Eefu noodles

My mother-in-law gave me some Ee fu noodles, so I have been experimenting with this dish. The first time we had it with some roast goose which a relative brought back from Hong Kong. It definitely goes very well with the roast goose. However, I think I didn’t add enough sauces when cooking the noodles, hence the colour looked a bit off. Nonetheless, the taste wasn’t too bad.

The second time, the noodles was more successful. This time, I only had some chicken wings at home, so I marinated and baked them to go with the noodles. I must say that they go so much better with the goose. It probably goes quite well with duck too. Actually, I can’t quite tell the difference between the 2. It was my first time having goose and it tasted similar duck to to me.

Here’s how I cooked the noodles – instructions from my mother-in-law. Don’t know the specific amount of sauce to add! Just trial and error and try to balance them!!

Simple Lasagna dinner at home

Decided to attempt Lasagna again because I love eating lasagna! So far have not had much success the few times we tried.

This time round it was successful! This is also quite easy to assemble. These days, since baby Ezra came, when I do cook, usually try to do one dish meals as the prep and washing is much less. 

 
Ingredients (Serves 3):

1) San Remo instant lasagna sheets

2) Prego Tomato Pasta Sauce (300g)

3) Minced beef (300g)

4) 1 onion

5) 2-3 cloves of garlic

6) Butter

7) Milk (2 cups)

8) Mozzarella cheese (200g)

9) Plain flour (2 tablespoon)

10) Olive oil 

 
Directions:

1) To make the meat sauce: Heat up some oil and fry the onions and garlic. Add the mince beef and stir till cooked. Then add in the tomato pasta sauce and simmer for 5 minutes.

2) To make the cheese sauce (I got this recipe from the box of lasagna sheets) Melt the butter and stir in the flour. Stir for a few minutes. Stir in the milk till thick and smooth. Add in 100g of the mozzarella chesse and stir till the cheese melts.

3) Assemble: Layering – lasagna sheet – meat sauce- cheese sauce – sprinkle mozzarella cheese. Create a few layers.
