yes....my hubby is still mengidam...and I'm going to meletop earliest in 8 weeks time...this time it's vol au vent and meringue that were constantly in his mind!
Since I have been super busy, finishing work in the office, my editing (yes, already sent the final draft and waiting for another project to be done before I meletop) and baking which usually starts on Thursday....I told hubby he has to find his way with his mengidamness...ie dia kena buat sendirilah! Of course, I tolonglah...leter, ha ha....habis! He wants a short cut way....cannotlah when you are baking!!!
And Ib wants a birthday do......on top of all those.....mak bapak dia follow rentak budak athmatic ni, very sensitive, his last name is merajuk, so we decided to have a small do of makan-makan, to please Ib and hubby...and excuse for all of us to makannnnn!!
Since it was in the nick of time punya planning, we had very close friends whose average number of children (except for very very few) was 3 and maximum of 6, to come and join the party.....the house was full of children, even though there were not 15 couples, ha ha.....now, you know why we are also waiting for number 6!!
I made the cakes (of course!), profiteroles, chicken curry with roti jala (roti jala I ordered from Kak Jee), my brother Mus who works with KL Convention Centre's kitchen prepared tuna and egg sandwiches and did the filling for hubby's vol au vent, I also made bruschetta, baked macaroni...the fried mee hoon was from the kind help of SW's maid, my maid fried the nuggets, boiled the cocktail sausages, of course hubby prepared earlier his meringue using Nigella's Domestic Goddess recipe and the vol au vent casing......
All went well, special thanks to pak doktor Jab tolong buat pinata for the kids, he didn't sleep until 6 that day to finish his work...ah well, he's a nocturnal anyway!!And thanks to all who came to help to make the small do a merry day for all of us!!
