Juicy Duck Breast with Homemade Yellow Noodles


I was ecstatic when i saw fresh duck breast in the grocery store yesterday! It has been so hard looking for it and I was not keen in buying a whole duck for just the 2 of us. Moreover, the brest is the most yummy part of the duck in my opinion! I was eager to try cooking the duck for the first time and i am extremely pleased with it! It it moist, juicy and very flavourful! I would prefer it more pink but i was afraid that Ben would be reluctant to try. Nevertheless, it was still very juicy and moist! I am extremely happy that i can cook our own fresh duck breast, it has got to be one of my favourite proteins!

I also got some alkaline water yesterday and i made my own yellow noodle for the first time. Yellow noodles has got to be one of the most popular noodles with Singaporeans. However, like i mentioned before, the strong smell and oiliness really puts me off. The noodles i made turned out bouncy, QQ, with a perfect texture and smells clean and fresh and definitely not oily at all. This has opened up so many opportunities for me as i can use the same noodles for mee goreng, mee rebus, hokkien mee, bak chor mee, and the list goes on! πŸ™‚
