It was scary. The street was so quiet.
But it wasn't all bad. I got to eat a lot of things.
I was VERY excited to finally be having this culinary experience!
To my great surprise, it tasted exactly like the fruit buns I get all the time from Baker's Delight. Except it had a white cross on it.
It also wasn't hot.
The best thing about Easter long weekend was that I had TWO stay-at-home humans.
We slept in on Good Friday. Maybe the church bells went off. I don't know, I didn't hear them.
After a late breakfast of beef mince and chicken necks, we headed off to Callan Park.
Except for Zarny! I haven't seen Zarny much lately. She mostly plays in a park where the dogs aren't clumsy and rough like me. Maybe one day, when I'm a Lady, I'll get to play with her again.
And Molly. Doesn't it look like she's walking on water here?
We got eggs for Easter breakfast. They weren't pretty or colourful like the ones in the stores. And there was no rich gooey chocolate in the middle either. I don't think they were Easter Eggs at all.
Since it was a chilly, rainy, lazy day, my stay-at-home human decided to make her special...
Homemade Soup Noodle *Meen Farn Koh*
*Shallots, as many as you like [or red Spanish onions if shallots are not available] - slice into rings and fry in hot oil until fragrant, dark and crisp.
*Eschallots [otherwise known as spring onions] and coriander - chopped.
*For the brave - red chillies, sliced. Mix with chilli-garlic blend, light and dark soy.
*A few cloves garlic - peeled and crushed
*A handful of ikan bilis [dried anchovies], a handful of har-mei [dried shrimp] - available at Asian groceries
*Pork ribs and rashers - as many as you like to make a good tasty stock
In a large pot, fry the garlic, ikan bilis, har-mei and pork until fragrant.
Add water to cover the ingredients.
Bring to boil, then simmer for a couple of hours. Stir occasionally.
Choy sum, bok choy, or wong buk.
Wong buk will sweeten the soup better.
Prepare the vegies by cleaning and cutting them into pieces then leave aside. They should only be cooked in the soup at the last minute - around the time when you're ready to cook the dough pieces.
3 cups plain flour
The sand pit there is a great place to meet other dogs.
I met my first Mud Dog. I like this look a lot.
The dog I'm hunting in this picture is called Bosley. He was named after where he was adopted.
Bosley could really, really run. Since I couldn't catch him, I tricked him into getting muddy instead.
Poor Bosley. I don't think his mum was too happy and he had to go home soon after that.
I heard my stay-at-home human say she's putting me on a diet starting tomorrow. I'm not quite sure what she means by that.
Maybe she's going to start feeding me lamb chops, steaks and bananas every day.
That would be really nice.
