Last year, I found out too late about the scrumptious factor of Cadbury's Caramel Creme Eggs...This year, I am ready for them...
Hello, my lovelies!
On a slightly different note, I think my mother lives in fear that I don't eat (because I'm too lazy to cook) and therefore, will significantly malnourish my kid, and I think my grandmother probably thinks that we survive on hamburgers and fries.
I have to be honest here, if it weren't for my daughter, both will probably be right. But again, I'm hellbent on ensuring that she grows up to be more than a "meat and potatoes" girl. So I have to say that I've been quite ambitious (for me) when I do make it over to the Chinese grocery store.
Never in a million years would I have thought that I would have bothered making Char Chai Tau Kueh. I'm not sure that I was even that much of a fan of it. However, years away from the mamak stalls and the pasar malam have made me appreciate ALL types of hawker-style food.
Although, again, if I'm honest, Ms Lily, and probably my mother and my grandmother, would shake their heads if they were aware of my substitutions and omissions of the recipe. Hey, I gotta work with what I got!
