A strange morning

On Sunday, I survived the day with only 4 hours of sleep. I only gotten to bed at 2am and woke up at 6am on Sunday as I need to fulfil an order.

I could only blame my hubby for being a TV addict. Somehow, I find men love the TV and being a couch potato. Perhaps it is a form of relaxation for them?

Usually TV has this hypnotic effect on me, I tend to fell asleep while watching TV but for this particular Saturday's late night, the program was surprisingly aired in Cantonese. Gosh, it has been a long time since I last watch a show in this dialect.

Anyway, this morning, I am like a zoombie. The perk of being a homemaker is that after I fulfilled my role as a driver in the morning, I went back to bed. Had an extra hour or so and I felt so much better.

It was a great morning. Light breeze and a little sunny but I think it didn’t last long. The weather turned pretty humid after that I needed three showers. It is definitely bad for my skin.

Checked into the cyberworld for some inspiration of what to cook for tonight's dinner and bingo! I saw this recipe from Almost Bourdain.

I knew my kids will love it as they are a big fan of potatoes. I am going to do a slight modification so that we can have this as a dinner.

Initially my family thought it was Rosti as we are a big fan of this. Since I don't recall me eating this in Germany, I actually can't do a comparison. Kartoffelpuffer or German Potato Pancakes didn't have this crispy texture like Rosti.

Hubby suggested that I should cook it longer to get that crisp which I am not sure whether it is attainable without burning it.

I like the fact it has onion that adds some crunch to it without the bite (I love onion but it has to be cooked). I also created some salmon cream to go with it and it was delicious. I couldn't finish the three pan cakes on my plate as it was rather filling.

We enjoyed it thoroughly.

Thanks for sharing.

  1. This looks very interesting. Going to put on my list. Hopefully it's not too difficult to do. I love cooked onions too, esp the white ones. :)

  2. These potato pancakes look good to eat. I do swiss potato rosti which has chopped onions and black peppercorn.

  3. KWF, I love white onions too. SO sweet.

    J, long time ago, I did attempt Rosti but not as good as those avail in the restaurant.
