Shiitake Mushroom & Bacon with Macaroni [ 自製篇 ]

Hi guys, here to share my simple recipe about how to cook macaroni with shiitake mushroom and bacon with you guys! You can get all the ingredients in supermarket such as Cold Storage.
My sibling love this recipe and they never get enough eating this. Thanks to them for being so supportive every time when I'm try to cook for them!

Next time, I shall try to cook the carbonara sauce by myself rather than using the ready made Prego sauce. I use to cook basil pesto previously and it taste so good! ha ha!

- 1 tablespoon of All-Purpose Flour
- 1/2 tablespoon of Salt
- 1/2 tablespoon of black pepper
- 3 slice of Cheese

All of this ingredients can get from Cold Storage Gurney Plaza. You can get the smoked streaky bacon at the non-halal sessions, it cost around RM12.

Wash and slice the mushroom into pieces and chopped a few into tiny crush pieces. 
Same to the bacon, slice into small piece and you may add in some black pepper with it. 
Put a side and ready to use after finish cutting down this two ingredients.

1. Melt the 2 tablespoon of butter in the pans, add in the bacon to cook untill crisp.
2. Add in mushroom slice saute until golden.

3. Use another pot add in a tin of prego together with a cup of drinking water.
4. Add in the chopped mushroom crush pieces and 3 slice of cheese.

Hard Rock Cafe ~ Jalan Batu Feringghi, Penang

A wonderful and memorable dinner night spends with my sweeties in Hard Rock Cafe. Specially thanks to both my sweetie pie Shirley and Jessie for treating us the delicious meals of the night. (Due to some personal reasons, treating a big meal is the punishment for both my sweetie pie.. wakaka..Thanks to two pretty boss of the night!)

We enjoy the night to the max! Friendship shall never die even we're busy working and getting less and less time for meeting up! Let's talk about the foods in Hard Rock Cafe! It's delicious and quality for sure! For girls, recommend for sharing food because the portion are really quite a lot for small eater.

Grilled Salmon Steak RM43.00
An 8 oz filet grilled and topped with herb garlic butter. Served together with roasted garlic smashed potatoes and fresh vegetables. I love the garlic butter and squeeze a little bit lemon into make the salmon taste fresh and yet the butter taste full filling your mouth. Hmmm.. yummy! 

 Grilled Chicken Quesadilla RM20
Grilled Chicken and pineapple, tossed in their own Tangy Barbque sauce with melted jack cheese, and stiffed in a chili dusted tortilla.Served together with the fresh guacamole, freshly made Hard Rock salsa and sour cream. Taste a bit like roticanai but with pizza ingredient and cheese wrap inside. I advice this need to be eat first when it is still hot.

Hickory-Smoked Bar-B-Que Chicken RM32
Our famous Sounthern Style half chicken, rubbed grilled, and basted with the authentic Hickory Bar-B-Que sauce. Served together with fries, ranch beans and cole slaw.

Twisted Mac, Chicken & Cheese RM35
A grilled chicken breast tops off twisted cavatappi pasta tossed in a lightly spiced 3 cheese sauce, with garlic, roasted red peppers and parmesan parsley bread crumbs. 
Served with garlic toast. I love chicken breast most of the time so this will be my favorite dish of the day but the cheese are too dry. (p/s: maybe we taken too longer time on capture photos)

Honey-Citrus Grilled Chicken Salad RM34
 Fresh cut greens tossed with sweet red onions, grilled Cajun chicken and tossed with our honey citrus dressing. Topped with fresh orange segments, spiced pecans, red pepper strips, sweetened dried cranberries and blue cheese crumbles.
Cranberry and blue cheese are my favorite! A thumb up for this salad! Sweet and sour which pretty much suitable order as a appetizer. Yum Yum!

Hard Rock Nachos RM37 
(Super big portion! Big enough to share!)
Corn tortilla chips layered with homemade queso, piled high topped with monterey jack and cheddar cheeses and seasoned pinto beans. Served together with sour cream, green onions and a side of freshly made Hard Rock Salsa. 

Jumbo Combo RM50
Including  Santa Fe Spring Rolls, Chicken Wings, Onions Ring, Potato Skins and Tupelo Chicken Tenders, Served with 4 different sauces for mixing and matching. 
I love the potato skins and chicken wings. FYI, chicken wings is slightly spicy. 

Apple Cobbler RM20
Warm and Crispy! Made from scratch using a secret recipe.Mix the ripe and juicy apples with the finest spices and bake it until golden brown. 
Recommend for apple pie lover! This is a bit over sweetness for me! But it's delicious to meet with a vanilla ice cream! Cold and Hot mix in your mouth!

 Mud Pie RM35 [MUST TRY!]
Cookies Crust filled with a heavenly concoction of coffee and chocolate ice cream topped with hot fudge and crunchy almond flakes. This is super duper nice! I'm craving of it right now. Taste heavenly! It worth every single cents you pay! Yummy !

It's look crazy rite? 5 girls can settle all of this?? 
As I remember, we just left some of the dessert and the jumbo combo only! 
Awesome girls!! Few more hours gym time is needed in the following weeks!
