嬌小版麵包布丁《聖誕甜點》Petite Style Bread Pudding《Christmas Desserts》
Ever since I started writing my blog in both languages, my blogger friends and some of my readers seem to have had problems getting my updates. To cut a long story short, I need to start reducing the number of photos I share with you as well as lengths of each post.

烤脆皮豬腿肉 《聖誕美食》 Roast Pork with Crackling《Christmas Cooking》
我在英國已住上了三十一年, 身為媽媽的日子也已有二十四年了。我是在我兩個孩子出生後才正式開始學煮食的, 也是自從我大兒子吃的第一口稀粥開始, 日後他們每天的三餐, 都是我親手預備的。
I've been living in the UK for 31 years now, 24 years of which I have been a mother. I started to learn to cook when my children were born, and from the day my eldest son took his first mouthful of solid food, I've been preparing their daily meals for them.

自從開始寫部落格以來, 很幸運認識了很多博友, 從中也有些成為了志同道合的好朋友。

Ever since I started blogging, I've had the fortune of connecting with other bloggers, making some really good, genuine friends along the way.
Kind, sincere and generous Meiko is one of them. She is a multi-talented, intelligent and blissfully happy full-time house wife. Writing blogs is only one of her many interests.

松露巧克力《聖誕甜點》Chocolate Truffles《Christmas Sweet Treats》

As I was writing my Christmas shopping list the other day, I got a phone call from one of my neighbours Mrs R. She said their grand-daughter Annie is visiting and is staying with them now during the half-term; the little girl has asked to come and see our dog Josh, Mrs R. asked if she can bring her over?

野菌香草湯和自家製烤麵包粒 Wild Mushrooms & Herbs Soup with Homemade croutons
The autumn season has only just begun but the nature around us is already changing rapidly. Taking a walk in the woods you can see the newly ripened brambles, conkers, rose hips, hawthorns, apples and pine cones, all beautifully hanging from the trees. Then there are the fallen leaves magically carpeting the woodland ground, with wild mushrooms peeping out playing hide and seek everywhere.

焦糖燉奶布丁 《法式甜品》 Crème Brûlée《French Style Dessert》
When eating out in a nice restaurant, we usually order a three or four course dinner or sometimes up to five or six depending on the menu.
But when entertaining at home for friends, weekend family meals or special gathering, cooking a main course with all the trimmings plus dessert is already quite enough work for a busy hostess.

法式土司《健康早餐》 French Style Toast 《Healthy Breakfast》
The rain has not stopped for a couple of days. It was cold, wet and miserable.
So when I woke up to a bright and sunny morning the other day, I instantly felt warm and happy inside.

綠茶香橙杯子蛋糕 Green Tea and Orange Cupcakes
Tea plays such an important role in our house. Doesn’t matter if it’s rain or shine, summer or winter. Whoever walks into the kitchen first thing in the morning will be the one who fills the kettle and brews a pot for the rest of the family, or for the visitors who happened to be staying with us at the time.

甜酸咕嚕肉 Sweet and Sour Pork
我們從倫敦回來，兒子已回曼城。走進他房間替他收拾，便看到他兒時最心愛的三個睡伴：他出生後我們買給他的小藍毛熊，那隻耳朵是 rattle 的小笨象和別人送他，被他弄去了一隻眼晴的黃色小兔熊；排排地坐在椅上。
Our children have both graduated now, and our son has gone back to Manchester.
When we came back from London after our daughter's graduation ceremony, I went to tidy up his bedroom, and saw that three of his favourite soft toys were still on his chair.

煎烤鮮魚 Pan-Fried or Grilled Fresh Fish
When our son was little, his dad took him everywhere to go fishing. In the beginning they only went to fish in rivers or lakes, but before long they started going out to sea. Husband suffers from sea sickness most of the time, so he taught our son how to tie the line and attach the bait. This became our son's main task, and he was responsible for unhooking the fish too.

酥皮蛋撻 ( 一 ) Puff Pastry Egg Tarts ( 1 )
奧運終於在一片興高彩烈的氣氛下閉幕了。從 Danny Boyle 設計的充滿歷史與時代為背景，人性與感情，嚴肅與趣味交織的啟幕禮開始；到兩星期來的比賽，期間充滿了個別或各組織體系，每位運動員們不斷奮鬥的成績。主辦大會統籌下的團結表現、義工們的齊心協力 ...... 使整個運動會充份發揮出濃厚的人情味和豐富的國際民族色彩。友誼和競爭的冲激下，每天都是緊張精彩的項目！

粟米魚柳 Fillets of Fish in Sweetcorn Sauce
Recently I have been very busy with family life and some other things. To get me through, I remembered one of Einstein's sayings, " Three rules of work: Out of clutter find simplicity; From discord find harmony; In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity." Very useful philosophy.

海陸沙律 Surf and Turf Salad
最近聽世界各地的朋友們都說他們的夏天有多熱，動輒都 36 - 38 ˚ C。我記起這麼熱的經驗也只有幾年前去美國佛羅尼達州體會過。那次還差點中暑。所以我知道大家的苦處。
Recently, I've been hearing friends from all different parts of the world saying how hot this summer is where they live, with temperatures as high as 36 - 38 ˚ C. From what I can remember, I've only ever experienced weather that hot when we were in Florida a few years back. That time, I nearly suffered a sun - stroke, so I know what everybody must be going through.

雞和煙肉公司沙律 Chicken & Bacon Club Salad
Before I left Hong Kong, between the few years that I finished school and came to study abroad, I worked as an assistant artist; first at the Shaw Brothers (HK) Ltd, then at the Hotel Furama.
With the first job, I watched a lot of films. With the second job, I ate a lot of food.

香濃軟巧克力蛋糕 Rich & Soft Chocolate Cake
去年十二月，從部落格的網上來往中認識了 Daisy。她開朗的性格和生動的文筆很討人喜愛；尤其是她對訪尋出色甜品的積極態度，或自己親自動手做的認真，都令人佩服。我想她替她的部落格取名 " Never too sweet "，最是貼切不過。
