Miss 8 told me tadi, “it’s 24 more days to my birthday.”
24 more days, still a long time to go, still baaaaaaanyaaaak masa lagi nak plan kalau nak buat apa2….
Last year we celebrated her birthday in M’sia, the year before we celebrated it at this house (that we just moved into for a few weeks) with a chef party.
This year, kalau we all nak buat apa2 pun, she says she just wants to invite her 2 BFFs from school…
Sejuk perut Mummy yang mengandungkan dia mendengar, hahahahaha……
Setakat 2 BFFs aje, small matter mah….
Give them a movie to watch, let them play outside with their toys and give them something nice to eat, they’ll be happy!
But one of her BFFs tu pulaknya is allergic to a lot of things so kena fikir about her jugak kalau nak buat menu…
And Miss 8 has already decided what cake she wants to have on her birthday.
Luckily she just wants a Maltesers cake which is basically any cake she wants (most preferably chocolate or marble or choc orange), covered in either ganache or choc buttercream icing and decorated with loads and loads of Maltesers!
Hehehehe……senang kan! . Definitely I can make that one easily sebab tak payah menggunakan any cake decorating skills (that I severely lack) at all.
Anything with Maltesers will be loved by the kids and adults, heeee…..
We are also going out somewhere to celebrate, just the four of us, on her birthday.
Will cerita about that more once it’s happened…
This was our dinner last night…
Potato gratin with grilled sausages and green salad.
My potato gratin is basically layered sliced raw potatoes topped with sauteed sliced brown onion and garlic in a casserole dish. Which is then covered with a mixture of cream, sour cream, milk, mustard, powdered chicken stock and pepper. Then I bake it at 180C for about 90 minutes until the potato is cooked and the top browned nicely.
Some recipes just use potatoes only without the onions but I like mine to have a bit more taste. And some recipes just use cream purely. But I had some sour cream to be used up, tu yang guna the sour cream.
If you want it to be more decadent, you can add some grated cheese to the cream/milk mixture.
