Lent 2010

The beginning of the  year provides many opportunities to start anew for me: new years day, start of school,  my birthday, first day of February, Chinese new years and now lent. Once lent rolls around, I can finally get serious after having a few practice rounds on keeping resolutions. Lent is also a little over 6 weeks which is much more mentally manageable than a year. When I learned over 10 years ago going to Catholic school that Lent is not just about giving up something but also adding something to your life I took that to heart. Since giving up something never works I dedicate from now until Easter, April 4th, I will blog every day. Note it is also accepted for Sundays to be rest days but I hopefully will disregard the break. This is to prove to myself that I do have something worth saying every day. It will be a mini version of all the 365 projects I’ve ever thought up. It will be the start of taking Gretchen Rubin’s advice to Do Something EVERY DAY. I love tracking my progress and documenting my days so what better way to do it than blog.

Today was filled with self doubt and worry but as always I must have faith in the future I cannot see. After looking up potential internships, motivation kicked in to continue my work by viewing it as building my portfolio. A good talk with Melanie over fruit tarts also helped <3

Ps. I think we should make fruit tarts when the strawberry season comes around. And lumpia, as you mentioned in the prev. post :)

Ohhh yes, I shall put it on the To Do List I haven’t made lumpia in forever! & we need to break in my family’s deep fryer.

How is this tart compared to Maria’s? I’ve noticed this one has tangerine. YUMMMEEE!

The crust is more solid than Maria’s. Not flaky. (Though I love a flaky crust too!) It was delish :) Custard light and nice mix of fruits!
