The Asymmetry of Interdependence

It's the weekend yet again and I'm back for my now once a week posts. Friendships, bonds and interdependences are never fair, never symmetrical and I guess there comes a point where you just have to try to balance yourself upon the sharp ridges, concave dips and jagged terrains of relationships .... 

Yesterday was a swell day. Left early in the morning ( or relatively early for a weekend...:P ) to go marketing for goodies to cook for dinner. It's been an almost weekly ritual now for a few friends and I to gather around for dinner every Saturday, good to give a twist to my almost staple diet of sandwiches and salads ... 

Awesome roasted chicken 


Shallots, soy sauce and iceberg lettuce .. ah, tastes like home


And I made bruschetta ! Sauteed chestnut mushrooms, peppers, and garlic toasted on crisp baguette liberally spread with herb butter topped with mozzarella .. see mum, I haven't blown up any kitchens yet :P 


This on the other hand was just plain awful. Had to add lots of lemon juice in it .. 


And that's a wrap folks ! 

I hope you guys had a good weekend !

Yum! Melissa cooked soy sauce chicken the other day - will be in one of my posts coming up. Bacardi? That's liquor. Rum. You're supposed to mix a bit of it with Coke and add a slice of lemon...

@Juney June :
Bruschetta's actually just toasted baguettes with a topping :P Complicated name for a really simple dish actually. Hehe. Sure you can come ! The more the merrier.

@STP:
Ahhh. I wanna look out for that soon! Ya, the 'Bacardi' was actually a premixed cocktail containing Bacardi. With only 4% alcohol it really tasted like bitter orange juice :(

@Reanaclaire :
Hahahaha. Come la ! Then we can bergembira bersama

@Kathy :
