I have been baking cakes and cookies non stop since the 2nd week of December. Non stop as in after work, cook dinner and start baking till around 12.
Cupcakes for a school bake sale, Katrina and James's wedding and christening cakes, another christening cake, christmas cakes and tons of pineapple tarts for a CNY carnival, orders and home consumption. Plus kuih bangkit and peanut cookies. Boy, am glad it's over now and I can rest for a bit again. My left wrist is playing up, whether it is due to too much kneading or I sprained it somehow or due to arthiritis. But luckily, will be going to see my consultant for my regular arthiritis check in a couple of weeks, so I can find out what it is. Simple actions like washing hair, washing face, putting on bra - all these hurt my wrist - what can I say - getting old sucks! haha
Anyway back to the topic in hand. Invited some friends to dinner and made the following:
Nonya Chap Chai
Beef braised with Daikon
Deep fried tofu with fish paste
and for dessert - Mango Pudding and a friend made Chocolate Pavlova.
