Had a good day..

Traveled West to spend the day with some of DH' family, it was lovely. I have eaten enough turkey in the past 7 days to turn into one...

PN is ill with a cold, the cough started last night, this evening she had a full blown runny nose with sneezing. Poor little girl, I hope she is not ill on her 6th birthday!

So, tomorrow I am making this...

Coconut/ Walnut Shrimp

1/2 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 Tbsp wine
1 Tbsp cornstarch

1 egg
1/2 cup tapioca starch
1 tsp salt

3 Tbsp coconut milk
3 Tbsp mayo
1 Tbsp lemon juice
2-3 Tbsp honey
handful of glazed walnuts

1. Wash and dry shrimp thoroughly. Then mix with the wine and cornstarch and leave aside while preparing the rest of the ingredients.
2. Beat the egg with the starch and salt. Add enough cold water to form a smooth but slightly thick batter. Heat enough oil for deep frying to 350 F. Using chopsticks, dip each shrimp in the batter, then fry in the hot oil for a few minutes until golden and crispy. Drain on paper towels.
3. While the shrimps are frying, mix the sauce ingredients in a saucepan. After the shrimps are all done frying, place the shrimp on a plate and pour the sauce over. Sprinkle with the walnuts.

I also need to make room for Christmas items to be carried up, so the tree can be fluffed up and decorated.

I need to make an advent wreath, and the list continues to rock on.

More cookies need to be made, this time Russian tea crescents, and chocolate crinkles.

The shrimp dish looks amazing! Yum!

I'll do the bulk of my cleaning, etc. on Sunday so that next weekend once we've fully participated in the girls' school festival, we can go chop down our tree. LOL THAT should be a sight!
