I’m quite amazed at the reaction my previous post has generated from the readers of this blog.
Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart for all the encouragements, the warm loving thoughts and for the flatteries about my cooking abilities, hehehe.
It did get me down at first because I feel like they look down on us because they think we don’t have enough money to go out every so often and maybe they think we are cheapskates and scrooges for not wanting to spend money eating out.
She did say she kesian dengan I cos I have to cook every single night without any break, sure penat…
Like The Other Half said, “we have the money but we’d rather spend it on something else”. .
And no, this friend doesn’t read my blog and doesn’t even know the name of this blog.
And since we don’t entertain much, dia tak lah pernah kena jemput datang dinner to our house to see what kind of dinners I serve my family.
Setakat open house masa raya and the occasional makan2 get together aje lah dia dapat merasa my air tangan .
Dekat Perth ni banyak restoran halal sebab ramai Muslims but mostly asian restaurants and middle eastern lah or seafood.
So, my friend yang sorang yang akan eat out every weekend ni slalunya eat out at the asian restaurants or the middle eastern or eat seafood lah.
For me, kalau kat asian restaurants ni, sometimes, baiklah I masak sendiri kat rumah aje, hehehehe…
And sometimes I rasa the food yang I cook pun dah ala2 restoran (sape lagi nak puji my cooking kalau bukan ny family and I kan, hahahaha) so tu yang buat The Other Half and I rasa lagi malas nak makan kat luar and waste money kat luar.
Baik I beli the nicest ingredients and cook them myself.
Like last night, this was what I cooked.
See, tak makan kat luar pun we all dinner ala2 restaurant food kan.
I marinated the lamb racks in olive oil, rosemary, lemon slices, honey, mustard and salt.
After searing the lambk racks in a hot pan, I transferred the racks into the baking tray.
Laying them on top of a bed of roasted sweet potatoes and potatoes.
Bake them in a medium hot oven until cook to your liking.
I baked it for 30 mins and it was just perfect. Still pink and tender but not baaa-ing.
We had it with gravy and the roast potatoes and veges.
Everyone devoured everything on their plates.
Lepas tu The Other Half said, “See! that’s why I don’t want to go out because I know you can cook it as well at home.”
