Miss 5 was sick today so I pun kenalah duduk rumah jaga dia. Probably we have to stay at home every day this week kot sampai lah her cough and cold betul2 baik. The problem with Miss 5 ni, kalau dia batuk2 teruk sangat, she’ll throw up after that so tu yang dia ‘malas’ sikit nak pergi sekolah bila she’s got a bad cough, kalau dia termuntah kat sekolah tu, sape lah yang nak tolong dia nanti. And kesian pulak kat the other kids at school tu kalau kena her virus. And bila dia tak sekolah, Mummy mithali lah yang kena stay at home with her kan :-).
And since I kat rumah, ter rajin pulak nak buat extra special winter dinner. I made slow cooked lamb with cheddar and rosemary dumplings. But instead of using the slow cooker, I cooked the lamb pieces in the oven on low heat for 4 hours ( lama giler weh sampai memang betul2 daging tu just falls off the bone!) . I looovveee this type of cooking sebab after the intial prep, I can just leave it cooking in the oven and then go and play, hehehe. Senang kan :-). But the dumplings tu I added them at the end and baked them on top of the lamb for 25 minutes. Ini dumplings Mat Saleh bukan chinese dumplings tu tau. The Mat Saleh version ni lebih kurang scones lah but I don’t knwo why they call it dumplings.
Masa baru keluar oven, the dumplings on top and the succulent lamb underneath :-). I used the recipe from here. Tapi I didn’t make the wasabi mash, I don’t think The Little Misses would appreciate it kalau I bagi diaorang makan wasabi, hahahaha…..
Makan dengan steamed carrots and oven baked fries. The dumplings tu were used to ‘mop’ up the gravy from the dish. Miss 5 yang demam2 tu pun makan habis her lamb, lagilah The Other Half. He ate 4 pcs of the dumplings! Sedap lah tu kan agaknya, hehehehe…..
