The recipe that I have to offer you tonight is still in the oven. I thought maybe we could wait together.
Sooooo…. what’s new?
How have you been since the last time we talked?
Was it really just yesterday?
Have you seen these dishes?
And what about this corn? I know, right?! FROZEN corn with mint of all things? This time of year? Seems odd but so alluring. Luisa’s insistence has convinced me that I need to make this. So I will be, on Thursday, for a very special someone’s birthday feast.
Oh my goodness. This tart. Nearly everyday I ask Tara if we can be best friends. She’s probably scared of me but I’m serious. I want to eat EVERYTHING that comes from her kitchen.
Hey! Here I sit just chatting away when I’ve neglected to tell you some thrilling news! A beautiful shiny chrome 6 quart KitchenAid arrived at my doorstep today.
You see tragically I’ve been without a mixer for nearly 8 months now. *gasp* In the midst of our move I leant my machine and it broke in the hands of the borrower. I couldn’t have been happier. For I was once the owner of a 5 quart machine and because of the “accident” I upgraded.
To make the machine feel right at home I’ve put her to good use on her first day here. Together we made Gingerbread dough (in case you were wondering, 12 cups of flour EASILY fits in the 6 quart), marshmallows and meringue.
Which brings me back to what I came here to talk to you about. Meringue.
Sadly it appears as if I am just going to be a tease and tell you that they will have to wait for tomorrow.
It is currently 11:26 pm and even with the two shots of espresso I just consumed – I am fading fast – and the meringues are far from being ready to make their debut. In fact they’re as soft as the pillow that is currently calling my name.
Instead I’ll let Baron’s excitement for this project speak for itself.
“I want this one.”
“Yeah! This one right here.”
“Wait?! What do you mean they won’t be ready for hours?! Hrumpf.”
I feel you sweet boy. We’re all waiting patiently.
Thanks for waiting with me. Come back tomorrow – we’re making mushrooms!
