Nothing to show on the knitting front so here’s some food.
Monday in my baking class we made cake. We had to choose between a carrot cake and a chocolate angel food cake and then our choice of either chocolate or yellow cake. I made both the carrot and chocolate cakes and then had extra time so I whipped up this angel food cake. This is seriously the best angel food cake I’ve ever had. It’s light and fluffy soft. Next week we’re making frosting and cover basic decorating techniques so we’ll frost and decorate our other cakes then.
Today in my savory class, we grilled steaks. I topped mine with some sautéed mushrooms and peppers and we made Duchess potatoes, and then I added some pan fried butternut squash with brown sugar and cinnamon. Next week we have a mystery basket challenge and I’m a little nervous about it, but I’m sure I’ll do fine.
Saturday I went to see my favorite live band, Reverend Horton Heat. This is, seriously, about the twentieth time I’ve seen them and they are always great. The crowd was out of control, it was amazing. I went alone, which I was nervous about doing since I hate doing stuff by myself, but I had a blast and there were a lot of people there than I know, so it all worked out. I really had more fun than I’ve had in years and by the end of the show I was tired, covered in sweat(and not just my own, I swear I was groped more Saturday night than at any other show that I’ve been to, it was ridiculous) and beer(also not my own), and I made out with some guy I don’t know. All in all, a pretty good night. Ha. Then last night I won tickets to a Koffin Kats show in May and I can’t wait, it’s going to be so much fun.
