Hari ni hujan selebat2nya throughout the day with strong winds.
With a bit of tiny hails and thunderstorm pagi tadi.
And a lot of damage to a lot of houses from the storm last night.
A block of flat siap tercabut parts of the roof because of the storng winds.
Alhamdulillah, our house is still standing.
This coming week pun akan hujan setiap hari.
Macam mana lah baju nak kering weh!
I jemur bawah undercover area pun akan basah sikit balik bila the winds are so strong sebab bila angin tiup dgn kuat, the raindrops will fall nearly horizontal lah so obviously lah akan ditiup masuk bawah undercover area tu.
Masa ni lah rindu sangat nak tengok matahari balik, hehehehe…..
However, semalam we had some sunshine throughout the day, enough to dry the washings which made me feel so good.
See, I’m a simple woman, minor things like this can make me happy!
And since it was a sunny day, I pun made it my baking day .
I made a loaf of bread, a tray of brownies and a tray of raspberry marshmallow slice.
Loaf of bread tu was for dinner, brownies tu for Sunday school and the slice tu for our afternoon tea.
Sejak beli tepung 25kg ni, The Other Half selalu mintak I buat roti sebab dia kata rasa roti fresh takde tandingan.
I said to him, if he tells me 4 hours before he wants it and if I have the time, boleh lah I buat roti .
Kalau hari2 buat roti, maulah I kena pergi kedai beli tepung roti lagi soon!
For me, the slice is way too sweet sebab ada marshmallow and jam and ganache on top.
But yang bertiga tu said, “No they are not sweet! They are so good! Don’t change a thing!”.
And hari ni, I had to make another loaf of bread so we can have bread for breakfast and lunch esok.
Orang2 kat rumah ni especially Miss 14 can live on bread and butter happily every single day for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Dia tu kalau tak makan benda lain pun dia tak kisah asalkan ada bread and butter.
Macam orang melayu lah kan, ada nasi panas, telur goreng and kicap pun dah cukup!
But I pulak tak boleh lah mengadap bread hari2.
So malam ni I made pasta with fusion pesto, chicken pops and salad.
Kenapa I called it fusion pesto?
Sebab I used garlic, sundried tomatoes in oil, pine nuts, olive oil and taucu to make the pesto.
But I tak guna banyak lah taucu tu, just a little bit for added oomph and saltiness.
I rasa kalau guna banyak pun tak jadi hal but all the flavours kena seimbang lah kan.
Kalau Mat Saleh, sometimes they use their wet anchovies in pesto but I really cannot stand the taste so tu yang tukar ke taucu.
It’s obviously nice sebab Miss 14 didn’t say anything at all, she finished it all up!
And when you sprinkled parmesan and chilli flakes on it, it tasted even nicer!
