As usual lah kan bila ada orang sambut birthday kat rumah ni, we started off with the cards and hugs and kisses aje.
(He’s already got his birthday present which is a Kindle also. Now we both can read in bed side by side together gether, hahahahaha…)
He got these cards from us… with a special badge from Miss 7
and the inside…
And even though it was his birthday, he still had to do his weekend chore which is doing the dishes pagi2 tadi.
(If I could masak on my birthday, then he could basuh pinggan on his kan ).
He wore the badge the whole day today, hahahaha…
(He’s man enough to wear pink gloves )
We were supposed to go out for dinner this weekend but I couldn’t be bothered to book the restaurant. Malas giler nak pergi city on Friday or Saturday nite. We hate keluar malam2 kat city area tu.
Tu yang makan dinner kat rumah lagi sedap and selesa .
Since I promised him chicken kiev for dinner, that’s what I made tonite.
I made chicken kiev (with only basil, semi dried tomato and colby cheese as the filling). Makan dengan leek, potato and sweet potato gratin and steamed vegetables.
It was a really yummy dinner (kalah makan kat restoran, hikhikhik ).
The gratin tu I buat sempoi aje. First I sauteed finely sliced leek in olive oil until wilted. Then add the diced potato and sweet potato and sautee them some more until half cooked. Add a bit of powdered chicken stock to flavour it.
Transfer the mixture to a gratin dish ( I pakai pyrex nya dish aje) and pour white sauce onto it until covered. Tabur bread crumb and a bit of mozzarella cheese on top and bake it at 160°C until the potatoes are cooked and the top is brown.
Memang ngam soi betul the chicken kiev with the gratin and steamed veges ni.
And then for his cake, I made key lime pie but since kat sini takde key lime, I ganti dgn limau purut, hehehe. But the juice I just guna bottled lime juice aje.
It tasted a bit like cheesecake but without the use of any cream cheese.
The birthday boy liked it .
And I also made his favourite bubur pulut hitam (since he has nicley requested ).
(I told you hubby I ni half Mat Saleh, half Melayu, heeeee….)
But I tak masak the pulut dengan santan. Masa nak makan tu baru tuang cold santan.
lemak manis masin…..sedap…….. .
He said thank you for all the birthday wishes .
