How was your weekend?
Ours was busy busy! Are you surprised? It was a good busyness though :) Saturday I spent all day baking with the ingredients star anise, ginger, mango, and pineapple! Who would have thunk that flavor combination to be so amazing?! Refreshing, light, and perfect for the warmer Spring weather we're having once again. Yes, the recipe for what it made will be posted later on(it was a success at the party we went to the following night!)
Saturday night the hubbie and I tried to sneak off to a little movie date- we went to see The Three Stooges. :( We were so disappointed! I'm sorry if I'm breaking anyone's heart here...but seriously friends, it was no bueno. My husband is a huge Three Stooges fan- he grew up on old re-runs of the show and as an adult still laughs and enjoys every episode he watches. So, needless to say when we found out there would be a movie- we were going to see it.
The actors playing Larry, Moe, and Curly- great job! The movie's plot, filming, other actors, color (said by my husband), time period- LAME-SKIS. I was bored from minute one...my husband lasted another 30 minutes...we ended up walking out mid-movie :(
Good news: maybe by me giving it such bad reviews you'll go in with low expectations and actually enjoy it! Let's hope!!
Sunday we missed church because we had an early dinner date at our friends' house. Indian food was the theme (hence my dessert ingredient choices) and let ME JUST SAY- IT WAS FANTASTIC!!! We showed up with a pot of my coconut curry sauce and dessert- they supplied rice, lentils, tandoori chicken, and eggplant! Holy moly was it good. Oh, and yes...lots and lots of naan. "MmMmmm Naaaaaaaaan" <-- said in Homer Simpson voice. I have never been so full in my whole life. ...Well maybe I have...but not in a while. I was STUFFED. Good times indeed!
Then yesterday (haha) I was a big ball of sick. No, not from the food. I'm 100% sure. I won't go into details but let me just say...I was a walking zombie. My poor husband.
Today- I'm feeling a lot better! Yay!!! Like, A LOT better. It's amazing what 24 hours will do. Good thing too. There's lots of edible decorations I need to get started on. More specifically, edible paint palettes, bows and Sanrio inspired decs! Oh! Which reminds me- those cuties shown above? They were just mailed out a few days ago and I couldn't help but put a picture up. They were cute!!!! Shipped out together, destination California- a little girl's birthday cupcakes for her classmates at school. FUN!!!
These guys below? JUST finished for another mama and her sweet little one's upcoming big day! We were requested to make Hello Kitty's bow purple because it was the birthday girl's favorite color ;) You got it!
Don't worry, you can get Keroppi or Hello Kitty toppers yourself too! ;)
So that's it for us! That's our weekend recap. A good one I'd say, even despite the day of sickness.
