Thank You Teachers!

On Friday, I helped out at the school's annual Teachers' Appreciation Lunch organised by the PTO. There were so many teachers, assistant teachers, and other staff streaming in steadily from 11am to 1pm. With 60 countries represented in the school student body, the food contributed by mums was really diverse.

Me? I baked a chocolate cake and cooked economical beehoon (but the teachers were told it was Singapore Noodle :)), shown in the middle of the dessert and mains collages below.

Ooooooh... its your absolutely delectable and scrumptious chocolate cake!

Haven't got the good fortune to taste it yet but read the reviews that its simply out of this world and you are also a baking queen like Ad! The beehoon looks deeeeeeeelicious too!

Read your blogs on the cupcakes as well:)!

I'm totally NOT a baking queen, find baking such a chore. I only bake cupcakes and this chocolate cake, that's it. You should try to bake the cake too, it's really, really, easy and so, so, delicious. Can't go wrong one.

Beehoon also very very easy, I love economical beehoon. Yesterday was Sean's first time finishing a plate of beehoon (have to force him), and he said it's nice but the noodles are a bit too thin and too stringy :)

I love economical beehoon too. Mine's always either too greasy or too soggy...

Yes, will try baking the chocolate cake this hols.

Watched "Take Home Chef" by Aussie Chef Curtis Stone on TV just now and saw the Chocolate Pudding he made... with chocolate syrup oozing out from the cake... looked so good that made me go and walloped two egg tarts (no other desserts in the fridge except ice cream). Feel very fat now! Sigh!

Chris: There was actually lots more food, I didn't take pictures of all the food. There were a few curry dishes, I think from the Indian mothers...but that's not rendang, I think it's curry.

Ann: Too soggy could be soaking too long in too hot water. Ahhh...egg tarts...so shiok. Me on Kit-Kat eating binge :(

Wah!! Lao nua already... You have one lot of very lucky teachers there! It's amazing how you manage to whip up very local dishes even when you're a zillion miles away from home...

Lilian said...

As you can see, I'm not the only mother whipping up dishes from home; everyone finds a way, when it comes to food, people can be resourceful.

My Thai friend made a delicious-looking seafood dish, a Vietnamese lady made fishcake and another vegetable dish and a Korean friend made tanghoon. The Asian dishes were the first to be wiped clean :)

Lilian, I saw a can of organic choco powder in Cold storage here, the brand is Abundant Earth, about $11. Have you try this brand, are they any good? I cannot find the one you recommended here. :-(

Lilian said...

Never heard of Abundant Earth lah, sorry. Hope Adeline reads this, she says she can find Green & Black's but it's in some organic shop near Tanglin, maybe. She uses Nestle brand, it's a brown and yellow packaging, she says it's good.

I found the image here.
