Hey guys! What’s up, it’s KK. Welcome to 5 Weeks of Food! I am so happy that I am finally doing this for you! You might remember me saying in my last post that I would try to do food from around the world, however I thought it would be great to start the event with a simple British classic… strawberries and cream! Some people might think that its boring and that I could’ve come up with something better. Well if that’s what’s going on in your head right now, go and find another recipe to read! 😊 Instead of using double cream, I will whisk it to turn it into whip cream. Also, I will be adding melted chocolate. You don’t have to use whip cream or chocolate but that’s what I’m going to do! Without further delay, let’s get into it!
You will need a:
. Small bowl
. Spoon/ spatula
. Sauce pan
. Serving bowl
. Sieve (optional)
. Whip cream
. Dark chocolate
. Icing sugar (optional)
- If you are making whip cream from scratch, pour some double cream into a bowl. Whisk until fluffy and light!
TIP: Make sure it has no lumps!
- To melt the dark chocolate, fill a saucepan half way with water and put it on the hob.
- Place a small bowl on top filled with pieces of chocolate.
- Stir the chocolate while it melts. After, add a little chunk of butter and let it melt with the chocolate.
- To get the melted chocolate at a nice consistency, slowly pour a bit of leftover double cream into the bowl.
- Now stir!
- Pour the whip cream into a bowl and place the strawberries inside or around it. Next, drizzle the chocolate on top.
- If you would like to, sprinkle some icing sugar on top with a sieve.
- Enjoy!!! 😊
I hope you enjoyed this classic recipe and that it wasn’t too boring!
So that’s it for today! AU REVOIR
The final result Me melting the chocolate
Hi guys! What’s up? The first thing I want to say is… IT’S SUMMER!!!!!!! Ok; now is the time when everybody is in flip flops and are basking in the sun. I don’t mind doing that, I mean I LOVE wearing flip flops and I think it’s relaxing to go out in the sun. But there’s an issue for me… ☹
Lately, whenever I’ve been going out in the warming sun my skin begins to get EXTREMELY itchy because of my Eczema. For those of you out there who do not know what it is, it’s a skin illness and you have dry skin and is always itchy. Sometimes it can be major or it’s not so much of a big deal. And here’s another reason. I do not tolerate heat well, for me even London is ABSOLUTELY scorching!!! I always feel fainty! And last of all … (this may break most of people’s hearts who are reading this so I am going to bring it easy on you)… I HATE SUMMER!!!!!!!!! Also, I have a perfectly good reason to hate it, in summer I am more, sick than I am in winter.
Any way enough complaining about summer! Let’s go onto the main two reasons I chose to talk to you today. As a lot of you may know, this month for Muslims it is Ramadan. It is the month of fasting. Fasting is when you do not drink or eat from sunrise to sundown. As I am a child I am no obliged to do it, however I decide to do some of the day. Well, that’s all you need to know!
The second thing I want to talk to you about is McDonald’s! I am sure this subject will get you all jumping up on your feet. On Thursday, my mum and I were in Greenwich as we were on our way to my guitar lesson. There is a McDonald’s there and it was an INCREDIBLY hot day, therefore we decided to buy a Raspberry Ripple Ice Cooler. It was SCRUMPTIOUS! A couple days after, we realised we could make our own ice cooler! Here is a small recipe:
– Vanilla ice cream
– Ice cubes
– A berry flavoured squash or syrup
Put the ice cream in with the ice. Blend for a bit. Pour the squash or syrup into the blender and carry on blending. Blend until it is like a sort of liquid. Pour into a glass and enjoy! 😊
So that’s it for today! AU REVOIR!!!
P.S I want you to say happy birthday to three people in my class who are Lewis, Jayvan and Anthony whose all birthdays were recent! 😊
