On 6 August 2012, which is today, more than 100 Singapore bloggers are joining hands to #CookForFamily. The #CookForFamily is a Singapore food bloggers initiative by Daniel – "no competition, sponsors, or hidden agenda involved. It's created with a simple objective of getting more bloggers, & hopefully their fans & followers, to start cooking & bonding with their families."

In fact, I had already kicked off with an adorable lunch box: Irresistible Tobiko Chawanmushi In CasaBento Box (とびこの茶碗蒸し) sometime in July, & you can also read more about the man behind this initiative in the post.

The bloggers have picked a day in July to cook a meal for their family or loved ones, & blog, tweet & instagram about their cooking, experience & thoughts all on the same day – 6th August 2012 (Monday). Here's an economical lunch that I'd made in July for my family.

Cheap & Sumptuous Lunch with A Glass of White Wine. Total cost: under S$10 for 3 pax + S$20 for a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc! Of course, it's not an everyday thing that you can get a cheap meal like this. Just that I was lucky that day, stuff that I picked were all on offer.

Angry Birds Instant Noodles

You don't have to be a Chef to #CookForFamily. You can turned a simple instant noodle dish into a lovely one too, if you put in your heart & soul. I'm not joking, these were just instant noodles that I'd made for my family on a lazy day.

angry birds, instant noodles, mee goreng, enoki, prawns
Instead of the usual instant noodle soup, I made ours dry & added some seasonings like Oyster Sauce, Black Soya Sauce, Chilli Powder, Sesame Oil. I also threw in these ingredients: Enoki Mushrooms, Prawns, Angry Birds Fish Cakes & Vegetables to make it a balance meal. That's it!!

Don't you love these #AngryBirds Fish Cakes? Well, #AsiaFoodRecipe obviously loves it & featured on their site! These Fish Cakes are original Angry Birds products, from #Rovio! My mom bought these for us at Chinatown market, knowing I'm a big fan of the gaming cartoon.

  4. Cooking for the family is a good initiative. It really does not have to be expensive ingredients and all. What matters is the time spent together eating at the home dining table minus the TV and handphones:P
