once upon a norza

i am norza and this is my blog

what's for dinner?

Cooking for Aisyah can be a headache because she prefers eating different dishes for her meals so I have to do some creative cooking. With the recent round of pox that she had, chickens and eggs are a no-no so I had a bit of a challenge to come up with various dishes with fish alone. I introduced her to fish curry and korma dishes while mil taught me how to cook dhal+vege last week. But I think Aisyah's mild diarrhea was due to this new food introduction. *oops*

But I notice she finishes her food faster when it's cooked berempah. She seldom finishes cheesy stuffs like mac+cheese. Well, she used to like lasagne but she finds it a bore now and never finishes it. Although I'm a noob in cooking, we very seldom let Aisyah eat outside food because homecooked food is definitely better (although can be a tad more expensive and time-consuming!).

Her typical weekly food list looks like this:

Egg omelette
Fish soup
Salmon bagedil *potato cakes*

Chikin nuggets
Sayor lemak
Fried kurau

Egg omelette
Bening sayor *vege soup: can be spinach, cabbage, any vege*
Fish nugget

Chikin soup
Assam fish

Macaroni with tomato pasta sauce
Curry fish with bening

*thinks hard of a dish*

Breakfast usually consist of bread+cheese (jam or honey)/pancakes/biskots and milk. I don't usually follow my list closely and this acts as a guide. It's more of a mix-n-match actually and I'm trying to cook dishes which everyone can eat too. Fortunately the kanda loves simple dishes like rice+bening+ikan goreng or just penne+pastasauce so it makes my life easier.

I know there are online sites and books for recipe but sometimes I really need an inspiration. What are you cooking for your lil one(s) anyway?

well, i havent started cooking for Gibran yet but i love cooking so i just wanted to suggest some new dishes for you to try out on the little one (hope you dont mind :D)...

- fishball and fishcake soup, cooked with chicken stock, salt, pepper and a dash of kicap. I just "celur" some veges like sawi / bak choy to eat with the soup. very easy on the stomach and tasty with noodles or rice.

- chicken stir-fried with broccoli. i chop up some garlic, use veryyy little olive oil to fry the garlic, add in the chicken, add in broccoli (splashing water in as necessary along the way). put in some oyster sauce, a dash of kicap and salt and pepper (sometimes a little bit of chicken stock too; liquid form or the cube/powder type). good with rice.

- baked salmon with herbed potatoes. for the salmon; i just put in on a large piece of aluminium baking foil, season it with salt, pepper, dill (the dry herb type), a dash of lemon juice. wrap tightly in foil and bake at 180 degrees for about 20 minutes. for the potatoes; i cut em potatoes into pieces, boil em, drain em, then chuck em into a spot of butter, then season veryyy lightly with a little italian herbs and cracked black pepper (not too much seasoning or else bleahhh).

do email me if u wanna talk food yeah?! :D

wahh ignorant me has to google the word 'sayur bening' nak tgk rupa mcm mana! lol

hey, our menus look the same la.. hihi nowadays i became lazy & let nunu eat whatever the babysitter is cooking for the family.

fishball soup is definitely a treat. i've made some using dory fillets.

what about the simple nasi goreng? mee goreng? bihun goreng? super easy! and does she like mushrooms? consider that coz nunu looooves her mushrooms (stimes she picks at them & leave the chicken bits out!)
