Party Day

Thank you very much for your get well wishes. XY has recovered and is able to go party already. :-) Her fever didn't come back since my last update but we still kept her at home yesterday, just to be sure. Her kindy is having a party today, a joint celebration for children born in the month of July, August and September. And also to celebrate National Day.

~ time to party! ~

There are no lessons and they can wear party clothes. As she's one of the birthday kids, we're supposed to contribute some food. So I made muffins (what else? hahaha). This time, I tried strawberry muffins. I baked them yesterday afternoon. When I took out all the ingredients, I realised I didn't have enough corn oil. *ooops!* Checked with SIL and she only has grapeseed oil and peanut oil. I googled and found out that grapeseed oil can be used for baking. So I mixed corn oil with grapeseed oil. :p Luckily they didn't taste weird. I reduced almost half of the oil required as I didn't want to make them too oily for the kids. I used a bigger cup this round. The outcome wasn't too satisfactory. They don't look nice, all cracked up and uneven. They tasted alright but not as fluffy and dry as my previous bakes.

~ some of the nicer-looking ones ~

It was a big hit with didi but jie jie didn't even finish one. Didi kept asking for more but I didn't have extra to give him. 1kg of pre-mix flour made 24 muffins and I allocated 20 for the party. I was worried XY would come back with the container barely touched. I'm so relieved she only brought back 2. Looks like didi's in luck! hehehe
