Occasionally I do cook 2 completely different meals for dinner at the same time.
Mostly either because the adults want something quite hot so I have to cook something else for the girls.
Or when I want to eat something completely different which I know no one else will like.
Like tonight for example, I want to eat my homegrown experiment which I know no one else will touch so kenalah masak benda lain for them.
The Other Half loves the roast potatoes I made on Monday nite and has been asking for it again!
Padahal baru aje hari Rabu kan so takkan lah nak eat the same thing again…
But since I want to eat my own food, I pun buat kan lah the roast potatoes for them again…
I wanted to serve crumbed fish with the roast potatoes but I takde stock crumbed fish in the freezer so terpaksalah tukar menu at the last minute.
Couldn’t decide on what meat to give them so I made something up from leftovers ….
Miss 13 tanya, “what’s the meat to go with the roast potato Mum?”
I answered, “mystery meat…..” followed by an evil laugh, har har har (gaya Brad the ‘evil’ cat), hehehehe.
This was what I serve them for dinner tonite…
I told them to taste it first then figure out what kind of meat it is….
Semua muka seriau aje nak makan, muahahahahaha…..
It doesn’t look that bad kan!
Makan pulak dengan steamed veges and roast potatoes in sage and garlic butter, terus lah jadi bertambah2 sedapnya, hahahaha.
It’s actually crumbed beef schnitzel which I sliced and put in a baking dish.
Then I mix some bolognese sauce with ricotta cheese and pour it on the sliced schnitzel. Then I just scatter some shredded colby on it and bake it in the oven alongside the roast potatoes.
I guess it’s a bit like parmigiana but caca marba version.
Everyone said it tasted delicious so tak kisah lah kan mystery meat ke tak, hehehehe.
Nasib baik takde sape nak komplen kena makan mystery meat from the leftovers .
While they had that for their dinner, I had my own special dinner.
I made pecal but with kuah kacang instead of the real kuah pecal jawa style (sebab I takde cekur).
I beria sangat2 nak makan pecal sebab my experiment to grow my own beansprouts dah menjadi.
(Padahal kan, Mak I kat kampung tu setiap kali buat pecal, memang dia akan grow her own taugeh, sikit pun dia tak heran, hahahahaha).
the bean sprouts are curly instead of straight like the shop-bought ones.
My rojak had raw beansprouts, steamed broccoli, carrots, kacang panjang, tahu and keropok lekor.
I grew the beansprouts guna method yang I jumpa kat blog Olive.
I told the girls and The Other Half, “No one’s allowed to touch this teapot. Do not try to make tea or coffee in it!”
Hikhikhikhik….garang kemain .
The Other Half says he loves this kind of beansprouts, so dia meratah mentah2 macam tu aje macam makan anggur, heeeeeee……
