Cooking at home for two and cooking for a visiting family is very different. It is more so when the family you´re cooking for is someone you´ve not met for last 6 years! I was on my toe all day till their arrival around early dinner hour. Dinner preparation started around lunch particularly the curry since I made them all the way from scratch without spice paste usage whatsover. With some fresh chillies, dried chillies and some potent belacan at hand, I think I suceeded in choking hubby close to half death during the spice sauteeing period. The Nyonya Chicken Curry turned out well, thankfully although I am not sure if the level of spiciness or the stink from the belacan impressed my guest at all. As a back-up and also, for the kids (all 3 of them), a large batch of seasonal vegetables were prepared. We had them with white rice and a few bottles of nice red wine.
