This morning was perfect for my Tom Yum adventure in my kitchen. Sis took Mom to the Sungai Buloh plant nursery, hubby at work, daughter in playschool and I was in my darling kitchen enjoying my private time making Tom Yum Goong. Pure satisfaction! No interruptions, no phone calls, no renovation next door, just blissfully doing my stuffs. Don't get me wrong, I totally enjoy family and friends but sometimes, time set aside just for myself is also very important for my self rejuvenation.
Hubby brought home some fresh berries from Washington last month and I just cannot imagine what to do with them. It will be such a waste to make fruit jam out of them since they are so expensive after our exchange rates. However expensive though, they are still slightly cheaper than those sold in our Supermarts.
Ask me what a clafoutis is 5 months ago, I would have answered you "Uh?" until I was eagerly looking forward to recipes by pastry chef Anna Olson on 'Sugar' during my last trimester, only then I knew what this lovely dessert was all about. The truth is when I was 15kg heavier then my normal self and craving for sugar high, any desserts that need minimum handling will rank highest on my list! CLAFOUTIS is one of them.
