4 days of Easter long weekend, we spent them at home.
Orang lain pergi jalan2 makan angin merata2, we are quite happy tak drive anywhere (except to the Masjid for The Little Misses’ sunday school semalam).
We just stayed at home or used the bikes to go out.
We went bike riding on Saturday to the shops and I cycled to the Ustazah’s house pagi tadi.
In a way, quite good jugak lah naik basikal pergi the shops on Saturday tu.
Sebab I tak boleh spent too much money buying heavy kitchen stuff walaupun tengah sale.
I saw a gorgeous Pete Evans marble chopping board with wood border which was on 80% sale. Punyalah cantik and murah after the sale but blooming heavy…
Maulah kena jegil and bebel dengan The Other Half kalau I beli that thing…
Sape lah larat kayuh basikal bawak that marble board tu, hahahahaha… Mau I kena tinggal dengan them if I had to carry the chopping board on my bike.
Walaupun duduk aje kat rumah, I still tak rajin sangat masak.
Sebab still bersedih sebab takde oven.
Segala recipe yang I browsed yang nampak sedap gilers, semua memerlukan oven so tu yang terus buat I lagi tak motivated nak masak (alasan aje tu actually, hehehe.)
Slalunya masa Easter break, I will bake Hot cross buns but since the big oven tak boleh guna, tak dapatlah we all merasa hot cross buns this year…
Last nite, I masak nasi and lauk pauk since nasi and lauk pauk cuma pakai stove top aje kan.
I made Thai green chicken curry (atas permintaan..)
Five spice fried banana prawns.
And terung and bilis goreng berchili. That was the last of our eggplants from the garden. All the eggplants dah kena cabut sebab dah tak berapa cantik and kena serang dgn caterpillars.
And malam ni pulak, I made pasta bolognaise (yang juga tak memerlukan penggunaan oven ).
I cooked fettucine for me while the others had spiral pasta.
I baru tau yang orang2 yg pakai braces find it hard to eat noodles and long pasta.
Miss 12 cukup tension bila makan mee goreng or spaghetti or fettucine ni sebab dia kata the noodle bits will get stuck on her braces while she’s eating and she doesn’t the feelings.
She said macam mana nak makan dengan selesa if asik kena get the stuck bits out all the time.
A few time I masak long pasta and mee goreng, she couldn’t finish them so I had to make toasts for her.
I prefer to eat fettucine or spaghetti with bolognaise sauce. Rasa dia lagi sedap I rasa even though pasta is pasta, they taste the same, hehehe….
The Other Half will be going back to work tomorrow and The Little Misses will continue with their school holidays just vegetating at home….
