With everyone in the roost up early and trotting out of the home pretty quick this morning, I was left with Kimmie dearest (who took the liberty of keeping me company, forsaking her schoolmates on what was actually her sports day at school) and Benjiboy. When the home is quiet and in its full tranquil state, what better thing to do but... WHIP UP A STORM IN THE KITCHEN!
Lunch was a fuss-free affair (all the better to keep the rare peace). Kim trotted over to the next block to pick up some groceries at our beloved Gek Poh Shopping Centre.
Our plan: to whip up quick bites making use of whatever she picked.
The challenge: hoping that Kim would remain as sane as possible and not go on a sweet candy rampage.
Her choice picks: potatoes, pumpkins, coriander.
You gotta trust Kim with Western dishes, she's got a natural flair! (Hmm... time for Homemaker Training 101???)
Seasoned and popped in the oven!
Love this bit. Best thing about an oven is the way the aroma of the fooooood just fills the whole home. I love it when freshly-baked bread or scones or cakes or savoury snacks like these are baking or sizzling slowly as I sip at a lil coffee on the sofa (which, by the way, i reupholstered, completely DIY and minimum fuss)!
And in line with eating healthy and general well-being...
My fish friends were treated to some fresh basil and dil to nibble at - fresh from my lil herb patch! Those fish sure have it good!
Swimmingly (to borrow Mel's word),
