What’s for dinner? #5

March 22nd, 2015

Dear Chibi,

Welcome to Chibi’s 5th episode of ‘What’s for dinner?’ I’m sure these posts are soooo interesting for you, since you never get to eat any of it… *cough* XD Just kidding. Maybe one day if you’re over, I’ll cook you lunch or dinner :3

Dish #17 Roasted Potatoes, mushroom & veggies

roasted-potatoes

A simple roast dish with sweet potatoes and lots of herbs!

Dish #18 Lamb Shanks with Rosemary & Thyme

lamb-shanks

Slow cooked over 3 hours! The lamb just fell off the bones *_* So delicious.

Dish #19 Chicken and Corn Soup

chicken-corn-soup

Simple and yummy! One of my favourite soups so had to learn to make this!

Dish #20 Pie with Mashed Potato and Mushrooms

mushroom-pie

I’m not sure this is counted as a “dish” since I didn’t make the pie myself! haha. It’s a frozen cheese and chunky beef pie, which I oven baked with mushroom and garlic, topped with mashed potato!

Dish #21 “Best Burger”

beef-burger

Not sure this is the “best” burger, but that was what they called it in the recipe, hahahah XD Hubby loves his burgers, so I made this on a Friday night :3 We end up having burgers for that entire weekend! The beef patty was made out of beef mince, breadcrumbs, egg, nutmeg and onions.

Dish #22 Honey Baked Pumpkin Risotto

honey-roasted

A sweet variation of the risotto :3

Dish #23 Thai-flavoured Chicken Mince with Rice

beef-mince-thai-rice

So yummmy and simple to make :D Another go-to dish for a quick dinner meal :D Very flavorful.

The last gig

March 22nd, 2015

Dear Chibi,

Last night I went to see my friend Sarah’s band play at the Spectrum in Darlinghurst. It was her band “The Sculptures” last gig, so I definitely had to check it out. Robbie, Sompies, Dong and I met up earlier for dinner at Ramen Zundo, before indulging in this delicious honey butter bread and chai latte. mmmm~~~

thesculptureslastgig

I had a really enjoyable night. The songs were great~ very catchy :D Actually, I’m listening to their CD at this very moment, teeehee!

 

A day at the Hunter Valley

February 22nd, 2015

Dear Chibi,

Yesterday I spent the day at the Hunter Valley with my family and a few overseas relatives. Unfortunately Hubby had to work this weekend, so he missed out on a day of silly selfies… (or maybe he was spared XD) When I think of Hunter Valley, I think of wine and vineyards. I’m not much of a wine person myself, so I didn’t expect too much from the day. However, we spent a large chunk of it at the Hunter Valley Gardens, which was a lot of good fun. I loved the “Storybook Garden” the most :3

Dinner @ Balkan and Dessert at RivaReno Gelato

My Usagi Blanket :D

February 8th, 2015

Dear Chibi,

Sometime last month, I received my very own Usagi blanket~ yaaaaay! It’s basically the same blanket the character Usagi (Sailor Moon) uses in the 90s anime series ^^ (In Sailor Moon Crystal, the pattern is slightly different though still bunnies and moons)  I’ve had this item on my wishlist for a long time, and my bro finally got it for me for xmas, woo!!

usagi-sailormoon-blanket

The blanket is an unofficial merch from lookhuman.com. It’s soft, furry and thin. I love it so much but it’s also quite expensive (this one was $60).

I’M JUST SO IN LOVE WITH IT 8D

Dear Chibi,

Wow, this list is growing :D! I want to keep cooking more and more variety. So far it’s been a really fun and rewarding experience :)

Dish #10 Pork and Sweet Potato Green Curry

pork-sweet-potato-curry

I’ve made this dish a couple of times now, and once for my family (a chicken variation) :D

It’s a pretty easy go-to dish, though I’m still experimenting with the amount of coconut milk and curry paste to use!

Dish #11 Steak with Creamy Mushroom Sauce

steak-mushroom

Not really a new dish… but a new sauce!

Dish #12 Raspberry, White Chocolate and Macadamia Muffins

white-chocolate-muffins

My favourite muffin recipe :3 I first made this a couple of years ago and recently again for the cofa guys during our house warming :)

Dear Chibi,

Dish #8 Pumpkin & Chicken Risotto

chicken-pumpin-risotto

This pumpkin and parmesan cheese combo is godly. Really yummy stuff and super flavorful! I followed this recipe but switched out the basil for oregano instead. Served some prawns as an entree.

Dish #9 & 10 Potato & Leek Soup and Barramundi

potato-leek-soup-fish

I followed the same recipe as I did last time for the delicious potato and leek soup :D This time around I made my own croutons to go with it. Hubby gives it a thumbs up!
