Catch of the Day

Last Thursday, Daddy went "prawning" (prawn-fishing) after work with his colleagues and came home with these...

22 big-headed freshwater prawns (don't know what they are called)

Some of them were still kicking and very much alive! Surprisingly, I was brave enough to lift them up and play with them

That night, we had an unusual late-night snack. Mummy chose a few dead ones, wrapped them in an aluminium foil and dumped them into the oven...

Baked prawns with butter and cheese (grated Parmesan)

Mmmm... finger-lickin' good. I LOVE prawns!

The rest put up a few nights in the freezer until today, when mummy attempted to cook prawn noodles for the very first time. It turned out not too bad :)

My portion... prawn beehoon with homemade fish cake, hard-boiled egg and spinach (mummy replaced the kang-kung with spinach)

Mummy's portion... with dried-shrimp chilli

  10. Shenny's Mommy: Chloe was given only half an egg cos her bowl was already full of "liu" and mummy was afraid that she might not be able to finish everything. Moreover, she already had 1 egg for lunch on the same day :)

    JC: Yes, "prawning" after work. It was organized by the company. The winning team with the highest number of prawns even won a hamper. Too bad, daddy's team didn't win haha.
