I have this for breakfast this morning. The bread is crunchy with a slightly chewy and delicate center and yeah I love the smell of the garlic butter. This is how I prepare this golden garlic bread.

4-5 slices French loaf
2 tbsp butter, room temperature
1 garlic pod, smashed
1 tbsp dried parsley leaves

1. Preheat oven to 180C
2. Mix butter, smashed garlic pods in a small bowl.
3. Spread over the bread. Sprinkle on top with dried parsley leaves.
4. Heat for 5 minutes in oven at 180C.
5. Turn it over, cook for a further 5 minutes and remove it from the oven.
6. Serve hot with mushroom soup.


Roasted Chicken with potatoes

I’ve been very busy lately. The school holiday is ending and there are so many things to catch up. The kids are transferring school and we need to process the application forms, to shop for books, uniforms and stationery, to send them for hair cut…oh so hectic and my friend is sending me another clothes for beading. So here I am stuck for a while in with my beading project.

Though schedule is very tight, I still need to cook for the family…and of course I tried my best to make the simplest meal but tasty enough. Today’s dinner, we have roasted chicken and potatoes. The chicken is generously coated with herbs and baked until done.
