As usual our Sundays selalunya are spent doing all the chores we don’t like doing but need to be done (cuci toilets, basuh bathrooms, vaccuuming and dusting and yada yada yada…). At the same time, Sundays are the days where we normally have cooked breakfast instead of the usual toast and cereals aje (ini pun depends on Mummy’s mood, rajin atau tak :-)). But pagi tadi since I wanted to start the chores early, I made the pancake batter and asked The Little Misses to cook the pancakes so I could cuci toilet n bathroom.
Typical kids, masa kecik2 ni bila suruh masak or main masak2, happy happy joy joy and tak merungut langsung. Cubalah nanti when they’ve reached their teens, mau nya banyak songel bila I suruh masak for the family and sure nya banyak excuses they’ll give :-). So sementara I still could kerah tenaga diaorang i.e child labour to follow my orders, I might as well use it to my advantage, betul tak!
The pancakes they made :-).
And ini resipi pancake yang I selalu guna:
- 1 1/2 cwn tepung naik sendiri (SRF)
- 1 sudu teh (tsp) baking powder
- 3 sudu besar gula caster (tbsp)
- secubit garam
- 60g butter , cairkan
- 1 cwn susu segar
- 2 biji telur saiz XL (59g)
- - Dalam mangkuk kecil, cairkan butter. Add susu segar and telur ke melted butter and mix them well.
- -Dalam mangkuk yang lain, ayak tepung naik sendiri + baking powder. Add gula caster and garam and mix it. Then buat lubang di tengah2 and add the melted butter,susu n telur mixture and menggunakan whisk biasa, just whisk it until smooth.
- -Tinggal kan adunan sekejap lebih kurang 20 minutes.
- -Gunakan non stick pan and api sederhana, masak pancake seperti biasa.
After breakfast, we finished off all the household chores. Then baru aje I nak lepak2 depan PC, The Other Half ‘asked’ if he could rearrange The Little Misses’ bedroom, siap bagi reasons why it’s necessary for him to do it, hehehe. I pun sebab baik hati (since he was so nice in helping me do all the chores pagi tadi) said to him, “do whatever you want to do as long as I don’t have to help :-).” Punyalah baik kan wife dia ni, hehehe…
So, The 3 muskateers did all the rearranging and the cleaning up that comes along with moving things around while I cuma lepak2 aje…
Masa ni the busy stage of rearranging..
They used to sleep on bunk beds but Miss 10 asik komplen aje sebab Miss 6 selalu tendang2 her bed at night time and dia malas nak panjat her bed tiap2 malam. So, The Other Half rearranged the beds and put them side by side now. The Little Misses wanted their own rooms actually tapi tak cukup bedrooms kat rumah ni for them to have that. Ada 4 bedrooms kat rumah ni but 1 room dah ada queen size bed for guests and 1 room lagi I guna untuk my sewing stuff, ironing room and store room so memang lah tak cukup bedroom untuk The Little Misses to get 1 each kan. Maybe 1 day when we can reduce the amount of ‘junk’ in the house, baru boleh we give them their own rooms.
Cleaning up their mess under the beds.
Finally, beds are made, things rearranged, carpet vacuumed and they are tired!!
