Will answer that later, meanwhile.......
No, I am not having fever at the moment, but FIFA 2010 fever.... maybe! Since Friday, hubby and me had been sleeping downstairs infront of the TV. It's either we were watching the football match or the TV is watching us. But I only watched the first two games. I hardly watch the 2am games. I am not so into football actually but more to keep hubby company. If you ask me, which team is my favourite? The answer will be, any team from Africa region! 7 years in Malawi, do have some effect on me, I guess! Hahaha...
And yessss.... Ghana won the match aginst Serbia 1 - Nil. Well done guys! And though Nigeria didn't win when playing against Argentina, but they gave a good match. I must say, Nigeria's goal keeper, Vincent Enyeama is very good.
Okay, now to answer the above question. It's not a sandwich from Subway but it's the giant sandwich from MamaFaMi's kitchen. Fatin went out with her friend Ain to Mid Valley last Friday. And they had their lunch at Subway. When she came back, she was bragging about Subway's Sandwich. And dear mama, took that as a challenge. So I went on the internet to browse for a nice bread recipe. Finally I'm satisfied with a recipe posted by Donna West at AllRecipes dot Com. Thanks Donna and AllRecipes for the recipe. I made half the recipe which yields 2 loaves of rolls. Allow me to post the original recipe here for others to refer.
SWEET DINNER ROLLS/LOAFS
Source : Donna West @ AllRecipes
1/2 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
1/2 cup warm milk
1/3 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon salt
3 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
1/4 cup butter, softened
Place water, milk, egg, 1/3 cup butter, sugar, salt, flour and yeast in the pan of the bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer. Select Dough/Knead and First Rise Cycle; press Start.
When cycle finishes, turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Divide dough in half. Roll each half into a 12 inch circle, spread 1/4 cup softened butter over entire round. Cut each circle into 8 wedges. Roll wedges starting at wide end; roll gently but tightly. Place point side down on ungreased cookie sheet. Cover with clean kitchen towel and put in a warm place, let rise 1 hour. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes, until golden.
How I prepared my loaves :
I only used the 1/3 cup butter and omit the 1/4 cup butter as mentioned in the recipe above. Let the bread maker do it's job. Once the dough has doubled it's size, I took it out of the Bread Maker and divide the dough into 2 portions. Make into balls and let it rest for 10 minutes. Roll each ball flat, then roll it up like a sandwich. Place in the baking pan and let it prove till double the size. Sprinkle with a bit of water and bake for 20 minutes till golden brown. Once out of the oven, brush with butter. Place on a wire rack to cool. Keep in an airtight container to avoid it becoming hard and dry.
How Fatin prepared her so-called Subway Sandwich...
Cut the bread in half. Arrange some lettuce, then three slices of fresh tomatoes, two pieces of Turkey sliced (grilled slightly), a piece of smoked cheese slice and finally with some lettuce. Enjoy!
Just to share with you what we had yesterday for lunch....
Take care and have a nice day...
