Le Pinay in Dubai… :)

Welcome to my world! My happiness.. my favorite things… my travels… my journey… My life. :) I’m a rookie housewife in Dubai- trying to be a domestic goddess! “JOIE DE VIVRE” – (FRENCH for joie, “joy”; de, “of”; vivre, “living”; “THE JOY OF LIVING”) is a term sometimes imported into English to express a cheerful enjoyment of life; an exultation of spirit. Joie de vivre, as one scholar has written, can be a: JOY OF CONVERSATION, JOY OF EATING, JOY OF ANYTHING ONE MIGHT DO…

This fish dish was a yummy surprise! A couple of days ago, I was too lazy to cook lunch coz I was hooked on my Harry Potter book… but I felt so hungry already that I just had to eat something. Too hungry to cook from scratch, I just dug in our refrigerator for leftover food. I found leftover spaghetti sauce (with no more meatballs) and frozen hammour fish fillet. 

I cooked the fish and tomatoey spaghetti sauce together, and it tasted soooo good! I just had to take a picture of this last piece. 😉


My Tomatoey Spaghetti Sauce


fresh white mushrooms

1 bottle bolognese spaghetti sauce

1 can chopped tomatoes

grated cheese

dried basil

white pepper

beef cube dissolved in a small amount of water  (learned this from Rachel Ray!)

beef meatballs (but since I used leftover sauce for the fish, there were no more meatballs hehe)


Saute garlic, add mushrooms, then spaghetti sauce and chopped tomatoes. Add the beef broth and stir. Add grated cheese, salt and pepper and basil according to taste. I prefer to use larger chunks of grated cheese so it won’t melt completely. Simmer until cooked.



White Fillet Fish, preferably Hammour or Cream Dory


Saute garlic in oil or butter. Cook fish for 1-2 minutes. Flip the fish.  Add the spaghetti sauce and simmer until cooked completely.


Bon Appetit! 🙂
