Eggs Eggs EGGS!!!


Went to the Pasar Malam (night market) yesterday and bought a whole lot of eggs. My sister-in-law looked at me and asked 'Can you REALLY finish the whole tray of eggs?'

Of course we can! We are an extremely egg-loving family! We egg everything!

Half boiled eggs is our favorite! When perfectly done, you dip a piece of bread into it and then tuck the soaked piece of bread into your salivating mouth...oh geez...that is what heaven is made off. Half-boiled eggs. And it is filling too. Sometimes, if I skip my breakfast (not because I want to but because I don't have the time for it), I pop two eggs into the soft-boiled eggs maker and a couple of minutes later...VIOLA...perfect lunch. During my early partying days, a bowl of two soft-boiled eggs was also midnight snack. It works any time, anywhere.

Hard boiled eggs. I like hard boiled eggs too but one of my boys don't. There is beauty in hard-boiled eggs too, darling, but never mind, soft-boiled it is. I will have mine hard. Please chlorox your brain.

Poached eggs.Darn. This is something that I love and have yet to master. Yes, I know that it involves some vinegar and you are to leave it alone and not touch it while it cooks and all that jazz but some parts of it sticks to the bottom of the wok (it is a STICK one, not a NON-STICK wok. I have something against non-stick stuff) and there is HELL in scrubbing the bits that stuck away. And if you don't do it properly, the poached egg is slightly sour.

Sunny side up! Yup yup yup! Love it, love it, love it. I will eat all the white parts away and then save the yolk for the last. The best part is the worst part, I know. Why does unhealthy things have to taste so good, right? This world is screwed up like that.

Cakes and all types of baked stuff have eggs in them. I have yet to see or find a recipe that does not require eggs. Have you? I don't really know about this one.

Steamed meat. Although I don't think an egg is an integral part of the recipe but I think with an egg, the meat rocks better. =)

Patties and meatballs. Breadcrumbs and eggs. Patties are made with these, man! My favorite too, I am telling ya.

I am sure I left some stuff out but I have to get back to work now. So yes, I think we can finish the tray of eggs in no time.

I am so egg love with eggs.

XOXO,
Marsha

Maid Side-Kick

I was kind of a little sad when I read the news about this - there will be no live-in Indonesian maids in Malaysia anymore.

There are pros and cons to having a live-in maid, as with everything else, but for us, we enjoyed more pros than cons. Back then, when my kids were little, we brought in a family of maids to help with...well, just about everything, and we were like two families merged into one. They ate what we ate, we sleep, they sleep, we shop, they shop, they joke, we laugh, we joke, they laugh...for me, the maid I hired was more like a sister and side-kick to me.

For that few years, I was dependent on her to mind-read my schedule and when I need or don't need help. She picked things up quickly and we ended up having lots of moments whereby we were in sync. Today, two of them are on my Facebook and we were gleefully chatting over Facebook Messenger since they've just discovered the wonders of the Internet and Social Media.

Since we were more like partners in crime, I f…

It's The Hormones Slinging All Over Ryan Gosling

Every time I do this, you know I'm PMS-ing. I am usually quite sane and well-behaved. I promise you this. But..... After watching The Notebook, I am fully convinced that Ryan Gosling is not a man. He's sex. Pure sex. And love, of course. I knew that.I love Ryan Gosling whether he looks like he just woke up on an island....ESPECIALLY when he's half-naked!!!!I love him even if he's kissing someone other than me (who he SHOULD be kissing)I love him even when he's got literally no hair.I love him eventhough without the beard thing, he looks like a schoolboy still growing out his pubic hair.I love Ryan Gosling to the core and then you tell me one other thing to make me fall in love with him even more! I feel signs of a mild heart attack already!He plays the piano. He sings. And he sings to KIDS for Halloween!I mean.....aawwwwww......how come we good women who are only sometimes a teeny weeny bit (and I mean really tiny bit) bitchy never get one of these? What?! We DO …

Grilled Salmon With Unagi Sauce

I always disagree with people who say that they are lazy to cook, it's too hard, no time, too difficult, easier to eat out....etc. I can't agree because I have found multiple ways to cook simple, cheap meals without causing too much of a ruckus to my schedule. All it takes is a little bit of planning ahead and research. And a sense of humor when it turns out...to put it nicely...sucks.

Anyway, here's one simple one that ANYONE (kids included) can cook up. Seriously simple and easy.


I love salmon but my kids don't like the smell and texture. But that doesn't mean that I can't go out to the market and spend RM11 on ONE single piece of salmon fish and make MYSELF one, right? Kids can have the overnight pizza. :-)
This is fresh from the market....man oh man! I LOVE IT!!
Wash it properly, de-bone the thing if you want to but I just left everything the way it is and just covered the fish with some of the following:-

Yup, salt, pepper and McCormick's season-all powder…
