Semalam I spent so many hours beautifying the corkboard.
Pagi2 dah pergi kedai utk print out all the photos and then balik tu terus berkerja keras pinning the photos up.
Patut lah bertahun2 malas giler I nak buat!
Sebab it was quite a boring job!
Tapi bila dah siap, cantik pulak so berbaloi lah berjam2 duduk mengadap corkboard tu, hehehehe…
Ini gambar yang I ambik a quarter way there…
And the end result…
The Other Half kata, “we can call this the feature wall now.”
I didn’t just stop at that wall.
I found this metal wall art at the shop semalam and I think it is so apt for coffee lovers like The Other Half and I.
So, I pun sangkut lah kat dinding sebelah coffee machine tu so my ‘barista’ can look at it everytime he makes coffee for us .
The Other Half loves it so much!
And since it’s officially Spring already, I picked some lavenders to brighten our house.
Selalunya people dry the lavender flowers tapi I baca, you can still put the fresh lavenders in vases just like any other fresh cut flowers.
But since they are quite short, I had to put them in a water glass instead of a vase.
And now, to our dinner.
I made roast chicken with chips and salad for dinner last nite.
It’s quite a big chicken so banyak lah leftovers for sandwich filling untuk lunch tadi and esok .
For the salad, I used mixed lettuce leaves, orange, pear, cucumber, cherry tomatoes and pistachio nuts.
For the chicken gravy pulak, I used the chicken juice collected in the roasting tray when I roasted the chicken.
I transferred all the juice (the fat+burnt bits+everything) into a small pot.
Heat it up on medium heat. If you want to, you can strain the oil out and throw that oil.
Add some plain flour to it and whisk it continuously until all the flour is incorporated nicely in the juice and the gravy has thickened a bit.
Then add some kicap masin and pepper to taste and some water if the gravy is too thick.
The gravy is done!
Senang kan nak buat gravy ni .
