Happy New Year!
My first days of this year were terrible, I was down with some stomach bug. I had energy only to lay and look at the ceiling. I had company, too, my littlest soonly join me into my misery. Of course, she was in far better condition than me and watched cartoons. Her favorite is My Little Pony, and she had my blessing, since I thought the ponies were really cute. But after a very long pony marathon I hated these pastel colored horses. By my entreaty my daughter chose another DVD. Now I hate Winnie-the-Pooh, too.
Love of my life rooted for my fast recovering, since our family were falling apart into tiny pieces without me. (His words, not mine.) Really, he still can't tell apart the kids' clothes, and doesn't know the buttons of the washing machine, and after his cooking the kitchen resembles a war zone.
My dear, on the off chance you would read this post, you know I love you, right?
But now I'm the old me, let's cut to the chase, new miniatures. I always admired the beautifully designed plated desserts. This is the year when I make my own miniature versions of these sweets. My first creation is a pear mousse cake with braised pear. I hope you like it!
These fruit baskets are not new ideas, but they are so good-looking side by side, I think it's a great picture in a new year post.
I made a promise to post more often this year, maybe I will make good on this promise. Maybe...
