It’s my birthday and I can have a party if I want to

It’s my birthday today thus the makan2 celebration I had at home this morning.

Unfortunately, it’s a work day and also a school day so cuma gang Mak2 aje lah yang sambut dengan I pagi tadi, hehehe.

The Other Half and I akan sambut our birthdays sama2 with the girls nanti on Saturday since our birthdays are so close anyway.

Alhamdulillah, the party went well.

Everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves because there was a lot of talking, laughing and eating going around.

So, what did I end up cooking for the party?

I made seafood nyonya kari laksa makan dengan beehoon and mee kuning, lamb in filo pastry (macam yang I buat for dinner the other day) makan dengan caramelised onion foccacia and bean salad.

Then on the side I goreng popia/ spring rolls and keropok lekor (Ganu mari yang my Sis brought with her a few weeks ago).

For dessert pulak I made butternut snap tartlet, marble cheesecake, kesari, strawberry meringue mash (or kalau kat UK, it’s known as Eton mess) and creme caramel as my birthday cake.

But then the tetamu brought with them tepung pelita, kuih talam kacang merah, crostolli, buah melaka and red velvet cupcakes.

Punyalah banyak makanan, memang penuh satu meja and then aftet that penuh giler our perut, hehehehe…..

Layan lah ye gambar the food…

Ini satu meja penuh dengan the stuff I made. The other dining table, penuh dengan the desserts the guests brought along.

the marble cheesecake and the kesari (which came from a packet by Baba’s).

Butternut snap tartlets.

The strawberry meringue mash. I made the meringues semalam and then made strawberry coulis pagi tadi. Then I whipped some fresh cream. When you want to assemble it, you break the meringue into big pieces in a glass bowl, dollop the whipped cream on top of it, then pour the strawberry coulis on the cream. Then gently mix all of them together. Put it in the fridge until you are ready to serve it.

Senang sangat nak buat but sangat sedap!

My creme caramel birthday cake, first time I buat, nasib baik jadi. But then bila I terlangkupkan onto the plate, tersenget pulak duduknya, lantak lah kau labu, hehehe.

The mee kari lupa pulak nak ambik but i dah selalu tayang mee kari pun kat blog ni.

And ini pulak salah satu gambar tuan rumah tengah membuka her presents.

Dah makin bertambah usia tuan rumah…

When I first started the blog, I was only a young 37+ girl, now dah 42 umur I, hikhikhik….

Kuih kesari tu yg warna kuning tu ke? Apa nama lain dia ye? And ada jual dlm Baba's paket? interesting, hemm... saya mencari short cut recipe/paste kuih for ramadhan ni..

lemongrass said...

Noir,
something to do with July babies being always gorgeous and young at heart? ;-), hahaha.
Thank you for the wish.

Alang,
thank you and amin ya rabbal al amin...

Chazie,
thank you, amin...

Lurpak,
Thank you.
The kesari comes in a green packet by baba's, it's in 'powder' form, rupa semolina tak masak lagi tu. Then you have to add it to boiling water, and stir for a few minutes until thickens, then add some butter/ghee to it. Dia suruh add banyak, but I cuma add separuh aje the butter sbb tak larat tengok bnyk sgt butter, hehehe. Then stir some more until all mixed nicely and cooked. Pastu, letak dalam dcontainer, and all done :-).
