Spaghetti Seafood Marinara


At times, when I do my groceries, this question will pop into my head. Does other people do the same as me, counting everything that I take? For example, if I wanted to buy prawns, not only will I choose the good ones and the large ones too, I will also count the numbers of prawns that goes into the plastic. I think I am allergic to numbers.

I can still remember, when I was much younger, I used to follow my mom to the market. And when the shopkeeper is calculating (using a calculator) the total amount, I, at the same time was doing mental maths and will be very proud enough if I win. Nobody knew what I was doing and nobody needs to know. It's just for my self satisfaction! Hahahaha...

So, is there anybody as weird as me, counting almost everything that is countable? Hahahaha.....

After looking at Nor Secubit Garam's photo of her Spaghetti Marinara, I paid a visit to Ayu's blog as Nor said she took the recipe from there. And after reading the recipe and found it very easy enough to prepare as it's similar to how I normally prepare my bolognaise, I went 'fishing' in my refrigerator and in my 'cute pantry'. Yes... it's MISSION POSSIBLE! I have most of the ingredients... and wallah... it's a right decision to make. Even my mom enjoyed her bowl of Spaghetti Seafood Marinara. Thank you to Nor for 'torturing' me with your photo and to Ayu for sharing this lovely recipe with us. I'll post the recipe according to how I had done it.

  4. Same here MF. whenever I buy sotong or prawns or even fish, I count coz I want to make sure everyone in the house gets a fair share. It's an old habit. You are not alone. And each time the fella at the supermart weighs whatever I have chosen, I must take a peek to see how much it cost. hehehe

  5. sedapnye kalau dapat kat anak dara fiza mau diulang2 makan ni...he he he...fiza tgk pun dah terliur dah...

  6. yes,mcm kjee kata ,you are not alone,nope its not weird...just to be precise..mteh mmg bilang apa2 saja yg dibeli..almaklumlah...keluarga besar,tak aci la nanti x cukup portionnya.spaghetti mmg mengancam..weekend ni agak2nya bleh wat kot,

  7. salam mama.. anak2 kita kalau nampak spagetti macam ni warna merah ni memang suka.. jadinya tak rugi cuba nak buat juga la nanti..:)InsyaAllah

  8. teringat dulu masa dok asrama, tiap kali lepas sidai baju kat ampaian kena kira dulu berapa helai, takut nanti tak kutip habih bila angkat.

  9. mama, nampak sedaplah ...
    anak-anak saya memang 'hantu spagati'. kalau saya masak spageti bolognese ke, carbonara ke.. boleh makan dari pagi sampai ke malam! huhu.. nanti nak cuba resepi mama ni pulak! thanks!! :)
