Planned menu for the guest

Haritu before the guest datang, The Other Half and I dah buat ‘brainstorming’ untuk menu dinner sepanjang 5 malam dia kat rumah ni.

(menu dinner pun nak kena brainstorming bagai, muahahaha.)

Kenalah brainstorming kan sebab kalau tiba2 I masak nasi lemak dengan sambal sotong kering dan kangkung goreng, ada pulak nanti terbeliak biji mata dia nak makan. (Actually kalau I buat sambal sotong kering, bukan guest tu aje yang akan terbeliak biji mata, The Other Half pun akan terbeliak sama sebab sepanjang2 kahwin tak pernah2 bini dia ni masak sotong kering, hahahaha.)

So, the menu we chose were very tame and mild.

First night- pizza (I dah tayang gambar)

Second night- rice and butter chicken and other side dishes (pun I dah tayang gambar). Butter chicken ni tak pedas langsung so memang kira very mild lah kalau bandingkan dengan the fiery vindaloo or rogan josh tu.

Third night (malam semalam)- chicken schnitzel parmigiana with sauteed asparagus and carrots and oven-baked chips.

It’s basically crumbed chicken thigh fillet that I pan fried. Pastu top it with pasta sauce and grated cheese. Then put it under the grill until the cheese has melted.

Fourth night (tonight)- Creamy tuna pesto pasta bake.

Fifth and final night (malam esok) – the menu planned was maki sushi but then I baru aje found out yang the guest tak makan sushi so kenalah buat brainstorming again, hikhikhik….

Lepas belek2 my old blog entries, we decided to do nachos sahaja since the guest kata dia makan nachos.

(I senyum panjang sebab nachos sangat senang nak buat banding dengan sushi, heeee….)

The guest told her husband (yang tak ikut sama) that tiap2 malam dia makan kat ‘gourmet restaurant’ and memang macam pergi holiday aje, hahahaha.

I tak kisah masak apa2 pun kalau awal2 dah planned menu. Tak lah serabut otak I nak fikir nak masak apa at 5 o’clock when dinner is at 6 Smile.

And in a way, I’m lucky sebab the guest bukan jenis yang kena makan nasi hari2 with 3-4 jenis lauk pauk. Pengsan I kalau dia macam tu! hehehhehe.

P/S Utk Nani yang nak recipe pakoras tu, I guna recipe from this lady tapi I guna rempah serbuk aje and tak guna daun ketumbar and I kurangkan the amount of chili.

Gee Carmen said...

bainyeee tuan rumah :)
sediakan makanan yang sihat utk tetamu.

Mommy Lily said...

Memang betul tu kalau nak masak untuk tetamu sebaiknya tanya dulu apa dia makan dan apa dia tak makan kan supaya dia tak de la terpaksa buat2 makan sambil muka kerut2 nanti nak jaga hati kita hehe

Pendragon,
nasib baik kat Perth ni senang gak nak dpt halal gourmet food so senang lah 'restoran' I nak beroperasi bila you dtg, hehehe.
The guest to from Adelaide, kawan hubby.

Shiera,
Kalau Mak Pak I yg dtg, menu dia lain lah sikit, hehehe

Arena,
I pun tak sure I pernah letak recipe ni or not but I pernah letak recipe mcm mana nak buat schnitzel. I slalunya cuma tuang bottled pasta sos atas cooked schnitzel tu, then tabur grated cheese atas dia and grill sampai all the cheese melted.

Mulan,
kalau 10d9n, pengsan I and dgn kitchen2 sekali mogok sbb kena masak gourmet food hari2, hahaha

Kak Azie,
kena mesorat, kalau tak, nanti ada pulak yg terkecik hati sbb dihidangkan benda yg dia tak boleh makan or I yg kecik hati sbb masakan I tak dimakan, hehehe

Mamasuri,
untuk guest aje masak special2 ni :-)

Rozita,
Halal gourmet restaurant I ni kena bagitau warning awal2 seminggu dua macam tu, baru boleh ada gourmet food, hahaha

Nalisa,
kalau buat rombongan cik kiah, mau pengsan I sekejap sbb nak masak gourmet food utk 1 kapal, hikhikhik

Farah,
Amin..I doakan you kahwin tahun depan so dpt you dtg honeymoon ke Perth :-)

Rai,
bila I rajin aje, baru mengalahkan restoran, kalau malas, sendiri ingat lah, hehehe

Geesham,
Shidah tu is my brother's friend and we all kenal thru blog and thru my brother :-). Dia memang rajin giler masak and upload recipes. I ni hari2 masak tapi malas giler nak upload recipes, hehehe

Gee,
tetamu kenalah diraikan kan, hehehe

Mommy Lily,
memang betul tu. Tapi Mat Saleh ni, kalau diaorang tak suka, memang diaorang tak makan so kita lah nanti yang akan rasa kecik hati sbb food kita dia tak jamah kan.
