The winds are changing, cause this is how I like to spend my weekends now: cooking. Although I rarely get to do this, I find it to be like a therapy. To gather people around, get some groceries done cause I love some couple-bonding time at the grocery store, and head home with a bunch of people and share some stories or gossips while waiting for food to be served.
I guess that's why I can't wait for my new place to be done, so I can host some weekend brunch or dinner with my family and friends. Even having a BBQ now needs a special occasion which I totally do not get, cause BBQs are meant for weekends, without any special reason to it.
Why would you need a good excuse to have good food?
Stewart's Key Lime and Orange Cream soda are must tries! Tastes like melted Solero and can be bought from these Ang moh supermarkets. If not, you can always order it at The Bee.
My mashed potatoes are pretty simple - sea salt, crushed pepper, butter, milk and some herbs. Add chopped BEEF OR TURKEY bacon or chopped dried salmon for a bit of flavor.
My steak is pretty simple too! The only steak with sauce or heavy marinade I eat would be the one at Jake's Damansara - the super awesome spare ribs. Other than that, I like my meat to taste meaty. So I only thaw, season them with sea salt, crushed ground pepper and dried rosemary and chuck them on a pan right after. It'll be similar to the one you get at Las Vacas. Have yet to try cooking a Wagyu on my own.
We went to KL just to get this apple strudel that point8cam have been raving about ALL the time, cause apparently it's similar (or the same thing) as the famous one from Perth. It's not as fresh as I'd like it to be, but it's definitely good and perfectly balanced in terms of sweetness. I'm not a sweet tooth so this was just ace.
How do you usually spend your weekends?
