Kids' Favourite ~ Food on a Budget

May 04, 2009
Mr H said that I am being pathetic... and a Blogger addict... Well, my reasoning is simple.. our kids will not be staying with us forever.., one day they'll spread their wings and fly away. So I am documenting all these recipes (that we have tried and tasted) in this Blog for their easy reference in future.

I remembered when I was Danial's age, during year end school holidays, my mom gave us (my sisters and I) a chore to copy all her favourite recipes in her big, thick cover exercise book. Day and night... we copied and copied and copied... and now where is the book, one might asked?? Its with my brother!! Sad... no such technology ..30 years ago!!

Anyway....pathetic or it goes, kids... both of you loves ikan goreng and Masak Asam Sardine...

It is easy to cook....

Ikan goreng

Rub a little bit of salt and tumeric powder onto the fish. Deep fry until golden and crispy.
