|this galette really tastes better than it looks!|
Ok.. losing weight to fit into a cheongsam is a lost battle.
Not when there's so much temptation and feasting for the eyes with the many yummy-licious CNY goodies posted online! And well.. some pineapple tarts and mini fried shrimp wanton rolls may have already found its way to the tummy and thighs too ^^||!
Anyway, moving on.. ^^
I don't bake CNY cookies. That's aunt's domain. But that doesn't mean I don't drool after the many CNY bakes posted ^^ There have been many times where I've been tempted to run into the kitchen to bake a batch of cookies! But in the end, common sense prevailed.. I'm no cookie monster (and papa pig's watching! ^^||). And so I shall continue to feast and lust with my eyes, over others' (I mean you, of course! ^^) tempting delicious CNY bakes and dishes. ^^
Since I've been taking it really, really easy and not baked for weeks (aren't you happy, papa pig?), I offered to bake gougères and nami's japanese cheesecake for big pig's sleepover today ^^. And I threw in a super-duper easy country apple galette (recipe by jacques pépin) last minute since I remembered I had to clear off some apples to make way for sweet tangerines ^^.
So I'm pretty happy and satisfied ^^ especially since knowing the boys enjoyed it all! ^^
Meanwhile, I'm saving tummy space for all the new year goodies coming my way! ^^
