In the Kitchen
Mommy is definitely not a good cook as Daddy has often show his funny look when tasting Mommy’s homecook food. Well, what to do, my Mom died so early, all her secret recipe didn’t pass to me. I only manage to learn soups from her. The rest I do trial and error from all sort of sources. Most of the time, it fails..dunno why also lah, maybe never put the heart to cook haha…Last month, I decided to *request* for an oven, after looking at all the yummy recipes Twinsmom made with her oven. So I told Daddy, I want an oven for my belated birthday gift. Of course I slotted in some good words to make him buy for me :P. So he actually went to get it. Very good bargain indeed, RM90 for a Pensonic oven. Since I’m a beginner, better not get something too fancy. I’m really happy with the gift. *Muaks* *Muaks*Ever since then, I started using the oven day in and out. I would say, at least 2 times a week. And I find it so so convenient, of course minus the oily floor too!!I’ve tried many recipes, some are self creation, some are modified from recipe book, and some from blogger Mommies too. 

So here’s what Mommy been baking for dinner @ home. As for Daddy, he still show his OK face!! Everytime I ask him, he would just answer…OK lah…that’s all his comment on the food *kik sum*. But I can see that at least he’s more willing to eat my food haha….

why it failed: the cheese got stuck to the aluminium foil!!!

There are a few more hall of fame, didn’t took pics though :p

Tomorrow’s dinner: Bake threadfin (I think it’s mai yau) with banana leave and lemon slices. Lets hope I can get banana leave, or else will be back to aluminium foil.Next in line, shepherd pie. I’m going to get a proper oven-proof casserole dish first (from IKEA), then I’ll try it out hehehe…
