I volunteered to prepare dinner for 40 pax of sixteen years old teenagers this Saturday night.Ã‚ Two of my church friends are preparing nasi tomato and ayam masak merah.Ã‚ So, my task is to prepare some other accompanying dishes.Ã‚ They are Catholics but consist of Indian, Eurasian and Chinese.Ã‚ As what I understand,Ã‚ most Indians, irrespective of their religions, don’t take pork.
I planÃ‚ to cook Chinese stir fry vegetables, like mixture of broccoli/cauliflower/carrots/mushroom/yellow peppers which goes well with most teenagers. I will probably use some chicken meat or shrimps for the flavour.Ã‚ Since, these are hungry, growing teens, maybe I will make an additional spicy, tomyam, squid balls.Ã‚ These are dishes that I am very familiar with cooking, doesn’t cost much and taste ok even not that piping hot. I have to cook at home bring it to Tanjung Bungah.
My eldest son is staying at the College General with the rest of his peers for a confirmation camp/motivation weekend.Ã‚ We, the parents, are taking turns to provide the teens with their breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner and supper for the 3 days, 2 nights camp.Ã‚ It is going to be fun for us parents too because we get chip in our cooking skills to provide them with home cooked meals.
So, folks, any other suggestions for something that is easy to prepare, economical and goes with nasi tomato?Ã‚ I think some pineapple/cucumber salad would be nice but I don’t dare attempt doing something I have never done before.Ã‚ Recipes, anyone?Ã‚ What does teens like?
