牛肉盖饭&绿茶草莓蛋糕卷(Gyu-don & Matcha Strawberry swiss roll)


收到Lydia的食谱这么久都没有介绍这本好书很是惭愧。
尝试做了里面的几个食谱觉得简单又好吃。
是很适合我的一本书。
尤其那个溏心蛋就做了几回。
我也很喜欢他的铁板烧饼,可惜我最近忙透了,没能一个一个的上食谱。
今天就上个简单但很好吃的牛肉盖饭和绿茶草莓蛋糕卷吧!
说到这个蛋糕卷,我已经做了3次却没有上过一次食谱。
照片也拍了3次,说起来有点对不起这个蛋糕。
其实最近很努力做全蛋式和分蛋式蛋糕卷,因为一直都觉得蛋糕组织做得不够细腻。
努力是肯定有回报的。
最近的全蛋海绵蛋糕和分蛋式的都做得还不赖。
希望你们也喜欢。

马铃薯背根面包 (Bacon & Potato Bread)

今天一早载孩子上学时,被交警截停,做酒精检举。
这还是我第一次做这测验。
我是良好市民和安全道路使用者,所以平安过关。
之后,觉得很好奇,就对孩子说,哎呀!那个警察一看我的脸,就应该知道我是不可能七早八早喝酒的吗,做么还要叫我吹叻?
儿子:妈咪,你做完test时,有没有检查答案的?
我:??有啦!做么这样问?
儿子:你是不是要double confirm你的答案对,所以检查?
我:对
儿子:所以咯,那个警察他可能也是认为你没有喝酒驾驶,但是为了不出任何差错,所以就叫你吹咯。这样就肯定100%没有出错了。
我:哦。。听起来好像有道理。
只是,我不能理解他为什么会用考试检查答案的比喻来解答我的问题。
为什么他不要直接答我,而要问我先,才答我呐?
有时还真的很不明白他脑瓜子里的东西。
往往提出的问题和解答的方式都是我很陌生的。
看来他不是很了解他妈妈的反应是有点迟钝的。

很久没有上面包了。
今天就上这个好吃的马铃薯背根面包。
希望你和我一样喜欢它。

香兰糯米糕&椰浆饭 (Pandan Seri Muka & Nasi Lemak Kampung)

咦。。? 那天要做这个pandan seri muka 时,竟然发现自己没有上过香兰版本。
这真的是有点意外,因为我好像不可能没有上过这个糕的。
也好,反正最近在Sherleen家才看到这食谱,就直接进去她家取食谱好了。
省得麻烦又要去翻我那本厚厚的file。
嗯,这个食谱很好做,也很好吃。
不过为了省一点我家的煤气钱,我把香兰面糊用小火煮一煮至稍微浓稠,才去蒸。
这样可以缩短一点蒸的时间。
还有就是那个糯米就用气压锅,10分钟搞定。
上次用气压锅蒸糯米时,不懂得拿捏时间,结果太熟了,很粘。
还好那时是做糯米鸡,没有这么糟糕。
第一次听我女儿说,这个糕很好吃。
安心。。。孩子们不太会欣赏粘粘软软的糕点,所以每次做都要请别人帮我吃,很可怜。
这下好了,6寸的糕,有希望自家解决了。
