Tom Yam Soup, Blueberry Cheese Cups & Chocolate Cupcakes

Those are what I did for today since I'm not working & it has been raining since yesterday evening. Such a nice cool day to be at home. But still I had to buy some stuff for the Tom Yam soup for dear hubby. So when the heavy rain subsided, rushed down to get some tau pok, cauliflower, prawns, chicken etc.

Food preparation....
Almost ready from the pot.....

To my bowl, ready to slurp...... Yummy! Hot & spicy!

Then made Blueberry Cheesecakes for a friend who ordered a dozen cups to enjoy.

Afterwhich I decided to try out a Chocolate Cupcake recipe for dear daughter & myself.Chocolate Cupcakes
