Christmas Food Stuffings In Me

OH OH.... not HO HO...
Yes, this post should be published a month ago... LOL... Nowadays my posts are indeed very backdated, so much happening that I did not have the time to write current happenings, unlike those days when I was still working, I had more time to blog than now I am not working.  As my friends used to call me.. "You are an octopus now that you retire."  I dare not contradict that... LOL...

Back to our Christmas celebration, we had our party in Sg. Buloh... er... not exactly a party, no dancing or singing but more on preparing food and stuffing our tummies.  LOL... Of course, I am not the one cooking, so much to see and learn while I was there.  I kept "ooohhh... ahhhhh.... " only cos everything looks new to me especially Risotti rice!  That day was the first time I ever tasted Risotti, quite embarrassed to say but still I do tell everyone here. 

Christmas isn't Christmas without a nice fat turkey, so someone said.  And so we had one ordered earlier from Jaya Grocer, first time ordering it so we did not know what to expect.  To our delight, the turkey was indeed very succulent, dry on the outside and moist on the inside.  It came with a meatloaf plus cranberry sauce.... And I think it cost around RM300....
Needs some carving done.... 
Together side by side... 
We ladies only know how to pose...  
Like this... 
And like that.... 
The rest of the job...leave it to the Man!
The hostess is a good cook... she made this...
Risotti... 
I thought I would not like it... 
I was wrong... it was very flavourful...
I wonder how this is done... too bad I was not around then... 
Spaghetti Aglio olio... 
Quiche... I took a big piece of this... 
Deviled eggs... also known as stuffed eggs... 
Yummy!!
My first helping without the turkey which is still under the "knife" then... 
Thanks to the cooks on this day... 
I really enjoy all the food stuffings laid on the table!

  2. I want to try that risotti as well. It looks very moist no? So after eating it, it was very flavourful?

  3. Here, we call this rice dish risotto. And it needs to be tended to all the time! Stirred every few minutes wile adding little amounts of water every couple minutes. It is a challenging dish to make, and most home cooks do not. Hurray for you, you got to taste it!!

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger!

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
