Every once in a blue moon, I will go through the clothes in our wardrobe.
To repack the changing of season clothes, to rearrange them nicely in order (again and again which will only last for 1 week the most), to put some in the Good Sammy pile and to discard some that are so tattered.
I do not understand The Other Half sometimes…
He keeps on wearing the same tattered t-shirts and singlets over and over again!
Padahal, banyak lagi baju dia dalam wardrobe tu yang dah berbulan tak berpakai.
But he keeps on grabbing the same tattered tshirts day in day out.
Ada sekali tu, dia nak pergi Bunnings pakai baju koyak rabak tu!
Luckily lah I stopped him just in time and forced him to change into something else.
He said, “I’m just going to Bunnings. No one cares how I look like.”
I said to him, “do you think that if you wear tattered clothes, Bunnings are going to be sympathetic and give you discounts for their stuff?”
Aduhai, laki I tu…..
(Bukannya takde duit nak beli tshirts lain, hehehee).
So, tadi I went through his clothes and threw out all the tshirts with holes in them.
Jenuh lah dia mencari baju kesayangan dia tu nanti…
Jangan dia pergi selongkar the rubbish bin to get them back dah lah, hahahahahaha….
Areyou guys usually like this?
Once you are so attached to your belongings, you’ll use them until someone forces you to throw them away?
Tshirts dia ni bukannya mahal and berjenama pun nak buat kan dia sayang sangat nak buang…
Agaknya sedap kot pakai tshirt berlubang2 ni, senang angin nak masuk, hikhikhik….
But lepas I dah kemas tu, rasa guilty pulak pi buang tshirts and singlets dia so I pun masak lah something different for dinner tonite .
I had some chicken thigh fillets to use up so lepas browse the Taste website, I got hooked to try this recipe, chicken normandy.
But seperti biasa, I ubah2 ikut what I have in hand.
I subs the dry apple cider and the apple cider vinegar with apple juice and brown malt vinegar.
I used the small fuji apples instead of granny smith (kat rumah ni memang tak pernah ada stock granny smith because no one likes it.)
And then instead of baking the chicken in the oven, I just cooked them on the stove top.
And instead on making the sauce separately, I added the apple juice+vinegar mixture and the stock to the chicken towards the end of the cooking.
I didn’t have sour cream either so I subs it with fresh cream.
So…I guess it’s not chicken normandy anymore lah eh because I’ve changed most things?
So, this is how my version of chicken not-normandy looks like. The apple makes the gravy taste a bit sweet so it balances the tartness of the apple juice and vinegar.
(The Other Half and the girls thought they were pineapple rings at first. When I told them they were apple rings, they were amazed).
And we had it with…
Caramelised onion and rosemary foccacia.
And steamed carrots and broccoli, mashed potato and bread sticks ( that I made using the some of the dough from the foccacia).
The mashed potato and the bread were really good for soaking up the wonderful gravy.
It was a delicious meal if we may say so .
