I should probably be in bed. Instead, I’m watching Bizarre Foods and reading Buzzfeed food articles and taking Buzzfeed quizzes. I have a cat on my lap (which is amazing, because she is so not a lap cat. She’s more of a follow you like a puppy and sit juuust out of reach cat) and everyone else is asleep. Since alone time is hard to come by around here, I’m going to enjoy it until I can’t keep my eyes open!
This quiz, though, I felt that I needed to share with y’all.
- You got: Pastry Chef You’re a pastry chef! You’ve got a taste for all things sweet like pastries, breads, and desserts. This job may look easy but as any pastry chef knows, it’s all about science and hard work. Your every move needs to be thoughtful and incredibly precise. You’re a patient chef, who spends your days making assorted breads and homemade croissants. You take simple, humble ingredients and turn them into something spectacular.
And, hey, they are right. I love cooking, but baking is definitely where my heart lies.
I think I’m going to bake something tomorrow. Don’t know what, yet, but I’ll see what’s in the fridge that needs to be used up. We have so many bottles and jars of home canned fruit things with little bits in them, I’m making it my mission to use this stuff up!
The last thing I made was gf/df chocolate covered strawberry brownies, which handily used up the too-thin strawberry jam and half jarful of canned strawberries (which look weird because the colour leaches out of them into the syrup), along with the last handful of chocolate chips and a tiny bar of 85% dark chocolate. They. Are. Insane. Sooo rich and sweet, it’s almost like fudge.
tl;dr Talk amongst yourselves.
ETA: Meant to post a quick Shadow update... he’s doing really well and is nagging O-H incessantly for food (which is still baby food meats and plain chicken meat). We are cautiously optimistic that the move and/or people seperation had stressed him out, plus he seemed to have a kitty cold/flu. There was a lot of sneezing and cat snot for awhile, and that’s cleared up, too. We won’t really know until we see how he does after he’s done with the steroids.
