Yammy Yams

I had yam overdose today when I was home.

I had my yam mooncake for breakfast. The crispy skin with the soft centre was really pleasant to the palate.

Then for lunch, I pan fried my steam yam cake. I made the yam cake last week when I was home attending to my children. I thought I could make some for them to eat. However, my twins can't eat as taking yam when they have blisters will cause them to itch even more. My mum gave me this piece of good advice. Prevention is better than cure right? Therefore, there was a lot of leftovers. Okay, I'm not complaining about it. I'm more than happy to have them all by myself. I love to fry them with sweet sauce and lots of eggs. See the amount of eggs I added?
As I had some yam paste left over from making my yam mooncake, I decided to try Shirley's Teochew Yam Paste (Or Nee). However, I didn't follow her last step to push it through the sieve. So I can say, it's not as smooth as hers, but the taste is pretty good. I also didn't add gingko nuts. After taking the Or Nee, I told myself, enough yam for the day!

I was warned about taking yams right after delivery too.
My mom said it will make my whole body itch.
