Need more inspiration

I think my dad misses me. I rang him up today at his office, and the first thing he said to me was, "Where are you? Are you in KK?". Perhaps a faint hope that I had sprung another surprise visit home.

I tried making lemon-kai yesterday for dinner. Sadly, it didn't turn out as well as I'd hoped. I burnt the batter when trying to fry the chicken pieces. Thankfully the sauce turned out okay... perhaps a bit too sweet. I Googled the recipe online and tried to find that resembled the most to the way mom used to make it. Thankfully also, MH thought it was not bad and appreciated the effort.

I need more inspiration. The old familiar recipes that mom used to make are starting to fade slightly. I need to remember how to put together a good solid but simple curry, asian stews, soups and one-dish meals. I need more ideas on what to do with my chicken, beef and pork!

P.S. My bean sprout salad turned out okay. I blanched the sprouts in boiling water and tossed them together with some fresh mint leaves, drizzled with a dash of lime juice, olive oil and salt.
