Kan pepatah Mat Saleh kata ‘don’t judge a book by its cover’…
Obviously I wasn’t in the classroom when my English teacher taught that proverb…
Sebab I (we actually) bought a book today because of its cover!
You rasa kan, ini Mum dia yang teruja nak beli or anak2 dia yang teruja nak beli? Heeheehee…..
(Teringat kenangan silam……. bermain with the paper dolls . Kat sini ada jual the paper dolls with their baju and what nots but they come in books like the one above.)
And kalau you baca that ‘smallish’ green print on the cover, it says ‘ fold it and it’s ready to go.’
Banyak lah auta itu ayat!
Because it didn’t say that not only do you have to fold all those bits….
You also have to slot them into tiny holes while making sure the other bits stay tucked in and folded and held together while you are trying to jam this big pieces into this small holes and trying not to tear it and swear at the same time!
What/ who do they think we are?
After bertungkus lumus for an hour…. we were halfway there .
Miss 7 lah yang happy sangat2 because she wanted this doll house.
But baru aje tukang rumah siapkan separuh and the interior decorators belum habis buat all the fittings and furniture, dia dah kena masuk tidur, hahahaha.
Luckily esok only half day of schooling aje for her so bolehlah dia main puas sikit .
Sebelum I jadi tukang buat rumah tadi, I made pasta bake with meatballs for dinner tadi.
I buat the meatballs a bit big this time so bila I baked them in the oven, they dont get too dry. I guna this recipe for the meatballs but I added about 1 tablespoon of tomato sauce and 1 teaspoon of kicap cair to the mixture.
Then shape the mixture into balls and bake them in the oven at 160°C for about 20 minutes. Tak masak sangat pun tak apa because you are going to bake it some more when you bake the pasta.
Then I just used a bottled pasta bake sauce and bung it in the oven.
Makan dengan green salad memang boleh bertambah, hehehe….
