Cooking a storm!

Early this month, I was 'cajoled and conned' to attend a lunch which turned out to be a cookout session at Emily's bungalow in the neighbourhood. Emily is our insurance agent/mother's friend's daughter. When we arrived at her house, we were surprised that there were few other of her friends there cooking! (and we thought we could just eat, pat backside and leave hahah)

We felt abit out of place standing around doing nothing but before shame overcame us, we were roped in to help out in the cooking and soon after, we were both tasked with a recipe each! The following mouth watering dishes are what we cooked on that afternoon-night. I will post the recipes and some other pictures of the process in the following posts...

Enjoy now :D

Chocolate orange polenta cake by Eiling

It was such a wholesome and satisfying meal, eating what we have cooked ourselves. Mind you, all of us are amateur chefs and this is the first time we're trying out the recipes. Although the cost of this meal isn't exactly 'cheap thrills' but it certainly gave us the thrill that money can't buy. And we're planning to have a cookout session once a month! Pity the maid though, haha.
