No time to make sandwiches for the kids because I was busy making CNY pineapple tarts. Anyway, the kids didn't seem to mind because there was a CNY goodies sales going on in school during recess. They were more than happy to indulge in the extra goodies in school.
This coming year is the Year of Goat so I made a special goat tart in the middle in each box accompanied by my usual pig tarts. The goats need a lot more work so I am sticking to my pigs. Hee....
Made the pineapple paste from scratch and it always reminds me of how my family made the tarts. I still remember how my grandma would grate the fresh pineapples to bits by hand and my grandpa would stand in front of the stove for hours, stirring the pineapple paste in the wok. At night, everyone in the family (my mum, aunties and uncles) would come together to help make the pineapple tarts. I don't recall helping much but I am very sure I helped to eat (especially the freshly baked ones, hot from the oven). Hahaha….
Well, now I am on my own.
