《Fong's 三菜一汤》3-plus-1





Our local TV variety show 《三菜一汤》3-plus-1, is a very popular show among homemakers here.  It is a weekly cooking show, where celebrities will cook three dishes plus a soup, all within an hour's time and the cost of the food must be within the budget of S$20.  Besides being a very entertaining program, many homemakers watch this show to get ideas of what to cook for the week.

This gives me an idea to set up this page to record a list of my very own 《三菜一汤》menu.  These are the actual 3-plus-1 menus that I cooked (usually over weekends), when my family members gathered at my house for dinner.  I will try to go for variety and work out a balanced-diet in my menu planning.  As a typical Cantonese household, the meal is not complete without a soup.
