To be honest, I haven’t been praying hard for my cough. To sleep better at night, I took all kinds of over-the-counter drugs to suppress the cough at night. When drugs did not work, I tried drinking barley water and steamed asian pear with rock sugar.
However, I slept well last night. I only started coughing when I woke up this morning. I have a feeling that someone else must have been praying for me. My angels, thank you for your prayers.
Yummy Homemade Food
I used my bread machine to make this last night using Lily‘s recipe. I improvised her recipe a little. Instead of making a hole in the middle, I just left it whole. I named mine Chinese Donut because the taste reminded me of the chinese donuts that chinese buffet usually serves. I made at least 15 but are you surprise that there are no left overs?
This recipe is real simple to make. I just throw all the ingredients into my bread machine, set it to “dough” setting and push the start button. After the bread machine beeps, I take it out and cut into smaller pieces. My daughters helped me shape them into rounds and roll each round piece into flat 2 inch pieces. Even the baby was helping out. Fun project to do with kids. When the donut is cooked, you can coat it with sugar or dip it in condensed milk.
After posting this, I received comments about Ham Cheem Paeng. I thought, yeah, it does look and even taste a little like Ham Cheem Paeng.
Steam Fish (Topped with garlic, ginger, barbeque sauce/sa cha, soy sauce)
I steamed this fresh tilapia in my rice cooker for about 10 minutes. Again, another simple dish to make. I had to cut the fish into pieces because my rice cooker cannot accomodate the fish as a whole.
The key to delicious steam fish is you have to start with fresh fish. The best fish to buy, is fish that is still swimming in the tank. However, if that is not available, make sure the fish’s eye is not blurry. I learned that from my husband! I think he is a pro when it comes to fish. The scales are left on the fish as long as possible to preserve the freshness. Since removing scales from the fish is messy, you can ask the fish monger to clean the fish for you.
