This past week was a very hectic week for me. It was one of the weeks when a lot of things were due consecutively during the week. I am glad everything turned out well.
Since Valentine's day was in the middle of my busy days, we didn't do anything special. Well...first of all, hubby doesn't follow the main stream, those who make Valentine's day a special day, so I didn't expect anything that day. Now that I think about it, I don't really care about Valentine's day anymore. I am at the point where I am content and grateful for what I have. However, I love to cook something different or make special dessert just for fun. Not for this year though. The only different thing I had this year was one of my co-worker brought heart-shaped Krispy Kreme donuts to office so everyone had it for breakfast. Surprisingly, someone bought Krispy Kreme Valentine donuts at hubby's office too. Haha...
Although we are not big fans of Valentine's day, we celebrated it at church. Our church has a tradition of having a Valentine party Saturday after Valentine's day. That way more people can come to the party since it is not on a weekday; and everything Valentine has already been discounted since it's passed the D day. The main food for the party is spaghetti, inspired by the movie Lady and the Tramp. The side dishes and desserts are brought by people attending the party.
I made mini tarts with egg custard filling which I didn't plan to make. We were invited for lunch at our friends' house and I had to finish some drawings afterward before going to church. On the way from our friends' house, I felt like baking so we went to grocery store shopped for the ingredients. In three hours I got the mini tarts I had imagined. We brought back zero leftover
