Cheesy Fries

I made this yesterday for the boyz at home. Seen it at Nur's house (My Little Kitchen) few days ago and so happened I had some left over cheddar cheese in the fridge. I didn't bother to measure according to the recipe but turned-out alright. Nur used orange color cheddar cheese which turned-up more attractive than mine - see here for her version.

Here how I made my cheese dip:
1/4 block cheddar cheese (about 60g) - shredded
Fresh Milk - just enough to cover the shredded cheese
Some Mustard Powder
Some Paprika Powder

1. Place all ingredients in a saucepan & stir until cheese melts.
2. Pour on top of potato fries (I bought frozen fries & deep fried).
3. Piped some mayonnaise on top.

Ukak (Sarawak Durian)

 Ukak is a type of Durian found in Sarawak. The main distinction to typical Durian from Peninsular is that its vivid orange flesh firm to touch, smaller size and it has hair around the stem. The taste is almost similar to typical durian with its infamous stench. Now is durian season in Sarawak & manage to fetch some Ukak on the way home from my hubby's kampung.

I've Been Busy

Much apology to all of you for disappearing for quite sometime. Fortunately my little one manages to keep you entertained in my absence. There are too many excuses really - wedding, khenduri, visitors, office works, etc, etcs activities and of course my small and big babies at home to take care of. Anyway, am not complaining & I should feel lucky that my life is not boring although can be exhausted at times with little or no rest (not even at night!). Many friends said I look slimmer now... thanks to my baby & busy life! hehehe...

I will come back with more recipes when time permits, till then enjoy & take care...! Mmmmuah! Miss all of you!

Here sharing one of my recent activities in facilitating Patchwork & Quilting workshop voluntarily in Miri recently. It has been much success and I enjoyed it very much. More story here.
