I dislike buying perishables in big packs as I have problems finding fridge space.
Unless I have a second fridge :rotflmao:

inspired by GST talk to cook dinner.

Steamed pomfrets
Mapo tofu
Stir fried kailan and dou miao
Winter melon soup

I estimate that comes up to between $20-25.

I’m going to stir fry 7 types of vegetables (七样菜), a Teochew tradition on 初七人日 , for tonight’s dinner. I had the same dish last year and the taste was a tad weird.

Dinner menu:
1). 7 types of vege
2). Golden promfet
3). Braised pork belly.

Bought half kg of pork belly but by the time I finish trimming the fat, only left with 300g. Lol
