Salam to all,
Happy leap year everyone ;) Wouldnt it be great that if those born on this day only gets old every 4 yrs hehehez. I know that it will be hard for the teenagers bcos when I was at that age, I wanted to grow up to be an adult so much. Right now, at this age, I wish I can turn back time.....haizzz. Anyway, I didnt do any leap of joy today. Just went to Hamilton to visit aunty Eton and did my groceries at the same time.
It's been two days in a row that I made these donuts. Yesterday, hb requested for them and asked me to fill the donuts with whipped cream. I didnt photo the donuts yesterday as I couldnt be bothered to cos I know that I will be making them again today. I made them again today as aunty Eton requested for me to bring her some donuts when I visit her today. I've been using this trusted donut recipe all the time since its so easy to remember the ingredients. They come in 3s and 2s. I didn't have much time left and needed to hurry to Hamilton just now and didn't get to take 'pretty' photos.

Summer has been too wet and cold with a few very fine, hot days this year. Our chillies didnt grow in abundance like last year's :( Apart from the weather, I have to blame hb too and he does agree that it was partly his fault hehehez. He didn't prepare the soil properly this year, no compost and no after care. He was really rushing to plant them. Out of 20 plants only 12 survived and they were only little......
I prefer red chillies here as the green ones can be easily bought from the supermarket or the asian shop. The red chillies are more expensive. Saw them at supermarket just now and they cost $46 a kg yellpp!!!! Ahamdullilah these ones in the planter box are turning red. Up to date, I've harvested 3 red chillies in total yeayyyy!! :ppp Will share photos of corns next time....they are ready to be harvested......
