This Thing Called Love!

MyC has this habit of telling her friends and teachers about my cooking. Last Friday, she and her classmates stayed back to set up their 'Horror House' for the school's Canteen Day on Saturday. It was going to be a long day for them. She had asked me to sponsor lunch for some of her friends. And by special demand...ahaks...they had asked for my spicy fried pasta. 

Well, I was more than happy to oblige. :D

I ran out of macaroni, so, spaghetti worked fine...



As always, it was a hit among those kids...*smirk*

The day before, I made Hainanese Chicken Rice....


Simmering a whole chicken....
It was so much fun cooking this 
than the roasted version.
When the chicken is done, I plunged the 
whole bird into a pot of icy cold water just to stop the cooking process.
It was indeed a hot and messy task, that I forgot altogether to take the photo!


The chicken rice after being fluffed up...


The steamed chicken that has been cut up and drenched
with a lovely condiment.... ;)

The simple fare with accompaniment
of stir fried kailan, and oh goodness, some left-over sambal tumis sotong!

...and as usual, my share for iftar that Thursday


 Desserts was fruits
and this lovely pavlova given by a friend's daughter
Well, we all know that Elmo bakes! hehehe! 

Thanks a lot Nadiah!

...and finding some space for a small portion of pavlova....

 
 .... was a little luxury I indulged  ;)

Aunty Lili,
Why do I get a feeling that bingeing on food equals to bingeing on blogging? I feel hungry everytime I "visit" you. Tak baik buat kita kempunan tau! har har har *evil laughs*

Brad,

I'm glad there's a cat as observant like you...hahahaha... Just between you and me, psst..cooking always takes my mind off my weariness. When I'm cooking I'm the happiest human ever! And it's easier to blog about food than anything else.

Next time, I leave some juicy chicken breast for you...hikhikhik

Lili said...

Shidah,

Bukan setakat sepiyuk, sekawah pung boleh! ekekekeke! Memang sedap chicken rice buat sendiri especially I love my chili sauce tu...hoho!

Where do I send you the recipe? Kat sini ke or facebook? Ok, better still, I'll call you. Amacam? hehee

Lili said...

CS,

Alah kander ni...jangan ler majuk. Kita buat sikit jer. Ayam aje terlebih, hahahaha... Imagine the next few days I'd be using the leftovers meat and stock for making cream of chicken soup. Hari tu, I buat nasi gor letak isi ayam yang di gor dulu. Pergghh...malas nak elaborate...hikhikhik!!!

Oh, takde bau hanyir sebab cuci ayam inside out guna tepung, pastu masa rebus ayam tu, I sumbat cavity dia dengan halia n bawang putih. Dalam stock tu ada a few ingredients I added. I'll post the recipe here nanti. Insy.

Lili said...

Akak laling,

Ehem..ehem...dah tarik balik 'do not disturb' sign kat door knob?

Hahaha, mata kucing tiap kali I beli kene rendam dalam dulu. Lepas rinse dua tiga kali. Tu yang terlebih rajin kupas terus. Senang ngap masa berbuka...hehehe!

Wan Sharif said...

When I first heard of nasi ayam.. I thought it is the rice for the chicken to eat.. muahaha ... orang kampong :)

Lili said...

Ayoh Wang,

I joke about that often too...but the other way round! "kalo tak belajar sunguh2 nanti takde kerje, terpaksa berebut makan nasi ayam..." That was what my teacher told us and I quipped, "best-lah cikgu...makan nasi ayam hari-hari!" ;)
