We are heading North for 3 Days 2 Nights!

20150130_172030

I showed my friend this picture and she was amazed – in fact said – I packed more food than clothes, though it is just a Cuti-cuti Malaysia trip. Well, since we are going on car – we have our space! LOL!

What do I have in mind:

First day:

  1. Breakfast would be Yoplait blueberry yogurt
  2. Lunch, which I will cook in the morning – steamed leek, corn and buna shimeji mushroom
  3. Teatime would be Yoplait blueberry yogurt, papaya, honeydew
  4. Dinner, which I will cook upon arrival – macaroni and soup – corn, carrot, tomato, celery

Second day:

  1. Yogurt (which I will buy the night upon arrival at our destination) and Massimo bread
  2. Lunch – rice cooker rice – buna shimeji mushroom, celery, tomato, carrot
  3. Teatime would be Yogurt (which I will buy the night upon arrival at our destination)
  4. Dinner – macaroni and soup – leek, Chinese cabbage, celery, water chestnut

Third day:

  1. Yogurt (which I will buy the night upon arrival at our destination) and Massimo bread
  2. Lunch – rice cooker rice – buna shimeji mushroom, Chinese cabbage, tomato, carrot
  3. Teatime would be Yogurt (which I will buy the night upon arrival at our destination)

I have a lot of snacks to keep her entertain during our journey drive to and from:

  1. Raisins
  2. Homemade seaweed spring rolls
  3. Microwave arrowroot chips
  4. Cocoa yogurt cookies
  5. Piggy cheese cookies
  6. Mini mandarin oranges

Of course, I have my Inayou cooker, food jar (I am bringing only the 350ml one), knife, cutting board, dish washer, cutleries, bowls and etc.

Hopefully all goes as planned!

*Yes, I am still “depriving” my girl from outside food – not just because she has not reached 3 years old; but also because she didn’t ask for it plus she is currently experiencing eczema issue.

Ingredients used:

50g unsalted butter (anchor)
2 tbsp Farmers Union Greek Style Natural Yogurt

Mix until it forms a dough (use hand). Shape using biscuit mold. Then decorate with sesame seeds and rainbow truffles. Bake under preheated oven of 170 degree celcius for 15 – 20 minutes.
