Today I was feeling lazy. In fact I thought about Grabfood. But then again, I have so much food in the freezer and I wanted to clear them off.
Besides, there was still a packet of brinjals (designated for another round of sambal terung) that was still untouched. So instead of ordering food, I decided to (finally) try out the frozen Unagi Kabayaki that I ordered from VFresh. As for the brinjals, I made a (not very successful) Japanese soy glazed brinjals.
This is the frozen Unagi Kabayaki. Some years back I used to see similar BBQ eel at the chiller section at Aeon supermarket. I never bought but my brother did and if I remember correctly, he said it was OK but not like the ones at the restaurant.
There are 3 methods to reheat as per the instructions on the packaging. With benefit of hindsight (since this was an on the spur decision) I could have defrosted the eel overnight. So I followed the oven method but found that the eel was still cold after 8 minutes in the oven.
This is before reheating.
I ran out of spring onions and other suitable salad veggies hence the cucumber slices. The Unagi Kabayaki was very chewy and springy, a QQ texture if you know what I mean. Like mochi hah..hah... Tastewise, I think it is OK and there was quite a bit of sauce in the packet.
As for my soy glazed brinjals, I need to experiment some more and make some adjustments. Overall, this was a nice meal.
Now, want to hear a funny story? A friend volunteered to buy us face shields. You know lah, Selangor got the highest Covid-19 cases so my partner thought we needed the extra protection.
Then this message came in.
hah..hah... So Reanaclaire, you are not the only one. There is an uncle in Petaling Jaya who is also blur sotong hah..hah..hah...
So how do I look?
And to think that I used to (secretly) laugh at people who wore face shields (last year) because I felt that they were overdoing it. Haiz....
This is Girl on the evening that Belle Belle refused to come inside.
Then last night Belle Belle decided to come in for her dinner. At around 9pm (she was upstairs) I carried her and put her in her cage.
Daddy, being pro-Belle Belle decreed that his favorite should be allowed outside her cage and be free to sleep anywhere she pleased. So mommy gwai gwai let Belle Belle out (but made sure to close the study room door in case daddy's favorite decided to mess around with the computer cables).
So this happened.
