Cheesy “Colourfull” chicken

I Love “I can cook” tv program on Cbeebies. Just like what I & adib were making a few weeks before. Last night, when two of us watching cbeebies, it just the right time when “I can cook” were playing. And it shows about Cheesy chicken, a simple but lovely meal for kids.

Suddenly, in the middle of the show, adib asked me to make it for school’s snack. Since I have all the ingredients, I’m agree with him πŸ™‚ .It’s not our first time making meal after watching the “I can Cook” show, we already made Banana Bread pudding before.

Making alone, because adib not wake up yet, it super duper easy meal. You can make with your kids. When adib wake up, I’ve just start to bake it, and he really happy to see those red 7 green paper.

Cheesy chicken

2 chery tomato, well chopped
2 Pepper (Paprika)
Quater part of Chicken
4 Shirmp
1 clove garlic, well chopped
Salt & pepper
Grated Mozzarella cheese
Grated Cheddar cheese

How to :
1. In a hot boiling water, add Garlic, salt and pepper, stir then add Chicken & shrimp for 5 minutes. Chopped chicken & shrimp, set aside.
2. Cut the Paprika into 2 pieces and leave the seeds aside.
3. Put Tomato inside the paprika, then add salt & pepper. Afterward, add Chicken & shrimp. Then spread over the mozzarella cheese on top of it, add some Cheddar cheese.
4. Bake for 15-20 minutes on 170dC.

For adib’s school snack, as requested. I added Some bake bread stick, and just called him, He said that He Love today’s meal, and He want more with another orange pepper just like what He saw on the show. Next time my son!

While baking the Cheesy chicken, I’m preparing for our lunch, Sweet stir-fried beef for adib, and add some red hot pepper for me πŸ™‚Β  . We called it “Oseng-oseng mercon” or stir-fried beef with chili peppers, when the sauce touch your tongue ,you will fell the sensation of a firework blew out on your mouth. Just prepare some tissue and hot drink πŸ˜€

When the Cheesy chicken all done, I taste it, and it very delicious. Really love a simple food with a great taste! You can use the colourfull Paprika pepper, and your kids will love it!

We’ve got 4 Bramidae fishes after 3 hours fishing πŸ˜€ Yeah! I guess it’s easy to fishing, but….Β  We try to move to other fishing pool, but didn’t get any fish at the second pools, it’s not our lucky days after all, but Alhamdulillah , 4 fishes are enough for us πŸ™‚

Spinach fettucini Carbonara with Salmon Nugget

Kembali ke senin, hari malas sedunia untuk memulai hari, bukan karena semboyan “i hate monday” tapi emang kalo senin itu kayanya males banget akibat kerjaan banyak, kalo dulu belum terima kerjaan ini, senin masih bisa diatasi, tapi sekarang, pengen nangis bombay rasanya πŸ˜€

Tapi, ga bole nyerah, rutinitas wajib tetep harus berjalan, sambil buka laptop ngerjain Kerjaan kantor ya sambil masak juga. Jadi wira-wiri antara dapur dan ruang tengah. Serem kalo bawa laptop ke dapur, takut kena ciprat adonan, kan sayang kalo kotor.

Pagi ini maunya yang simple bikin nugget aja. Lama banget ga bikin nugget.Uda beli ayam giling dari sabtu lalu, eh begitu dibuka dari bungkusnya… Bau banget! Jadi pengen muntah, padahal baru 2 hari dikulkas eh kok basi ya, nasib beli di CF ambas dan sempet masuk bagasi mobil cukup lama, jadi basi deh, untung ayam kampung dan salmon sashiminya ga ikutan basi, masih fresh. Jadi yg salah siapa? CF-nya atau bagasi? Relakan sajalah πŸ™‚

Ganti haluan bahan tapi tetep tujuan yang sama, karena ayam gilingnya terpaksa dibuang, ambil salmon sashimi ayah deh, maaf ya ayah πŸ˜€

Salmon Nugget

200gr salmon (pilih bagian belly/perut)
100gr udang kupas
75ml susu cair
50gr tepung sagu (max 75gr)
2 butir telur
100gr keju parut

2 butir telur
Tepung roti

Cara :
1. Haluskan salmon dan udang, bisa dengan mencincangnya ataupun dengan bantuan food processor atau penggiling daging.
2. Campurkan dalam satu wadah, salmon, udang, susu cair, tepung sagu, telur, garam, gula dan merica, aduk merata. Tambahkan tepung sagu jika dirasa masih cair.
3. Masukkan keju parut dan aduk merata.
4. Siapkan pinggan tahan panas dan olesi dengan minyak tipis, tuang adonan salmon, Kukus selama 20 menit.
5. Cetak kukusan salmon sesuai selera.
6. Kocok asal telur, celupkan cetakan salmon satu persatu kemudian gulingkan pada tepung roti. Lakukan 2x untuk masing-masing cetakan hingga habis.
7. Simpan didalam freezer, keluarkan sesaat sebelumnya dan siap untuk digoreng.

