post-exam cook-out!

9 Jun

after my first paper today.
Cheok came over for dinner and we were all suppose to study. haha
but. unfortunately. I was too drained. and just wanted to give myself a break
before starting the grueling studying again tomorrow.

so dinner was a special one tonight (:
Baby decided to cook one or rather two recipes found in our new cook book by Gordon Ramsay

We chose to try the sticky baked chicken drumsticks and the cucumber raita.
with a side of potatoes fried in duck fat! wheeee! (:

was such a fulfilling dinner
and made all of very happy. and I’m very sure our tummies were as well. hehe

the sticky honey sauce with rice wine vinegar just had a punch to it which we all LOVED. (:

a close up! hehe. super duper yummy!

baby made the cucumber raita. but added chopped garlic into it as well.
giving it an extra kick! hehe was so good!

and these potatoes were just to die for!
crunchy on the outside.
soft on the inside.
YUMS YUMS YUMS! hehe

and for dessert.
I got to make the Sticky Date pudding that was shown on Masterchef Australia a couple of weeks ago.
at long last. haha.
had the mind and heart to give it a try! hehe
and i must say.
I am super happy with how it turned out! hehe
from the pudding, to the praline to the butterscotch sauce.
absolutely loved it!

Baby holding up the whole piece of almond praline! hehe
nice colour aye? hehe
baby helped me with it. (:

the puddings coming out of the oven.
i didn’t have the metal holders.
so I just used the ramekins
and it came out nicely as well. hehe
almost like a souffle right? haha.
but really moist and spongy on the inside.

served with the butterscotch sauce and whipped cream with vanilla seeds.
AWESOME! (:
super happy hehe.

Recipes will be up soon!
