This is gonna be a throwback post cause i procrastinated. Lol
The biggest news last weekend was probably the opening of the new supermarket near our place.
waaa i tell you im loving this new convenience!
Bulan pork section!!!! (hate the smelly aussie pork)
I can now make pork ribs and siobak and buy pork by the weight instead of prepacked
Anyway the supermarket’s pretty well stocked considering its small size.
Now lets talk about
hahah i hosted my cousins over the weekend last week.
Made curry and beehoon and ovened some
nuggets cause it was only a small group.
I started cooking way early at 8am so that i could have the curry with frozen prata for breakfast!!!!
I used Hai’s curry chicken paste ($2.75) its the same brand as the paste i use for laksa!
It was my 2nd time making the curry via this paste. this time, we used frozen winglets (blanched and marinated with salt overnight to remove the frozen taste)
Added a bit of my flavour to the curry by adding chopped shallots and garlic before frying in the paste.. and also more coconut milk(less spicy)
Our thermomix beehoon attempt this time
was made with stir fried chicken 🐔 , and broccoli 🥦.
We added chicken stock to make it more
flavourful and soy sauce and pepper.
It was more on the bland side so that it could go well with the curry. (but perhaps i could have made it yummier so that it could be enjoyed on its own)
The kids (my nephews) also walloped so many nuggets that day 😂
We had left over curry so we made
on one of the weekdays earlier this week (i think it was tuesday?)
▪️Chicken or Veg stock mixed with the water to cook the rice
▪️A tiny blob of butter
We didnt do meat for this One Pot cause we were having it with our left over curry
I liked how the pumpkin added sweetness to the rice.
Overall it was quite satisfactory – especially for lazy days
This NZ avo! I think i bot it from NTUC
is damnnnnn awesome.
so i bot it 2 weeks ago (chose some mildly green ones and kept it in the fridge to prolong its lifespan)
Just cut it the other day to enjoy it. Its superb – chunky and a beautiful ripe green!
So i added some pepper and just a little kewpie sauce and kinda finished the whole thing on my own. hehe
I used to eat avo alot when staying w my parents coz my mom and i love it. She will always make smashed avo sandwiches for me to take to work.
Now that i have moved out, she and i have to enjoy our avos separately – Alone. 😭
She still does her sandwiches but i usually have it plain coz i dont buy huge loaves of sandwich bread!!!
Iuiga had a popup at raffles place this week and i could buy this right away without paying for delivery! $23 OK CAN.
Had my first try at it – not too sure of the results / cleanliness yet cause all i felt are vibrations. 😂
Let me try this for a longer period of time and then see how
fotd mid week with meitu! aiyo i damn slow but this meitu really nuddbad at enhancing haha
I changed up my make up routine – mascara + thin thin eyeliner and lip tint!! (i used to do laneige two tone eyeshadow + eyeliner)
Bitmoji never fails to make me laugh with whatever emoji they come up with.
so this is the taking a poop emoji
But theres something so wrong with thr drawing!
WHERE ARE MY HANDS?!?!?! 🤣😂🤣😂
Since we are at bitmoji.. i can finally use this emoji
Last day of work today at the place i’ve been with for the past 3 years
Loved that the past 3 years flew by in a blink of an eye just cause everythings so dynamic and fast moving.
Think the new place would also be the same, but hopefully better? 🙂
Anyway my heart had slight 依依不舍 feels today – grateful for the smooth transition and for the colleagues who made it possible.
Since I was home slightly earlier, decided to do heavier cooking
Tieponytails Shepherd’s Pie recipe!!!!
The first time we did this was at Verons place during xmas. I was pretty blown away by the pie that night i knew i had to try it myself. hahahah
Its always a war zone in the kitchen when i cook 😂
There wasnt minced beef available at our supermarket so we got minced pork instead
And i used shitake mushrooms
I think my favourite part is watching the “sauce” thicken after putting in the flour and slowly adding in the chicken stock
We had a bunch of broccoli left so we steamed it with the thermomix and also added it into the mixture (this was our veg in replacement with frozen peas cause J doesnt eat them)
I didnt use any tomato paste but used this tonkatsu sauce which i already have instead (again coz J doesnt like tomato… buttttttt the truth is, the tonkatsu sauce is actually made of tomato! and other things like apple/prune/lemon/carrots/onion 😂😂)
I used 3 small potatoes for the mashed which was clearly not enough. It was a really thin potato layer (with small holes where the meat peeked through hahaha)
But we sort of covered the holes up with mozerella cheese and then baked it in the oven
TADAH FINAL PRODUCT!
Too much of a portion for us to finish so we only ate half .. keeping the other half for lunch tomorrow
