butter's cookbook 1- cheese macoroni

experienced this before? you came home in the afternoon, all alone in the house. and you felt so damn HUNGRY.....yet instant noodles disgust you...... i tried this at home. it came out surprisingly NICE!!!! haha..

a handful of macoroni
2-3 crab filament sticks
2 slices of cheddar cheese
oregano/ rosemary
salt and pepper
mixed herbs

1. Boil macoroni in a large pot of water. Add in 2 teaspoons of salt.

2. Drain, and set aside.

3. cut crab-filament sticks into cubes..

4. place it on ya macoroni. im abit finicky here..
would try my very best to make sure that
all the red coloured sides of the filament sticks face upwards..
so that my dish would be more presentable.

5. top with 2 slices of cheddar cheese,
you might wanna replace them with
parmesan, mozzarella... etc.

6. prepare to steam your macoroni+crab filament+cheese
by placing them on a rack or perforated pan
in a saucepan and add water to the saucepan.
The water collects below the rack or perforated pan,
and the food remain above--and out of--the liquid.
As for my case, i used the rice cooker,
adding some forks in it to support my plate of macoroni.

7. placing the plate on top of those forks
8. when it's done, scoop out the steamed macoroni,
your cheese melted into creamy texture at this stage.

9. sprinkle some oregano, mixed herbs, pepper to taste.
( you might wanna add in other fragrant spices like rosemary, cinnamon etc. )

VOILA~~ my nice and simple lunch!!
( too bad all the crab filament turned upside-down. hmm.... )
time for chomp-chomps!! :)
p.s. my camera phone not great enough to capture
the tantalizing appeal of this (@.*)
