Kenapa? Tak percaya? Silalah percaya.
The cooking part, not the snowing part.
Why out of the sudden? Well, a couple of friends were coming over. So I should serve something, shouldn’t I? Then I thought why not make it a small lunch party. So I started calling a bunch of carefully selected people to become
Menu of the day?
Spanish beef rice – Why Spanish? Because I took the recipe from Señorita Aida en España. Muchas gracias chica. I made some adjustments. Wanted to make a healthier version of it, so I used brown rice (untuk sistem penghadaman yang ceria) and low fat milk (supaya pinggang para tetamu ramping 17). Hasilnya? Nasi jadi gemuk-gemuk (coz brown rice absorbs lots of water and expands) dan agak tawar (coz I didn’t put any salt). Tuh laa, nak menu sihat sangat kan… derhaka pada resepi… huhuhu… Aida, don’t you dare laugh at me!
Butter rice – Menu kecemasan. After I was done making the beef rice, I realised the portion was too small to feed all of my guests! Maka dengan laju menuju ke kedai runcit beli beras biasa sebab brown rice dah habis. Fried some butter + garlic + pandan leaves and dumped in the white rice. So much for my healthy menu.
Sambal sotong walnut – Grabbed the recipe from Mat Gebu’s blog. Wanted to make sambal sotong kacang tanah, but I don’t like peanuts, so I changed them to walnuts. And I found out that the dried chilies that I bought were too hot, so I mixed them with fresh chilies. Derhaka kepada resepi sekali lagi.
Black pepper chicken with mushroom – Menu paling simple. Marinated the chicken with black pepper sauce, threw in some button mushrooms and off into the steamer. Very healthy.
Garden salad – Mix of green leaves, baby capsicums and cherry tomatoes. Loved how bright the colors turned out.
Virgin apple mojito – One of my favorite mocktails. Half portion of sparkling apple juice, half portion of soda, green apple slices, applemint leaves and lots of ice.
Orange fruit jelly – First time tengok kat blog Kak Lieya terus terpegun. Just had to give it a try.

Cooking is not that tough actually. Technology makes it a whole lot easier. Click a website. Prepare the ingredients. Follow the instructions.
Maybe after this I should try something else. Baking? Sewing? Carpenting?
Maafkan saya jika blog ini sunyi seketika. Saya mungkin sedang sibuk mencabar kredibiliti Ikea.
