Oh my god they're almost ready

I cook, right? So gradually I have come to accumulate all of those staples like icing sugar, baking soda, soy sauce, sesame oil, sherry, cream of tartar, red wine vinegar, Chinese five spice, bla bla bla. This is an especially nice fact when the damn grocery stores I go to get even more expensive, because as occurred to me yesterday it means that when I run out of food, I can just build some more. For example: I don't have any brownies, even though I would like some, and I don't know where to buy them though I couldn't justify that anyway but wait - I can BUILD some, because I have cocoa powder and flour and eggs. Likewise, I don't have any quiche what I really enjoy but oh yes - I can BUILD one, from the crust up.

If I didn't think I would bore you I would just post about food all the time.

Lady, your oven is like a nuclear inferno of hell. Much like my heart when I'm enraged. Hahahaa. No really, let that be a warning. Ahahhaaa.

Um, enraged because I gave you half a pan of awesome brownies?

No! I'm elated about the brownies. I just wanted to say 'my heart is a nuclear inferno of hell.'

Marianne said...

I hear that. Today is that day, you know what I'm saying?

That picture is great! Tell me you actually took that one!

Also I am applying your method, but with boots. And, in my head, bags.

Lady JESUS CHRIST THE BROWNIES ARE SOOO GOOD, and luckily so rich that I can't eat the whole loaf at once.

I know - I got home and couldn't find them. Apparently I had a psychotic break and put them in the fridge. They're not bad cold, actually.

Phil, what the eff bombs are you talking about? Are you making boots? Yeah, I took that pic.

Marianne said...

K-star, you're irreplaceable. I feel your absence.

Phil said...

Yep. I'm Knitting boots. Then felting them. Also, I'm designing the most awesome bag I can imagine. I would say "stay tuned", but the likelihood of me finishing either of these projects soon is low.
