Chocolate cup with Sweet potato Cream

No idea what will i make for adib’s snack today. But when i look those “forgettable” chocolate. I think i can make something easy.

After Sahur , morning meal time before fasting time, I preparing for breakfast and lunch plus snack. Because today I will come early, morning meeting.

Dark chocolate bars, grated & melted
2 pieces of sweet potato, slice.
1 egg yolk
2 tsp granulated sugar
100ml plain milk

1. Prepare chocolate cups. Melted chocolate and grease at the silicon muffin, or you can use paper cup. But i prefer silicon cup because it easier to release the chocolate after refrigerated.
2. Boil sweet potato until soft and easy to refined.
3. Mix sweet potato , egg yolk, sugar and milk. Bring to boil until not stick on the pan. Let it cold.
4. Pour sweet potato cream with piping bag onto chocolate cup.

And my little helper really enjoying his new cupcake 🙂 He think he made cupcakes, but the simplest one, without baking and He can eat all of those thing include the cup.

Anyway, did you notice the “things” behind the chocolate cup ? The Orange one .  It’s our favorite meal ever 🙂 Orange frozen juice pop. Adib can eat 5-7 pops per day.  Fresh orange only!

And For adib’s school snack, The chocolate cup’s friend are Bread Fritata and Orange slice. Can’t wait to hear his story about this cute meal box and of course about what he’s doing at school & home today. Love you son :*

Happy Fasting!

Entering the holy month for Muslim, Still with the same things to do only We have to do fasting for almost a month to prepare the glory day, The Ramadan day.

First 3 days, adib have school break, so i don’t prepare anything for school 🙂 Just for breakfast and lunch.

And at Thursday, adib get to school, I prepared Squid cooked on Teriyaki sauce and Butter fried rice  with scramble eggs .

For butter fried rice, it’s simple fried rice ever, not like Indonesian fried rice with a lot of spices, this kind of rice only use garlic then fried with butter. Add some scramble eggs , shrimp and grated carrot. Ready for adib’s breakfast 🙂

For school, I take one pieces of squid and filled with Butter fried rice, add some grated mozzarella on top and burn it with blow torch. Cute one!

The next day, I make pancake, but this time, i make 2 version, Vanilla and beet version. For Recipe, you can find on my Favorite pancake entry here . And for beet version, change Half milk with Beet root juice.
