花开富贵牛油饼 (Chinese Blossom Cookie)

(妹妹送的餐桌布,我很喜欢)

昨天和老公的姐姐们传递短讯时,
大姑传送了一张照片;一罐年饼 ~ 这个cherry牛油饼
这是我小时候妈妈和阿姨们每次过年时都会一起做的小饼干。
30多年前会做这种年饼好像是很厉害很pro料叻。
而且会做很多,那时用Milo罐子来装的。
可以想像要做的份量多么的恐怖。
每次妈妈和阿姨们忙着做年饼时,我们表姊妹就有机会混在一起;
玩个天翻地覆,大人很忙嘛,没有时间管我们。
所以我们就做猴子了。
一起玩,一起洗澡,就这样玩上一整天。
有时又跑到外婆家后面的一片空旷地去玩。
当时妈妈们也没担心我们会不见或者被人拐带又或是发生意外。
现在不再是这样了;父母一少留神,孩子就丢失了。
孩子只能在被指定的范围内活动,感觉不再比以前的我们来得幸福。
年关近了,希望大家在忙着准备年货年糕时,
也不要忘了多留心身边的孩子们;
过年前尽自己的能力多准备必要的礼品和装饰固然重要,
但是一家平安,齐齐整整的在一起比起外在的一切来得更加的可贵和开心。
记得咯,姐妹们出门逛街买衣服,包包和鞋子时,
不要把孩子们给忽略了,给弄丢了。
开开心心出门,开开心心回家。

记忆中的小饼干至今还在流行着。
我今年就做做这饼干怀念一下儿时的玩伴,儿时的欢乐时光。
再改改名称和味道,让它不再那么单调和普通。
谢谢Jessie给我送来的小礼物,那个小花盆,小汤匙和布垫,我都喜欢。

  10. Jane, 忙完了手上的工作坐下來打開電腦,一下就看到了妳的新貼子,一心就在沒睡覺前又回到妳的貼子,寫完留言後就去找周公!妳的故事都很溫馨!妳們小時候的經歷是我想要的,所以讀完故事後有些感觸。我的哥哥大過我七年,我九歲時他已經去了另一個小鎮工作,家裏除了爸媽,就只乘下我,所以我的童年是和鄰居的孩子玩。媽媽從來沒做過年餅,因為她不會,但是我們有很厲害的鄰居,媽媽常常幫鄰居做,過後鄰居會分一些給我們,哈哈!這些花花牛油餅很漂亮,有我喜歡的粉紅色,我要拿一杯走!

    1. Jessie, 感动呐,要睡了都还在读我的无聊史。能和邻居玩也是很快乐的。毕竟吃喝玩乐本来就是孩子们的天地。

    你还记得啊, 我们当时最喜欢的好像是新年前妈妈们做年饼了,然后我们真的能像猴子一样玩翻天,记得吗,如果叫我们照顾炉子里的饼,我们有时还会故意让他们便得黑一点,酱我们就有得吃咯, 好快,我们的孩子都比当时的我们还大了。。。
    我也要做这饼来回味儿时的新年了!
