I made this fish and Chinese chive filling jiaozi for lunch and Gold fish glutinous rice balls in gingery syrup for dessert.

That makes 2017 winter solstice celebration a "Fishy fish theme"
