Market Findings

Once a week I made a trip to Farmers Market nearby our neck of the wood here in Manila, it’s my way of knowing what fresh items are in season. This week I discovered that avocados and mangoes were crowding the shelves on fresh fruits sections, hoooraayy!

My daughter will have her favourite sliced mangoes and freshly baked alfajores for her after school activities snacks today and Saba banana fritter for me, yum!

Mactan

My parents-in-law are currently visiting us here in Manila, all the way from Vancouver. They’ve got to see my daughter year group Christmas production in school (it’s really amazing, we’re all very impressed!). They watched my daughter attending her gymnastics training and swimming training. We took them for a bike tour with Bamboo bike in Intramuros ( Bambike PH, a must try, you’ll learn a lot about Philippines history in less than 3 hours, highly recommend it). Last but not least we went for a long weekend getaway to Mactan, Cebu. We all had a blast enjoying the Sea, Sand and Sun.

Back in Manila now, I made Alfajores from scratch for today’s tea, YUM!

Sweet Treat

Sweet Treat

Our family love caramel on everything! Trio treat from top to bottom : Caramel flan, Chocolate cupcake with dulce de leche filling and buttercream frosting, Alfajores (eggless caramel cookie with dulce de leche & dusted with confectioner sugar).

Needless to say I’ve been baking up a storm this weekend.

Have a great Sunday everyone!
