FB, frozen brie?!?, stuff

A couple of people have inquired about what's happening with this chapter and why I haven't summarised / translated it yet. Simply put, as a number of people are aware, people have been stealing the translations and making scanlations with them... again. Which means, at the least, I'm not looking at working on FB until my own physical copy arrives--probably just before or after Christmas. And whatever I write up will contain very little if any actual translated dialogue. It's going to take time to write up once I get the issue simply because I'm going to do my best to make sure it *can't* be used to make scanlations from. Those on my flist are aware that I typically release the full translation on LJ. I'm sorry, but if I write up a full translation for the chapter, it will not be available to my general flist either. I will give the FB fandom this much, it's been very educational. While not all bad, it definitely wasn't all good by any stretch. Educational is probably the best way to put it. :/


And... somehow, I managed to stick the brie and gouda cheeses I bought for Xmas munching in the deep freezer. >_<;; Does anyone have any ideas on what to do with *frozen brie*?!? I'm trying to thaw out the gouda and see how it's doing but... ^^; I have to admit, this is a first for me. :P

But! I started the... Christmas(??) baking! Wai! Only it wasn't Xmas stuff. Boo! ^^; While out buying various groceries, we also picked up some ripe bananas for banana bread. So I've now got lots and lots of banana bread. ^^; Next up though, is the eggnog cookies a la Ysa-chan. ^___^ Those cookies were really good! Unfortunately, as I was reading through the recipe today, I discovered that they eat up eggyolks. So does Ichi-san's vanillekipferln recipe IIRC. Which means, I'm going to have an excess of whites?? I could've sworn I had something to eat up excess whites last year, but I don't remember what. So... does anyone have any suggestions for recipes that eat up eggwhites? Preferably not meringues though. ^^;

My petted cashmere has finally been balled and is slowly starting down the path to scarfdom. It's currently 6" long. ^^; Fortunately, when we weighed the ball we figure the final length of the scarf should reach 36-40"; possibly longer. It's going to be so warm and soft! ^o^ (I was sorely tempted to go back for the same yarn in a different colourway since they had 3-4 balls in a bluish colourway. Mine's in a purply tone). The pattern being done is a basic tulip lace pattern from Vogue Knitting--The Ultimate Knitting Book. The scarf will basically consist of 4 rows and 4 stitches around of garter stitch border along with 3 pattern repeats done on Crystal Palace needles (US 9... 5mm?) So far, so good. If I'm really on the ball, maybe I can finish it this weekend. Umm... we'll see. ^^;


So the baking plan this weekend will be:
- eggnog cookies x 2
- vanillekipferln x 2 <-- if I get off my butt and make some vanilla sugar soon, oh and buy almonds too
- choux a la cremes? <-- hard to say if I'll have the energy for this one. It takes all night. >_<;

Oh yeah. I suppose I should think about Xmas shopping too. Eep! ^^;
