Lockdown Day #56 : What I Have Been Eating

I have not been cooking anything fancy lately. My mood for cooking has been somewhat flagging and when that happens I always fall back on the easy stuff.


I made sandwiches using sourdough bagels. 


I must say that these were so good!


Paired with a simple salad.


The next day I had the same. Again, so good!


hee..hee...hee... mee goreng pedas!


Another thing I like to cook is soups, using bone broth. See how gelatinous it is.


I used it to cook kimchi jigae but using store bought kimchi. It did not taste as good as the one cooked using homemade kimchi.


This one is a regular soup with meat, vegetables and beancurd sheets.


I had the same thing today. Simple and good.

I want to eat more soups and revisit some exciting soups I cooked in the past like Sop Buntut and Mushroom and Barley Soup.

  2. Yet to go and get the sourdough bread here to try, so lazy to go out! Your bagels look good! What's inside? Ham?

    1. The sandwich filling is made up of beef salami, cheese, cucumbers and tomatoes. And I used Kewpie sandwich spread. And not forgetting mustard and chili sauce. LOL!

  3. Wish I could be lazy and simply cook whatever I fancy. But with 3 growing kids, it is hard. But someday a simple instant noodle or spaghetti would do. Depends on this mummy's mood and that day schedule. Lol.

  5. At first I thought those were donuts, hee hee. Homecooked soups are always so comforting and I saw tofu in your soups, my favourite!

  6. I know. I know. Everyone's mood is flagging and food has become tasteless to me everyday. That's why I started to shake all the crystals in my house and swing them kesana kesini. Suddenly my mood came back and I even went to paint a whole new creative wall for our new place.

    I saw your bagels and sop buntut. My eyes went bigger than my buntut. I want to eat them tomorrow as it has been years I missed them la.

  7. Love the look of all of those veggies in your soup. Where did you get your sourdough bagels from? They look good.

    1. The sourdough bagels were purchased online from Bengbeng Sourdough, all the way from Kota Bahru, Kelantan!

    1. Now that you asked me, I am wondering too. LOL! Maybe I can do a post on that :)

  9. I'm also getting cooking fatigue from almost 2 months of MCO and now resorts to cooking very simple dishes (so no need to show lah...hehe), tapau or order from Sally's Kitchen. I love having soups too coz they're easy to make but since running out of my stash of choi yin kai, I don't make them anymore. That's because my chicken vendor at the wet market is not allowed to open and I'll have to wait for the market to reopen before I can stock up again. I took your suggestion to put black pepper into my Chinese-style soup and I have to say I liked it. ^_~

  11. I had never tried sourdough bagels yet. How does it taste like? Dan nampak macam best juga bila ianya jadi sandwich.
