Boyfriend says you can’t make a gyro without the meat. Challenge accepted…
…and completed. With a bite in his mouth, he’s like “alright, maybe it’s good.”
That’s some high praise right there.
Made with seasoned and grilled shitake mushrooms and tempeh. MmmmMmmmm.
A billion egg whites later…
Horrible little deformed feet, but feet! I was kind of giving up hope that it was possible to make
ugly macarons with stevia.
I’ve still got a long way to go, but at least I know I’m on the right track. Will post once I’ve got something that doesn’t require a bag over its head first.
On macaron batch 4. Still no feet, but the texture is getting there. Maybe I should have tried mastering a regular macaron before attempting sugar-free? Nah.
When shitty things happen during finals week, and you can’t distract yourself from thinking about them (with fun things like teh internets and friends) because you have to study instead
Fuck you, Organic Chemistry. Fuck. You.
you will not defeat me. Bring it on.
Just don’t lord it over me when you do win and I’m left crying in a corner over 17 failed batches, hysterically shoving cracked and ugly macaron shells into my face.
A request? Rock on! I will do my best! Anything in particular you’re looking for?
Woah, just saw this! Hobby Lobby sells ball jars for $1.79 each, which I guess would add up fast. Fortunately, all their glassware happened to be like 70% off last time I went by there so I snagged a bunch of them. I’ve also found them pretty cheap from thrift stores. So other than hoping for a sale or scoping out your local thrift shops, you could really use any old jar that’s about the right size to drink out of (the mix and match of shapes/sizes could be cite). Confession: I actually buy a certain brand of honey and pasta sauce mainly because they come in cool-looking mason jars. I’m stockpiling for the jarpocolypse. Lemme know if you think of/find something else!
My next 3 classes need to recognize that Thanksgiving is too close to continue with lecture. Organic chemistry vs. kitchen chemistry? Yeah, that’s a tough one.
ALL THE FOODS!!!
