It’s Monday (January 16, 2023)

Hey, happy Monday to you!

Some things last week:

Another very rainy week. I think we only had one day where there was no rain. It rained so hard last night that I kept waking up!

Rainy days are good for baking, and since the Lunar New Year is coming up on Sunday, I decided to make some peanut cookies (the ones on the left) and some pork floss and sesame cookies. Both these cookies are the melt-in-your-mouth type of cookie, so they’re pretty much bite-sized.
Rainy days also mean soupy noodle cravings. We went to have Taiwanese beef noodles, as well as xiaolongbao. Unfortunately, there were a couple of customers in the restaurant who were coughing away! So we ate quickly!



Farm City – Novella Carpenter


Last night, watched the Penguins documentary on Disney Plus with the kids. It was really funny.


Started listening to Hello, Molly! by Molly Shannon

Eating and Drinking:

I had homemade sourdough toast and a big mug of coffee


The husband has asked if I could make a pandan cake as I haven’t made one in a while. It’s a light chiffon cake flavoured with extract from pandan leaves (something grown in Southeast Asia), and coconut milk. Of course lots of eggs too since it’s a chiffon cake.
