Tomato is very popular now. Many people using it to cook rice. Most of them just cook with tomato (too plain) and some added assorted vegetables or meat (too many ingredients, it takes away the tomato taste)

I doesn't want it too plain. So, I added some mozzarella and cheddar cheese on top of the cooked tomato rice and bake. It taste nice and I like the crispy and cheesy top.

● 1 cup rice 
● 1 large tomato
● salt to taste
● olive oil / butter
● water ( lesser(2 tbsps)than the normal measurement)

Served with Grilled Herbs Chicken Drumsticks. Marinated with salt, dried thyme and dried oregano. Hope you like it.

Recently, I like to make bread. Sometimes will make up to 4 to 5 times a week. Love the recipe I posted few weeks ago. With the same recipe, I found that kneading by hand is so much softer and fine compare with mixer.

We already stepped in the month of December. Love this month so much. Everywhere decorated with nice Christmas decorations. I love Christmas! Santa is coming to town soon... Ho Ho Ho...! Made a Christmas Tree Look-a-Like Bread yesterday. Saw this idea last year from a blogger and my aunt made it last few days. So I decided to make 1 to welcome the day.

Early wishes here to everyone ***MERRY CHRISTMAS & HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!***
