It has been tiring for me for the last 2 days, whipping up goodies for Sunday. But despite being very busy juggling a few tasks at once and getting tired at the end of the day, I'm quite excited and happy to receive our usual Raya 'kakis'.
So far I've completed about 90% of my scheduled tasks - Brownie Platter, Chocolate Hazelnut Chesecake, Mango Cheesecake, Chocolate Mousse, Original / Strawberry & Matcha Cotton Cheesecake. I'll complete everything with Lemon Meringue in the morning.
It's been a while since I made these much and I unwillingly admit that age does make the difference. I get tired easily nowadays, compared to three years ago when I first started out.
Tiredness aside, I finished baking at 3pm and then made preparations to go visiting at 5pm. Although it was raining heavily, we covered four houses today. Pity that we had to 'drag' the 2 boys while they were still feeling weak. By the time we covered the last house, Ghazi had already fell asleep while Zinedine was looking for a place to lie down. We reached home at almost 11pm.
I felt bad as I had to inform one of our ex-colleagues that we were already leaving the house when she checked if we were in to visit. I'm still thinking about it as I jot these down. Hopefully we can arrange for a get-together some day.
Pictures will be up soon. I've yet to think of the table set-up. I hope to get some rest after baking the Lemon Meringue, before receiving my guests.
Oh hopefully the goodies will be enough for everyone and everything turns out well!
