Totally productive

Last weekend was definitely a very productive long weekend. I completed a cake and got it delivered on Friday.   Sure been a while that I done a fondant cake all by myself.

Followed by having all my souvenirs from all our past holidays brought from its hiding place and have it displayed properly in the new cabinet.

A special guest, NN and his girlfriend came by for a visit in the morning. NN was a teen that came to stay with me when he was only 17. Time really flies and now he is already 24, taking over his dad's empire. Geesh, I really feel old when I saw him developed from a teen to now a businessman.

Thanks MA and NN for the gift.  I will churn out something nice from it.

I also made Banana Sherbet and Coffee Ice Cream for a bloggers’ party.  Though I held many bloggers' gatherings in the past, this one is the first in my new abode and I am happy that the guests were comfortable.

I really like this Banana Sherbet.  It is light and easy on the palatte.

Look at this gorgeous little plate that my son done for his design and technology class.   Talented isn't he?

As for the Kalua Ice Cream,  I can only prepare this for a party because other wise, I will have no chance to have one as my kids do not like coffee.

We had a great time catching up with old friends and meeting new faces. I was hoping to meet more but as this gathering was arranged rather at a short notice due to poor health, many were unable to attend.  Well, guess I will have another one soon.

See how much food we stuffed ourselves with?
