Sweet potato flat noodles stir-fry ~ 炒红薯扁面条

 

During  this Covid 19 pandemic, I notice that there are many shops mushrooming in my housing area selling frozen food, meat and an assortment of sauces, noddles etc.  I happened to walk in to one very near to my house and I was looking for Korean vermicelli which was not available.  Instead the salesgirl introduced me to this Sweet Potato Flat Noodles, from Fujian, China which she said was a new arrival.  To help and stimulate the economy I picked up a packet and some other groceries.  The noodles taste somewhat like our 'kway teow' but I notice that it tends to harden a bit once cooled, so best to eat it immediately.

Yam Puff ~ 'Wu Kok'

This is one of the must-have items whenever we go for have dim-sum ...... 'Wu Kok' or Yam dumplings.  Initially I had a hard time struggling with the soft and sticky dough in the hot and stuffy kitchen, but fortunately after chilling it in the fridge for 50 mins., it could be 'man-handled' quite easily!  Phew, not too bad as this is my first attempt!

Mixed Fruit Bread ~ 杂果面包

Homemade bread is always more nutritious than those bought from the supermarkets.  For one I don't add any bread improver or preservatives to my bread making.  Store bought ones may be fresh but they have loads of preservatives added to prolong their shelf life.  When I make bread I can control the ingredients that I want to put into my bread and I can customise the flavour and I find that kneading the dough can be quite therapeutic too!
