Lega hati I The Little Misses dah start sekolah .
Lepas aje hantar diaorang pergi sekolah tadi, I had to do a few errands before shooting off to Carousel untuk berdating minum kopi sambil bergossip and window shopping dengan Anis.
Dari pukul 10 sampai pukul 1.30 lepak kat situ and balik pun sebab terfikir nak solat and nak kena ambik The Little Misses, hehehehe.
They look much happier balik dari sekolah tadi sebab dah dapat jumpa all their friends instead of balik2 tengok muka each other aje .
This semester, Miss 12 will be taking 3 different electives, drama, discovering arts and food awareness. She told us that her friends yang ambik Food awareness last semester said that it was a really fun elective.
Anything involving food definitely should be fun!
Kids nowadays are so lucky I think. Most of them are exposed to so many different types of dishes from so many different countries at such a young age which means that their tastebuds got introduced to a big range of flavours early.
Especially in OZ ni where there are so many different ethnic groups living here sekarang so banyak lah ethnic restaurants mushrooming everywhere.
Kalau tanya the Mat Saleh kids kat sini what they have for dinner malam tadi. They will be a few who will say fried rice or fried noodles or sushi or curry and rice or pizza or pasta instead of the typical ‘meat and 3 vegs’.
I pun nak lah my girls to know about other types of food kan instead of the typical malaysian dishes or typical anglo dishes.
Tapi kan, kadang2 I ni yang takut2 nak try new dishes sebab takut tak kena dengan tekak, hahahaha.
Ye lah kan, penat2 masak, pastu masuk Cik Tong, rugi aje lah kan.
So malam ni, instead of masak something that’s completely strange, I masak couscous aje. Couscous ni makanan ruji North African countries tak silap and is made out of semolina.
Jadi lah kan, lain lah jugak dari the typical nasi and kari or pizza yang I selalu sangat buat tu .
I made spiced couscous with veges and grilled marinated fish.
Couscous ni I buat a bit ikut this recipe but I added diced carrots, cherry tomatoes, sliced mushrooms and green beans to increase the veg content.
I used barramundi fillet marinated in olive oil, lemon juice, lemon zest, garlic, cumin, paprika and salt and pepper. Then grilled on the a grill pan on the stove top.
We love couscous but maybe not as makanan ruji lah, hehehe.
Kalau makan macam ni kering takpe, tak pulak tercekik. Tapi kalau makan nasi, mesti kena ada kuah sampai banjir ….
