I was sitting on the swing on my verandah while updating this entry:) I felt so good- nothing much to care,nothing much to think- it was raining and i ve just made pizza for the second time ,my mom was on the sofa- telling old stories, Stevie was snuggling comfortably next to me:) How i wish the evening never end, it was like when i was small in my house in my hometown...
Then i write this entry.....
I had this delicious Fishhead&Freshwater prawn noodles at Old Asia Cafe with Bff and ex staff last week- this dish is one of my favourite- simply good:)
My lunch buddy- not partner in crimes but partner in buying groceries:);)
Another winner lunch for last week- Yong Tow Foo in Curry broth- so sedap:):
Bekal for the girls to kindy- colourful beehoon.
Dinner: i made this "Bali Roast Chicken"- I never been to Bali and you can never get this recipe from anywhere- it is how i imagine Bali people roast their chicken..he he but it turned out really good- i tumbuk turmeric and ginger, rub chicken with mountain salt, rub the tumeric and ginger plus 2 spoonfull of fried garlic in oil (the one in the bottle) - after you mix well place it in the magic pan and roast to perfection.
and dont forget to prepare hot tea to go with "Bali Roast Chicken".
But when the road was jam, the body was tired i opted for simple dinner like this : macaroni,chicken and broccoli soup.
The best dessert- pearl corn from Cameron.
And passion fruit to add more passion in life.
Last Friday i urged my husband to come back early for dinner as the girls cant wait to celebrate his birthday- the papa is a Merdeka Boy- but we were stuck in a jam.
I promised the girls to make pavlova for the papa- we arrived late at home but i keep my promise.
They always happy when i made pavlova- i guess pavlova makes everybody happy:):)
They made this Merdeka cum Birthday Hat at school for their papa. Happy Birthday papa we love you very much.
Saturday we went to pick Uwan at maklang's house after attending my big boss's open house Ahahhh..he introduced me to his sweet SIL- ha ha malu lah,my big boss pun baca my merepek story- Azlin if you are reading this- you are so sweet and so nice meeting you and your beautiful sister. You said Uwan reminds you of your grandma so i am putting a special picture of Uwan here:) Ha ha penuh bedak my sister letak after mandi;)
My Mia was so happy to pick her Uwan.
And Tia was dreaming all the way- i think she was dreaming about the house by the beach;):)
On the way back after we picked Uwan the two insisted of buying cake for papa- ishhh lucky you papa- your girls love you so much:) They said pavlova was the advanced celebration- must buy cake on the day itself.
I complied and bought Miss Red Velvet with the swirl cream cheese.
The happy 2+1:);)
Today- it was raining since morning and we didn't go out anywhere- morning i cooked Nasi lemak and lunch was beef stew- i had an indication that the girls are going to be hungry soon- so by 2.30 i prepared the pizza dough.
I used one simple recipe for thin crust pizza dough- and it was good- anybody interested can give a try- add half sachet of mauripan yeast into a bowl containing of 3/4 cup of water plus 2 tablespoon of warm water and 2 tablespoon of sugar- let it settle for 5 mins until you see the foam- once done add 2 cups of plain flour and 1/2 teaspoon of salt- mix well and scrap the flour that stick to the bowl wall. After that sprinkle some flour on the kneading surface and knead the dough until it becomes soft- keep in a bowl and rub with olive oil around it, cover with cloth and leave for 1 1/2 hour to rise up and double the size.
The dough after being covered with olive oil.
After the dough has double up the size you can cut it into 4, take one portion flatten it on baking sheet on a tray and add any topping you like.
For ours- i just spread some pasta sauce and lots and lots of cheese because that's how the girls their pizza to be.
Pre heat the oven at 190 dg and bake well until golden brown and you can see the cheese boiling.
Tadaaaa.... the homemade California Thin Crust Pizza with cheese.
I went to my garden to look for some basil leaves- i can only find 7 leaves exactly he he.
The nice pizza.
Dah habis the first round they asked for a second round- the good mama complied;)
This time i made it thinner so it was more crunchy.
That's how we spent our day today- Night,night everybody- the writer is very tired- the maid supposed to arrive tonight- hopefully she arrives safely.
