Green Tea Macaroons with red bean fillings

I have been sick since last week and thus explained no movement in this little blog of mine.

Last Thursday, I brought my son to the Polyclinic for the referral letter to get his heart tested. All the preliminary tests done there came out negative, so this is really a good blessing.

I was so upset by his behaviour at the clinic that I actually had an asthma attack there. I was put on 13 puffs and 6 tablets of Prednisolone (my usual is 2 puffs and 2 tablet of Prednisolone) and after that, I had many sleepless nights. It seems that the side effect from the tablets.

I am still not really well yet, been having breathlessness and a tight chest.

Anyway, on a happier note, my son came home feeling chirpy. Though he failed his Maths but he came home with 4As on four other subjects! I am so proud of him. Let's hope the other 2 more subjects is just as good.

A happy son = to a happy household. Everyone is happy.

So I rewarded him with no studies for the night and Green Tea Macaroons with red bean fillings. I actually baked these before I fell ill. So tonight, I took the easy way out, I filled it with home made red bean paste, too exhausted to make red bean buttercream.

Good job boy! I hope you will continue with this. I know you can do it!

  9. Hi Edith
    I was told by my Pharmacist in Australia NOT to take Prednisolone at night - it will keep you awake. Only take it in the morning.

    Hope this wells

    Angie's Recipes, I was actually shocked that I gotten such heavy doses. Didn't know I was in such bad shape then.

    Leen, yah afer I took it only in the morning. then I remembered my GP told me about the side effects. But I was in really bad shape and I needed to open my airway badly. So no choice.
