Hari ni pergi shopping lagi but this time with my 'bag carrier' aka the other half and the Little Misses in tow. But, bila dah ada 'bag carrier' ikut sama, takde mood pulaknya nak beli macam2 :-). Apalah kan, hehehe. Cuma beli some nice bottles for the other half to put his home-made lemon cordial and some more ceramic bakers. The rest of the time cuma window shopping aje which was still very fun.
Balik from the shops, the other half straight away went into the kitchen with a mission. He's been wanting to make home-made lemon cordial for a few weeks already but he wanted to get the right bottle to put his cordial before he can start. So, tadi dah terjumpa the 'right' bottle baru lah dia dengan senang hati masuk dapur. Lemons kat pokok tepi rumah ni pun dah kuning2 semuanya so might as well use them for something kan. Since he didn't seem to need my help, I pun malas lah nak offer to help him, memang dasar bukan isteri mithali betul, hahahaha. Lagi best lepak depan pc gi meronda2 'rumah2' orang. I had no idea what he did but tak sampai 30 minutes dah siap 2 botol lemon cordial which didn't taste too bad :-). I might keep him then since he can make lemon cordial, hehehehe.....
Ini lah botol cordial yang di cari2 the other half, tadi baru terjumpa at the shop. I rasa letak kat botol mana2, sama aje kan rasanya :-).
Then after his turn in the kitchen, my turn pulak to cook dinner which was spaghetti marinara. Ingat nak suruh the other half continue his 'sojourn' in the kitchen by cooking dinner sekali but didn't really want his body to go into shock sebab tetiba kena spend so long in the kitchen kan. Takpe lah, let him get used to the kitchen a little bit at a time, hehehehe..... ;-). Mana tau, tahun baru nanti he would want to spend more time in the kitchen, which I doubt very much will happen! If Daddy starts cooking our dinners, I think miss 5 will definitely go on strike, hahaha....
Anyway, malam ni nak tayang the ceramic wares that I bought. I like ceramic wares sebab nampak cantik aje bila nak menghidang from oven straight on to the table but part berat tu yang tak larat nya kadang2. The square ceramic baker tu is 27 cm, besar lah jugak kan so nanti senang lah kalau nak buat lasagna ke, pasta bake ke, puding roti ke :-). I used to only have the round and small rectangle pyrex glass ware utk bake my pasta and nak buat puding roti. Tu yg bila nampak the square thing on sale, terus sambar satu. The 2 oval ceramic wares sebelah nya tu nampak cute sangat2 tadi on the display table at the shop and since I didn't have any yet, terus lah ambil 2 sekali. They are quite small, cuma boleh isi 1.1 litre aje, tu yang ambil 2 terus. Actually ada banyak saiz lagi semalam that was available but since my tangan semalam dah nak patah mengangkut barang, tu yang tak beli. Tadi pulak, all the big ones dah habis stock, so beli yang kecik aje lah, dapat lah jugak some things, hehehe.... Mana I nak simpan all these things, I still haven't decided yet. I might have to reorganise my cupboards esok so I can fit in all my baking wares!
Cantik kan, I like the black colour.
This was our dinner, spaghetti marinara. The other half loves anything marinara/ seafood, pizza lah, laksa lah, pasta lah.
The new loaf tin I bought today which is a bit deeper than my other loaf tins. But I think I might have put in too much dough in the tin sebab sekali dah masuk oven, punyalah tinggi dia naik, macam alien aje, gelak guling2 I depan oven tadi tengok my bread, hehehehe. Next time, I know to use the measurement for 750g bread aje not the 1kg! :-).
p/s terlupa pulak nak ucap Selamat Tahun Baru Hijrah yang ke 1430. Semoga di tahun baru ni, semakin bertambah amalan kita dan semoga segala amalan kita diterima Allah hendaknya.
