Mmmm...when it comes to food, I am number 1 :p I have great appetite for new recipes and I will be wanting to try out new dishes....my kitchen is my paradise next is my small garden :) I love the scent of flowers and the natural scent of the kitchen where baking and cooking takes place. When baking bread, the whole kitchen smells of freshly baked bread...oh it is heavenly ! But when pan frying meat or any seafood, the kitchen has a mixture of odour, delicious smell of fried meat and fried oil. To some it is heavenly but to my hubby WB, the enjoys the food but not the odour of fried oil :)
Did I mention in any of my post that WB loves heavenly scented candles ? He collects scented candles and has a great collection of different fragrances. And when lit are known for enchancing your sense of well being. And he has a collection of decorative jar candles too :) Shhhh... I think I will get him some nice air freshener this Christmas to add to his collection of scented candles :p He never fails to burn one when we are seated having our dinner :) The candle fragrance and light work together to create an enchancing atmosphere that relaxes my tired muscles and as the candle burns, the fragrance is complemented by a warm and tranquil glows that gives a romantic mood...LOL! WB is such a romantic Wild Boar !
Sorry.. again I have digress...now back to my this dish . I have been trying out new recipes for the coming Christmas dinner and I thought for a change lets have something different this year. How about this Red Glutinous Rice Wine Chicken Roll ??? My gardener friend gave me a bottle of homemade red glutinous rice wine :) So super happy ! She is good in making rice wine and she has a generous spirit. She gave each of the community gardeners a bottle of her homemade rice wine. Thus, I could not wait to try her red rice wine :). I deboned chicken drummets and marinade them in the homemade glutinous rice wine and ginger shreds with a tsp of sugar and salt. I marinated them for a few hours in the fridge. It is not hard to prepare this dish though it may takes a few hours to marinade the meat. The result is finger licking good tasty chicken roll. Dont know what to cook for Christmas...you may like a fusion meal....:)
