I was at The Salad Bar again. Am I boring you? My original intention was to eat at Lohas, a cafe that serves organic vegetarian food. You see, I wanted to do penance for overindulging at a buffet the day before. What buffet? The buffet served during a conference. Yes, I'm all about the food. Conference and seminars means food and more food.

For as long as I remember, Sweet and Sour Pork is a dish I always fantasized about throughout my childhood. This dish I never ate at home. It was only to be had on the rare occasion when my dad took us to a Chinese restaurant. As such, it was a dish to be savored whenever the opportunity arose.

I am forever thinking of ways to finish up my buttermilk. Again, I had some leftover buttermilk and I remembered a recipe for Ranch Dressing. If I am not mistaken, the Southwestern Egg Rolls at Chilis is served with Ranch Dressing. I love that dip! You will see me poking my egg roll into that little vial of dip, trying to get at every drop.

These meatballs were something to look forwards to during Chinese New Year back in the good old days. The good old days when my mum and my late grandma did the cooking for our family reunion dinner. The good old days when my late grandpa would be busy topping up the stock of soft drinks in the store room. The good old days when my siblings, cousins and I looked forwards to collecting ang pows.

The other day I took a day off from work. It's good to take a day off once in a while to rest my mind. Besides, my parents were coming for a visit and I wanted to get a head start on the weekend cooking. So what else, I went ingredient shopping. But I got distracted and detoured because something caught my eye.

This was lunch one weekend with my parents (visiting from KT), brother and uncle. Yes, the uncle who stopped me and my brother from ordering our usual feeding-frenzy-sized orders the last time we were at Kar Hiong hah..hah... But we are fond of him and we invite him along at every opportunity we get.
