Breakfast : Fried rice with salted dried tiny silver anchovies

Nasi Goreng Teri / Fried Rice with Dried Whitebait

What is the easiest menu for breakfast ? My answer is fried rice. You can make fried rice with ingredients you have in the fridge. Corn, chicken, sausage, meat balls, egg, oyster sauce, chili, garlic, onion, and I am sure you can find them all in the fridge. All you need to do is mix them all, cook and serve it. Simple (or am I just lazy ?!). :)

Sunday morning, raining, I feel like I wasn't in the mood to go to the market. But my son and hubby has to eat something for breakfast. Luckily, I have a plastic of salted dried tiny silver anchovies. just perfect for fried rice.

In the place where I live, we can meet salted dried fish stall everywhere from traditional market to hyper mart. Warm rice, salted dried fish and shrimp paste sambal (sambal terasi), those foods really work to whet my appetite. *I'm mouth watering right now

Here's the recipe of my version of fried rice. I like to cook without a recipe, just follow my kitchen instinct.

Eid Mubarak

Eid Mubarak

Terkadang lidah salah mengucap
Terkadang hati salah menduga
Terkadang mata salah melihat
Terkadang telinga salah mendengar

Di hari yang fitri ini, sudi kiranya kau buka pintu maafmu untukku
Agar lapang jalanku, agar ringan langkahku

Selamat Hari Raya idul Fitri
Mohon maaf lahir dan bathin

Happy Anniversary...

Wedding Anniversary

"...Through the years, through all the good and bad
I know how much we had, I've always been so glad to be with you
Through the years
It's better every day, you've kissed my tears away
As long as it's okay, I'll stay with you

Through the years..."

(by Kenny Rogers)

Yup, today is my 8th wedding anniversary. Nothing fancy, no party, no cake, no special dinner, only me and my son, Raihan. Honestly, my husband forgot that today is our anniversary. :) But that's okay, since we've been busy with our work at the office. And, also, we have never celebrate this day since our first anniversary. So why bother ? Having him always there for me to support, cuddle and give me hugs is enough.

Speaking of Ramadhan, of course it's still in the air. Day 22, 8 more days before the end of Ramadhan. But I still have one more recipe for Lubna Karim with her foodie event "Joy from fasting to feasting - III". (I hope she's okay with it :))

I found this recipe from Kraft recipe book. What could I make with ingredients that I already had on hand ? Easy to make mung bean pudding is a good choice and making cheddar cheese sauce is definitely new for me. With my "always ready to help assistant", a.k.a my son, I cooked this pudding in only 1 hour :)
