Sweet Indulgence At The Marmalade Pantry, more than a year ago. I’m always happy to see her.
Jen came to visit me, making more than an hour of journey by bus, train & bus again.
I’d the intention to prepare a feast fit for a queen, but Jen said she couldn’t stay long as she needed to pick her son up from school. She came after lunch, with a full stomach. A little disappointed, but I did not forget her approaching birthday on Oct 15. Besides a bottle of perfume that I’d arranged for her, I’d to prepare some snacks. That's the least I can do.
I try to remember my friends’ birthdays. Not that I’m running on the lastest memory chip with the highest capacity, but I make it a point to record their birthdates. So I won’t miss any, at least try my best not to. Now with Facebook, things even get easier, I get a reminder just before their birthdays.
Well, I wanted Jen to try the latest cocktail that I’d created for The Cocktail Challenge: "Luxury Haven" Cocktail Is Born!
Then, I prepared Craby Celery Sticks with Bacon Bits. For sure, she loves the sticks as she was asking a lot of questions on the preparation. I wanted to give her something refreshing & crunchy since there was gonna be Deep-fried Prawn Paste Chicken Wings, so the Celery idea was perfect.
Birthday Seafood Galore. But I’ve used up all the custard & coconut cream, so I'd to make do with Ben & Jerry’s Chunky Monkey instead. Oh, how I love playing around with food. I’m a colourful person, so I toy with my recipes accordingly to my mood & the ingredients in my kitchen :)
Despite having a full stomach as she’d said earlier, I was glad Jen emptied all the dishes I’d fixed.
Jen then took out some gifts. OMG! It’s a Pearly Pink Hello Kitty Key Pouch that she’d gotten from Japan!! And……… she hand-made these pretty bookmarks & hp charm with “Shirley” beads on it!
