Cousin Dinner round 20! (okay, I exagerate!)…
This time, we decided to do a pot luck instead, but the group kept getting smaller… (oh well!)… more for us to eat… We kept the theme, “Asian”… and it was fun…!!
Forgive me and the lack of pictures from the “preparation” stages, as I was busy slacking off, and washing dishes and preparing for the “chef”… *stupid Boy*
The Boy insisted on doing an Asian dessert, as I decided on the theme… and he wanted to do it well!
Even I didn’t realise what he was up to, or the stages involved in it (hence the missing bits of information!)
“Sago Gula Melaka”, he said! Like it was the easiest thing in the world…
Fine, it wasn’t hard.. I was just lazy… and I thought he was insane!
And when the clock hit 7pm (the intended time for the guests to arrive), the Boy still hadn’t started on the cooking of the mains…
Thankfully, everyone was late!
The creation of our version of “Popocorn Chicken” –> I don’t know the recipe, the Boy just chucks things in the bowl too fast!
My wonderful “Nasi Lemak”, which is 3 cups rice cook with water and coconut milk, with quartered red onions and 1 knot of pandan leaf
The “brush” of lemongrass to baste the sate (satay) –> oil and evaporated milk
So here we have a overall shot of the food!
I was worried that we might have gone a tad overboard…
But good food, and good company does wonders for the appetite!
It was a pity a few cousins missed out (yet again!), but never fear, we shall make it a bigger blast the next round!
Maybe I’ll cook too, if I’m not feeling lazy ^_^
Let not hail, nor thunderstorm spoil the mood!
I’m just rambling now (obviously) as I have nothing interesting to say and the pictures speak for themselves!
I say “Well Done!”, to the Boy… he put in a lot of effort (more than I ever would have bothered) with the decoration and taste of the dessert and it was magnificent!
Can’t wait til the next dinner session!
