湯圓.冰條.團年飯

今天又在公司泡'即食麵'作午餐,微波爐一開,熟識的麵香迎臉撲來,突然一陣小學生時代的回憶都隨著飄回來,二樓小店、長板凳、餐旦麵、碎牛肉麵... 曾在嗅味一篇寫過了地方氣味的影響,實在回憶也被嗅味挑着來作怪。

自小已聞說即食麵對身體無益,今天看 wikipedia 寫,原來即食麵也含'反式脂肪'啊,多食無益了。 話照說,即食麵却仍有買,兒時回憶另議。

下午把年夜飯用來包糖心湯圓餘下的一小團糯米又搓了幾粒,我一邊包一邊又想起母親以往常跟我說,「你要食湯圓好容易,屋企有糯米粉,幾分鐘搞掂...」

糯米粉好白,白得像雲、像夢、像煙。

感冒,特別口渴,身體貼著暖爐來吃冰條,想起紅豆冰。小時候自製紅豆冰條,把盛涼了的紅豆沙倒進八個四方格的冰架,再在方格內分別放一兩支牙籤,放進冰格一夜便成紅豆冰了。可是紅豆沙,要自己也來弄一盤。

週末邀請了幾個朋友來吃團年飯,加了一把勁造了幾個菜,沒有拍照,隨便寫下有 : 髮菜鮑螺煲雞湯、燒豬肉大义燒、上海白菜草菇伴煎豆腐、薑絲蒸雞、糖心湯圓。 還有什麼? 久別了的中菜氣氛。

你的團年飯好正呀,
發菜鮑螺煲雞湯正得暈啊!
yummy~~~~~

唔知點解冬天有一點食冰條的衝動,
明明凍到流鼻水,
但係都想食,
人就是這樣奇怪的動物了! =p

新鮮人: 謝謝你! 其實本來打算煲發菜瘦肉湯 清清地,不過晚了外出買菜,物都冇得賣 !! 好彩在唐人街有雞架賣,還是怕不夠味,所以加了一罐鮑螺頭湯囉,罐頭來吧了 :P

嘩,個湯好正呀,流晒口水﹗﹗你竟然可以買到髮菜﹗﹗我沒有弄湯圓呀,好,今晚要吃湯丸﹗

周游 said...

嘩原來你們個個都身懷廚房絕技!好厲害呀michelle!

natchan said...

我以前也試過像你那樣弄冰棒,不過是用可樂 :)

michelle said...

readandeat, 周游 : 多謝多謝兩位師奶,得個菜名都被你們讚得咁開心,你們真好人 :)

其實髮菜是回港時母親'迫'我帶走的 :P 回來後把它放了在一邊 差點忘記了。

natchan: 可樂也是好主意 ;)

hmm....I haven't made Chinese soup for a long long time. Years ago, I brought back some "cantonese soup packets" from Hong Kong. They were surprisingly good, either with chicken or pork bone.

Michelle, I haven't had a bad meal in Paris. You guys really know what good food is. Even a 10 Euro chicken from the store tastes 100 times better than the chickens here in the U.S. I am drooling with envy.

我好懶,最怕煲湯,太多嘢要洗了!!! 還是湯丸好!

michelle said...

exile: happy to hear that you ate well in Paris :) not every tourist has the same comment ;P

aulina: 想不到你不喜歡煲湯啊 :) 糕點補數啦 :D

The last time I cooked up a storm was before xmas when I was making a Moroccan meal. I haven't used special Chinese ingredients for quite a while.

Just like you, I make my own sweet red-bean popsicles which are not commercially available in this city!! The closest I can get from Chinatown is red-bean ice-cream.

michelle said...

Haricot: Moroccan meal !! i haven't try to make it yet... Have to do it one day (i was given some moroccan spices some time ago and still not using it...)

The Man Who Loves Everton said...

moroccan cuisine? wow cous cous. i remember that last year there was a french movie about a restaurant which serves cous cous.

michelle said...

The Man: are you talking about "La graine et le mulet" that i've just seen (see i've listed them in the column on the right) ? Did you see it too ? i quite like it!
