You know how sometimes you have this urge to eat chocolate cake and you would spend the whole morning looking and searching for a chocolate cake recipe. In my case, pagi tadi I betul2 terasa nak makan chocolate cake. Maybe sebab I’m under a bit of stress at the moment and so obviously my body craves for something chocolatey and sweet. But punyalah banyak recipe chocolate cakes dalam simpanan, I still surfed the net nak cari recipe yang simple and tak banyak bahan, biasalah kan, nak makan tapi malas nak lama2 kat dapur :-). And surfing the net tu memang dah jadi satu kewajipan kan so tak jadi hal lah…
And then bukan setakat nak makan choc cake kosong aje, siap nak hias2 bagai, macam lah takde kerja lain I hari ni, hehehe. Sekali sekala layan ‘urge’ mentel so apalah salahnya kan ;-). Dah lah I had to stay at home hari ni looking after 2 sick kids so tu yang banyak ‘masa’ nak membaking. Bila The Other Half came home today and saw the chocolate cake, he said, “you don’t expect me to bake a cake tomorrow since I’ll be staying at home, do you? You know I’ll still have plenty of work to do even though I’m at home?” Ceh, I don’t even expect him to masak dinner esok, let alone bake a cake! Esok turn dia to look after the sick kiddies while I go to work but I doubt it very much though that he would have dinner ready by the time I get home, hehehe. I would be lucky if he remembers to feed The Little Misses their lunches esok :-), hahahahaha….. Selalunya, if he stays at home with The Little Misses, he would raid the fridge for any leftovers to give them. Kalau tak jumpa any leftovers, he would then make them toasts for lunch. Jangan harap lah dia nak masak anything for lunch ni! So, tu yang selalunya I will tell him what’s in the fridge to give to The Little Misses. Tapi The Little Misses tu pun bukannya kisah kalau dapat toasts aje for lunch, lagi diaorang suka kadang2, hmmmm…..
Lerr, jauh pulaknya melencong from the chocolate cake :-). Anyway, so I baked a chocolate cake today and decorated it with choc ganache and maltesers and rocher. But then bila I makan tadi after dinner, it didn’t really satisfy my craving, tak best betul lah. It’s not that the cake wasn’t nice, it was really chocolatey and moist but maybe my tastebuds were expecting something else kot? Entah2 I tersilap craving kot, my hati mengidam benda lain, my tastebuds mengidam benda lain, wakakakaka…..
The Other Half said that this is a ‘everyone is sick’ lift-me-up cake, hehehe. Menarik and menggiurkan rupa kek ni, betul tak, tapi my tastebuds buat pe’el pulaknya. Agaknya tastebuds ni nak makan kuih melayu kot, hehehehe…
And ini pulak rupa our dinner. I buat potato wedges makan dengan sour cream and sweet chili sauce, guacamole and chicken nuggets. I terlupa nak buat salad and then The Other Half menyampuk, “the guacamole is green already, that’s the colour of vegetable so obviously it’s vegetable lah!”
And ini pulak rupa budak sakit yang dah 10% better. She’s still coughing but dah lalu sikit nak makan and dah boleh keeps her food down so Alhamdulillah lah. Tak lah dia mengadu asik sakit perut aje :-).
Serabai habis! Dah 2 hari Mummy tak brush her hair sebab it’s not that important in the scale of things to do bila tengah sakit ni. Pastu comot with tengah hari tadi nya milo. The Other Half kata muka Miss 5 dah cengkung sikit. Can you imagine betapa chubby nya dia bila tak demam, hehehe..
