I was on leave yesterday because I had to take Kenzie boy back from my parent's place, and after that, took him for his 2.5 year old jab at his paed's (2nd dose of Hep A). He stayed at my parent's from Sunday evening until yesterday afternoon as his nursery closed from Monday til yesterday.
Anyway, back to this post. When you see the word "rojak", no no no, it doesn't mean I marinated the chicken with the black rojak sauce. Haha. It means I marinated the chicken with anything available at my kitchen counter, and chuck in with whatever vegetables I could find in the fridge.
My all-time favourite McCormick's Italian Herbs spices have finished. So for the marinate, I make do with: Soya sauce, pepper, oyster sauce and Lea & Perrin's sauce. I also chuck in some lemon, an onion, carrots and potatoes for taste. Before baking (at 190 degrees for 1 hour), I threw in a blob of butter for the extra rich-ness.

And since I did not go to work yesterday, I made the effort and cooked more varieties for dinner, because usually on weekdays, I don't cook, as it's already late when I reach home from work. The hubs cooks, because he usually reaches home earlier. And normally it's just "chin tan chau choy" kinda food. Or I call it the 3F's (Fried egg, Fried fish, Fried vege) kinda food.
So, for my own record, I also cooked these for dinner yesterday:
|Chicken herbal soup ("yoke zhok" & "pak kei")|
|Minced pork taufu|
|Bittergourd fried egg|
