Don is back for a few days and I promised him paella, so the pan was put to good use immediately. Went to the usually fish stall for prawn but none was available. Was resigned to cook the dish with only chicken but wait...
...there is this last chorizo sausage left in the fridge!! Now if only I could find some rabbit's meat...Used the same recipe but just added in the sliced and lightly fried Spanish sausage. Went so well that I didn't even get to snap a picture of the end result! Another reason I didn't get a picture of the cooked paella was because I was too busy eating these...
Mui Fong brought a whole bag of these jungle durians and they were just the best...ever. The flesh was sooo smooth and with such sweet aroma. It was like eating the creamiest peanut butter and the best smoothest chocolate you can imagine, even K who is not so crazy about durian gave the thumbs up. This fruit season, for Mui Fong and me, has been all about jungle and local durians. We are boycotting the genetically engineered species!
Note: The man who owns the tree that bears these gorgeous fruits wants an acknowledgement in the blog. This tree is an inheritance from his father which he called 'Special Durian Merah'. He is Philip Botindal of Kg. Togop, Tamparuli.
Thank you, Philip!
