Pita bread is that little neat, roundish bread that looks it isÂ like half-cooked due to its pale colour.Â I bought them from the bakery, RM2.50 for five pieces of wholemeal pita (not sure why it looks so white though).Â On its own, there isn’t much taste and pita has a strong ‘sourish’, yeasty smell.
What I like about pita is the ability to make a pocket in between so that I can stuff things inside.Â This way it makes a neat package for messy toddlers.
I bought some honey roasted ham, fresh from the deli, expensive stuffs, that is.Â Hahaha, I always find hams and other cured meatÂ really expensive and don’t always purchase them.Â Anyway, all these meats aren’t that good for health in the long run.Â For the price of three pieces of ham, I can buy a whole katti (600grams) of fresh pork already.Â Â Nevertheless, it is nice to have ham and cheese sandwichesÂ once in a while.
I cut the pita right in the middle, stuffed in a slice of cheese and ham.Â BTW, these expensive cuts ham is less salty that those squarish, cheaper varieties.Â Moreover, it is a whole leg of pig and not some minced up meat.Â They are fresh sliced and I notice that the butcher usually remove the first piece of the ham (discarded) and give us the rest of them.Â So, I usually eat them fresh from the butcher without frying.Â Otherwise, remember to heat through those meats to avoid food poisoning.
After stuffing them, I popped the pita into the toaster to get a crunchy outer layer.Â The cheese melted a bit and yummy….However, counting the cost of one pita (50 sen), one piece of cheddar cheese (50 sen) and one piece of ham (RM2), it is not that cheap, no?Â RM3 for one.
Anyway, my toddler loves it and finished the whole pita bread with ham and cheese all by himself. Â No leftovers like I was expecting.Â I didn’t even get a bite!
