Noon Break At Dunelm, Aberdeen

WEEKDAYS...

Each day I look forward to having a good afternoon tea with my evergreen friend, Mary.  She is a very busy lady, managing the whole Brentwood Villa all by herself most of the time.  Waking up early each morning, she prepares breakfast for her guests, according to their requests, Scottish breakfast, continental or even Asian when it is needed.  After that, she does the housekeeping, running up and down the stairs with the laundry and stuff.  I always say "aiyoh, aiyoh" whenever she tells me what she has been doing.  I can imagine how it is like and I feel myself growing tired even by listening.  LOL...

She definitely needs a good rest by noon.... and by resting means coming out from the B'n'B to relax in one of the cafes outside.  She will take a couple of  hours off, having a nice hot drink or soup and then doing groceries at the supermarket before heading back home again to wait for guests and do dinner for them.  No joke! 
On this particular noon, we had this thick hot tomato soup with a freshly baked bun... 
One set 3 pounds sterling... 
Very appetising for me... thick soupy fresh tomatoes.. I like it!
Just the both of us at Dunelm... 
While she rested her legs, I went around window shopping...
They are a chain retailer for bedding, curtains, soft furnishings 
plus kitchen equipment and homewares...
So much to see and to buy... and yet not I... 
LOL...

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

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

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...
