Chicken Mango Salad



This is a light and refreshing salad which is simple, tangy and super easy to whip up for all seasons and occasions.  You can serve  this as a meal on its own.  I used leftover roast chicken, tossed in some vegetables and mango slices, drizzle on some dressing and it's  done!

Puff Pastry Egg Tarts - 2 酥皮蛋撻

I took the opportunity to try my hands at making puff pastry from scratch when I was on vacation as the weather was quite cooling and I assumed that the dough wouldn't be sticky and messy to handle.
I could make both oil and water dough easily and there were no 'sweat and tears', LOL!  The pastries turned out nice and flaky and everybody gave their thumbs up for this dim sum, especially my dear grandnephew who asked for more!
