I was really nervous about the potluck gathering I told you guys about in my previous post and had forgotten to bring along my camera to the gathering. So pictures during the gathering are not mine. They are courtesy of my darling Haru who have so kindly snapped some photos and emailed them to me. 😀
We had plenty of food that night. Most are typical gathering/potluck food like chicken wings, salads, etc. To refresh your memories, here’s my contributions:
Mixta Ensalada as appetizer
Mixta Paella as the main dish. And guess what? The paella was a big hit and as for the simple ensalada? Not a slice of cucumber was left.
A picture of our beloved friend, digging into the last bit of the drumstick from the paella with fervour.
Err…I don’t think that’a the right cutlery to dig into the paella with, but she’s beyond caring. LoL.
A tad too hot to handle for her it seems, but all is good, and I heard nothing but praises about the quickie mixed paella that night. Perhaps that’s because despite of the lack traditional paella ingredients, I usedÂ Jasmine Pusa Gold 1121 Basmathi Import Rice. It’s well known to not only to be able to absorb flavourings well, but the light texture of the rice is positively addictive as well, making you feel like scooping one scoop after another without having the ‘too full’ feeling plaguing you too soon.
I’m glad that I chose Jasmine Pusa Gold 1121 Basmathi Import Rice for my paella. It’s a lifesaver where cooking a paella with limited ingredients is concerned. The paella turned out very flavourful and rather addictive, and could even tempt even the fussiest eater like my son to eat rice, which is a very good thing as I mentioned before that my son is autistic and have sensory disorder where the mere taste of rice puts him off. 😀 I suppose I can consider making rice dishes out of Jasmine Pusa Gold 1121 Basmathi Import Rice more often as to tempt my family members to eat more rice.
A pack of Jasmine Pusa Gold 1121 Basmathi Import Rice (2kg) costs RM26.99 per pack. Quite pricey, but I assure you that it’s worth every penny. So if you wanna try out my recipe in the earlier post, be sure to use Jasmine Pusa Gold 1121 Basmathi Import Rice.
The potluck gathering went well and apart from my paella, dessert was a hit too. This melted Orange Mushroom monster cake ( one of the low level monster from the Maplestory game) won the hearts of many. It tastes so sweet and divine despite of being disfigured badly and was definitely everyone’s favourite dessert that night.
Happy faces and crazy, wacky poses after stuffing ourselves with the paella and whatnot from the potluck. 😀 It was indeed a night to remember.
