Do you have those moments where you get all messy in the kitchen? Well, I do. Not to be ashamed of it, I always make a lot of mess. It’s fun making a mess. I know you agree with me. 😀 What’s not fun is to clean up. Who else hates cleaning up?
For today’s Fiesta, I am bringing you something from my ‘Filipino cravings’ list. Another one satisfied – happy me and happy tummy! 😀
So I had this one whole day where I did not oblige myself to run that much of errands – just the usual dusting and sweeping off dirt. I was feeling a little hyper most of the time on that day so I figured out I want to make something that requires more time than the usual.
After taking a shower and get dressed, I prepared all the ingredients and equipment I need. While dealing with the flour to make the crust, I was using a pasty mixer. As I was mixing, the pasty mixer slid down because I was holding it on the handle only. You know what happened – I got flour all over my shirt and on the floor. I got flour powder after I took a shower, that’s great! 😀 After having flour powder, I decided to hold the pastry mixer on the handle with my thumb on the side and carefully mixed it. I was so grateful that I finished mixing without showering with flour. Well, I don’t usually get flour all over me… just this time. Uhm, only when I am dealing something with a crust.
While filling the crust, I got really bored. You know me – I don’t want to make the same thing for a long time. Sitting (or standing in my case), holding the crust to put the filling, and seal. Repeat. Before I lose my sanity with boredom, I noticed that MP3 player was turned off. So, I turned it on and continued with the process. At least the music helped to keep me sane while filling the remaining crust. 😀

I was standing for long and my back ached when I made these, but when it’s finally baked, wow! I really loved how cute and delicious they were. (Don’t ask, I love putting the filling in a standing position – I feel sleepy and bored when I sit.) I have made this using the same recipe but these yummies are more beautiful the second time around. ❤
I have not used all the filling so I ate the remaining with the love of my tummy – sunny side up! 😀
Oh! By the way, I think my feet will take me away from the party for… not too long. I will be back as soon as I can and catch up with you all later. Have fun and enjoy!
