Wow, without knowing, it’s almost 10pm when I was typing this post. Seriously, days and weeks have been flying by extremely fast.
How’s everyone’s Father’s Day weekend going? We had our family dinner with Hubby K’s parents on Friday night so that covers it. My parents are in Indonesia and people don’t celebrate Father’s Day over there. Oh well.
Anyway, as usual I spent my entire day working on my stuff, so 90% of my time was sitting on my stability ball in front of the computer. Whenever I remember, I try to get up, walk up and down stairs, get some water, stretch a bit and I even took 20 minutes to do freestyle skipping (gotta practice that high knees jump rope that I finally able to do yesterday!). It’s weekend and usually Zuzana from Bodyrock.tv doesn’t post any new workouts. But I feel like I need to at least move around or I’ll go crazy.
My eats have been pretty similar lately, cause right now my focus is on my work samples website. It actually takes a lot longer than I thought and not sure I can even complete the whole thing by the end of this week. *sigh* I miss having the fun of experimenting with new recipes or coming up with whatever recipes/technique. 🙁
Breakfast for today was fried eggs with Easy Oven Taro Fries and some purple yam (plus another unpictured purple yam – it was so darn good!)
Only to find these
ARGH! Apparently you really have to babysit these babies or else they could turn from white to charcoal in a mere second! Besides my own fault for setting up the temperature too high (400°F). What can I say? It was early morning, I didn’t feel like to go upstairs to turn on the computer and read the post what exactly the desired temperature need to be.
Anyway, fear not, I tried it again during lunch time and here you go!
Much better, although wasn’t crispy enough cause I didn’t put it too long but getting there. I didn’t put any seasonings, just plainly coconut flakes and they’re tasty enough for me.
After lunch, I was still feeling like to munch more so I toasted more! This time I set the timer to 10 minutes with 400°F for 5 minutes, then turn it down to 250°F – stirring frequently. Low and behold, the old saying “third time is the charm” is really TRUE! Finally, the perfect Coconut Chips (for me)!
I munched those while continuing my work and held my hunger pretty good. Dinner time came along, I just heated up whatever left over plus I made another batch of Homemade Tomato Sauce (dang this thing is super yummy!)
Washed everything down with strawberries, which I had to finish quick before they all become moldy! Yuck!
What was your most bizarre cooking disaster?
