So far, The Little Misses haven’t missed a day of fasting.
Even though last Wednesday after school, Miss 7 walked up to me and said, “I have a very strong urge to drink. My mouth is so dry.” .
Every Wednesday, she has 2 hours of sports at school which is 1 hour of Phys. Ed. and 1 hour of Sports Carnival practice. I told her not to exert herself too much masa Sports practice tu so tak lah dia rasa haus sangat.
But Rabu lepas, she said that they were practicing sprinting and racing and it looked like so much fun so she joined in. Of course lah bila lari pecut2 kat padang on a sunny day you akan rasa haus kan!
But it was already 3 o’clock at that time and iftar pulak at 5.46 so I pun pujuk dia to wait. Balik rumah tu I asked her to mandi so she cools down a bit and suruh dia lepak depan tv until buka puasa. But every half an hour asik tanya I aje berapa lama lagi nak buka sebab her mouth dah memang takde saliva langsung nak telan, hehehehe…..
Bila azan berkumandang aje, dia terus teguk air sampai 2 gelas, memang haus gilers lah tu, hahaha.
Semalam, I was really stumped on what to cook for dinner. Baru aje puasa 11 hari tapi dah tak tau nak masak apa for dinner.
At 1.30 baru lah I terfikir nak masak ‘sate’ ayam. So, kelam kabut I defrosted the chicken breast and sempatlah marinate ayam tu for a few hours.
And then I terfikir nak buat kuah kacang with a twist .
Since Miss 7 tak boleh makan peanuts, I pun kenalah buat kacang using other nuts. I found mixed nuts in the pantry. Ada cashew, almond, macadamia, brazil and walnuts in the mix. I just blitz them all in the food processor.
The Other Half kata, “I think this is the most expensive kuah kacang in the world!”
Mau nya tak expensive, siap guna macadamia lagi tu! Hahahahaha…..
But my kuah kacang looks so pathetic sebab:
1. I made it tak pedas langsung so The Little Misses can eat it so obviously colour dia tak merah cantik.
2. I buat kurang minyak so takdelah this layer of shining minyak on top.
3. I terlupa sekejap when it was on the stove top so ter burnt a bit, tu yang kaler dia tetiba tukar jadi greyish brown. hehehe..
4. I haven’t made kuah kacang for so long that I’ve forgotten how to make thus rasa dia amatlah tak macam kuah kacang.
Meh, close up sikit of the pathetic looking kuah kacang…
The Other Half kata, nasib baik ada sambal dalam jar so it really helps in making it more edible.
But Miss 7 loves it! .
