Kenny and KK came over yesterday to watch the Olympic men's singles badminton finals as it was Malaysian Lee Chong Wei against Chinese Lin Dan. Lee didn't perform very well and got trashed.
Despite all that disappointment, we had a great time eating, as usual. We watched badminton after stuffing ourselves with fried chicken, hot wings and fries from KFC. Kenny then made Strawberries and Cream for tea. Very yummy and satisfying dessert for tea. My only comment about it is that it needs to be chilled more. It is basically made up of strawberry coulis, whipped double cream and crème patissière which involves milk, double cream, plain flour, corn flour, egg yolks and caster sugar. He then served it with coursely crushed biscuits and a scoop of cornish cream ice-cream - umm....
Strawberries and Cream
Football was up next - Man Utd vs Newcastle. Not a fan of football so Jade and I kept ourselves busy in the kitchen while the guys enjoy football. Jade prepared Mango Lassi, as requested by Kenny. It is a delicious Indian yougurt drink, very refreshing especially after eating spicy Indian food. She made hers with fresh mangoes, natural yougurt, milk, mango juice and sugar. While Jade was measuring all ingredients according to the recipe, KK appeared all of a sudden and just dunk everything he could see on the countertop into the blender. Turned out quite good actually.
We had prawn noodles for dinner after football. It is from an instant stock paste pack - the best instant prawn noodle stock paste I've ever tasted. I served it with egg noodles, hard boiled egg, boiled pork, prawns and beansprouts. I added less water as stated on the packaging to make it more concentrated. Added concentrate tomato paste and garlic to add flavour.
