Salted Vegetable Soup with Animals Pasta

 I was craving for 'ham choy tong' (salted vegetable soup) last weekend so I went to market on Saturday and bought some salted vegetable, toufu, tomatoes and roasted meat.  This is my favourite soup ever since I was young.  I remembered my grandmother used to cook this dish just for me every time I visited her at her house in Teluk Intan.


All she had to do was boiled this soup and cooked a pot of rice.  I normally will mixed the rice with soup and eat it for 3 meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner!!).

For the two little ones at home, I made some animals pasta and added the soup in it.  I  fried some sausages and chicken ham for them.  I love weekends when I'm not working.  I love going to the market and buying fresh vegetables to cook some simple dishes for the kids.  Although sometimes it can be quite tiring when you had to work 5 days per week, sometimes you just don't feel like doing anything else during the weekend except to rest and rest! 

I also made some bunny faces out of the chicken ham and cut the sausages with my sausage wiener cutter.  One of it was a crab shape and the tall sausage was supposed to be a penguin but I think the shape didn't really 'show up' after I fried them :P.

I love cooking these pasta for my kids as my lil prince will look and see what animals he was eating in each scoop.  It has always been a headache for me to have a picky eater at home.  I always need to think of creative ways to make my kid eat.  Whenever, I cooked this pasta for  him, he will gladly finished his meal without any nagging from me!
