Esok dah nak masuk bulan November…
Summer is nearly here and judging from the weather today, we might be experiencing one long hot Summer this year…
Last Summer was quite bad as well, it started early and didn’t end until nearly June….
The Other Half and I joined Miss 8’s school for a walking day this afternoon. The whole school went for a 40-minute walk from 2 o’clock tadi. Ramai jugak parents and families yang joined that walking event.
The walk was fine and quite fun, it wasn’t searingly hot, only around 29°C kot but windy at the same time. We did get sunburnt a bit though tadi.
But what was extremely annoying was the flies, they were everywhere!
I told Miss 8 to keep her mouth shut most of the time or else the flies might get into her mouth, urggghhhhhh!
(actually it was a good suggestion because it stopped her from talking non stop for 45 minutes, hahahahaha).
Balik aje from the school, I quickly made silverbeet, chicken and ricotta cannelloni for dinner.
The ricotta filling mixture I made pagi tadi before going for that walk sebab malas nak rushing nak prepare dinner.
I sauteed diced onion and garlic in olive oil until wilted. Pastu added diced chicken breast and continue sauteeing until chicken is cooked. Then, I added about 10 chopped up silverbeet leaves. Kalau takde silverbeets, boleh guna spinach, rasa dia lebih kurang aje.
Continue cooking until all the leaves have properly wilted and then add some powdered chicken stock and ground black pepper. Take it of the heat and let it cool down, once it’s cool down, add the ricotta cheese. If you like the filling cheesy and creamy, add more ricotta than silverbeets. If you like it full of veges, add slightly less ricotta. Slightly mash the ricotta so the mixture will be well mixed.
And then you can start filling the cannelloni tubes.
Cannelloni ni is a type of pasta.
People normally filled the tubes with ricotta mixture or cooked minced meat mixture.
How the tubes looked like after they’ve been filled.
Before the cooking process. I put a layer of bottled pasta sauce at the bottom of the dish, then put the filled cannelloni tubes, then the rest of the pasta sauce and top it of with grated mozzarella.
Then bake it in the oven covered with alfoil at 180°C for about 35-40 minutes.

After it’s baked (the photo didnt come out that great.)
It’s nice with green salad and bread but I malas nak buat salad tadi.
