12 Days - Day 7

December 20th, 2005 (02:36 am)

current mood: hungry

And day 7 for the Christmas Special is now up. It's an older screensaver, but cute. I'd forgotten I had that on my system, but I'd used the screensaver for a long time on my old computer.

5 more days? Is that right?? Not much time to get everything else pulled together... (assuming I can actually get it all done.) @_@

And in today's culinary disaster zone...

I finally finished making the recipe for peppermint white choco creams as written in the Dec 1993 Bon Appetit (IIRC). Next time I do this, I think I really do want to try molding the choco's but am not sure where I can get that sort of mold. Maybe the cooking supply store near the tech school will have some. But even with molds it'd be pretty rough going. I suppose I could do what other people suggested with spraying the cups with non-stick spray before adding the choco. It might work.

I swear, every time I make this recipe, it takes forever because of the candy cane crush. It's such a pain to do (although the rolling pin idea works reasonably well). And because of the time and annoyance factor, it tends to keep me from making these things which is a shame; they're really tasty. While making the choco's we ran out of micro cups for dessert and we resorted to some petit four cups. I think they're a little hard to peel but otherwise okay. ^^;;

Otherwise, Adagio surprised me this morning when I got the mail and found they'd sent a calendar. I thought the calendar was supposed to be something that had to be pre-ordered and booked. Since we have a number of anime calendars, I didn't buy the one from Adagio. I think I've been ordering a bit too much from them therefore. :P

Did the "Tales of Lamb.... Iyaa!" last night. It was interesting although my lamb was a bit too close to being alive. :P What a thing to discover while cooking; ...I don't have 'X'. In my case, I didn't have any rosemary for the marinade. >_< Might have to try picking up lamb again sometime. It was really soft. Next culinary adventure will be how to prepare quail. There was a sale on at the oriental market; 6 frozen quail for $7. I couldn't resist so now I have to figure out some way to cook them. >_<;; Should prove interesting...

Please let me finish off what I want to get done... >_
