Cook my weekend lunch with whatever I will find in my fridge and pantry.
I found pasta, mince pork meat, tomatoes, mushroom in can and green onions.
Ok, let cook pasta with tomato sauce. (I like to make mine Chinese style.)
My taste still quite a typical Malaysian Chinese. Although I've live here many many years, yet I have not change much when come to food.
Nowaday, buying Asian groceries or fresh food is very convenient, quite a lot of Asian groceries store available here. The best is Most Canadian Grocery Store have a section for imported food. One big Asian Grocery store will soon open near my house.
When I can't find some ingredient for my Malaysian Recipe, I will subsitute with other ingredient to modify the food a bit. It taste ok to my expectation. (I make my own Sambal, no chilli bo for sale here, I just use Vietnamese chilli sauce.) I have no complain compare with other Malaysian who live in smaller town where they are limited of Asian grocery stores.
(But I still miss all food in Malaysia, sometime my family or friend will bring me some exclusive food from Malaysia. )
