Kitchen Chronicles during my absence.

>> Jun 7, 2012

Hey guys!! 
 I missed you, and blogging, i sure hope you missed me too. Its been a whole 16 days!, i have never been away for so long, but i'm here to make it up to you ;). What happened? well, I was entertaining members of my family over the past 2 weeks. They also happen to have traveled from far and wide, it was an important time or period in my life (I graduated!)... thank you, thank you :). I hope you all have been great; and to where it applies happy memorial day in arrears :). Regardless of things, we still have to eat right? so here's a toast to my kitchen chronicles during this period of absence. 

so sit back, relax and Enjoy.

Day 1: 3 people dining
Sese Plantains: This is a typical Cameroonian dish, made with unripe or semi ripe plantains. Mine are unripe, made with cow skin and smoked fish. Its a really easy process, but i'd like to blog the recipe when i make the dish on its own.
Fresh garden veggies stir fry with chicken breast: These days, i feel like i cannot make a meal without a side of veggies, that must be a good thing.
Aged chicken: Its almost like a delicacy, its sold in the Asian super market where i live. This plate is steamed in spices and over broiled on a tray to reduce excess fat. Its really tasty and healthy, and the spicier the better. ;)
Tomato pepper sauce: Spicy enough to be a pepper sauce but also not too spicy that it could be used as a sauce to go with the rice. the green leaf is a bay leaf. ;)
The rice: The stock from the steamed chicken was used to boil the rice so it could be eaten as is.







The Desert: A parfait; freshly baked vanilla cake chopped, fresh strawberries chopped and pure vanilla bean ice cream (store bought). I layered it as in the picture, 2 layers per goodies. I then set it to cool in the fridge... The cake ends up being moist with ice cream and the strawberries.. don't even get me started... yum yum yum.





Day 3: 4 people dining- Late night After a busy day
Sauteed Green beans: My sister made these, parboiled and sauteed in onions, soy, garlic, salt and black pepper. just enough crunch left... yummy.
Baked potatoes: Par boiled potatoes, rubbed in table butter and sour cream and then baked, easy and healthier than frying. Also, a little tip, if you want them out of the oven with the crispy crust as though they were fried, skip the sour cream. :)
Aged chicken: Its almost like a delicacy, its sold in the Asian super market where i live. This plate is steamed in spices and over broiled on a tray to reduce excess fat. Its really tasty and healthy, and the spicier the better. ;) Same as above! hehe
Tomato pepper sauceSpicy enough to be a pepper sauce but also not too spicy that it could be used as a sauce to go with the rice. the green leaf is a bay leaf. ;). Same one as above!
The rice: Plain white rice, my mom has a thing for plain rice :)








 My Plate :)
