Bruschetta @ Hall 8

I was watching TV programme at my beloved QQ's room.
With the rest playing Mahjong.
I never learn how to play.

QQ says "don't bother to teach her", cos i always forget what i've learnt, even after Many Many times of viewing their MJ session.

No talent in Mahjong, perhaps.
But... I always wanted to learn, but without playing with $$$ *hint hint* Any taker?

So back to my room, there I go.
Left my key in QQ's room all alone.
Slippers i changed, downstairs i went.
To get my poor key was my aim.
To get back to my room, to bathe and sleep.
But... But... But...
Hijacked, there and then.
And this was what i did in the end.


Bruschetta with diced tomato in herbs & olive oil and mozzerella cheese

Being asked to be a Sous Chef, how could i resist??? Lol...

And we made, Bruschetta!!!

" Bruschetta is a food whose origin dates to at least the 15th century from central Italy. It consists of grilled bread rubbed with garlic and topped with extra-virgin olive oil, salt and pepper. Variations may include toppings of spicy red pepper, tomato, vegetables, beans, cured meat, and/or cheese; the most popular American recipe involves basil, fresh mozzarella, and tomato. Bruschetta is usually served as a snack or appetizer. "

It was tedious, for the 9 slices of Bonjour Herb Loaf, we took almost an hour to prepare. Restricted by the mini oven, or should i call it toaster instead, it's so small, food production was extremely slow. =(

People waiting and calling out for their supper, i heard from the pantry. They were drawn by the luscious buttered toast.

After a few mishaps, like

  • "The Fell of Cherry Tomato" by JOjo on the way to pantry,
  • "The Fell of Freshly Grilled Bruschetta in the Oven" by JOjo too and
  • "The Sticking of The Cheese on The Glass Panel" by our Ms.Shu Pei who claimed that she would make sure no more mishap happen to our Bruschetta,

our supper was finally ready to be served. Yeah!!!

The effort of putting the bread in and out of the oven for 3 times was paid off. Every bite of the Bruschetta was crispy and burst with the aromatic smell of butter and garlic. Extremely delectable!

A glass of Nepal's Mint tea (with compliment by ShuPei) with NTUC's honey and a slice of freshly made Bruschetta, Hall life couldn't be any better. Just for this once...

Ps: All the ingredients were provided by Swifthawk, with compliments. Lotsa thanks!
