Easter Eggs

Some days are harder than others. Ever since I started the #100happydays challenge it has made me realise every day has its blessings, usually multiple. In the midst of a busy weekend, I was home for a couple of hours to take a quick nap and sandwich and I caught my roommate Hallie making these beautiful creations.

I love how everyone has their own tradition, Hallie's mom was always into egg decorating and thus has passed on to Hallie. I joined in to make one (i did a simple green, always drawn to my flag colours you could say.)

Here are some of her and her friends' beauties <3 p="">




 That plain greenish one is mine. It later ended up as a deem bhorta for my dinner, hehe.

and my lovely roommate with her creations.














Aah Life, I find new things to love every day <3 br="" nbsp=""> And here is some music :D Till next time!

So I went to Rod Dee at last!!

My big mistake was ordering the same thing I do at Pad Thai cafe and guess what, although better presented, it tasted exactly the same!!! The long trek in the snow (I lie, my friend picked me up) was for kinda same.

It was good nevertheless. But I should have ordered the pad Thai, it looked amazing.


Recipe: Fried goat cheese balls with caramelised onions

I first had this dish in a restaurant in NYC , and I was in love! The restaurant is rather high end, so frequenting it wasn't an option so the next time I craved it I had to make it.

So in the spirit of valentines day and the fact that school closed early due to the snowstorm I treated myself to this yummy appetizer (originally had it as tapas)

(This is me thinking about the goat cheese balls while getting home) 

Ingredients (makes 8 balls)

Goat cheese (soft ish)
Red onion half
Brown sugar
Flour
Eggs (2)
Bread crumbs 

Procedure:

1. Roll goat cheese into one inch balls and put on wax paper and in the fridge while you prepare the other things.


2. While that's in the fridge, mix two eggs with 3/4th cup of flour in one bowl and lay out bread crumbs in another.

3. In medium heat fry the onions (thinly sliced) in canola oil for ten minutes.
Add brown sugar and keep on low heat for the duration of the rest of the cooking.

4. Take the cheese out of the fridge and cover in the flour batter and cover in bread crumbs. Repeat that step: cover in batter and again in bread crumbs. 


5. Heat the oil in a sauce pan on high heat and fry the cheese balls for 3/4 minutes. Remove and soak in paper towels to rid excess oil. Sprinkle some salt over them.

6. Add a bit of honey or syrup over onions and serve with the cheese balls.

Tip: mash the goat cheese first and then make circles with the palm of your hands to get the round shape. repeat again once covered in breadcrumbs. 



Ey Voila! It's not that hard!
