Nanana Split

You see, it's like banana split. Except without the banana. Neither is there ice cream. No, it's not a desert at all. Hmm, so it's NOT like banana split. It does have a split, performed by sausages. Sausages are great. You can grill them, bake them, steam them, fry them, boil them. If you're insane, you can even eat it raw. You know one time, at band camp....


My thoughts are severely muddled. Haven't had much sleep these few days. My nights are spent working on assignments and stomping bugs, and days are wasted spent attending an 'express' not-as-elementary-as-expected course on Computational Chemistry which has effectively Focked up my sanity.

Let me start over.

The following is another episode of "Pre-shopping day: throw together whatever you have!"

Meet the sausage.

He has been grilled, first under moderate heat so that it's evenly cooked, then under high heat to brown and thicken the skin. Poor dude is then split length-wise.

Mr. Sausage, meet Ms. Mayo and Mdm. Ketchup.

The threesome is joined by a group of toppings pre-fried in butter. They are, in no particular order, chopped red and green peppers, corn, bits of carrot, and garlic.

Their conversation ended up somewhat cheesy, and so I spiced things up by cracking on some fresh ground pepper.

Grilled them for a bit....

.. and we get a nice brown crust.

The Nanana Split!!

.. and the customary close-up with shallow DOF

The party started off dull, till the Mad Dog arrived to blow our brains out.

This post was brought to you by the letters N, A, and by the technique of Born-Open_Hernia Approximation.

omg. right now, i am only wishing for 2 things, someone to whip me up my own nanana split and the other thing - that no one saw that gaping, half salivating look on my face as i scrolled through the post.

It looks much more appetizing in the final picture than the steps preceding.

A teacher asked her students to name fruits starting with the alphabet N. First student said "Nangka". Second student said "Nenas". Third student said "Nona". And it continues on. When the turn came to the last student, having nothing else to say, he shouted "Nanana!"

Wow! Nanana Split should be trademarked to Shawn Chin. Looks extremely delish and fantastic idea as always.

sunny: in that case, maybe i should post more often when i'm sleep-deprived, drunk or high on caffein :)

cheng sim: Yeah. It does look like pizza, with the crust made from meat! :)
Maybe i can put on some toppings made from bread, and call it "terbalik pizza" or "inverse pizza" or [pizza]^-1 (in matrix form for the computational math geeks). Heheh..

foodcrazee, anonymous: thanks :D

chloe: Gaping look on face while in front of computer dangerous woh.. ppl might think you surfing pr0n online.

scarlet: As with most of my dishes. LOL. In fact, the final product doesn't even look that good in real life (just like actors/actresses in movies).

cowie: Ahhh.. so that's why the work "nanana" sounds so familiar. It's from that joke. From that singaporean comedian group some 10 years back. They have a whole bunch of funny songs as well.
I believe it went "nangka", "nona",..... NUNIAN, NANANA, NANGOESTEEN!

boo: Dunno whether can trademake that phrase or not, since the word "nanana" ciplak wan. hehee..
