It’s only been a week into Ramadhan and I have already started recycling my kuih menu, hehehe.
I guess when the fasting people asked for the same kuih, who am I to say No kan!
And when he specifically said, “I would like to have the green balls again for Iftar tonight exactly like the ones you made the other night without any changes whatsoever, please.”
Kenalah I buat .
But I guess I should be thankful sebab dia cuma mintak nak makan the easy peasy buah melaka instead of asking for croquemboche or salted caramel macarons or kek lapis 10 tingkat kan!
Dia tau setakat mana kerajinan bini dia ni, kahkahkahkah….
We’ve also decided that Friday night is our leftover night during this fasting month(if we have any leftovers from the whole week of cooking).
All the leftovers that I could find in the freezer and the fridge will be taken out and displayed for everyone to choose from.
And my job is just to reheat them in the microwave.
I don’t even have to make any kuih on Friday night!
I just open the freezer and take out the shop-bought frozen pau, the shop-bought frozen ricotta puff parcels and any other frozen ‘kuih’ I can find in the freezer and put them in the oven or in the steamer.
And everyone is very happy!
Tu sebab my fridge and freezer besar gedabak, hikhikhikik…..
But last night kenalah masak sebab Friday night dah lepak2 tak masak apa2.
i found a rack of lamb in the freezer so terfikir nak masak lamb.
I made the lamb exactly like the last lamb rack I roasted.
They were as good as the last time!
But this time, we had them with pasta in home-made sundried tomato pesto instead on roast potato.
The combination of pasta and lamb was just superb (to our taste buds).
The Other Half said that he’s willing to fork out $50-$60 at a restaurant to eat this type of meal.
And then Miss 8 piped in and said, “I will pay $90 to eat this at a restaurant.”
I said to them, “God! I do not want you guys to ever fork out that much money for a meal doesn’t matter how good it is!”
Then The Other Half said the sweetest thing again, “You have definitely spoiled my restaurant outing because everytime I go anywhere, I will always think that you can definitely cook the same food at home, better. So, I don’t feel like eating them!”
Isn’t that nice of him, heeeee……
I made the pesto using semi-dried tomatoes in olive oil, roasted walnuts, grated parmesan, garlic, salt and pepper and loads of olive oil.
Give them a good blitz in the grinder.
When you want to use it, just sautee them for a bit in olive oil (to cook the garlic) and then mix the cooked pasta into the pesto.
Serve it with green salad to soften the ‘richness’ of the lamb and the intensity of the pesto.
Kalau lah bukan bulan puasa, memang I rasa The Other Half and Miss 8 akan berebut to habiskan the last rack of the lamb untuk lunch today, heeeee
But everytime I masak mee or yang seangkatan dengannya, tak pulak dia puji I lebih2 because noodles are not his favourite food doesn’t matter who cooks them, hahahaha….
