Pity My Shimeji..

Those who said that I am a good cook, think again!

In fact, I was contemplating whether I should put this up or not, it might be a BIG embarrassment for me... cos I have "murdered" a recipe, (excuse the pun).. I got the steps wrong and it turned out so different from her blog....

While I was cooking this, I was thinking, how come the outlook was so different from the her post??? How come hers looked so yummy and mine was like "yat piat si?" ... (x'cuse my pun again) ...

Ok, here are some pictures I took, this dish is called Stir-fried Beech Mushrooms with Salted Egg.... ( i wanna laugh already )... People normally say "murdering the song" but I "murdered the recipe"... hehehee...


the main ingredient-shimeji mushroom
*quote* rich in anti- oxidant & recently
found to have anti-cancer properties in them

After some minutes of cooking, mine turned out like this......a total makeover from the original !


where did i go wrong?


how come macam ni?

Then this morning I asked my "tutorial teacher" where I went wrong, step by step I related how I did it... after some "revision", she told me this step, that step... all the steps.... no wonder la different.. wrong cooking method la...

The only consolation is.... Fernie said it was very nice, so nice to bite... and even sked me to do it again when her brother comes back for his holidays !!!!

(If she knows how the original dish looks like, she wouldn't have said this, cos there is nothing for her to compare... what she doesn't know, won't hurt me.... LOL.... :()

  13. As long as boleh makan (edible) looks can close one eye. Think you gotta change the title & lyrics of "murder on the dance floor" to "murder on the kitchen floor". I always tell my soulmate this "whatever you cook I swallow, wherever I go you follow". At times whatever the outcome wallop..

    ReplyDelete
  14. LOL.... that's the worst you can do, Claire? Haiyorrr... you haven't seen my cooking yet ahh.... worst than yours. You know your potato chicken recipe that you gave me? The look horr, enuff to put off people from eating. But then again, it turn out nice, so sometimes, you just have to ignore the presentation. I'm sure yours very nice to eat despite of the way it looked like. LMAO....

  15. Merryn: i bet no one can beat me on this... for making the shimeji looks like maggots... hahahaaa...


    Media007: sure it look nice? then u r the first one to compliment.. lol...


    Elaine: never be deceived by looks, mixed with salted egg, it brings out the taste.. :) try it!


    via: one packet 4.90.. very little, i need another box if sons come back....


    Cheah: can i copy paste your quote? it is effective to give someone.. hahhaa...


    Cleffairy: only consolation was.. as i said, my girl likes it and asked to cook it again.. at least not the same old dishes as potato chicken... hahahaa....
