Merdeka day cooking...

First of all would like to wish all Malaysians a very Happy Independence Day! It's a holiday here and that means plenty of cooking for the family...besides the tons of washing and tidying up the house of course. Here are some of the day's meals.....pretty fusion I would say...
Start the lunch off with Nasi Lemak, which is basically rice cooked in coconut milk with some other condiments
Paired with Curried Chicken with potatoes..
Polish off the curry gravy with some Sweet Potatoes Rolls for those who are still hungry...
Next comes dinner...the boys' favorite, what else, but a pizza! The above is the dough all ready for some of their favorite toppings..some herbs were added to the dough this time.

Ken prepared this pizza sauce for the base, he insist home made is best...well, as long as it's not me cooking it, I am fine with it hehe!

Into the oven it went...oh just noticed he forgot the pineapples!

Pineapples or no, it's gone soon enough! Yum! Pizza prepared from scratch! How's that? :D
Great team work, I prepared the dough, Ken prepared the toppings, the rest help with the eating and washing up the dirty dishes:P Pretty fair work no?
