Topsy Turvy! (Charis updates)

It's always a treat to have breakfast during dinner. It ranks up there somewhere with ice-cream for dinner (which Sam said he has done before, like what?!) and juicy bacon for breakfast. Our delicious dinner tonight was just that, egg sandwiches with sausage and cheese. And the noble cause for this topsy turvy-ness was to simply finish all food in the fridge! We're busy packing up to move to a new place (yes! we found a place, more on that later) next week and you would think said persons would've remembered not to buy a new carton of eggs, right! But bought 'em I did and now we have to finish them all. 4 down - 6 more to go. 

Our dinner - egg and sausage sandwich 
That's what I've been doing these past few weeks. When my parents were here about 3 weeks back, we visited a seafood market down south of Bangkok (yep, another post!) and I stocked up on lots and lots of fishes. So I've cooked deep-fried fish, steamed fish, sweet and sour fish and really, I've ran out of other fishy ideas! It must be homesickness because suddenly I thought of "yue tao mai fan" - fish head meehoon, one of my favourite dishes to eat during rainy days. So, voila here it is! Not as hard as it looks really! Try it!

Fish head meehoon - the fish is totally wrong but it made a yummy dish anw!
Now is to figure out what am I going to do with the rest of the food in the fridge. What can I cook with 6 eggs, 4 sausages, Ramly burgers, frozen crisscut fries, 2 salted fishes, 2 fishes, pickled green mustard and lots of chicken breasts cuts? Kinda wished I didn't pay so much attention to Housekeeping 101 - Keep a Well-stocked Fridge.
