I could not fight it. It was running in circles in my mind for almost 5 days in a row now. I have been singing to this Reo Speedwagon song and when I was not humming it, the world somehow took charge singing it for me! Menderita saya. It was playing over the radio station, at the supermarket, on TV. And as much as I tried to fight singing "I Can't Fight..." the more it fought to be sung over and over again.
I tried to delve into the probable causes of this enigma. Questions like below hovered bubbles above my head in between my singing and baking.
1. Is my better other looking more and more like Kevin Cronin, the vocalist of RS then, bushy hair and all? No.
2. Have I formed an attraction to Kevin after many years of listening to his band? Erm No.
3. Am I fighting any kind of feelings right now? Yes many!
4. Am I nearing that time of the month? Yes.
5. Am I craving for something to eat? All the time!
I figured it is the combination of 4 and 5 and a little bit of 3 as well. Honestly I have been on a low sugar diet for almost a week now. My appetite has been on the loose for quite sometime and putting it on a leash came naturally. So the menu was all about greens, fruits, tofu and wholemeal bread. No more fries, crisps, asam jeruk or cookies and ice cream in between instant noodles. I know! horrible eater I was and it doesn't help with me baking cakes and cookies all the time.
After a week of abstinence from all things sweet and fatty, I finally succumbed to this feeling of missing my all time favourite food. The pictures are here to guide you through my gastronomic quick escapade for now. I closed my eyes savouring every bite of the cookies and the wedges and guess what?
It stopped! the song finally came to rest, leaving me in peace...but not long after that, Careless Whisper got turned on. :(
5 big Potatoes unpeeled, cut into wedges.
Coat them with salt, kunyit powder, pepper,lots of corn flour and curry powder.
Fry to a golden perfection.
For the Cheesy sauce.
Double boil 1 tablespoon of butter,
2 tablespoon of mayo,
1 tablespoon of thousand island,
2 tablespoon of lowfat milk(oh sungguh menyihatkan sebab ada lowfat milk, lol!)
2 slices of cheddar cheese or more if you like.
Once everything has turned gooey and creamy, turn of the heat and drizzle over the fried wedges.
