After few days of just gardening updates, I pun dah tak larat tengok garden tu, hehehehe….
I might as well tayang gambar the foods lah pulak kan or else people might think this is a gardening blog pulakkan!
The girls and I went to a pool party at a friend’s house last Friday. Luckily the weather was excellent for them to jump into the pool and for the Mak Mak to borak2 and makan2.
It was as usual a potluck party with the hostess cooking a few things as well.
Some of the spread on that day. Ini pun ada a few people yang belum sampai lagi so memang lagi banyak kuih muih and lauk pauk terhidang once they got there. But masa tu I dah start makan so malas betul nak ambik gambar lagi, hehehe.
I buat pizza for the kids to eat and also serimuka as dessert.
Both very easy to make so tu yang I volunteered nak bawak these things .
Obviously malam tu I tak masak, cuma makan toasts aje while The Other Half makan the stuff yang I tapau kan.
Semalam, The Other Half kata dia teringin sangat nak makan nasi lemak so I pun buatkan dia nasi lemak.
I buat ikan goreng as lauk but the ikan bawal was too big to put on the plate! Heeee…
The sayur terung and okra goreng ni came fresh from the garden. Goreng dgn bawang, bilis and kicap sungguhlah sedapnya .
Then for dinner tadi, I made savoury mince with baked eggs.
I used the banana chillies, tomatoes, fresh oregano leaves, fresh basil leaves and fresh parsley from the garden.
I just diced the onion, garlic, tomatoes and banana chillies tu. Finely sliced the fresh herbs.
Sautee the onion and garlic in olive oil until wilted. Add a teaspoon each of cumin powder, coriander powder and paprika and cook for a few more minutes. Add the beef mince and cook until it has turned brown. Add the diced tomatoes, chicken stock powder, 2 tablespoons of tomato paste and let it simmer until all the tomatoes have become mushy and the liquid has reduced to half.
Put the mince mixture in an oven-proof glass dish and break as many eggs as you want on top of it. Bake it in 200°C oven until the egg white is cooked and the yolk is still runny.
Makan dengan home-made parmesan & garlic bread, bean salad and roast potatoes.
I guess when you dip a piece of bread in runny egg, everything else will taste nice too kan .
And then for dessert, we had fresh fruits.
The gorgeous Summer fruits of peaches, plums, cherries, strawberries and figs.
We love figs but they are so difficult to get and so expensive as well. Yang jenis ni we found at the Sunday market tadi for $5/kg saje! So, beria lah we all makan sampai puas tadi, hehehe.
