Themed Parties.

Posted in Pictures, Random Thought on September 29, 2009 by woohoosteph

My good friend, Daniel, turned twenty one this past weekend and  what a party it was. His theme originally was Nintendo Characters but expanded to games from any platform. Daniel dressed as a Superhero version of Pacman, I went as Misty from Pokémon. Princess Daisy, Lara Croft, Ninja, Tetris and a few others were in attendance.

The whole to-do got me thinking about what I’d like to do for my 21st (in May). Should I have a theme or not?

Here are a few ideas:

  • Twilight themed party. Bring on the Edward Cullens of the world. 😀
  • Toga/Greek God theme.
  • Casino theme.
  • Mardi Gras Masquerade theme

I’m sure themes make parties more interesting, but I always fear that people won’t adhere to the theme, and I am an organisation freak.

Have you ever had a themed party? How did it go?

Recipe: Sweet and Sour Balti Chicken.

Posted in Recipes on August 20, 2009 by woohoosteph

Words actually can’t describe how beautiful this dish is to the eye and to the taste buds. This is pretty much the simplest “from scratch” curry recipe you will find, and it is easily adjusted, if you’d like it a little more heated. A spicy, sweet, creamy dish to satisfy the most discerning palates.

Ingredients:

  • 2 Chicken Breasts, skinned and fat removed
  • 3tbsp Greek Yogurt
  • 2tbsp Tomato Puree
  • 2tbsp Sweet Mango Chutney
  • 1tsp Garlic Pulp (or pressed garlic)
  • 2tsp Garam Masala
  • 1tsp Chilli Powder
  • 1tsp Sugar
  • 1/2tsp Salt
  • 100ml Water
  • 2 Green Chilies, thin-ishly sliced
  • 2tbsp Single Cream
  • 2tbsp Fresh Coriander, finely chopped
  • 1. Dice the chicken.

    2. In a bowl, mix the yoghurt, tomato puree, mango chutney, garlic, garam masala, chilli powder, sugar and salt together in a bowl.

    3. Heat 2 tablespoons of sunflower oil in a wok/deep frying pan.

    4. Pour the yoghurt, puree etc mix into the wok and stir into the oil.

    5. Bring the sauce to the boil, add the chicken cubes and continue to stir.

    6. Pour the water around the bowl that contained the sauce and swish it around in order to soak up any of the remaining ingredients. Add this to the pan and bring it to the boil.

    7. Slice the chilies. If you don’t like too much heat in your food, remove the seeds before you slice them. When the sauce is boiling, add the chilies and the cream and coriander.

    8. Stir and bring to the boil again and let it bubble for around 5 minutes.

    9. Serve with basmati rice and naan bread.

    Edit: I accidently deleted the picture from my camera, but it should be a reddish brown colour and just looks divine!

    Toasted Bagel + Cream Cheese + Sliced Fresh Strawberries = Deliciousness beyond imagination.

    I don’t know why it had never crossed my mind before to put fruit on bagels. I’m sure I’m not the first to do this. The thoughts of kiwis, sliced grapes and cheese. Oh man, if I wasn’t so full, I’d make some more.

    Any suggestions on “out of the ordinary” bagel fillings?

    New Romantic

    I am a difficult woman to please, so if you ever succeed in doing so, congratulations. If you are successful on the first try, hell, you deserve a medal.

    Recently, I’ve been trying to find some new music to listen to (mainly to get Beyoncé’s “Single Ladies” out of my head). A friend of mine suggested to me a lady by the name of Laura Marling. I tabbed over to youtube.com and searched for her. My ears have been blessed by what they have heard.

    Her gentle picking of the acoustic guitar, her delicate yet somehow rough vocals sent shivers down my spine. I am a fan.

    Pasta alla carbonara!

    Posted in Recipes with tags , , , on April 26, 2009 by woohoosteph

    I love Italian food. “Love” being the understatement of the century. I present to you possibly the most delicious pasta dish ever created, carbonara. The idea of this creamy, garlic-y dish has me salivating already.

    Ingredients (2 people):

    • 2 portions of Spaghetti/Fettuccine .
    • 2 medium size hen’s eggs.
    • 5 Tablespoons of cream
    • 50g  red cheddar cheese.
    • 2 cloves of garlic.
    • 10 thin slices of cooked ham.
    • Butter.
    • Black Pepper.
    • Parmasean

    Method:

    1. Cook the pasta as per instructions until “al dente”.
    2. Crack the eggs into a bowl. Add the cream and cheese and a knob of butter and mix thoroughly.
    3. Crush the garlic and add to the bowl.
    4. Cut the slices of ham into thin strips.
    5. Transfer the contents of the bowl into a saucepan and heat on a low-medium heat. Be sure to constantly stir the sauce until it is cooked, or instead of a sauce, you’ll end up with a scrambled egg mixture and a burnt saucepan. You can tell the sauce is almost cooked when the cheddar cheese has melted.
    6. At this stage, add the sliced ham, and continue to cook and stir until the sauce is slightly thicker and the ham has heated.
    7. One can either add the pasta to the sauce and mix it or serve the pasta and pour the sauce over it. Either way, you’re guaranteed an unforgettable meal.

    Serving Suggestion:

    I adore garlic, and when I make this, I use around 4 cloves. It gives a much stronger flavour, particularly to the meat itself and is not for the faint hearted.

    I also suggest a nice garlic bread, after all, this is Italian cuisine.
