棋盘饼。 幸运礼物 (Choc and cranberry checkerboard。 Lucky draw. )

今天是农历正月初七,俗称“人日”。
人人生日,当然包刮你,我,
为了在这特别的日子,留下一点特别的回忆,
约了Na Nak, 做点特别的料理 —— 棋盘(Choc and cranberry checkerboard).


 卖相特别又好味的棋盘饼。



棋盘饼下的贝壳木制棋盘是安哥宋N年前,
旅游越南时,带回来的纪念品。 



除了棋盘使用贝壳木制,棋子是用犀牛角制成的。
整套西洋棋是安哥宋的收藏品之一。




第一次做棋盘饼,不论时卖相或口感,
都叫人满意。


就以这特别的棋盘饼,
祝各位“人日快乐!


 没想到,当开启电脑,进入安迪漾部落格,
一眼就看到留言信箱:“恭喜安迪漾获奖!请告知地址,以便。。。。。。。。”
当时就如小孩般,向着安哥宋大叫:“宋,我获奖啦!我获奖啦!是由来自Perth 的Jane 所送出的,。。。。。。。。“
奇怪,都老大不小了,怎么获个奖,也可以开心成这样?
哈。。。。。。可能这就是安迪本色,
小小的惊喜,就可以换回大大的开心。

在这里,诚心诚意的向Jane Chew 说声谢谢!
不止是这份刚巧在人日到来的礼物,
也要谢谢她在她的部落格留下许多生活点滴,
当中有美好的食谱分享,她对生活的观点,人际关系的互动,
都让我获益不浅,感恩!
