Shepherd's Pie...and Co.....for Christmas.......

My sister karen had moved into her new apartment this year and she had her first christmas at her new home.....so we sisters and nieces and mum and my dear son H......get to cook some of our speciality for her party ......on Christmas Day.......i cannot deny that we are a family of good cooks if not the best.....! Here are some pictures of what i prepared......more pics in later post 'coz still in iris's camera....

my just out of the oven shepherd's pie before decoration.....


after decoration.......with ketcup + mash potato....son says..christmas tree drawing not nice...so u know i can cook but lousy at drawing......


Another plate of shepherd's pie to fill over 30 plus stomach.....
Those who wants to make this shepherd's pie just click here....

my fried chicken using Chanlilian's recipe here......i marinade it with tumeric...cummin and fennel powder....salt...and some sliced onions.....i marinade another batch of chicken with five-spice powder.......and soya sauce and oyster sauce........

this is the only picture left of the two square tins of delicious walnut and almond nuts chocolate brownies son H made.......the small piece i kept for myself before the rest was taken away to sis's place...... ^-^......sis. karen was in a panic state when her guests had arrived and there were no food on the table...yet the brownies were still baking in the oven after the shepherd's pie......(sorry sis...next time you better learn how to cook instead of spending all your time at Kidscomp...) so the brownies were quickly sent over with the rest of the food with no time for me to shoot some pics.....the brownies were so good that sis. karen stole a small piece to hide in her secret place...before it was all gone...!
I would like those who had tried the above food .....to give some frank comments........just to brighten up my traffic......thanks...i always enjoy seeing people eating the food i cook.........
