No recipes for today, no food stories, only stuff I found while working lately.
Before I begin, I’d like you all to meet one of my food-blogging gurus: Chubby Hubby. Now you know one of the people who I got my inspiration from.
Now, let’s shop.
I found some cool stuff on the net. Here, check ’em out:
When I was a kid, we had a nanny who was like a mother to us (we called her Bibik). She’s old, but very strong. She loved us (me and my 6 siblings) the way she loved her own children. We loved her dearly ’till the day she passed away (only a few months after my Mom passed away). We still do.
We used to have this stone mortar and pestle in our kitchen. My Mom and Bibik used this mortar to grind nuts, rice, anything. I
used to watch them pounding the pestle to the mortar and observed how the granules turned into powder. Sometimes they let me try one stroke or two, then I would give up to the weight of the pestle.
Seeing this mortar on the net reminded me of them, of my lovely childhood with them in there. This is a tribute to the 2 most amazing women in my life, my Mom and Bibik. God bless you both.
This is an adjustable multi-function measuring cup that holds 2 Tbsp to 1/2 cup ingredients. And it’s also a refrigerator magnet. Nice.
Actually, it’s rather tacky🙂 But I think I’ll have one. I hate when my cake server falls on its back when the cake is not heavy enough to hold it straight. Now I give it a better look, it does really look like a shoe!
Ooooh, round kitchen! Rounded working space is my utopia!
Ok, that’s the end of our window shopping today.
Got two ideas from Recipezaar: Pineapple and Palm Sugar Turnovers and White Chocolate Mousse Filled Meringue W/Strawberries. Probably will try them soon.
Finally, Happy Aidil Fitri, everybody. I deeply apologize for everything I’ve done or said that might hurt any souls. The faults are mine and mine alone. May Allah purify our soul, give us a new birth as a better human being, just like a newborn baby. Amin, ya Rabbal Alamin.
