Well I finally got around to making the Cinnamon Crown last week.
It wasn't as sweet as I'd liked because I used caster sugar instead of white sugar.
Still, it came out nice and I had a friend come over for a playdate so it was the perfect opportunity to impress. The recipe makes two of these crowns so she got to take one home to impress her hubby.
This was lunch the other day. I had a hankering for Char Kway Teo.
It's something I grew up loving and my large band of sisters and I would visit Cabramatta every Sunday for this fried rice noodle dish. For some odd reason mum didn't make this at home. Back then it was something like $6.50 a plate and well worth the trip and experience. I used the method presented by Rasa Malaysia and it came out really nice. I used half a bag of rice noodles and fresh vegies. We added some chilli sauce. Yummmm!
The kids are back at school. Awesome. Cos the past three weeks have driven me nuts.
We went to three birthday parties in one weekend!
I gave the eldest one some playdough and this is what she came up with (the frog).
I've been indulging in a few things for the kids that I don't normally do due to household chore excuses, like a trip to the park, picnics in the backyard, making their favourite food, going to the library and letting them sleep in my bed with me!
Do you feel guilty that you don't spend enough time with the kids? I find that staying off the laptop for considerable amounts of time really does help me get things done.
So what next? It's getting rather chilly now so I plan to make a little jacket for my 2.5yr old girl and some flannel pj's for me and the little one. Who isn't going to be so little in a few months!
