Joan Cooked Sausages 5

joan cooked sausages 5
Kelly's Chicken Vienna Gold with Gardenia's Hotdog Buns, one topped with cheddar, the other topped with yellow mustard.

Life's simplest pleasures, tucking into a nice warm hotdog and sitting in front of the telly and just waste time. I seem to have visited almost all notable hotdog joints in Singapore, and I'm thinking if I should go into trying out all the different brands of frozen and chilled sausages that are on sale in the supermarket, then perhaps come to a conclusion which brand of sausages is the best. haha~

Anyway, the highlight today isn't sausages, which is quite a surprise. Today I'd like to introduce my beloved cake knife!

I had a normal knife and my cake knife cut each of my hotdog buns, and look at the vast different in the texture of the cut.
my cake knife
The one with the normal kitchen knife has a very coarse texture at the cut lines, as shown in the top left hand picture, which the cake knife sliced the bread so smoothly seen in the top right hand corner. Yup, that's my cake knife there~

Erm, even though the cake knife does very beautiful cutting, I seldom use it. I seldom have the chance to cut breads and cakes, and most of the times cutting cakes we use the plastice free knifes rather than my more professional cake knife, I don't know why. Perhaps maybe probably is because the plastic knife can be thrown away after using and need not undergo the tedious process of washing. haha~

Oh, and I'll be heading to Sarawak tomorrow so I won't be blogging next week, but I don't think I'll be missed since my blogging pace and slowed down a great deal. If you want to look at more food and/or you miss me too much, here's my food post on my CNY dinners, V Day dinner, meals in Malacca. It's a very long post with lots of pictures. Have fun~

Blog Filler

I know I'm not blogging frequently enough, I've two sets of pictures in my Flickr waiting for me to blog about but I haven't the time to do so. sucks... This semester's worse than I thought.

From Kawaii Not, a little laugh I really like, and it also has a hot dog joke there.

Hope this blog filler can last me until I've the time to blog more. Two presentations in a week, one field trip to Malacca, it has been really a buzz for me. Until I get back from Malacca, see ya then~

Hip Diner USA

This is a new joint from the people of Billy Bombers. With their revamped menu, I decided to try it out, especially the new sausages that they were touting.

Snail Chicken and Cheese, $12.90 from Hip Diner USA Bugis Junction branch. It comes with a snail sausage, a cheese sausage served on a hotplate with mash potatoes and corn on a cob.

There's the top view picture and the side view picture. Honestly, if you see them separately, which would you choose to order? haha... The nice manipulations of camera angles.

The sausages were nice yummy American styled sausaged despite them using the term 'wurst' in their menu. The cheese sausage was fat, juicy and cheesy but a tad short. The snail sausage was unfortunately rather spicy which I didn't realise until I cut to see the insides. There you can see the specks of chilli, or spices, or whatever you call them.

For the price, it was pretty good and filling. And were were given vouchers to use for our next visit. But I don't think I'll be having sausages again the next time round. haha

Home Made Sausages

I really wish I did this myself, but no such luck, here's another link off the internet. I've been so busy to find the time to edit my pictures, so more on the sausages I've eaten in a but.

Home Made Sausages
Follow the step by step proceedings on how to make sausages at home, from the grinding of meat to the stuffing of minced meat into the sausage skin. It's even possible to add in whatever additional flavourings such as cheese and apple.

And after that just grill them and eat them, I'm sure it would taste really good, after all that tough work!
