Apom Potong

Salaam Maal Hijrah 1431 to everyone....

It was raining heavily just now.... and I have this verse singing repeatedly in my brain...

Rain rain don't go away
It'll be nice if I can sleep the whole day....

Hahaha.... I wish!!! I am in my L.A.Z.Y mode at the moment. It's been a while actually. But if I show you what I've ended up cooking (without any plans or whatsoever), you will definately say... mama is a liar. How can she cook all these when she's lazy. I don't really know how to explain it but it's true I am feeling lazy and I am tired of it makes me feel lousy!

Yesterday, I had hoped thought we'd eat out. But hubby was so into his programming mission and showed no sign of leaving his laptop. I got the message! So in order not to let the household go into the starving mode, I had to do something. Ended up cooking these....

The same thing happened this morning. Before going to bed yesterday night, I was thinking of having nasi lemak for breakfast and would go out with hubby to get them. When I said to him, lets go buy the nasi lemak, he said ok but he didn't move an inch from his laptop! And me, just felt lazy to go on my own. So, like it or not, I ended up preparing the breakfast in my kitchen! Didn't snap any photos just now. We had, Nasi Goreng Belacan (I used the Seri Aji Perencah), keropok lekor goreng, Cheesey Chicken Rolls and Kuih Apom Potong. There you go... hahaha.. and mama said she's lazy! Hahaha.... Well actually, I wanted to clear the fridge as much as possible...

After Zohor, hubby had asked me, where shall we go. Told him that I wanted to go to IOI Mall to get something. He said okay. But then, neither of us moved a centimeter from our laptops. And now, the clock is showing 16.30 and we're still stuck at home! I guess we'll be stuck at home the whole day today. Why am I not surprised! Hihihi.....

Anyway, let me just share this recipe that I had tried recently, again, using my steamer. I am loving my steamer very much now. It's Kuih Apom Potong. Came across this recipe when I visited Kak Rusnah's Fotopages. It's so easy to prepare and tasted nice as well. Thank you Kak Rusnah for sharing the recipe. Allow me to translate it and post it in my blog so that many others could give it a try....
