Fighting off heatiness

It’s so ridiculously hot this week. Darling’s fighting a losing battle with the on and off throat irritation. Ethan has got rashes all over his back. Starting from the lower back, now spreading fast to the upper back and the back of his neck. Tried applying calamine and rash creams but nothing work. When everything fails, I try the alternative way.

Was in 1 Utama yesterday. The perks of being a housewife is being able to shop on weekdays! Went to my favourite herbs store to enquire on Darling and Ethan’s condition. I was told to bathe Ethan in honeysuckle flower water. Bought a packet of it for RM6.20. I can also boil it and let them drink it if I want to. So far, I’ve just let Ethan bathe in it.

They also recommended me to boil this for Darling and Ethan. This I know as I’ve boiled it a few times before.

As we are all feeling the heat, I try not to fry when cooking today. So instead of frying the eggplant that I bought in Jusco yesterday, I steam it. I steam it with some pumpkin, Chinese wolfberries and dried mushroom. Added a dash of salt and half teaspoon of oyster sauce. (I sprinkled some fried anchovies and garlic just before serving for an extra boost of fragrant). Surprisingly, Darling and Ethan prefers it this way. So now I know, when it comes to eggplant, I’ll steam it for them in the future! ^^
