29 years being together !!!! Wow ! another year we would have reach 30 years of being wedded to each other. Hopefully when the day come we are still together :p Of course, to spice up a marriage.. good homecooked food is one of the ingredients to stay happily married ...LOL! Just kidding, lots of understanding and being able to accept each other weaknesses is the most important ingredients in a marriage :) And to celebrate our 29th wedding anniversary yesterday, I whipped out something simple and yet delicious for Wild Boar and myself. Baked a fluted loaf using Peter Reinhart's bread book and at the same time baked a heart shaped bread for WB to eat with the anniversary dinner. It was a good meal and we are cute ...aren't we ? Hahaha...Elin is one crazy romantic person ! Happy 29th anniversary to Wild Boar...thanks for making our marriage life a good one by being there for the family at all times. I am sure your Piggies are thankful they have been given a wonderful Dad !
Take a peek to see what I cooked for WB for our anniversary dinner :) Yea.....something flavorful and scrumptious yet simple to prepare . We ate like we were so deprived of a good meal :p " oinking away...............
I bought the deboned chicken legs from the wet market...a pair for RM8 ...cheap since it was already deboned , took home marinaded them with just 2 tsp of light soy sauce and thick soy sauce and a dash of ground white pepper . Wrapped them in cling wrap and leave them to rest in the fridge until time to cook them. Meanwhile boiled the russet potatoes, one each and after which , roasted them with mixed herb and cayenne pepper and olive oil in the oven for 30 mins till aromatic.
Blanched the broccoli florets in salt water and drained them dry. Arranged them on serving plate. Stacked the roasted potatoes on the broccoli. Meanwhile, heat a non stick pan and stiry fry the fresh brown button mushroom slices with red onion rings . Sprinkle some mixed herbs on them, a dash of ground black pepper and before dishing up add in red wine vinegar , red wine and balsamic onto the mushrooms. Dish up and stacked them on the roasted potatoes.
Pan seared the marinated chicken leg until cooked, add in the marinade sauce which comprises of oyster sauce, black pepper, red wine and honey when about to dish up. Place the cooked chicken leg over the bed of goodness - mushrooms and roasted potatoes and broccoli. Serve with a bowl of hot steaming radish soup and freshly baked heart shaped bread. A wonderful homecooked meal for the two of us. And finished with a dessert...guess what ? Yea the forbidden fruit - Durians ( the King Fruit of Malaysia ) !!!! at least it a forbidden fruit for me ! But took the excuse it was our anniversary ...so a toast with this forbidden fruit :)
