Good morning everyone
Happy Thursday! One more day to our long weekend break. Hari Raya Haji is just around the corner. Actually, it is this Sunday as a matter of fact. I will be heading down to my parent-in-law place's this weekend. Looking forward to family gathering and stuffing my face with umie's food. Yummy! Anyway, this entry will be on food. Last night's dinner was a simple Mihun Goreng Puteh aka Fried White Bee Hoon. It is one of my all-time favourite dish. I had attempted to cook this Mihun Goreng several times before based from different recipes in the internet but they didn't turned out what I expected.
Two weekends ago, I bought a cookbook by Sheila Rusly. The cookbook contains 20 recipes of noodles and pasta. One of them contains my favourite Mihun Goreng recipe and so I thought why not try to cook the noodle and see how it turns out. Alhamdulilah, the Mihun Goreng turned out what I had been hoping for. I even got two thumbs up from darling hubby, mother-in-law and my baby girl. Success!!

One of the things that I like about this book is that the ingredients used for all the recipes are easy to find and simple. No complicated ingredients which is good for my budget.
