It has been quite sometimes I put pictures of foods I’ve tried. Sometimes the end result not that beautiful to be shown here. But actually most of the times nowadays I don’t really take picture of foods anymore like before. Because I’m busy taking pictures of my baby. Now I have over 4000 pictures of him because I take his pictures everyday. I’ve missed 1 or 2 days if I’m not mistaken and only remembered to take his picture of the day past midnight. Now I’m in the middle of choosing which pictures to be printed and believe me it’s a crucial job indeed! Because I feel like each picture is very important and holds significant memory. Seems like I need long time before finally come up with final album then.
Anyway, last week I made Doria. A kind of baked rice mixed with white sauce and filling and finally topped with cheese. I first tried this when we went to Murni’s house in Yokohama. Hubby liked it. However since we don’t have suitable gratin plates so I needed to put the recipe on hold. I thought there’s a Nitori near here in Komagane. But turned it it’s actually Komeri a DIY shop. But then luckily during our previous Nagoya trip, we managed to stop by Nitori and got set of gratin plates and bowls each. Sigh… nk mkn pun susah! By the way, I got the recipe from here! But I that’s Macaroni Gratin so in order to make Doria you change it with rice. Thanks Murni for the lovely recipe. We like it and for sure gonna make it again soon 🙂
For the second recipe, I also baked Banana Chocolate Muffin last week since hubby told me that the obasans told him they wanted to visit the baby since they were coming here to do works at the syatakus behind. On that particular day I did realize they came and were busy doing their job. So I just waited for them to knock on my door as usual. I thought might be they would come after they were done with their job just like before. But they didn’t come at all. Hubby said that might be they expected me to come out? But I thought I wouldn’t want to interrupt them while working or anything. In fact I could invite them inside if they come and we could have a nice chat over tea. Anyway somehow… I enjoyed finishing up the muffins though 🙂 Hubby said it tastes ordinary. But I liked it because it tastes chocolatey and soft. The most important part is it’s easy and fast to make 😉 I always love easy recipes by the way. I got the recipe from here! Actually I’ve tried another version of this muffin but it uses melted chocolate instead of using chocolate powder. I prefer the latter obviously because less the hassles 😛
I prone to bake muffins or cakes or make other kind of sweetmeats more nowadays except for anything with dough. Actually I love breads and kinda miss baking them but unfortunately the dough shaping work by bare hands surely will make my hands over-dried and cracked. That’s hurtful. I wonder when my hands gonna be fully recovered from this weird illness. But fortunately it’s getting warmer and my hands seems better then during winter. So usually I only make loaf bread at least once a week because it fully uses the bread maker until the loaf is done. At least, I still get to eat bread 🙂
