A random one

So, another week has passed and school holiday is almost come to an end.  I am sure the kids will be having a BIG Monday blue next Monday morning!! 
The baby sitter gave my daughter a new quilt last week.  She sewn a bigger size for her this round.  Fit for a single bed. 

Thank you so much to baby sitter for her thoughtful gift
I spent few minutes cleaning and arranging my book shelves this morning.  Took out 2 recipe books from the shelf for some recipe inspiration as I don't usually make Western soup and food that often. Sometimes it is good to refer to cook books when you are running out of ideas on what to cook. 

I am going to catch up on my DVDs in the quiet afternoon.  Currently hooked to "Grimm" series amd I am at Disc 4 although just started to watch it on Tuesday morning. I am going to get my hand on the Season 2 this weekend as I am left with one disc to go. 
This is my today's lunch!!

Both kids are in baby sitter's house today.  They want to be there because they can play, watch tv and lazy around without me nagging them to do some school works.  Lol!  Since no one is at home, I cooked myself fried rice for lunch.  There is some leftover nam yue deep fried chicken wings from last night, so I heat them up and eat with my fried rice. 

Rose' fried rice


Overnight cooked rice (break the rice up)
Dried anchovies, soaked and rinsed

1. Add 3 tbsp. cooking oil in a wok.  Once heated up, add in shallot and garlic.  Saute for few seconds till fragrant.  Add in the anchovies.  Saute for few seconds or till anchovies are crispy.
2. Add the beaten egg and give it a quick stir to break the egg into smaller pieces.
3. Add the Xiao pai chai.  Mix all the ingredients in the wok.
