LEGO CUB SCOUT CAKE for Blue and Gold Celebration

It's that time of the year for each Cub Scout Pack to celebrate birthday of Cub Scouting at the Blue and Gold dinner.   My grandson was so happy that he has a chance to bake a special cake.  And he picked LEGO CUB SCOUT as a model.  This is how it turned out.
Chocolate chips for hair, he wanted.

Candied Kumquats

This is a good year for my dwarf kumquat tree.  Abundance of gold jewels covered it like no other year.   And I was very patient not to pick them until the Chinese New Year arrived.   But there are so much of them.  I checked out the ways to make candied winter melon on the YouTube and here it is - the solution for kumquats.  Make them into candied kumquats.

Taking a Break from the Kitchen

I found the beautiful wind chime sculpture quite inspirational and relaxing.
