Hubby is away team building in some luxurious hotel in Torino. Followed by some VIP dinner on Saturday evening that I couldn't attend because of the kids. But then I get to sleep with Baby Boy (love of my life) and eat all the smelly things that I enjoy and which dear Hubby doesn't.
The Fried Vermicelli
Basically just soak and soften rice vermicelli then drain and set aside. Heat up wok with some oil, brown some sliced onions and a bit of diced garlic, some dried shrimps (if you have them), the chilli paste (sugar, salt, dried chillis, shallots and shrimp paste mixed or pounded into a paste), the vermicelli, light soy sauce and tomato purée and stir fry till the bee hoon's cooked. Then add in some bean sprouts and a bit of water and mix well. Set aside.
Before the gravy
Steak and Raviolis
Unfortunately the kids were not too hot about Mee Siam and I had to cook them a separate meal : Porcini Mushroom Raviolis with Pepper Steak and Peppercorn Sauce. They didn't know what they were missing. Myself, see any more Italian pasta and I'll probably vomit.
