CMCO Day 158 ~ Saturday, 14 November 2020 (Homemade Chicken and Pork Roulade with Ajvar)

We’re happy guinea pigs again today 😁. Our teenage chef tried  two new recipes for lunch – chicken and pork roulade and Ajvar (Serbian Roasted Red Bell Pepper Sauce) to go with the roulade.

The stuffing for the chicken and pork roulade is sauteed minced King Trumpet mushrooms with garlic and champagne. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed our specially curated meal for lunch. Sherilyn planned to cook Tonkatsu with Japanese curry again but we got home late after she dropped off a gift to her friend and we ended up having KFC for dinner.  Our KFC meal was bought using vouchers that Sherilyn won in an online English quiz organized by Yayasan Johor Corporation recently.

Ajvar (Serbian Roasted Red Bell Pepper Sauce) with a nice smokey flavor to go with the roulade.  Our chef roasted the bell peppers on a non-stick pan over the stove before blitzing them.

Sauteed minced King Trumpet mushrooms with garlic and champagne as filling for the roulade.

It’s not easy to capture picture perfect photos of food.  The most important thing is natural lighting (not too bright or dim) and the only place I can get clear photos is at our balcony, at certain angles and at certain timing of the day. And for this, I need the girls to help me.

Today I discovered another talent of mine — I can do a pretty good job as a hair dresser! I managed to cut my super persnickety Cass’ hair. She has been bugging me to allow her to cut her hair herself (she doesn’t like to go to the hair dresser) and I told her that I will do it for her instead.  It’s my second time cutting Cass’ thick, frizzy and curly hair. I think it’s pretty easy and it took me less than 20 minutes to chop off about 20cm of her precious locks.  This time, Cass is super pleased with the outcome  😁.  While I was cutting Cass’ hair outside our unit, our Japanese neighbor came out, saw what I was doing and told me that today his wife cut their two sons’ hair too.  We mothers are multi-taskers and multi-talented 😊
