Last weekend was a long weekend, one where Princess and I had done everything we normally do on weekends. We've spent time with her parents, had meals with my brother, watched a movie, watched lots of TV and done lots of reading so much that we had almost run out of things to do.
So on Saturday afternoon we were all just lying around at home trying to think of what to do. All our friends were all busy so we had no one to meet up with (or possibly none of our friends wanted to hang out with us. Maybe we embarrass them in public with the stupid things we do).
Then we were thinking of going out at night for drinks and all but again we had no one to meet up with. So Princess and I started talking about how we had become.... a typical boring couple. Gone were the days where we had loads to do on weekends. Lots of friends houses to go to, lots of drinking at night and dancing in clubs. Lots of those kind of stuff.
Now all we do is stay at home, watch TV, read books and entertain one another by doing stupid things like hiding behind a door when the other walks into a room. Just before we were about to succumb to boredom I decided to take matters into our own hands.
We thought of doing some really random things on impulse. Princess and I come up with all sorts of ideas for things like that. Like one idea was to go to the airport, take the next flight to Phuket or something and go for a couple of days.
Other simpler ideas we came up with was to go look at the showrooms of new apartments and check out the show units (pretending to be potential buyers... you know a newly wed couple looking for a home to buy).
Trouble with that gig though was that me and Princess often look and dress so young, they'll probably chase us out of the showroom or ask us "Are you both lost? Where's mummy and daddy?"
Last Saturday though we decided to do something that could've gone really wrong. We decided to bake or make something. When thinking of the possibilities of what we could make we got ourselves excited but not nearly as excited as when we thought about the possibility of opening our own bakery some day. "Timothy & Audrey's Leetle Bakery!" (Yah I know we get too far ahead of ourselves sometimes).
Phew... right after we fantasized about that we got to work immediately.
We googled around and we found an easy recipe to make Oreo Truffles on this website! All we needed was cream cheese, chocolate and lots of Oreos. Best part was that it was easy to make. We didn't even have to use the oven and risk burning down my place. So we hopped into the car and drove to the nearest supermarket to buy the ingredients.
An hour later we came home, had dinner first and started work on Project Oreo Truffles.
First we had to break up the Oreo cookies.
Then once they've all become powder-like, we put it the cream cheese to mix it all around.
Then we melt the Hershey's chocolate chips we melt to make chocolate.
And this is where most of the time is spent. Rolling it into little balls and swirling it in the chocolate.
After that you sprinkle any of the leftover "Oreo-powder" on it and put it in the fridge to harden.
The whole process took us 90 minutes though I think we just sucked and a pro would've been able to do it sooner.
You know what else a pro would've been able to do?
This is how the Oreo Truffles were supposed to look like.
This is how our Oreo Truffels looked like.
I was shocked at the difference! One looked like how truffels was supposed to look and ours looked like... pieces of tar you pick up from Jalan Kuching.
Nevertheless I brought it to work for the Nuffies to try and they all loved it. HAH!
Don't judge a book by its cover (or a truffel by its outer chocolate layer).
Then again you can't really get it wrong when it comes to the taste right? I mean you are after all just putting the exact same things into a bowl and mixing it together. Haha! No matter!!! That was still Timothy & Audrey's first truffles! Next we might actually bake something.
Stand back world!!! More ugly but nice food coming your way from Tim & Audrey!
