Homemade gone wrong.... not!

Today I feel so ambitious that I feel like making homemade bolognese. I asked Angah how she made her tomato paste.

Get the how, boiled, peel the skin and blend. Done. Easy peasy.

Next, grinding the fresh meat. I looked at the meat. Oh my. Banyaknye urat. Oh well, hand mixer ade. Tried grinding them but heh, it took hours to make sure the meat minced perfectly. Liat gile urat ni *sigh

Ah give up. Xpelah ketul2 sikit. Ok, ape pulak. Oh yes, the onions! Rummaging my onion rack and saw only one holland onion. Umph, xpe. Tambah jelah bawang besar satu. Add few garlic. Hmm.. Blend instead of chopping pun ok gak.

There goes the prep. I still feel ambitious about my homemade bolognese. So I heat up olive oil, put the onions, minced meat and tomatoes. Add bay leaves, salt and pepper. While cooking, I finally realize this shall turns a disaster. Hahaha.

Just look at the color. What would you guess?

Laksa? Kuah kacang? 

After feel like everything is cooked, I tasted. It was horrible! It was far from bolognese. More to meat broth.

Oh my. Oh my. What should I do? Shall I throw this? Aa.. I hate wasting food, moreover after the whole prepping before hand. Ok. I tasted it again. Hmm.. Maybe it shall taste better with the sliced cheddar cheese.

I shall give my girl a try. Cooked the spaghetti and I was so nervous that she will throw it up.

Bismillahhhhh... She take a bite and said 'Hmm sedap dap' Whoaaa.. Ok ok. Lets see if she were that honest and finish the whole bowl.

She did! She did it okay! Haha.

Ok now. The husband. Well, I cant lie. So I have be diplomatic. So when he's home, he asked what was it. He have no idea so I told him it is 'Spaghetti meat broth. New recipe' with a flat face. Looking at his reaction, he seems buying it.

Finally, the moment of truth. I bring the plate to him together with water and oranges, in case things gone wrong, while he is browsing his PC (A good wife today, I know)

He awed looking my effort today and I leave him with THE FOOD. Went into the room attending Aqil and heard his spoon and fork clacking the plate. I was so nervous that I am so afraid he will spit it out. Hahaha! Then the clacking noise continues.

Things seems good when he didnt called me after eating. I went out and peek that he finished it all. He said 'Sedap jugak' and respond with a smile like a normal day.

Went back into the room and dance!! Hahhaha. Phewwww... It was hell of miserable cooking but alhamdulillah the family take it well. Kahkah.

So I quickly update my insta and told my friends. Husband still didnt know that it was a homemade-gone-wrong meal but I get caught when he saw me smiling and laughing while typing on my phone. He asked and you can imagine the cat and mouse scene when he tries to steal my phone. Of course I loose lah! He finally found out and had a big laugh while I ran inside the toilet and locked myself inside. Yeah, I am so shy kantoi like that. Hehe.

I told Angah about this and she said, she never tried using the meat and she used cherry tomatoes instead of that normal tomatoes. Aiyaaa... Belajar tak habis. Ishk.. Takpe. Next time boleh cuba lagi..

.. NOT!

Tika itu, tangan wan dah paralyzed. Kak long tak tahu kalau wan boleh rasa kak long pegang tangan wan. Kak long sedih bila fikir semua yang tangan tu dah buat utk kak long.

Kak long tahu, tangan tu banyak curah kasih sayang kat kak long. Tangan yang ajar siang ikan, tangan yang ajar selok belok perihal rumah (lipat kain, menyapu etc) Wan jugak sangat trust kak long kupas kelapa dan mesin nyor tu. Peh.. Time tu rse sgt kewl. Hebat sangat sbb berani mesin nyor. Tapi kalau suruh sekarang, memang tak dah.

Masakan wan paling sedap kebabom sampai tahap tak berani puji melambung nanti umi dengar umi kecik ati. Setiap kali sampai rumah wan, mesti selongkar tudung saji. Dapat sisa pun, habis kitorg adik beradik kerjakan.

Wan sangat penyayang, susah nak tengok wan marah. Aki suka sakat wan dan time tu boleh dengar wan berleter aki sakat wan.

Seorang yang sangat bersangka baik dengan orang. Ade satu conversation dengan wan yang buat kak long kata ayah garang, suke rotan ktorg, tp bila time adik (bongsu) x buat pun. Rasa tak adil. Tapi wan kata, masa kak long kecik, ayah masih muda, darah panas. Sekarang da berusia, dah tak larat nak marah2 lg. Betul juga.

Ingat satu masa dulu, ayah marah kak long berak lama dalam jamban. Ayah cakap 'berak ke main air?!'Terbantut feeling berak tapi wan back up. Wan cakap 'Xpe la. Die geli tu sembur air tu' Wah..dalam hati menari2 ade jugak orang back up aku berak lama.

Those are memories, memories that when wan was healthy and me was too young to understand that one day, this will go away, people will get old and you will have to continue living your life and be realistic.

Those were the days where I promised myself that when I have my own job, I want you to stay with me, bring you to the mall in a wheel chair,xde duit xpe, janji bawak wan jalan2. I promise you, that you will see me get married, have own child before you go away. Luckily one of those promises came true.

Then maturity hit me. Reality slapped me hard that you still have your child, that deserved more to take the responsibility, the love that a child longing to pay the debt that you had sacrifice for bringing them to this world. I respect their decision and I am more than happy to be able spend the time before I get my own job.

Remembering those night that you wakes me up in the middle of the night to change your diaper or have to sweat myself cleaning you for your shower and you never stop saying how sorry you were for making the trouble. Lillahitaala wan. It was never a trouble. There was nothing to forgive when I just love you so much that I wish I could just leave everything and spend the rest of my life with you.

Although we seldom see each other, I always, always have you in here - my heart. Selalu wan. Kak long tak ingat kak long pernah cakap kak long sayang wan. Tapi kak long lega dapat bagitahu wan 2minggu lepas. Kak long lega wan sempat sentuh Rauhah dengan Aqil. Allah.. Tuhan jer tahu happynya kak long dapat peluang bagi cicit untuk wan.

Kak long sentiasa doakan kebaikan wan. InsyaAllah wan, kak long akan sentiasa sebut wan dalam doa kak long. Semoga Allah ampunkan dosa wan, tempatkan dikalangan orang beriman. Kita jumpa lagi. Kak long sayang Wan. Sungguh.
