East Meets West

This is what I served most of the time from our kitchen. My hubby will have his Western food and I will have my Asian food. Sometimes I wonder if any of you face the same problem as me :) I don't mind having Western food but I still need my Malaysian food from time to time. Hubby don't mind Chinese food either as long as is American Chinese food (from the Chinese buffet) because to him our Malaysian food are simply too strong smell and flavour . But I am lucky in many ways because he is not fussy eater. I can just prepared him a simple salad or a sandwich and for me will be a bowl of fried rice or noodles.

My plate of Char Kueh Teow :)

Carlos plate of roast chicken sandwich :)
I will post the recipe later.

You are so hard working. Preparing two meals !
Both I like.
Have a nice weekend.

Rita Ho said...

Gert ... you cooked a square egg to match your plate, lovely touch! Are those tomatoes from your garden? I think I'll have both meals, please. :)

I Cook4Fun said...

Envy, you are lucky that your hubby even eats kankong belacan :)If is Carlos he will lari cepat cepat.

Jun, is so weird sometime. Kita nak Malaysian food and your kids suka pulak western food. We should switch place :)

Isha, we are in the same boat :)

Nonya, what I prepare is usually something simple. You too have a good weekend.

Rita, I didn't even notice that the egg is square :) yeap the cherry tomatoes if from the garden. Is really sweet.

PJ, we are n the same boat. Sometime I pun pening kepala jugak untuk Carlos.

Beachlover, your CKT a lot of 'liew' mine only prawns :) aiyoh, if I cook bak kut teh I think Carlos will stay in the basement whole day long :) :)

Lia, susah jugak ya marrying someone outside our own kind race :)

Sue, here see hum comes frozen and is like eating rubber. Once a while I can see the fresh one in Chinatown but too expensive. Is like $5.99 a pound. For the shell itself weight a pound so not worth buying it.

Pearly, at least you cook western food for a few person me only cook for one.

Cat Cat said...

Ms eNVy said...

By the way Gert, my dearest do draw the line when it comes to durian .. so PJ no need to envy me hehehe .. even durian wafer makes my dh feels sick! :)

PrincessJournals said...

Envy, hahah. not many ppl can stand the smell. michael wil help me open it and freeze them quickly so tht he doesnt have to endure the smell.

I Cook4Fun said...

Hi,

I am M'sian Chinese and my hubby is Caucasian. I do cook everyday (except weekends) and same as you, I enjoy Malaysian foods while he prefers western foods. But yeah, I am lucky too as he's not that fussy either :)

Anyway, I enjoy reading your blog. You are such an excellent cook!:)
