Piggy Jo came back with the boy , now the fiance :) , to celebrate the dad's birthday. Josh was in UK then , so he missed out the event. Nothing to shout out about...just a simple dinner at Mokuren with the loved ones. Read on to see what we had for his birthday....no birthday cake too coz the ' Sow ' was too lazy to bake the Wild Boar a cake LOL!

Sea Clams for the weekend !!! love this to bits. Saw some big fat ones in the market and who could resist even when the price is RM25 per kg ! Bought half a kilo back and tucked them in without any guilt. Good thing that it is pricey or I will tuck them in everyday and clog up my arteries with them. The price will keep me from over indulging in them ! The price saved my arteries from abuse !

Nando's Hot Peri Peri Seasoning rub is so good for pan fried meat, chicken or pork and it is also best for any roast . This is the last packet that Josh bought for me . I flipped the box to see what is written on the back of the packet , looking hard to see what ingredients is made of the rub.....maybe I can replicate it as near as possible LOL! I am not named the great Copy Cat for nothing okay ! Just kidding ! Seriously , it is good :) This time, I used it to season the chicken breast fillets and instead of roasting it, I tried pan frying it and gosh it was finger licking good ! I used the same method as for roasting...coating it with........................

As a blogger, I think I should do my part to support The Red Cross Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund. I read about this from Chef Dennis's blog and feels that I should help too. My brother stays in New Jersey and he was without power and water supply for a few days. Lucky for him and his family, they only experienced strong winds and power supply cut. I could not get through to him for the past few days. And knowing that they are well and not badly affected, I could not but thank God for keeping them safe . But for those staying near the coastal area, it was sad to state that it was a total wreck to properties and lives. My care and concern for them and this is the only thing I can do to help out. And I am sure you too would like to do your part in helping.
Just grab the badge from any sidebar you see it in, and place it on your website, or copy and paste the image with a link to the American Red Cross Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund. No mentions or any back links please, just display the badge with the link to the American Red Cross Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund and ask your friends to do the same.
Grab the " We Care " button code from Chef Dennis blog..... Thank you for helping out :)

When you have meat eaters in the home, you tend to stock up meat in the freezer. I would normally make beef patties and freeze them , so that whenever I am late home, I can just dump them in the oven and by the time I am out of the bathroom, the patties are ready for Wild Boar to eat with his dinner :p Baked ones are not oily and so much healthier . Less washing too :) Read on to see how I prepared them in advance for rainy days :p
