Remember when you were learning to cycle and Suddenly there’s this stone right smack (betcha not heard this phrase in awhile), in the path of your front tyre?... and... and those handlebars automatically start to wobble and you desperately wish that #*&!@ piece of destruction would disappear... and it does!
just like that... wow... Mum, Dad, the owner of the stone or some kind soul passer-by rushed ahead and Yes! Disaster Averted! What a near miss...
If you tell me that everything always goes perfectly as planned in your kitchen, then you are a Liar! Liar! Crepes on Fire!... or you can come cook for me please please please (you get Tuesdays off).
Everything has the Murphy potential. You know... like when the wok simply refuses to listen to your stir frying, or the oven suddenly ‘browns in a blink’ <-- that’s cute and cheerful to say to little children, doncha think?
Hey, try it on your own kid now! Say it fast – ‘browns in a blink! browns in a blink!’ ok now with animation! Hahahahaha... see the happy kicking giggles? Oh, we’re having such fun today!!!
huh? what? Oh... oh... the oven! ahem...
So say what you like, but I believe we all need this precious thing called ‘instructions’. Written by culinary experts or those handed down instructions from my grand chor kong* and yours, do NOT scoff at methods, advice and warnings!
They can remove all those stones in front of your cooking, understand? So basically this is my roundabout merry-go-round giddy way to just tell you this:
READ ALL RECIPES FROM BEGINNING TO END BEFORE YOU START TO COOK IT!
ok that’s all.
