Yesterday morning I took Amoeba to work, stopped at Criminal Coffee (so good it’s illegal), kept my doctor’s appointment, did my grocery shopping, put the groceries away, tidied my kitchen, and opened the front door so my friend could bring all of her groceries in the house — and we made a chocolate soufflÃ©.Â Well, mostly she did the making and I did the recipe reading (we were using one of Julia Child’s cookbooks, the recipes are written quite clearly, in steps, and include ingredients AND utensils). The recipes are very, very, very detailed and can’t be read as a whole and followed. The sheer volume of information took two brains to process.
Neither of us had ever made a chocolate soufflÃ© and, despite the excellent and detailed instructions, weren’t quite certain what we were doing.Â It came out of the oven looking lovely and tall, but soon fell flat.Â Sigh.Â Still, it tasted quite good.Â I am ashamed to say that despite getting the camera out, neither of us took photographs!
While the soufflÃ© baked my friend and I picked Amoeba up from work (no bike riding yesterday because they were oiling and graveling the roads).Â After my friend left I cooked dinner, tidied the kitchen (my friend had left it spotless so that was an easy clean), then I tucked myself in bed early and finished my novel.
Today I have to do the church newsletter and get the laundry done.Â I’ll be around to visit blogs on my breaks.Â I may take more breaks then I actually do work, so you’ll likely see me soon!
