perfecting popovers & macarons
|I've known the beautiful lady sitting next to me since high school. |
She is expecting and is due next month.
The birthday girl is sitting across from me and next to her is my diet consultant and motivator!
On Saturday I helped my parents move out of their current apartment and into their new apartment. My brother came in from Purdue to help too. I got up at the crack of dawn and helped them load and unload the truck. I was in the kitchen with my mom when I noticed a box. I have been wanting one of these for quite sometime now. I asked my mom if she used it and she said I could take it. My dad was an ear shot away and interjected saying, " what am I suppose to make noodles with if you take my noodle machine?" To which my mother answered, "how often do we make noodles?" I just scored myself a pasta roller! Yahoo! My mother also gave me the juicer too! See what happens when you are a good daughter? They reward you with kitchen appliances. I can't wait to get my hands on these and make some proper home made noodles and pasta!

After the move, my brother came over to my house and spent some time with me and Levi. We went out for Thai food. I've been wanting Thai food for such a long time. I enjoyed every second of savoring my Pad Kee Mao. When we got home I put Levi to bed and my brother and I did shots of Whiskey and just talked about life while watching Tin Tin. We had a great time.

|See the cracking on top? I was not happy.|
|I made this batch using a shot glass as a template. |
The batch on the left side of the oven cracked and the batch on the right side of the oven didn't.
I'm thinking that my oven is hotter on the left side then the right.
