Sorry For the long Absence

Aiyo, it's not that I haven't been baking, in fact, more than ever before. So much so, since it's always the same old things, recurring orders, I don't even have time to experiment with new stuff, such as the Lemongrass Mango Tart recipe which Boolicious sent to me. The macerated fruits for my catholic fruit cake are still in the tub, and with Christmas just around the corner, looks like I won't be serving matured fruit cake. Probably for Chinese New Year then.

All these grand plans of making gingerbread cookies, decorated, are quickly dissipating before my very eyes, and the irony is, I have more cookie cutters now than I have ever owned. Oh well, as people remind me, I'm lucky that I can actually earn some money from a hobby....most people spend money on their hobbies.

Venetia

HAHAHAH, venetia dear, i was wondering if anyone would pick that up. its actually the recipe for fruitcake that i got from a cookbook published by the Catholic church, (my mother is catholic), and the recipe looked like a delicious fruitcake we've been ordering from our ex neighbour, who's also catholic, hence, i surmised that it must be a catholic fruitcake. hope that doesnt sound too blasphemous.

snowie said...

your entire post! :)

busy getting paid for hobby, no time to try new things, no time to bake fruit cake (for which i've bought the ingredients, though notchet macerate), no time to use new cookie cutters!

boo_licious said...

wahhh, u and tonixe having "love affair" since you are keeping each other in suspense? Must organise second meeting, sounds like Jackson is free already.

fatboybakes said...

well, i think the suspense is one way, tonixe seems to know who i am. though i cant fathom how, ...i mean, unless you are a police sketch artist, how does one recognise a chin.
