Ode To Friday

Friday, April 23rd, 2010

Oh, Friday, Glorious Friday
If I may
I’d like to say,
Come sooner next time, m’kay?

Thus ends Poetry Friday. UR welcome.

On Saturday, I’m taking my son to Chocolatier Blue where I went last Sunday and came home with goodies for him that had him floored with their delciousiocity. I told him to bring his own money.

In other news, The Next Paranormal continues to go well. I should get back to it shortly.

Also, I have decided to be funnier, only I can’t think of anything. Sorry.

Maybe next time?


Just a Cake Baking Fool

Saturday, April 17th, 2010

I have decided that after too many years of mediocre cake baking, that I need to rise above it all and become a kick ass baker.

I bought myself The Cake Bible and am working my way through it. I have been making multiple versions of the cakes until I get them perfect. Frosting is my challenge. Today, though was a bit of a success frosting-wise. I have learned that our local butter (Clover brand) is actually a superior butter and that the $35 butter I bought is made from milk that comes from right here in Northern CA. We have happy superior butter cows here.

Today I made a chocolate cake. I feel it was a bit dry, but no one else thought so. I will have to sample it again tomorrow to be sure. And, of course, make the cake again. I have plenty of frosting left to do so.

It’s no coincidence, by the way, that the heroine of The Next Paranormal is a baker.

Writing and Real Life. Sometimes they intersect.
