I'll start this post off with a little humor. Can anyone tell me what this picture reminds you of?:
As Brandon puts it "It's like George from Seinfield when he posed on his velvet couch." Scary picture in my mind! Leben looks alot cuter though. He's now 5 months and weighing in at 52 lbs!
Here's a side that I made for dinner tonight (above). It's quite tasty and refreshing. I sliced up some cantaloupe and honeydew and sweet onions, tossed it with 2 TBS of simple syrup, about 1/4 C rice vinger (more or less depending on your tastes) and then tossed in some crumbled blue cheese. OOOHHH LALA! (I didn't really say that out loud, just in my head.)Last monday was the last week of spring semester classes before finals, so we made bread sculptures out of salt dough and we were allowed to make anything we wanted, so I opted to go for the pig, then my friends said he needed an apple. So an apple I made. He got baked at 275 degrees F for ... forever till he dried out. Best class ever!
Oh, This is our collaboration. Kim made the hot dog and the bun, I made the weener dog head, hence hot dog. HAHAHAHA...okay it really wasn't that great of a joke, but it was late, and we had been there since 7:30am.
I also made some spanokopitas sometime ago. I love feta and spinach, so this was the perfect finger food. Emmm...cheesy. I used olive oil between the filo layers instead of the traditional butter and it crisped really well!
Ahhh...well sorry to say my dear dear readers. At least those who happened to stumble across my page, willingly or unwillingly. Never the less, the 80 degree weather here in Florida has caused the self destruction of my prized chocolate hat. It's life was taken away by the stabbage of the stand itself. Horrific! I fell on my hands and knees and cried "WHY? WHY OH WHY?"
Really though, I was just sad I didn't eat it before it melted and well...after weeks sitting there being free food to flies and what not, it didn't seem proper.
OH! The last day of class also revealed to us (the pastry students), that we were really ready for sugar work. As you can see, we cast sugar into this stainglass window. The boys made an evil angel but their manly hands caused the decapitation of the the angels head and the eventual collapse of her body onto the bench.
Well, that's a wrap! There's more to come. I made an olive oil rosemary bread the other day, but didn't copy the picture onto the computer and well...I'm just too lazy to do it right now. hahahahaha. So you'll have to wait! *suspense has been created*
