Café during CB

So glad that we got a nice espresso machine last year. It made our stay-at-home days of 3 months a very nice one. While most people found it stifling, we enjoyed our home, especially with the continuous supply of coffee and food at our own cafe corner. I was too busy exploring recipes to feel bored 😄

Enjoying a long brunch on Saturday over some bubbly has become something we looked forward to after a week’s work at home.

Chinese spinach soup

Chinese spinach soup, which used to be just a simple homely dish, started to make its way into the hawker centres about 2 years ago. My mom often made this when I was small as it was easy to make – just garlic & ikan bilis (dried anchovies) for the soup base, then chinese spinach. Ours was the vegetarian version.

Unbelievably the stalls can survive by just selling spinach soup. Guess most of us are now into healthier meals and that contributes to its popularity. But they do have a fancier menu by letting diners customise their orders – different choices of staples (rice / noodle / bee hoon etc) and meat, with/without egg ……

So I did a similar one for our dinner tonight.
