Prawn & Asparagus

MamaFaMi was busy as a bee yesterday. And behaved well too. I didn't spend much time in front of the laptop. Surprise surprise.... not to your surprise but to mine! Hehehe...

In the morning I prepared the tart shells dough for orders and kept it in the fridge. Then with the endless house chores, cleaning, washing, cooking so on so forth. In between, sent and fetch Syahmi from tuition. From the tuition place, went to do the groceries at a nearby shop, with Syahmi's assistance.

After Zohor, drove to the post office to drop the Express Mail envelope into it's box and straight to the clinic to get my monthly medication. Then off to The Summit, just me and Fatin, no Kak Ana this time. We had to drive round and round, for I forgot how many times, to find an empty parking. I almost gave up but then, if we're meant to be there, then we will. Above all, I am very happy that I am able to park my car nicely in the parking lot, both at the clinic and The Summit.
You know what, ask me to drive to where ever, I think I will manage, but then, when I think of the parking, that normally puts me off! Hahaha... I still need to work on my parking huh?

At The Summit, we went to MPH Bookstore first, to collect the story book that Fatin had ordered. Then off to Popular Warehouse Sale on the 4th floor. I didn't buy anything. Not that I don't want to, but when I think of all my one whole cupboard full of books and magazines, I'd better not add more! But Fatin bought a basketful of novels and surprisingly, plus this one....

Will I be tasting her pasta soon? Let's just wait and see....

And this is Mr Alex Goh's latest bread book that I bought at Popular Bookshop at Sunway last Sunday....

Anyway, let's move to the recipe I wanted to share. Got it from Rinnchan's Fotopages . A simple recipe this time. I had never cooked asparagus before and this is my first time. It was Syahmi who actually makes me want to try cooking and eating asparagus. Thanks Rinn for the very simple yet yummy recipe....



2 bunches asparagus
200g prawns ~ cleaned
2 cloves of garlic ~ chopped
1 fresh red chillie ~ sliced
1 tablespoon oyster sauce
1 teaspoon ground blackpepper
cooking oil
2 dashes of sesame seed oil
salt to taste

Method :

1. Heat the wok and add in oil. When oil is hot, add in garlic and fry till fragrant.
2. Add in prawns and fresh red chillie. When the prawns changed to lighter color, add oyster sauce and ground blackpepper.
3. Add salt and a bit of water if necessary.
4. Add in a few dashes of sesame seed oil.
5. Last but not least, add in the asparagus. Stir for a few minutes and remove from heat.

Have a nice day everyone!
