Recipe: My Favourite Lemon Tart

Most foodies would be aware that we are into Singapore's inaugural Restaurant Week this week. Meant to be a great opportunity to indulge in fine dining without hurting one's wallet too badly, I signed up for one of the restaurant's dinner (intentionally leaving out the name of the restaurant). The three-course dinner was a pretty good deal for $35++ and the appetizer and main course were a bit pedestrian and I was looking forward to dessert - tarte au citron.

Now, I love a good lemon tart. What is there not to like? A bit of tang, a bit of sweet. My ideal one would be one served slightly warm, just to crisp up the buttery pate sucre crust that has been filled with light, luscious lemon curd, almost cream-like in texture. On the first taste, the slight acidity from the lemon curd would make me purse my lips and squeeze my eyes just a little. But then, nothing that the vanilla bean ice cream on the side could not counter. All in all, the perfect lemon tart is one about balance.

Alas, the one at the restaurant week was sooo sour it made my eyes shut, tight. Thanks to this rather disappointing lemon tart though, I remembered a more awesome one I had a couple of months ago. The lemon tart is actually not on the store's menu but is a little secret that regulars would know and have to ask for. I wish I could share the place with you but I promised my friend I would not divulge his little secret. Here's the picture though :)

How do you juggle it all :( ?

I just feel that I don't have enough time - for the husband and  much less for myself!

During the workday, I make sure I try to go home on time so I could spend a couple of hours with A, and put him to bed. Then it's time to have my last pump at about 9pm before I just want to  zone out and crash.  The boy wakes up at least 3 times ever since his last leap when he learnt how to stand. Additionally, he fell really ill for the first time (i.e. antibiotics).  Prior to that, he cries 1-2 times but easily soothed with pacifier or with some milk. Because of these frequent interrupted sleep, the man and I took turns to fall ill as well, and it is difficult to recover. I still have the head colds and occasionally coughing spells.

On weekends, our schedule revolves around family events, and then I try to plan so that A can try to get a nap or 2 as well as to plan our routes throughout the day so I would end up somewhere comfortable to pump when I needed to.  Often the nap part fails,…

OOOh, new flavour!

I have been eating Quest nutrition protein bars for years! I love the taste and they are less guilty than the real deal.  The flavours are pretty spot on and they are available at iherb.com.  I recently shared about this site as well.

I eat at least one of them a day to satisfy that sweet tooth. My favourites so far are the cinnamon roll and smores.  But I'm excited that a new flavour has been launched and can't wait for the Oatmeal Chocolate Chip flavour to arrive!
