I'm back!!! This is my longest absence, 3 months. So many things happened during the end of last year.
I initially took a break from blogging to help my son with his examinations. When everything was over, my father in law became seriously ill and passed away. Then my mother in law moved in with us. *gasp* I knew it was not going to be easy but didn't realise it was going to be nightmare for me.
To summarized, she wears a full corset 24 hours a day, drinks an average of 700ml of water an hour, eats only 1 meal a day and that was not my cooking. She hardly eat what I cook. Even my daughter eats more than her. For the first time, cooking to me became a chore. I think I would have totally give up cooking if she had carrying on staying with us.
Then she starts commenting my house is dusty (we stay very near the MRT track). This is despite after I had did the cleaning earlier. She will go on with the windows, toilets, furniture, etc. The only time I sat down was when I was having dinner. On top of all these, she kept complaining about having pains or problems (for more than half a year) which miraculously disappeared after the doctor told her that there isn't any problem with her medical report. She now has a new aliment. Anyway, I was so stressed, I had insomnia. I was so tired but I just couldn't sleep. Imagine I had to lie to go to a neighbour's house to rest. Hai!
She decided to move back to her home a week later. However, that started another series of problems. It's a never ending story. For now, I'm going to enjoy my life till she moves back with us again. When that happens, I'll change from being WokkingMum to Iron Maid. LOL
I'm still hoping 2010 will be a better year me, even though I doubt it will be *pessimistic me*. But I do hope it will be a good year for you. ^_^
This is one of the dishes I did earlier. I used instant cereal instead of the usual breadcrumb to coat the chicken strips.
I used skinless chicken breast meat here. I marinaded the chicken strips with some salt, pepper and some light soy sauce. You can use your own marinade.
For the coating, I dusted it with cornflour, dip in beaten egg, then coat it with the instant cereal. Just deep fry it till golden brown. Drain off excess oil and serve.
You can also crush the cereal a little before use. For this one you see here, I use the cereal as it is as I wanted the crunch.
Hope you will enjoy this.
