Back with treats from Australia

I have overloaded my schedule once again, and am amazed at how time simply flew by. And I have so many stories to tell that I'd probably talk my friends to sleep. Maybe it's a good thing that some of my girlfriends are long-distance pals (at the moment)! But I should be apologizing for my long absence too. Long story short, it began with head cold, followed by a persistent coughing and sinus infection, the kids caught croup, and then we all had that nasty strand of flu virus that was not covered in last year's flu shot. Thankfully, we are on the mend, and life goes on.

So, I finally went to the mail box after the snow melted on Tuesday, and received a fun surprise! My dear friend Ioyces send these my way and the Korean movie was hilarious! Thanks for making my day, BFF! :) The story about a 'plain Jane' fabulous baker and a handsome wealthy restaurant owner had me wanting to bake again, so there will probably be some baking post next!

Was making these last night...While on the subject of food again, can you guess what are these morsels???

I will continue to add a couple of posts I missed from St. Patrick's Day, but otherwise will continue blogging for now on, I hope! (fingers' crossed) Here's the picture of the DVD. I liked that it's only a 2 disc DVD, and it's a fun 'chick-flick' for sure!I think the title is My Love Samson.

Welcome back. I wondered what happened to you. I'm glad the girls are recovering. I hear ya about that virus. I was laid low for most of this month and part of last month. Take care of the girls and yourself first, we'll always be around. :)

Judy said...

I think they are choc truffles with marshmallows. :)

Can you not get 70% chocolate where you are? I am still gutted that the meringues didn't get to you! :(

Hmmm...I see mashmellow, I see chocolate, are you making s'more? If yes, that would be graham cracker crumbs, if not that would be crushed toasted peanuts.

Glad that you are finally updating your blog. :)

What korean movie is that? Reminded me of a korean drama I watched where that plain jane bakes too and that funny young restaurant owner!

I saw dark chocolates *nibbling nibbling*

Beau Lotus said...

Heh, what's the title of the Korean series, Vi? I'll have to ask my family in Singapore to find it for me!

And glad to know that all's well in your little family, and that we can have you back again!
