NCIS

Ever since the AFC channel changed my favorite cooking program between 5pm to 6pm, I accidently found a channel showing NCIS..


and since then I'm hooked on d series.





(source : YouTube)


so most days now after work, I'd tuned in to watch it

..and my favorite character is Abby!





(source : YouTube)


In a way, its good that I don't watch the cooking program too much, as I would normally end up in the kitchen, cooking..



and burst my diet..haha..


But last night, I tried to make some oat cookies..and as usual, didn't really follow the recipe, and the first batch of the cookies turned up like this :



[Bit soft and "fragile" ~ easily broken into small pieces :-)]


So before baking the second batch, I added one egg (that was not mentioned in the recipe), and it turned out better, thou burnt a little bit (too long in the oven)..hehehe..





Third batch...n much better (I think!)






Now I need to figure out how to make it more crunchy..

Went out early this morning for the committee meeting, after not attending the last few times..


I actually have not been keen on attending meetings, but had no excuse this time as it was held at the same place as the inter-alumni bowling..haha..





but it was fun..so I might go next meeting, when its convenient. :-)


anyway, getting together with d rest of the "sisters" for this event was great, one of our teams got third placing...and the supporters?


Best Cheer Leaders!..hehe..

and I'm having a sore throat now!

Friends are for...

I like it, I like it..




Met some friends for lunch today..n one friend that I had not seen for few years said that I looked "slimmer"..and she was backed by another friend that had just seen me a couple of weeks ago...


yippieeee!!!!!!!



..so now I don't feel so guilty making the cakes again this morning


:-)




That's what friends are for!...hehehe


*********************


Meanwhile, my 11 year-old niece, Faraheen has been in Kelantan since yesterday for a taekwondo competition and this morning her mum sent me a message to say that she was going to fight with an opponent from Thailand.





By noon, I was told that she was crying for getting a bronze medal..

....just because there were only 3 girls in her category and in a way she was last..

"It doesn't matter Kak F, Alhamdulillah that you are ok and you are strong enough to enter this competition. We are proud of you!"

A simple recipe..

Can't help but back to food entry again...hehehe..

Last week I came across this very simple recipe in the newspaper,



n being in the "chef mood", I gave it a try..

and here's d result...






I was quite surprised and excited that this newspaper's recipe worked!


So this morning, I took out the 2 basic ingredients needed,
(thou after d first try, I added 3 more to it, hehe..),

and after about 10 minutes..they were ready to be baked









..into the oven for 20 mins at 180'C,

...and here's d outcome..






And the ingredients?

1) Self-raising Flour




2) Ice cream




and that's it!




A ~ 6 tablespoon of vanilla ice-cream,
and 6 tablespoon of self-raising flour

(for this version I added bits of cashew nuts,
cherries and 1 tablespoon of condensed milk)






B ~ 6 tablespoon of strawberry ice-cream,
6 tablespoon of self-raising flour.

(again, I added bits of cashew nuts,
cherries and 1 tablespoon of condensed milk)






simple... anyone can do it,





that is, if one have access to the kitchen..haha..

n when I thot...

"...I thought I was happy all this time
But I was obviously blind.
I am now a lost sheep in the dark
Who is constantly searching for the light...."

Time for dessert... :-)

Have been finalising the work for coming audit and finished the draft for approval by noon..

..what better way to celebrate
then having a special dessert..


Bubur kacang hijau (or green mung bean porridge) with durians!





We actually made it using a small slow cooker in our pantry,




and someone was kind enough to go and buy for us the durians from a nearby mall..hehe..


(yummmmy....3 packets for RM10..hehe..)


...we had that with crackers n bread, a dessert before lunch, haha! Our department boss was supporting enough to join us (he especially loved that durians!..hehe..)


I didnt take any lunch after that...trying to cut down..

The last few days, having more of green apples and yogurt..







By d way, we have taken down from our board the world cup schedule that our boss gave, therefore ended the task of one staff in updating it ~ and she didnt even watch the games (but love the octopus thing)!..haha..




So to everyone (especially to Nensa and ps, who now know more on football?) till d next event..hope u all have enjoyed the World Cup this time round!




hehe
