The day after
Do join me on this Heritage Food Trail if you have the time. I am sure it will be an opportunity to get to know other dialect food cuisine.
Today HN and L, along with their kids came over to play. Thus I prepared some Apple Cakes as snack for them. I had done this recipe many years ago, and I remembered that CL loved it. Unfortunately the post was part of the missing lots and thus it feels good to reattempt this recipe and have it in writing again.
As for the kids, they definitely remembered my son well. Despite only meeting once a year, they were already comfortable with each other right from the start. It was my daughter who felt left out, after all, how can her friend who shared the same birth date, birth month and birth year ignored her?
Well, it didn’t take long for my prince to get tired of the kiddish game and retired to his You Tube world. Now my princess was finally getting the attention.
By the time L and her kids arrived, the kids just gelled so nicely with each other. We, mommies took the opportunity to do a little shopping. A time out for ourselves, as HN knew of a place nearby that sells nice ribbons and craft stuff.
Despite staying here nearly 3 years, I am sure a green horn in my own territory! She was the one that navigate the short cuts and buildings! Of course they had a good laugh at my ignorance.
Though time spent was short as L needed to bring her boy for swimming class but am happy that I managed to spend some time with my buddies.
I am glad I baked the Apple Cakes in mini pop size, it was easy for the kids to pick and eat. From the repeated trips to the table, I know they love it.
Bon voyage ladies, and see you next year.
