My daughters and I are not really into sandwiches. Okay, occassionally, I did serve up the usual Malaysian-style sandwiches fare like sandwich sardines of sandwich telur. You know, the ones that we usually buy from the Kedai Serbaneka at petrol stations.
However, a little imagination can turn a platter of sandwiches into a sensational assortment of unexpected combinations of chicken, eggs, and tomato. Which I accidentally unearthed this morning while preparing breakfast. And the best part is that my daughters and (and later on the man of the house as well when he got home) simply love it.
I called it chicken tomato sandwich. It is rather simple. It only took me 10 minutes to prepare the whole thing up (but then again sandwiches should be ready in the shortest possible time pun kan?)
All I did was to firstly marinate the chicken with salt, white pepper and black pepper. Marinate it for a minute. Then put the chicken in a wok and add in a spoonful of butter. When the chicken turns brownish, add in the onion and tomato (cubed). Stir for another minute and do not forget to add a dash of Lea & Perrins sauce as well (kalau tak de kicap biasa pun boleh). And in no time, sandwiches' filling is done. Then toast the bread (the usual white bread from Gardenia will do but if you are health conscious then the wholemeal it is).
Put the chicken tomato in between two slices of bread and untuk menambah rasa, add in a sunny side up egg as well. Sedap. Sensational.

I did not expect this school holiday to be like this. I was caught up in endless cooking sessions. One after another. From various 'kenduris' to several family gatherings and of course Hari Raya Aidil-Adha. I am truly exhausted. That's the reason for my absence from the blogosphere these past few weeks.
Well I am back! Here are some of the snapshots of what I've been up to ... (the pix were rather poor because we were busy entertaining and enjoying ourselves...)
First stop was a trip to Sitiawan, Perak where my dear Kak Encik (my delightful cousin) is staying and she's planning a kenduri bersunat for her youngest son Hadim. My three girls and I took a bus to Ipoh and then tumpang a ride with my sister to her place. It's not that easy because I have to bring along a big box of cake. (Bapak tak ikut because kena kerja)
Now, the thing with Kak Encik was she wanted a full-blown kenduri like orang kahwin. And the best part was that she wanted to masak sendiri. Verrry exciting. Only problem was there're only herself, my sister Kak and I who would be doing the cooking for more than 200 guests. In addition, she wanted both my sister and I to handle the pelamin, the bunga telur, the cakes and the whole works. Very the mengada-ngada. And she wanted this car-shaped cake. I tell you that it's not really trendy anymore to have such a cake but she was very stubborn. And it's not easy to decorate a cake at her house. Alhamdulillah, everything turned out well. The kenduri was a success. Yeay to the cooks!

Mouth watering, really?
