Sweet Potato Dessert 番薯糖水

My friends asked if I have not been cooking for couple of months. It made me realized blogging is no longer my priority in daily routine task. I have very limited time to reply my readers' comment, and my readers' email. Although I spent very little time to blog, but I still cook a lot. I seldom fail to prepare dinner at home on weekdays, except Friday. Friday used to be our dine out day and to shop for groceries.

When comes to weekend, life's seem hectic. Baby sticks to me every time I bring her home. She prefers mummy much more than daddy. Hence, weekend cooking becomes difficult to me. I can cook on really simple stuffs. For example, the one-pot-dish, the stew, and slow cooked dessert like this sweet potato sweet soup. 

This is an improved version of normal sweet potato dessert. I added some dried longan, red dates and white fungus to this sweet soup on top of the sweet potato and screw pine leaves. So, you can imagine, it is tastier.

It's a very short period when the baby sticks to you. Time flies and very soon, baby won't want to be sticky anymore.

Your tongsui has lots of liao, very nice.

Though my "big" tot is in P1, he still sticks to me. :( Besides taking care of the housework, I am tied down with his school work. Thus, I have very (almost none) "me" time and find that it's hard to concentrate on my blog. But it's very satisfying to see him growing day by day. I'm sure you have achieved other thing even though you loose out on your blogging. 加油!
