Simple Dinner Affair :)



















This is one simple dinner affair we had last night.  We had a heavy lunch so we decided to have something simple and I whipped this up for us :p  Something colorful and something nice and something fragrant and a something refreshing soup to go with it.  Haha...yesss...colorful Luncheon Meat with Ham Omelette and the ever refreshing Mint Soup  :)  Just these two makes our simple dinner affair. No matter how simple the dishes are, it is up to one to make them colorful, tasty and mouthwatering :) and I love these quotes  " When baking, follow directions. When cooking, go by your own taste - Laiko Bahrs  and  "  Make food simple and let things taste of what they are " - Curnonsky



















You can have this Lucheon Meat with Ham Omelette ( made up of tinned luncheon meat with ham ( cut into cubes , chillies, onions and italian parsley and eggs ) as filling for sandwiches or eat with a bowl of hot congee or with piping hot rice. Real comfort food for us, when we want some simple and yet delicious .  Jo had this in her sandwiches and Daddy and myself had it with piping hot rice.  And I cooked Mint Soup to go with the omelette.  Mint leaves can be cooked in soup or make into omelette but for this once I made soup with them. If you have your own pot of mint plant , it would be very convenient.  And I am sure you can use them in your salad, in your soup and in your omelette anytime you want it...just pluck them from your garden . Beautiful herb and good for our body. It helps remove wind from the body and good for our digestive system :)   I know a lot of friends doesn't like mint leaves but lucky for the Piggies, this is their favourite herbs and they love it each time I cook soup or fry omelette with them.



















the green minty leaves are so fragrant  and 
the soup taste wonderful cooked with
lots of dried shrimps and garlic and
add in a few bird's eye chillies...mmmm


















a simple to prepare soup....refreshing and fragrant and 
the soup is so sweet with the dried shrimps and garlic....slurp slurp



 Enjoy and have a nice day :)

  1. I've made the exact same omelette with all the exact same ingredients!!!! But ever since trying to cut down on canned food, I have always substituted the luncheon meat for prawns, equally delicious! Mint soup is something very new to me though!
