After a month break in July, our cook-out was back with a bang and more cook-outtees in attendance.
Esther and Rachel were inaugurated into our cook-out and the sisters hosted an ahhh-mazing August session.
Esther prepared kueh pie tee. Not-so-interesting trivia, when I was a kid, I loved popiah but I thought kueh pie tees were weird, like "who would eat them?" weird. Guess I was the weird one.
Zhu made a massive salad with fusilli, arugula, corn, tomatoes and bacon. And it was sooo good! I hope the munchkin saw his mama down her greens like a champ.
Like I said, it was massive. Everything else looked like a hobbit beside it.
Diana brought along some chicken and Ipoh hor fun from 怡保芽菜雞 - hey, if its tasty, it doesn't matter if it ain't homemade.
Esther teaching us how to eat kueh pie tee - watch and learn kids, invaluable life skills in the making.
Marcus and Zee prepared Vietnamese spring rolls which were clean, light and refreshing - the type of food one should be tucking into after a long vacation of mindless indulgence. I didn't manage to get a picture of it as I was holding the munchkin, who had overstayed his visit on the booster seat.
Yang brought along a hodgepodge of desserts consisting of hum chin pengs, butterfly buns and sweet treats from Cake Spade.
The Nutella fudge crumble was incredible. I polished it off
when noone was watching as nobody else seemed to attack it with as much determination.
As if to rescue us from food coma - though not really Rachel whipped up a bittersweet peanut butter chocolate cake that was every bit as glorious as it sounded and looked.
