Fantabulous dinner

8 May
Friday nights are always fabulous dinner nights.
Baby and I try new recipes to cook and bake.
just so to take the stress off that is induced from Uni or work.
and it always works! (:

So this week. Baby decided to make one of the dishes that I have been wanting to try :

Stuffed Chicken Legs with Pea and Broad-bean Risotto

It had alot of preparation before you actually get to sink your teeth into the yums.
So thank you for the effort sweets!

my baby THE chef ♥

7 May
I ended quite late yesterday from Uni.
but had already planned to go to the gym with Siti
and so I didn’t go back on my word.
and we did! (:
and you know what was the best thing
and made me the luckiest girl in the world?
it’s when you reach home after a grueling exercise session (actually wasn’t too bad)
and smell the awesome yummy smell of dinner prepared by my baby (:
and very well know that dinner is going to be awesome!

and so it was (:

after watching so much F word (a Gordan Ramsay cook show)
we tend to try everything we could that he put up the recipes for.
so tonight. baby tried the

Dover sole with shrimp butter sauce

more peektures of the food. yums!

love from my boy

(Closed on Tuesdays)

so i had the best sichuan food evertonight
thanks to Peggy (:
it was awesome. hehe.
thanks for inviting us! hehe
the food was spicy, oily and everything that will make your stomach churn.
yes i know. doesnt sound too nice.
but trust me. the food was yumms! hehe
 

The restaurant was situated at this small little alley
at the corner.
but the queue was crazy.
the crowd was crazy for a wednesday night.
the number of people going in and going out of the restaurant was just madness.
and if you don’t book.
you can’t get a table unless you have all your people there with you.
that’s how packed they are!

it’s a pity i didn’t get to take the photo of the food.
i will the next time i go back with Baby.
cause too many people at the table.
was shy to stop them from eating just to snap the photos.
but the food was really good.
i swear! haha

okie. so before going into the restaurant.
baby and I witness the amount of dried chilli the food will have.

the supplier came with this HUGE bag of dried chilli
that made jaw drop! haha.
and for your information.
it’s not just one bag.
it was TWO! hahaha

haha. yes. with tonnes of chinese cooking wine!
it was just scary.
but looking at the food
(which i promise i will show u the next time i go there)
im not surprised at why they need so much chilli! haha

okie. so yes. after the awesome dinner.
i went home to finish the long-due essay
(overdue cause i was hoping to finish this yesterday!)
but yes. im glad one is down
and tomorrow will be :

research and reading day!

which by the way
i can’t believe i actually named the day. but yes.
just keeps my aim in mind.
so hopefully i can get the last one done and enjoy the weekend before uni starts!

*fingers crossed*

for now.
slumber land.

 

happy 23rd! ♥
