Cats and cooking

Nono not cooking our cats :P Just some recent photos of Ginko (grey girl) and Yoshi (tabby boy)

I was inspired to try to prepare home made version of Soto Ayam at home thanks to Moonberry :3 Will put the food shots after the cat photos :P

I suspect Ginko is the alpha kitty in the family ^^;

Ginko for some weird reason likes to sleep on top of her brother ^^;

Yoshi doesn’t seem to care… least when he was deep in slumber :P

puni puni…


Princess Ginko :)

Princess and the beanie, Ginko enjoys hanging off the edge ^^;

Wonder if I was just a bit home sick when I felt inspired by moonberry’s post about making Soto ayam, a little while back, it was Laksa lol!  I wasn’t gonna make it from scratch tho! Found this packaged paste during our last grocery shopping :D Product of Singapore even ^^;

Food pix ahead!



So part of the morning was spent preparing these:

Made 2 servings :) the soup is enough for around 4-5 servings tho, will keep the rest in the fridge after it cools down.

1) tofu puffs cut diagonally
2) chicken breast, pulled into strips after cooking in Soto paste and 1000ml of water
3) hard boiled eggs
4) cucumber strips (I’m not a fan of picking bean sprouts lol)
5) coriander (or otherwise known as Chinese parsley)
6) pan fried shallots – into golden brown, be careful not to burn it ^^;

The above is  set aside, and the noodles was cooked and strained just before serving, and the soup re-heated :3

Arranged the dry stuff in 2 bowls…

Pour the steaming hot soup over… and itadakimasu!

Husband liked it ^o^ So this is a keeper :P will reduce the noodles for next attempt ^^; The shallots smells very fragrant, reminds me of my mom’s cooking ^^;

    A bit too much vegetables for my kind of Soto Ayam XD But I guess we have different styles in Singapore and Indonesia. We use bean sprouts and no cucumber.

    Cats doing 69?

    heehe yes :P I need more pan fried shallots lol I’m generally not a fan of those, but I guess after a few years of being deprived of my mom’s cooking, something which reminds me of it will do for now ^^; This Soto Betawi sounds yummy :D I’m not sure if we have that in Singapore tho XD
