Salam, Kia Ora....
I've never eaten or heard of Shabsuka....tks to 'pest' book....hahahaz. Got a few friends that were promoting and showing photos of this mouth watering yet unusual dish to me and I was tempted by it ;p. This is the 2nd time that I made this dish. Hb really liked it and gave his thumbs up when I first made it and he did say that he will look forward to having this dish again.
Today, hb invited one of his work mate, Pat, over to our home for dinner & watch cricket (yeah that boring sport). I wonder how ppl can watch a cricket test and not get bored of it. At first, I couldn't understand how they can score 500+ points for a game. I know now that some test takes 2 days to finish. I don't mind watching a 20/20 game....but not a 50/50 or a test....bbbbbboooooorrrrinnnnggg *yawnzz* hehehez
Decided to make shabsuka for dinner tonight...didnt make it too spicy as I don't want Pat to be on fire. It was a 4 thumbs up dish, 2 frm Pat and 2 frm hb. I suka...u suka, shabsuka!!! hooorrreeey.....
