Making and Baking Ciabatta

This is the first time I make and bake ciabatta on my own without any help. They might not be as good (look and taste wise) as those I made the last time (when Richard was beside me showing me every step – photo below), I was still quite happy with the result.

I put them in different plastic bags then in the freezer. Before I have them for my lunch, I  will either put them in the microwave for 1 minute or in the oven for a few minutes. It is quick, and the ciabatta will be warm and soft.

Another day of some nice food

Sunday, a relaxing day. As I spent most of my day making food yesterday, I wanted to do some drawings instead today. However, I still wanted some nice, comforting food. Started with a fruit pod – blackberries, kiwi, strawberries, redcurrant and blackcurrant, with yogurt and honey topping. Lunch was scramble egg mixed with red chillies, carrot, mushroom, chinese leaf and tomatoes. I had it with the ciabatta I made last weekend. Delicious.

A satisfying day

Getting up in the morning yesterday, I’ve decided to spend my whole day making nice food, food which I’ve never made before. This was the menu:

Lunch: Homemade broccoli soup (with fried mushroom and garlic on the top), served with homemade bread (I made it last weekend for the first time)

Afternoon beverage: Smoothie (strawberry, blackberry, redcurrant and blackcurrant)

Dinner: Mi Hun Kueh/Mian Fen Gao (Malaysia style ‘pasta’ soup)

They were all delicious! Feel satisfied. I enjoyed the food and my day.

Some new drawings

I have been busy in the past few weeks – a lot of traveling for work. This is the first weekend I can just relax and do things I enjoy doing, such as cooking and drawing. I’ve added some new drawings in my ‘drawings and sketches‘ section. Enjoy!
