Someone in my household is a happy puppy... for the longest time hes been eyeing it and finally yesterday i gave in and got us a brand new toy... well this is our 4th machine so far... the first time we got ourself a coffee machine was 6yrs ago... started off with a simple machine... forgot what the brand name was but we got it in Australia i think... now its sitting in hb's office... the 2nd one was Boncafe.. we got that for free but it broke down within 1 week.. the machine went keput for some reason.. 3rd one was a manual Sunbeam.. bought it fm Harris Scarfe in Adelaide last year... even tho we've been using it on daily basis.. hb has never stopped fm eyeing this fully auto DeLonghi coffee machine...
Sooo yesterday while in Carrefour he saw his fav machine on 55% discount (actual price was $2699)... got it tested and off to the cashier for payment..at first we thought the price was for the demo set ..but is was for a new one! This machine does the grinding of coffee beans and also is capable to do the frothing of milk for cappuccino and latte .. with just a click away.. u can choose if u wanna mild or super strong coffee.. no need to press the coffee powder manually anymore .. no need to worry if i am pressing too hard (we dont want a burn bitter espresso do we?).. hope after this he wont be looking at another one called Jura ( that one can easily cost more than $3000....and its NEVER on discount)
So anyway.. hes been making the queen of the house espresso, latte, cappuccino and machiatto since last night .. will enjoy this moment cos it wont last long.. come next week .. he will be "ordering" me to make him a cup of espresso with a valid reason like.. "oh babe since u make the best espresso.. why dont u make us one??" ... err but wait... he no longer can use that reason cos our new machine is fully auto muuuahahahhaha
Okie dokie.. this is our weekend desert.. super simple desert which u can prepare in under 10 mins.. I dont usually use box mix kinda thing for desert but since hb had bought a box of white wing creme caramel custard a few months ago (dont ask me why he bought it lol)... i had to somehow make use of it bef it expires!
All u need to do is to mix the caramel with warm water... boil milk with custard powder.. pour caramel in a mold.. pour custard mixture onto caramel sauce.. let it sit for a few hours in fridge and ur good to go.. simple and nice.. u can serve it as it is or hv it with a few types of berries..
