So yesterday’s celebration was mild, as we have two sickos in the house (Thomas and Julia have been coughing and hacking and generally miserable for several days now) and Sarah was at school all day…but I did make her a nice pasta dish (as requested) with white wine sauce, king crab and scallops. She also requested a red velvet cake which I made and the cake itself was great, but something got lost in translation on the icing…I ended up trying to patch it together to make it not so runny but it just was weird…tastes ok, but the consistency was weird and it looks like a cake with problems…again, the taste is still there so we’re good! A red velvet cake is a wonderful cake for Valentines and you can find generally the same recipe anywhere you search online! But be wary of the icing recipe..I used one which called for three tablespoons of flour mixed in 1 cup of milk with 1 cup of butter and 1 cup of sugar and some vanilla…was SUPER runny…so I ended up adding powdered sugar- lots of it…until I got it thicker…
Anyhoot, all that aside, this coming Friday Sarah is having some girlfriends over for dinner and she wanted to buy a bottle of wine to serve them…because she could…Oh man do I feel old…hahahaha…We’ve been kindly asked to disappear for a few hours while her girlfriends are over, so I think we’ll take the five dogs and hang out at the apartment…now, why doesn’t Sarah and her friends hang out at the apartment? Because it’s not as nice as the main house and their friends always have parties in their homes where everything is so nice….so we can’t be any different now can we? I’m going to have to work on the interior of the apartment so it will be “nicer” for future events and I don’t have to go up there but can stay in the comfort of my own home!! hahaha..
We’ve had tons of fog lately, you can see blue skies and sunshine through the fog, but generally a thick thick layer of fog which almost makes you feel like you’re driving or walking in a dream…you can barely see ten feet in front of you, so it’s pretty special…I tried to capture some shots for you but hey, I’m not a pro..what I saw and what I captured were two different things but that is the fun part of this hobby, to keep trying until SOMEDAY you get the shot that looks like what you’re really looking at- or better!
Until next time my friends….
