Happy Chinese New Year 2010

I just ended my last assignment at the end of Jan so I'm at home and had a lot of time to cook for CNY 2010.

Mom sent me a care package. I got it last week and it didn't last past the weekend.

I got adventurous and made curry puffs for the first time. It turned out very well and this first batch lasted all of 1 day. Good thing I've still got plenty left over and 2 more boxes of puff pastry, I'm planning to make them for my friends on Monday.

They really turned out well. But Old Chang Kee still rules (mostly cos its deep fried)

I also made the usual family Ayam Panggang. (Satay Chicken) I like to make it at least 1-2 times a year and always make extra filling for freezing.

I think it turned out quite well. May not look like much but I'm only cooking for one.

Last thing on my list is banana cake. I don't bake very often, hardly ever. This didn't turn out very well. I had the oven set 15 degrees higher and the outside became a little hard, like a cookie shell. Also the taste is so so. Edible but not quite like banana cake. I guess 3 bananas isn't enough. Ah well, it is edible.

And finally, here's who I'm spending CNY with. He's grown quite a bit.
