As I was making my way back to the apartment, towards the end of the stretch of stalls, $20 for a box of strawberries! Not the best in the world but good enough... I was very tempted and so I bought bought hehehe
Like I said, they weren't the best strawberries but they do look and taste good enough. Then I start to wonder... eat it like that? Nah~~~ And so l googled it... everything seems so complicated! You can either make a dessert or jam... to turn these strawberries into some form of dessert, pastry and oven is a must... nope, I only have a simple microwave and a convection stove, a pot, a sauce pan and a pan. Jam? I'm gonna have to need to buy a glass jar and then the cooking and bottling and blah blah blah... bottom line is, it's a lot of work.
I guess just the normal whipped cream on that should do it. So I googled it again... lucky me, I found the best anwer: how to make whipped cream from scratch (I just know Adrian wouldn't appreciate those that came from a bottle).
And so I went out hunting for cream and a whisk, at just about 5pm, 2 hours before Adrian get home and I have budgeted it to be just about $30. I got them both at $30. Although I had to look in 3 different shops for a reasonably priced whisk, so that I don't blow my budget hehehe
I managed to get back to the apartment just before 6, had the air-con on full swing, started cooking our main course, Chicken Chasseur. Just about 20 minutes before Adrian got back. Then I started whisking, whilst the chicken's being cooked. It was really hard work (arm exercise!) but when you see it rise, man, it was wonderful!! WAHAHAHA
Yup, we stuffed ourselves, after the Chicken Chasseur (that I cooked, as instructed by Adrian), we stuffed ourselves with the dessert. I just chucked all the strawberry cubes into the whipped cream, mixed them up and then just served in the sauce pan. And it was fantastic! And I feel good about Adrian being able to have semi-proper dessert after dinner -- his mom spoiled him!!
This is how the saucepan looked... felt so much like licking it!!
