:p I regret most of the content/jokes here. 40% of which are cringe-worthy. This is not a blog that I'd want my nephews/nieces ...or anyone to read, actually. but it's still up here because of sentimental reasons. The blog took a lot of time to build & I just don't have the heart to delete it. If you do find the jokes funny - I'm happy to know that they're entertaining. Otherwise, here's a more "proper" one http://coffee-choc.blogspot.com ...prob not as funny, mainly about chocolates and coffee and food & music

D-I-Y Heart Sh@peD PumpKiN bOwL ;pp hehe

This yummy & cute gourmet dish requires only a microwave, an oven & fresh Kiwi or Aussie ingredients - which are available anywhere in the world, except that they cost 1/2 less the price here in Auckland ;)
Choose a juicy pumpkin with a nice "heart-shaped" hole in the middle.
Put it in a microwave dish & cook for 20 mins.
Scoop out the seeds
(You may keep the seeds aside for boiling broth cuz pumpkin seeds are rich in minerals :) and they're good for preventing prostate cancer & Erectile Dysfunction... Not that I have to worry about ever having ED. Being a girl is as easy as being a pumpkin. You probably just need a nice heart-shaped... Oh, I'm sorry. That's a bit too rude aye? ;p)

I digressed...
Anyway, put bits of chicken meat or whatever else you wish to have inside the pumpkin hole

Top it up with a generous amount of good Kiwi or Aussie cheddar cheese :)))

I'd recommend Bega Strong & Bitey Vintage & Bega Light - for the health conscious.
This is to reduce the amount of fat & yet retain the wonderful fresh cheddar cheese flavour.

You're most welcome to use the normal cheddar blocks if you wish and be assured that the recipe won't go wrong
Guess wot, these cost NZD$1.99 at Foodtown :)) *grin*
In Malaysia, Thailand and Singapore, Bega is almost like a luxury item - probably about NZD$5-6 for the same size
You can choose to put it in the fridge to be baked later...
Or you can bake it rightaway :)
- for about 15-20 mins on 200-250 deg. Celcius, depending on how "brown" you want the cheese to be.
I love mine slightly browned :), just like the the Strawberry-Pumpkin-Potato-Tomato-Onion-Broccoli-Beetroot Quiche

You can't possibly go wrong with this dish!!!
It's wayyy tooo eassyy

But if it does, go wrong, don't get disheartened ;)
 ...shit happens aye
