:: Thursday, April 03, 2003 ::

I went to my Vietnam War history class this morning, and then I went to my calculus class. After lunch, I started working on my chemistry problem set. Soon, it was dinnertime. So I had dinner with some acquaintances I had never dined with. It was quite pleasant. I then worked on some more chemistry and at 8 p.m. went to a TCS (Taiwanese Cultural Society) meeting where we made these delicious Taiwanese baked goods called Egg Custard Tarts. They're kind of like flan baked in a pastry shell. Very sweet in a flaky crust. It's always been my favorite Taiwanese baked good, so it was fun to make them. The recipe is as follows.

Mini-Tart shells (flaky pastry)
3 eggs
1 cup milk
1/4 cup of white sugar

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. Mix the eggs, milk, and white sugar together. Stir well.
3. Pour the mixture into the individual tart shells to about 4/5 full.
4. Bake for 10-20 minutes until lightly browned.

(No, I'm not turning my blog into MarthaStewart.com.)

Then, I went to a soiree held by The Crimson for compers (people working towards getting onto the staff). We all dressed up nicely for the "semi-formal" occasion. They served wine and cheese and crackers. I had cheese and crackers. It wasn't too bad. Then it was back to finish up chemistry.