Untuk carbonaranya, aku pake spincah fettucini. Sedangkan saosnya bisa dibuat dengan cara menumis bawang putih cincang dan bawang bombay beserta susu dan keju parut, jangan lupa diberi perasa (garam, lada & gula), masukkan deh pasta yang sudah direbus terlebih dahulu.

Salmon nuggetnya yang nyetak si adib, dia bikin bentuk Mobil, ikan kecil,pinguin, lumba-lumba dan kura-kura,sedangkan aku bikin sisa dari cetakan itu berbentuk bola aja, kan sayang tuh masih sisa banyak dari nugget yang dibentuk. Karena yg pas di box bekal adibΒ  adalah nugget yang aku bikin, jadi yang sempet difoto ya cuma nugget bola yang digoreng aja πŸ™‚

Oh iya, kemaren weekend nih, kan maen ke PI, eh melipir ke EX, si ayah liat cafe-nya Haagen-dazs, minta mampir. Aku? ih.. uda ga demen makan ice cream, traumaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! Adib minta single scoop stoberi, sedangkan ayah yang campuran. Doyan banget mereka berdua.

Kejadian bodohnya bukan karena makan ice cream nya, tapi pas banyar. Aku inget banget punya voucher haagen-dazs, kan sayang tuh ga dipake, eh pas aku kasih ke si mbak di kasir, dia bilang “maaf ibu, vouchernya uda expired per kemaren”. Ih, kok kaya dipentung ni kepala begitu liat tanggalnya “30 april 2011” sedangkan hari itu tanggal 1 may 2011, cuma beda sehari! Dudul banget kan lupanya kalo punya voucher πŸ˜€

Banana bread pudding by Adib

Weekend time!
Seneng banget kalo uda ketemu weekend, ya nasib ibu pekerja, hanya weekend ini bisa bareng masak ma adib πŸ˜€

Menu weekend ini adalah banana bread pudding, akibat malam sebelumnya, pas lagi adib makan malem, sambil nonton acara “i can cook” di Cbeebis, dan langsung dia minta besok paginya untuk dibuatkan menu ini jadi sarapan plus adib yang masak.

Bangun pagi eh kok ya pisang ga ada, langsung deh cap cus ke pasar beli pisang, adib masih tidur. Pas sampe rumah, eh adib uda berendem di kamar mandi, diingetin soal puddingnya, Adib langsung senyum, tanda dia mau. Nungguin adib berendem, aku siapin bahan-bahannya biar nanti gampang pas dia bikinnya.

Banana Bread pudding
by Adib

Bahan-bahan :
Keju parut
Coklat serut
Gula pasir
Pisang uli
Roti tawar
Susu cair

Step 1
Adib mulai mengoles roti dengan mentega secara merata dan bolak-balik. Setelah itu dipotong menjadi bentuk segitiga 8 bagian.

Step 2
Biar loyangnya ga lengket, adib mulai memoles pinggan tahan panas dengan sedikit mentega.

Step 3
Saking seriusnya, adib kuliti pisang dengan ekspersi yang sangat lucu. Setelah dikuliti, potong tipis pisangnya hingga habis.

Step 4
Ini bagian paling kesukaan adib, dia bilangnya “crack the eggs, bunda!”. Pelan-pelan dia ambil telurnya dan dipecahkan dengan bantuan pisau, kemudian diletakkan dalam wadah. Kocok telur sebentar.

Step 5
Dan kocok mengocok pun dimulai, adib mulai memasukkan susu cair perlahan sesuai instruksi-ku (1). Setelah itu, gula pasir (2). Dan diaduk merata, sisihkan. Susun potongan segitiga roti ke dalam pinggan tahan panas (3 & 4). Lihat betapa seriusnya adib πŸ™‚ .Kemudian adib menata potongan pisangnya dan kemudian menaburinya dengan keju parut (5), kemudian coklat serut (6). Terakhir, tutupi bagian atasnya dengan roti kembali dan tuang adonan susu cair hingga penuh didalam pinggan tahan panasnya (7). Biarkan 2 menit hingga meresap, kemudian tuang kembali hingga penuh.

Step 6
Siap untuk dipanggang, 160dC selama 30 menit

Berhubung ga ada meises, jadinya aku pakai coklat serut aja dari bittersweet chocolate yang diparut πŸ™‚ Tapi kita bisa tambahkan dengan isian apapun yang kita suka kok, sultana, kismis, apple, stoberi, apapun yang disuka, tinggal cemplung aja.

Sambil nungguin pudding matang, adib & ayah pun sibuk bikin track thomas, dan begitu matang, mereka langsung minta disiapkan. Ternyata ga hanya baunya yang enak semerbak di dapur, tapi juga nyuuuum!

Makasi adib, uda bantuin bunda siapin sarapan pagi ini πŸ™‚
