Gräciõ's LäveñderBliss Café: Favourites

Wednesday, July 12, 2006


Everyone has their favourite lists of food. One of my favourites on the list is leeks. Am in the leeks mood these days, tonight I'm whipping up a dish that has to do with leeks again. I'm so glad Dubai import leeks, if not, I would be demoralised. haha.. what a word to describe! =P

I love food that are steamed & stir fried. They are easily prepared within afew minutes. Quick & easy is what I'm always on a look-out for. =)

Here's our dinner yesterday.
