Weekend Cooking


Monday, August 20, 2007



As mentioned earlier on, I spent the entire weekend cooking. I fiddled with new recipes as well as visited the old favourites.

The new kids on the (chopping) block:

Lahmacun.
Turkish Style Pizza With Ground Beef.
Spicy and flavourful.

Peanut Butter Hummus (left) and Roasted Red Pepper Hummus (right).
Perfect with Turkish bread.


Old favourites:

These two dishes are so beloved in our family, I have the recipes committed to memory.

Soto Ayam.
This is my mum's recipe. It may be Indonesian in origin as it doesn't use tumeric like the Malay version. One of the first dishes I learnt to cook, I can now do it in my sleep.


Beef Satay.
Made from scratch with Hubs in charge of grilling them over the barbecue. We believe in only using charcoal so there was this fanstastic aroma enveloping the patio. I'm sure our next door neighbours got a good whiff too if they'd been out in their backyard.

Oh wow! Your soto ayam and satay look fabulous! Can you share the recipe for your soto ayam??? My hubs loves it and it will be great if I can make it for him. Thanks! :)
 
Ask and ye shall receive! LOL. I hope you and your hubby enjoy the soup.

Thanks again!
