Jonathan was telling me that I have not made this for him for a long time so we had that for teabreak yesterday. I wasn't satisfied with the minced meat because it was too finely grounded. I should have used those I bought from the market instead of this from Giants. Anyway, although the kids complained about the meat but still ate them all up. Hahaha ...
