Tonite we had a very late dinner (according to our standard lah) sebab the dinner was at 7!
Why the late dinner?
Sebab The Other Half bercita2 besar nak masak the whole dinner from the potatoes to the corns to the bread and to the chicken in the BBQ!
I guess he should be applauded sebab he managed to cook the chicken and the bread in the BBQ, hikhikhik…. While I cooked the corns and the potatoes on my humble dapur aje .
He started making the bread at 1.15 (with the help of the bread maker) but he chose the ‘wrong’ kind of bread that required double kneading time which means by the time dah habis dua kali dough cycle in the breadmaker, dah 4.30. Pastu nak shape the bread and let it rise again, dah ambik masa lagi. Dah lah the weather mendung aje petang tadi, hehehe.
Pastu, tiba2 he said to me at 6.15 yang the bread will take another 40 minutes to cook in the BBQ. I was like, “what! what time are we going to eat anyway?”
Luckily masa tu, the chicken was already cooked. We started the cooking the chicken in the BBQ before 5 and it took a while jugak to masak I guess. So I said to him that I’ll cook the potatoes and the corns atas dapur aje lah sebab kalau nak tunggu the bread habis masak dalam BBQ, baru bakar the corns and potatoes, adalah yang nanti tergolek2 atas carpet menangis hiba kelaparan macam tak makan sebulan! .
But, it was well worth the wait sebab the ciabatta loaf that he made was superb!
Except that he managed to burn the bottom bit of the bread and managed to wreck my tray as well!
Takpelah, sekali sekala dia nak masak, I tutup mata aje lah (lagi lah bila dia kata dia akan belikan I tray yang baru which kalau di‘translate’ kan means I yang kena pergi kedai beli sendiri tray yang baru .)
So, layanlah gambar our dinner in the making…
The whole chicken cut in half so cepat sikit masak.
Lepas diterbalikkan. Nampak so juicy and sedap kan .
Nasib baik I masak the potatoes awal2 you, hehehe.
On the dining table. The chickens, the corns, the potatoes, the coleslaw and the ciabatta.
The bread that took a long time to make. Maybe tu kot yg buatkan dia lagi sedap kan. The texture is soft but slightly chewy on the inside but so crispy on the outside with a slightly sourish taste.
My plate minus the sweet chilli sauce.
Kalau masak kenduri with nasi dua tiga jenis, lauk 5 macam, patutlah jugak kan berejam2 masak baru boleh makan, hikhikhik….
