As usual, every year when December comes, the days are filled with so many things to do.
The girls have their end of the year excursion lah, their end of the year concert lah, their end of the year award ceremony lah.
The Other Half pun has his end of the year christmas parties and functions.
And I pulak have my end of the year baking, hehehe.
Every year I will give food hamper as end of the year gift for the girls’ teachers so this year I want to do it again too.
So, sekarang ni kena rajin2 surf the net cari interesting recipes for me to bake and make.
But selalunya I will ed up making similar kinds of goodies, something festive and nice .
Sambil2 bake goodies for the teachers, I will bake goodies for our Christmas jugak.
Bila Raya I bake goodies yang I suka and grew up with so bila Christmas I will make goodies yang The Other Half teringin and also goodies yang associated with Christmas.
Selalunya kalau I rajin, I will make fruit cake, fruit mince pies, biscotti, almond fingers, fudge, gingerbread cookies and truffles.
Kalau tak rajin, I beli aje, hehehe…..
This year for Xmas, we all masak turkey aje. I normally buy the ready seasoned and rolled turkey thighs, tinggal keluarkan dari kotak and masuk kan dalam oven.
Sangat lah senangnya!
But I will make the usual sides to go with the turkey lah. And also some desserts.
But this Xmas will be slightly more interesting because we’ve invited a few people over to celebrate makan2 with us.
Selama2 ni our Xmas celebration cuma berempat aje so bila ramai2, sure lagi meriah kan .
Tonite for dinner, I made crumbed chicken breast wrap.
the chicken breast I salut dengan cornflakes crumb+coriander+cumin+paprika+chicken stock powders.
Then I deep fried them.
Makan dengan sauteed zucchini, cherry tomatoes and lettuce. All petik from the back garden.
I made my own dressing for the wrap. I used mayonnaise+dijon mustard+tomato sauce+ chilli sauce, mix them all together until rasa sedap.
For the wrap pulak, I used lebanese bread which is thicker than tortilla.
And it is nicer to spray the bread with olive oil and heat them on the stove top for a few minutes just before serving.
