To be honest, I knew even before baking this recipe that it wasn't going to work for the banquet but I had to try. I like to marble things.
This new baking project is definitely taking me to my happy place, which is probably good because I am simultaneously going crazy. Exciting adventures are about to ensue, but not before loads of papers and forms are filled and filed. I have started, as a result of this craziness, to write down all of my thoughts, lists, reminders and freak outs in a cutesy black leather monogrammed journal I got today. (Hey, if you are going to record your freak outs, might as well put them in a journal that is so formal it tricks people into thinking you have it together, right? Annnnd, since it is monogrammed, if I get forgetful, at least I can always remember my first initial.)
To de-stress, I also have taken to Jillian Micheal's 6-week Six Pack workout video. I just started week 4 and my abs certainly are getting a busting and then some. It has been most excellent, and also a welcome respite from the overly packed gyms from everyone who has decided to partake in New Year's Resolutions this year and that football is more suitable for the gym than the Food Network. Yup, me an Jillian Micheals are gonna be best buds for a while. She's got 3 more weeks to show my core whats up and then I figure the gym will be back to it's previously empty state at 10 pm. Just how I like it.
Alright y'all, this post has now cut into one of my six hours of sleep I planned to get tonight, and I've got to get dreaming of all those sugar plums and such for my banquet in March. To come are many hopefully delightful, decadent and delicious treats as I explore the aesthetics of the pastry world. Its going to be B-E-A-uuuuutiful or so I hope.
P.S. I am feeling a little delirious and pun-y at the moment. I was going to tell you I would keep you "posted" on my adventures in the final paragraph (because a blog entry is called a post) but I avoided it because then it turned into one of those if you have to explain the joke it is no longer funny kind of things but then I couldn't not include it because I had typed-deleted-typed-deleted one too many times and it needed to happen. Thought you should know. Now you do. P.S. rocks for reasons such as these.
