Remember when I concealed the packet of Maggi from my grocery run last week?
Well,that may not have been the extent of my
deceit misleading you.
I said I cooked “nothing special anyway”, but actually, this was Sunday’s dinner:
I’m pretty sure you could only identify one out of the three components in this plate from my grocery basket. Let me walk you through each and every one of them now…
I was going to grab a bag of frozen green peas, intending to make some sort of mushy peas for the fish and chips that I intended to make. But I was attracted by the sight of the frozen sweet corn kernel packs next to the peas, so…
Nothing elaborate done to the corn. I did exactly what those highway R&R guys do: cook them for a few minutes with melted butter.
Also, I did not do any fish and chips. I did end up buying fish, but they went into the bowl of noodles with veggies you saw in my veggie post earlier this week.
Yeah, you probably saw the broccoli in the basket. Nothing fancy here. Just stir fried with garlic and oyster sauce.
These lovely mutton patties were made from, well… minced mutton. Nothing extraordinary with the preparations and cooking here too. I just marinated them with salt and pepper for a few hours, then formed them into two patties, and chucked them onto the flat pan for 10 minutes on medium heat each side.
The thing fancy here is the origin of the mutton. There was a sticker label on the packaging saying TRUE AUSSIE MUTTON. These 2 patties costed me RM 9.20.
I mean, look! They’re cooked through! This means 10 minutes each side is long enough of a cooking time. 😀
I was a great dinner though. I think if you dine in a fancy restaurant, you’ll probably get the equivalent of 1 patty, half the corn and half the broccoli for RM 25 or more. My dinner of twice as much food was probably about RM 15 including the electric power used when cooking.
Also, I had a tough weekend, so it is totally fine to eat two portions of food for dinner. Don’t judge me!
