With the Foccacia bread I bake earlier.. I made this sandwiches for dinner...

Grill chicken with sauteed mushroom and egg.. accompanied with some sweet peas...
used my egg ring for the sunnyside up.. look so pretty... sautee mushroom with coarse salt and olive oil... add int he peas to cook it quickly... top with chicken... oh yes the chicken was pregrilled to perfection.... marinated with garlic honey, and herbs... Wated to use spinach but I cant get any... and cheese too but I thought too much carbo already thou everythg was healthy enuff since no butter or other oil except Olive oil was used.

Lovely Pineapple Tarts

Its been a yearly affair that I sell my pineapple tart.. however this year I scale down... since I was trying to experiment with many other things...
The tarts are at its BEST taste this year.. at least no one complain of the sourish-ness... n they love the pastry... crispy and yet melt in the mouth... actualy its same recipe all over again somehow... well I guess its my shkillful hands uh? hehe...
Rachel who order from me.. mention herbf family fiish the hwoel box in 1 day... and mum also fin the whole box I gave them in 1 day.. I guess today thou 1st day of CNy I got no choice but to make a fresh batch for her.. else my 2 sisters will scream and say they hav not eaten any.. hehe
