The trials & tribulations of having a live-in chef (or living & feasting in our cottage in Seremban, and now Beijing)

Boys in the garden

Little L (Luscious L's son) had a wonderful time running up and down our garden last weekend. Big Chef taught him a new trick - how to roll down the garden ! So much energy.

Roast pork rack stuffed with apricots

In honour of Luscious L's visit to our cottage, Big Chef decided to roast a rack of pork, stuffed with dried apricots. Luscious L is a total pork freak ! Pork rack was from The Meat Co in Bangsar, cost RM23 and was enough to feed 6 and 1/2 people. Little L (Luscious L's son) = 1/2.

The stuffed apricot pic looks a bit obscene somehow.

I'm a terrible photographer and blogger. I forgot to take pics of the finished products. Aiya ! We had the roast pork with apple gravy, mashed potatoes and spinach, pickled cucumbers, grilled carrots and sweet potatoes, tomatoes and some green leafy butterhead which everyone refused to touch. Obviously we know our priorities !

A couple of slices of pork were left over and became part of our dinner later.

Pyromaniac in the house !

We had a pyromaniac staying with us last weekend. Big Chef and my dad spent the whole Saturday making voooom voooom noises with the chainsaw which my dad had carried all the way from Kuching. They were cutting and chopping the roots of the fruit trees in the garden. Made a nice big pile. We also had a big pile of old wood from the roof renovation and of course the boys had a lovely time making a nice bonfire. Pyro dad thoroughly enjoyed it I'm sure ! Burn baby burn !
