Bet everyone has a fabulous Mother's day celebration yesterday. We did the usual casual dining at Ichiban restaurant for lunch which I ate the whole dragon roll all by myself. I like the creamy avocado and fried tiger prawn but hardly order the dragon sushi roll since it was quite pricey (to us at $14.90). And later that evening, we had Chinese food at Soup restaurant which we were pleasantly surprised that the day's menu only limited Mother's day set meals, nothing else. Nevertheless, we enjoyed the dinner.
Prior to that, I made strawberry tarts since I have plenty of organic oats left in the cupboard which were due to expire next month. And the boys were not fond of oatmeal too. Cracking my head on what I should do with these roll oats. I ended up with these yummy strawberry tarts.
Receipe for tart base
50g brown sugar
75g plain flour
140g rolled oats
For Crème Pâtissière, I followed and adapted the receipe from The Little Teochew here.
I also received a jewellery box and the cards he made in the school. Love it all. It was interesting how my son described what he drew on the card and just have to quickly pen down before I forgot. Quoted by my 6 years old little man:
"Mummy is the tree
with flowers and love and,
attracts butterflies, bees and stickbugs"
