Sun dried Tomatoes Chopped and mixed into the dough. Results are a rather orange bread roll.

Snip for some ears, press some Olive quarters for eyes and a black gel icing pen made the mouth.

Served with a strawberry, a mix root vegetable puree with roast zucchini elephant. the other side was roast beetroot leftovers from my heart cutting session.

Actually this is a good option for bento option if you're sick of rice. The puree can be spread onto the bread rolls and eaten.

Wow! This was easier than I thought!

Marinade the meat, (cheap cut - pork neck) in a mix of sugar, salt, soy, sesame oil, coriander, star aniseed, five spice powder then baste with Hoi Sin and honey. Bake at 200 for 20mins.

Bingo Bango. Barbeque Pork!

Now before you put this is the too hard to do bucket, compare the price:

$7.99/kg vs $25.80/kg.

Let your happy wallet decide :)

Home Made Pasta, Anti-Masterchef

Steph had the urge to make fresh pasta! Let no one disuade him! It was delicious! And contrary to belief, it was not Masterchef inspired.

In fact our household is MC Free. Both of us can't stand watching the show. Steph because he use to cook commercially for a living, and I can't stand those rah rah statements and the over play with food, and all the branding! Ugh.

I suppose I should think about a cooking show I would like to watch regularly... I use to like Consuming Passions on ABC and the 41 garlic clove chicken... Oh! and remember Peter Russell-Clarke? Haha! I only remember the jingle... can't think of what he cooked. :) I shall ponder some more.

Sewing Project: 2 Zipper Purse

I finally bought a sewing Machine :) Hooray!

Admittedly it was over a month ago, I'm glad to say that all the Home Ec classes from Grade 5 are coming back to me :). I've made a few bits and pieces, but now I'm venturing out to blog about it...
This is my first :) Its a 2 zipper purse. You have one zippered side for money notes and cards you use frequently, then you can turn it over the other zip goes around the corner, so it opens easiliy for you to view the other cards, coins, and in my case a little notepad.

I got the idea from my original purse which I bought in Vietnam. I stupidly chose a white one, and after 6 months of constant use its now a dirty brown white (ick! )

Its not perfect, the stitching is shocking and would turn any fancy mum's hair white with horror. BUT its mine, it works, its my choice of colour and size, and I promise to make more for practice.
