What's for lunch?

I was home today as my eldest boy wasn't feeling well. The rest of the kids were also home since it's a school holiday. The exams are coming too!

I made my own lunch today. I bought some coral lettuce yesterday and decided to make a salad for myself. I used a packet of salmon flakes which my elder sister gave me. Mixed it with my homemade sesame olive oil dressings.

Here's what went into my healthy sumptuous salad-coral lettuce, cherry tomatoes, button mushrooms, salmon, fried garlic, almond nibs, black pepper and sesame olive oil dressings.


Quite sometime back, my sister ordered some books from Amazon and asked if I want to order. I told her I wanted to buy "Heavenly Cakes" by Rose. She ordered for me and didn't give me until lately.  I was pleasantly surprised when it turned out that she has shared with the other two sisters to give me the book as a present! I was elated! Isn't it just great to have siblings who give you what you wanted? I'm going to enjoy this book...

Hi

Congrats on getting the book by the queen of cakes! I tried only one recipe so far and its heavenly. Absolutely no need to alter any part of the recipe. Expensive but really good book worth getting.

Look forward to see you bake your heavenly cakes too =]

Hi Bakertan,
Thanks! I've got her the other two books-The Cake Bible and The Pie and Pastry Bible too! It's worth the investment right? :)

Hi

I made the perfect all american butter cake pg 54 (the cake bible) with the milk chocolate butter cream pg 250 ( the cake bible). It tasted great! I totally fell in love with the "the cake bible" after borrowing it from NLB. will be buying it if I have the chance. Thinking of getting it from betterworldbooks.com

yeah, her books are worth investing.

cheers

Hi Bakertan,
Oh, that's a great combination! You know, I love the Chocolate Domino Cake,pg 58. You really have to try this. It's moist, chocolaty and very soft. I've made it so many times, it just won't go wrong!
