Six days, another six days and I shall hop on my flight on my way back to Malaysia for Chinese New Year. Never mind the unbearable coach seat (aka Economy class), 20 hours of eyes-wide-open (I can’t sleep on the plane) and unappetizing in-flight food, I can hardly wait for the day to come.
I am brimming with excitement. I think I am overly excited that I got myself sick. I am anxious to see my beloved family again, and, of course, I am looking forward to the mini Malaysian floggers get-together. But I have a problem. Not a material one, I reckon. As a matter of fact, it’s a very fun one that stimulates lots of creativity. I need to clear out my fridge before I leave. I have lots of food sitting in the fridge–mostly leftover ingredients that I have used for my previous recipes–lots of them, little things here and there. I have to make use of them to make something good.
Rummaging through my fridge, I found some random stuff such as peanut butter, butter, eggs, raisins, another sheet of Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry, spring roll skins(!), sesame seeds, frozen shrimp, etc. I pondered for a while and came up with two brilliant and beautiful cooking ideas. Here is one of them that I just couldn’t stop oooh’s-and-ahhh’s when I first saw these Peanut Butter Tartlets out of my oven. Too cute, too adorable.
Hey Cutie, does my blog look good in this? I think it does. :)
