Last Thursday was the last day of school for academic year 2012/2013. As for the KG kids, their end of year party theme for this year was The Princesses and the Pirates…. so apa lagi… another visit to the Toy World Store lah hehehe. As I told you guys before, parents here are really crazy about dressing up their kids for this type of event, so if you are “I don’t care type”, then your son/daughter will be the odd one during this party. For the kid’s sake… beli je lah…anyway bukan susah pun nak cari costumes here, just siapkan duit je, macam macam boleh dapat hahaha.
The best thing about the kid party here is you do not need to crack your head to think about what to bring… the teacher will send a letter letting you know what to bring to the party and how many. This year the letter said “Please send your child with 12 small cartons of juice”… lega babe hehehe. Anyway their normal party food here tak susah, can easily be bought from the bakeries such as doughnuts, cupcakes, cookies and sandwiches… tak de lah nak kena bawak fried noodles, nasik lemak or what not…. and the quantities pun tak banyak. They even discourage the parents from bringing food other that the requested one… senang kan?
Okay, recipe for today is a hit in my household… kids love them a lot. I love it simply because it requires less cooking for me which means more time to do other stuff like watching TV or reading books hehehe. This recipe was taken from Modern Mrs Cleaver blog. Happy cooking!
- 1/2 cup Hoisin Sauce
- 3/4 cup Plum Sauce
- 1/2 cup Soy Sauce
- 1/3 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons Five Spice
- 1 tablespoon minced Ginger
- 1/3 cup Honey
- 1 bunch Scallions, finely diced white and green part
- 6 cloves Garlic, minced
- 40 chicken wings
- Place all ingredients except the chicken wings into a large bowl.
- Measure out 1 cup of the mixture and set aside for basting.
- Add the chicken and toss to coat well.
- Cover and place in fridge for a few hours AT LEAST but overnight is best!
- Preheat your oven to 190C . Add the chicken to a roasting pan and drizzle “just a bit” of the sauce over top. We want them to get sticky, not steam in sauce.
- Roast for 45 minutes, basting every 10-15 minutes. Toss them with tongs a few times while they bake to make sure you baste all sides evenly.
- Sprinkle with diced scallions and toasted sesame seeds (I skip this simply because my kids do not fancy them).
