We were having dinner when The Other Half suddenly said…
“we’ve been married nearly 17 years and you still could come up with new dishes for dinners.”
“I wonder how many dishes you’ve cooked in that 17 years?”
Then I said to him, “We cooked together in the first year of our married life. Then when we moved to Malaysia, we ate out more than we cooked. I guess I started to properly cook dinner for the family for the past 10 years.”
Then he started counting…
“Let’s just say you cook about 300 dinners a year give or take so that would be 3000 dinners you’ve cooked so far. And you still can come up with new dishes isntead of the same old dinners every time which is really good.”
(itu tak termasuk breakfast and lunch and snacks and kuih muih in between kan, hehehe).
Awwwwww….. He’s a sweet talker that guy!
That’s because I cooked gnocchi a different way tonite .
First I cooked a white sauce using cream and milk with a bit of tomato paste in it. So it’s slightly rosé colour to the sauce. Then I added broccoli and peas for the vege factor.
Then I cooked the gnocchi and lay it in an oven-proof dish.
Pour the sauce on the gnocchi until all covered, then sprinkle the grated mozzarella or colby, the smoked salmon, toasted pine nuts and the torn basil leaves.
Put it under the grill until the cheese has all melted.
The end product.
Sprinkle some more pine nuts and smoked salmon just before serving.
It’s very creamy and rich, definitely a dish to be eaten very rarely unless you are trying to pile on some kilos, hehehe….
