哇鬼来了之十月杂记

20161002_201851

西方人庆祝的万圣节落在每年的10月31日,所以十月头就会看见商场和食肆都会陆陆续续以恐怖道具装饰门面。有别于我们华人的鬼节(又称中元节或盂兰节),西方人的万圣节不但不会给人阴森可怕的感觉,反而有种嘉年华会的feel.  当晚小孩会穿上化妝服,戴上面具,挨家挨戶按响邻居的门铃,大叫‘Trick-or-treat’ (不給糖就搗蛋),主人家便会拿出一些糖果、巧克力或是小礼物。 现在万圣节已经是一个普天同庆的节日了,不止西方国家连我们亚洲人也参与其中。几可乱真的裝扮已不限於恐怖,电视剧或电影明星,公众人物和政治家都是受欢迎的变装对象。 趴地用品店玲琅满目的道具绝对能满足你那爱拍照的欲望,但有些店是no photography的,自己要看着办哦~   应应节, 噗~ 南瓜是最能代表万圣节的象征物 (杰克南瓜灯),所以到处都可以看见它的踪影。 PS: 千多元的大南瓜有人买吗? =.=”   大家都玩得不亦乐乎的拍照app (YouCam Fun), 本人觉得厨师最可爱 ^__^   妈妈曾经在家当保姆好长一段时间,照顾过的小孩应该有8,9位,现在还有联络的就剩下3,4位。他们(好巧都是男生)都是和我一样称呼我妈妈为‘妈妈’而且常常会在我妈家留宿,关系很close。 而最近我妈带的第一个小孩结婚了,当然是阖府统请,全家一起出席他的婚宴。 你我都知道华人的婚宴无论周末周日,奢望准是开席绝对是天方夜谭所以拍照片是消磨时间最好的活动!哈哈~   当天地OOTN~   这个月的oven蛮忙的, 嘻嘻 😛 平时除了烤鸡/鱼,我是很少做烘培的因为它真的不是姐的强项啦~ 超市买的马芬预伴粉,只需加水或牛奶就可以了。 量水,搅拌,放巧克力豆这些简单的动作如果能让小朋友参与,这不但是很好的亲子活动而且满满的参与感能让他们会觉得成品会特别美味!   很久没做的免揉面包~ 要做shaping时很黏手,所以只能勉强弄个很不圆的”圆型”就拿去烘了。之后有网友告诉我说免揉面包是不用shaping的,直接一团拿去烘。但我看见别人做是可以做出造型而且可以放陷料的哦,按怎? ╮(╯_╰)╭ 虽然成品是有点丑啦,但其实面包体是蛮柔软的~ 我会再接再励参考别的食谱再试试看。   最近爱上酥皮 😛 它千变万化,甜的,咸的都可以! 甜的可以搽果酱,榛子巧克力酱,也可以做成咸点,包香肠,火腿,吞拿鱼,叁巴辣椒江鱼仔等~   墨西哥式酥皮苹果派,食谱请参考: http://bit.ly/2fCU8si   ’香菇 蓝瘦‘应该是近日除了PPAP外最热的搜寻词,噗~ 但我的香菇鸡汤绝对喝了不会让你蓝瘦,我保证!   排骨药材汤,我最爱的汤之一。但我还是未能煲出100%妈妈的味道,哎哟~   天天中餐偶尔也要换换口味。所以西式意大利面,烤鸡腿或日式咖喱饭也会随机出现在餐桌 🙂   红色芫菜滚汤,漂亮的紫红色~   加梳打饼的肉丸是参考娇娇的食谱的,可以增加香气~ […]
