My favourite simple dish ever.

If you ask me, what my favourite dish in the entire world is… my answer would be….

i LOVE this dish a lot a lot.

There are only 4 main ingredients in this dish. Spaghetti, olive oil, garlic and chilli flakes.

So simple. so delicious. i cannot wait to eat this again.

All you need to do is cook your spaghetti.

In a frying pan, add good quality olive oil, add a copious amount of garlic (unless you don't love garlic as much as me, then just a suitable quantity will do) and as much or as little chilli flakes as you like. Over a low flame, just infuse the flavours for a few minutes, not letting the garlic burn.

Then, add in the spaghetti, with a little of its' cooking water and mix away. Remember to add salt and pepper.

It is also awesome if you can add some freshly grated parmesan cheese (i didn't have any on hand so i didn't add) – with or without, it is still delicious.

This has to be part of my last meal. Has to.

When Daddy and Min were here..

Daddy and Shi Min came over for a long weekend recently and we had loads of fun!

We went out, ate loads and basically chilled and enjoyed ourselves.

One day, after returning from Eastgardens – shi min wanted to eat fish and chips – we bought back some food items for dinner.

On that day, i also had a meat delivery from a new butchery that i was trying out. They were so nice, they even gave us a free pack of marinated chicken (it was so good – i will definitely purchase it in the future).

So, this is what we had for dinner.

We had a feast!

There was Char Siu which i marinated for 3 days and cooked that day. (Recipe in a future post)

To make it a little healthy – a bowl of sweet corn kernels – we later dressed it in a japanese sesame dressing.

I also ordered Country Chicken Sausages from the butcher and these tasted delicious! At the side, that black colour thing is the Russian Farmers' Sausage from Emundi Smokehouse.

Daddy fried a plate of unknown veggie. Very simply.

We bought 1/2 kg of prawns. which i couldn't eat (allergy) and fish couldn't eat (general dislike for seafood). i did try one or two though, and it was nice and sweet.

Oysters! Daddy and hui love their oysters! i used to only be able to stomach one or two, but these were so creamy and so good. They were expertly shucked too, so eating them was a breeze.

Fat and delicious. with a squeeze of lemon juice.

We had all these with a bowl of brown/white rice. Yum Yum.

We were all so full after this.
