Week 4

rose made for liz:

first time made: indonesian chicken soup:
sateh made from peanut butter, ketchup, ketjap manis, coconut milk, lime juice, full milk, herbs and Worcester sauce.

first time made: shrimps in a curry made of a lot of stuff. will be named later. 
surinam rice. vegetable called: "kouseband" and cabbage: steamed.

the following photo shows you what it looks like if it is served to a large group of people and one forgets to take a photo... just before it is ALL GONE!! #delighted

what is on the bottom of the picture is  a skewer with chicken and turkey pieces on it. marinated in ketjap manis, ginger root, garlic, onion, yellow root or kurkuma, spring onion, kafir lime leafs, peppercorns, spicy peppers, laos and just before grilling glazed with honey

*** Have a happy bento day! ***

liz also made a gado-gado version for rose!
a f&%#ing PRETTY and CUTE version... taste will be decided on tomorrow! but she DID deliver on the blanching on the veg and the decorations!!

beans and egg decorated with seaweed flowers!

egg with bean  sprouts and seaweed decoration! how  cute!

rice (sticky yeah) with a seaweed flower!

the name "gado gado" is I think from Surinam.  i think "gado" means God. which means that the dish is called "god god" so it must be delish! But how "petjil" got it's name - which is also vegetables and peanut sauce- is a mystery to me. What I DO know is that there is Saté sauce and completely different Peanut Sauce and those get confused a lot in the Netherlands.
