Grilled prawns, mee rebus and soup buntut! June was not just an amazingly fruitful baking month when I managed to bake a few lovely cakes and cookies with my new stand mixer...I also got plenty of cooking done with my boyfriend! The majority of the meals I share tend to be ones that I've either made for the family or made with le boyfriend! June was a delicious month trying out some new dishes both at home and outside.
June was a month where my appetite for many favorites got satiated! From trying a new burger place, to a yummy fried katsu lunch, a meal at chinatown and some delicious home made meals!
Continue below for my delicious month!
|Meals eaten for June 2015! (ox tail soup, mee rebus, beef wraps, japanese tonkatsu, home BBQ)|
|Of course we visited chinatown to try another restaurant and ordered our favorite marinated mixed beef innards! This place had their pieces in thick chunks that had a really good bite!|
|Cumin stir fried pork! This was so fragrant and delicious! Quite salty though as southern chinese cuisine tend to be!|
|Delicious pan fried chive and egg stuffed pancakes! I loved how piping hot these were, the exterior of the pancakes were nice and crisp and thin!|
|Assorted tiger prawns, large white sea prawns, marinated chicken wings, chicken and beef satay all ready for our BBQ!|
|Other items for our BBQ! Sweet potatos wrapped up, sausages, vegetable kebabs and whole portobello mushrooms!|
|The chicken satay, sausages and mushrooms on the pit!|
|All the yummy sea prawns and tiger prawns being flash grilled! We ended up needing to put most of them back on after underestimating how long to cook them on the pit!|
|My plate full of yummy BBQ food! Since my boyfriend and I were taking turns cooking we ate last. My plate full of a bit of everything with home made coleslaw and some veggie sticks!|
|Wraps for lunch with sliced up steak, left over meat pie filling, coriander, onion and lettuce!|
|Our delicious wraps for lunch! I topped my filling with shredded mozzarella!|
|We basically had a wrap craze throughout June and July and I'm now super good at making home made salsa!|
|Indonesian soup buntut time! I was craving this indonesia classic and my boyfriend and I got all the ingredients to make it! You'll need waxy potatos, carrots, celery, tomato, onion, garlic, ox tail and other spices! We got our recipe online!|
|Here was 1.8 kilos of beautifully fatty ox tail with loads of meat, nothing like the skinny little pieces you'd normally get in indonesia or at an indonesia joint! This is why I like making things at home!|
|Soup buntut or indonesian oxtail soup! Look at how fatty and tender that meat is? This is why my boyfriend loves his meat slow cooked in the oven!|
|A huge pot of stove cooked mussels with onions, celery and white wine! We pot this tray of mussels that fed both my boyfriend and I and it cost less than $3!|
|Fried garlic and egg rice! A favorite of mine!|
|A some what healthy lunch at home of a whole meal wrap, baked chicken, chopped salad and a bit of mayo!|
|Oven baked chicken wings that had the most crisp skin due to baking with its own fat and a nice side of cold potato salad!|
|Another yummy mince beef wrap with salsa and lettuce!|
|Brunching at home with delicious hash browns, egg scramble, salsa and lettuce!|
|My boyfriend's SO HEALTHY lunch of a ramly burger (the beef patty maybe 20% meat if we're lucky) and three super crisp hash browns!|
|Spaghetti bolognese! I love love dry meaty sauces for my pastas!|
