chicken drumstick steak

It is a good meal idea, to turn drumstick into steak. it becomes more presentable, cook faster and feels like more to eat too. It was inspired by the chicken rice i had in secret recipe. so I suggested to my maid to present the drumstick this way instead.

it was meant to be a western dish - lemon mustard mint chicken. My creative maid indonised it. added  soya sauce, limau pulut leaves, honey and sugar. I was hungry n ate without much thinking. But once I hear my hubby commented about the strong soya sauce. I feel rather angry about it. Why do I get a helper that does not follow recipe given to her. Hai that's what u get when u have an egoistic creative helper who likes to have a bit of her identity in everything she does. Everyday is a surprise in things she does.

Pesto spagetti - meals done in less than 45min.

including washing too. absolutely healthy, and it's vegetarian. Easy for kids, coz all veges are blended. one more family one dish meal on my list.

this time i did without pine nuts n cheese. haven't got any pine nuts and can't stand cheese these days.

ingredient a: ( blend till fine)
some tbsp of pine nuts ( dry roast 2 min)
hand full of basil
2 cloves of garlic

ingrediant b: ( add in later, coarsely blend)
3 tbsp of olive oil
2 small tomato deseeded
some sea salt to taste

Heat some olive oil in a pan and JUST MIX the pesto mixture and grated parmesan cheese above with your pasta.

The session was broadcast live to adeline.

Environmentally Conscious

These days I have been more environmentally conscious. We constantly remind ourselves to bring bags and stainless steel container to pasar malam.

Today I witness some great effort from a shopping mall. great practice. Separate your garbage. I wish to implement at home too.

Action Day

Today I have been efficient. I managed to do a few things which I've been dragging it for months. So It feels good to have those things sorted out.
1. serviced waja and fixed the handle.
2. finally found out that i can't return the bolster cover. bought more than 7 days.
3. Found out where to get the replacement philip twist blender jar.
4. got my spectacles fixed.

So I think i am worth a treat. Went to Brickfields for vegetarian. It was a lovely meal. These days I just don't like meat much. There was brinjals, potato and a chinese style mixed vege tofu. The brinjals was very nicely done. so were the dhal curry. All very gentle to the tummy. Soothing indian home cooking. I will be going again.
