Simple And Easy Home Cooked Dinners For 2

There are days when I am not lazy to cook. Whenever I cook for only 2 people, I usually cook simple dishes. Sometimes, I find eating outside much more convenient and cheaper than cooking for 2 people. But once in a while, I cook whenever I miss some home cook food. I have here two sets of dinner which I cooked.

Dinner One - Chicken Red Wine Soup With Noodle
I used half a free range chicken, slices of old ginger and some home made red yeast wine to cook this dish. My red yeast wine didn't turned out red because I used less red yeast.
We ate the chicken red wine soup with noodles.
I stir fried a plate of amaranth green with garlic.
This is simple dinner #1

Dinner 2 - Black vinegar pig's trotter with rice.
I used half a pig's trotter, old ginger, black wood fungus and black vinegar to cook this. This is only half of the amount, the other half went into the freezer for another day's dinner.
Bitter gourd slices and carrot strips fried with egg.
We ate the above 2 dishes with rice.

  2. Your simple home cooked dishes are no less tasty than what you eat outside. I enjoy simple food like this and I like to have to have a condiment of sliced chilies, soya sauce and vinegar.

    1. Thank you, Phong Hong! Sometimes, I will cut chili padi to put in soy sauce as my condiment.

  3. Hello Nancy!:) They all look so tempting, home made food done with loving care is the best. The amaranth green looks similar to our "grelos", " turnip greens" rather bitter in taste, but delicious.

  4. not simple at all because you need to make the red yeast wine for dinner 1 and cooking pork trotters takes lot of effort to clean the skin of the pork trotters. both are tasty dinners!
