BRUNCH

When WAN JIE smsd to confirm she and Wan Put were coming, Wan was so excited and hurried into the kitchen ...getting prepared for these special visitors.
She thought boiled sweet potato would suit this branch menu.  It could be steamed, eaten with or without jacket.  We finished the whole lot anyway.  It provides vitamins and good for digestion.   Carrots were left eaten and added raw into the pasta sauce.  It tastes better then getting them all soaked in there.
The amber colored round serving dish was bought in England, before Mama was born, 28 years ago...Oval platter for sweet potato was a house warming gift from my younger sister, Noriati.
Wan was seen preparing the pasta sauce, boiling pasta, drained them and set aside.  It was very Malaysian-Italian, a bit more chilly and more minced beef.  To soothe the hot taste, Wan cut up small cubes of yellow and red capsicum and pineapple.

The rounded serving bowl was a wedding gift for Mama.

 
Pasta in this bowl was sufficient for three people... this pineapple...very sweet and juicy was supposed to be the desert.  The lot was finished.  It was a well worth prepared brunch for old time friends.
The oval shaped bowl is a heavy stone wear bought in England when Mama was little.  The green plate was bought by Mama ... an only two piece tea set.

Our children, they all love spaghetti, pasta and cheese. I don't. Perhaps that is what I call "they have been US trained".

Diyana is busy cooking now that she is at home with us. In fact all of my children, minus Syafiq are here with us.

Syazwan is also busy preparing ice blended drinks..plus Oreo biscuits...

Sweet potatoes are one of my favorite foods. I love to bake them in the skin and then mash them and add butter and a little brown sugar....yummy!

Laura said...

Yes, you can copy it. :) Have a great day!

Wan Jie said...

Well...that was indeed a very good lunch. Mucho gracias!! And my, my..lama sungguh that amber colored bowls rupanya eh? Too bad..the 'echepant' dah tak de ek? Otherwise AH cld hv it now.

Yes, Laura... we did have a feast but not quite so... By Malaysian standard.. more dishes added to pass the "standard feast" test...hahahaha.

Normally weddings served by buffet-style suits this "feast" description. Different foods would then be served in different kiosks and they are normally plentiful. If you have such tummy to tuck them all up... I could assure you would get tummy ache once you get home.

JEN & JIE, Yes the serving pieces dated back some years ago... those are the ones we managed to salvage.

Ginnie, your sweet potatoes sounds dellllicious! I must try it.

JIE, The Echipen... it was with us since the year 1981... then just a couple of years back ( 3 years ago) we gather them all and sent to the pediatric ward in University Hospital for the children to play. Echipen finally found new play mates and sure, it was for some humanitarian course!

Among those sent there was Zaza's huge brilliant white teddy bought in Berlin in 1991, Echipen -given to Tasah in 1981, Mummy's huge teddy from her children, Rag Doll bought from Harrods after visiting you in London...ooooh so many to mention. I better stop recalling and listing... I'm beginning to feel nostalgic about them all !!!!!!!!!!! sob,sob,sob,sob,sob
