Back and semi-alive again :P

December 6th, 2007 (05:31 pm)

current mood: hungry

Spent most of yesterday more out-of-it than not simply because I hadn't been sleeping overly well in Vancouver. The bed was comfy, but my internal clock went wonkers. (......where did that word come from??) >.> But, even more surprising was that FSU got the stomach flu or similar while I was away and was essentially dead when I got back. (Male parental ended up picking me up from the airport.) But, for better or for worse, since going away, I've managed to scribble out most of the plot outline for two more GH FFs to continue along with my NaNo FF. Mind you, none of this stuff is in any shape to be seen by anyone yet. ^^;;

But now that I'm once again among the land of the living(? really??), I'm hoping to start getting back into things again. :P

......Although one of the first "things" will be Xmas baking. *laughs* 'Tis the season, after all. ^^; This year's plan will include the English toffee candy wombat1138 mentioned a couple years ago, probably some cream puffs, and this year's fascination is creme brulee. ^^;; FSU bought me a kitchen torch recently, so I'm thinking about trying an orange creme brulee next or maybe even a chocolate one. ^o^ Unfortunately, I haven't decided on which cookies to make yet. >.> Ah Xmas baking, how you haunt me every year... Has anyone else started planning the Xmas baking yet?

Oh! And before I forget, because I've seen mention of Hoshi wa Utau lately even though I'm hopelessly behind on it, Vol 1 will be released Jan 18. Hopefully *that* will kick my butt into reading the series and seeing if I like it or not. I still haven't read beyond ch 2 or so. ^^;

Rin addiction (squareitup)

I'm starting baking tomorrow, since we're having a St. Nicholas party in the evening. I'm gonna make Flamika's pan de polvo (sp? recipe's downstairs) cookies and my eggnog ones. ^_^

Those eggnog cookies are absolutely *terrible*! I've been making them every year since you posted that recipe and will probably be making them again this year. ^^; I just have to remember to pick up some eggnog at some point. :P That said, there's an "eggnog" creme brulee FSU and I are currently debating. There's no actual eggnog in it though. ^^;

*g* I think they've turned into my one traditional cookie. I'm about to go make some, having just finished some very chocolatey ones (I revised my plan, so I'll make the others another day).
