Pandan coconut crepes, iphone games and a Holiday Greeting

I've recently got an iphone and got very addicted to these three games

- smurfs village
- bakery story
- restaurant story

Haha, i'm sure you guys have all heard of at least the last game, but these games are sooo addictive (much more addictive then papertoss, fruit ninja, and angry birds, IMO).

Restaurant story
mac & cheese, omlettes, french toast, garden salad, bacon & eggs


Bakery Story
choc chip cookies, tea, coffee, brownies, macarons, chocolate cake, carrot cake, cinnamon rolls



i love playing smurfs!

You:
- build mushroom houses (the more you build the more smurfs you get to work for you)
- plant crops of fruit and vegetables
- complete requests from Papa smurf
- play games for money and XP

There's alot more but its such a rewarding game i reckon, so cute as well.


I've been practising making crepes lately, i find it really therapeutic the repetitiveness of it all, and they are delicious with almost anything (spreads and jams) but on this occasion ive made a pandan custard. To save time i bought these from Cabramatta for $2 a pop!


all you need to do is add boiling water & stir.








I've used a recipe from taste.com.au, repalced the milk with coconut milk, and the plain flour with wholewheat flour.


Ingredients
1 cup plain flour (or wholewheat flour)
2 cups milk (or coconut milk)
3 eggs
olive oil cooking spray

Method
Sift flour into a bowl. Whisk milk and eggs together in a jug. Add milk mixture to flour. Whisk until well combined.

Spray a medium, non-stick frying pan with oil. Heat over medium heat.

Pour 2 1/2 tablespoons batter into pan. Swirl to cover base. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until light golden. Turn over and cook for 1 minute.

Transfer to a plate. Cover to keep warm. Repeat with remaining batter.

Assemble
spoon custard into a long line, sprinkle with dessicated coconut, roll up like you would a spring roll. Serve!



Lastly, i would like to wish every one of my readers a very Merry Christmas, and a fantastic New year! I hope you all get lots of pressies, eat lots of yummy food, and a great holiday break (if you do get one).

I return to work on the 3rd January :( But i have a few things planned for my one and a bit break

-tennis
-baking
-cooking
-brunching, lunching and dinnering
- yoga
- gym
- coastal walk
- ice skating
- family get togethers

Can't wait! Cya everyone :D

I'm not sure where I can get pandan mix from here but I'd love to try it. And speaking of the iPhone games - I've been looking for a few new ones to play. I can't believe I haven't found restaurant and bakery story before! :D (My roomate already has smurf village so we play on that on her iphone, haha)
