It's warm enough to open the windows today! Here's what's I have growing...
Spring is definitely here. Pretty soon I'll have to learn how to cut the grass with that scary machine. But it's not as big and intimidating in France as it is in the States where my father refused to let me do it no matter how much I begged because it was unsafe for little girls. Stay tuned for more on that in a future post...
Obsessed! brought me breakfast in bed after another almost sleepless night slash morning. The main part consisted of potatoes (which I gobbled down before remembering to take a photo.) Also included were an apple, fromage frais, tartines with cheese spread and jam and tea.
I don't know how it's possible that there is still more laundry to do, but there is. So there were lots of stairs again today. And a little indoor cardio. And a short walk with the dog - 2 km.
For lunch I had carbonara as we still had some ingredients and Obsessed! knows how much I love his signature dish.
I spent the afternoon playing piano. I've been searching online everywhere for Rachel Yamagata sheet music with no luck. But then I stumbled upon Sinead O'Conner's (slash Prince's) Nothing Compares 2 U and because it's so easy, I must've played it for 3 hours straight. Yeah, bad idea. I think that song may be permanently embedded into my brain now. I might have to shave my head and wear all black until the day I die. Also, I'm feeling strangely depressed all of a sudden...
Then I was served a yummy salad with corn, rice, cabbage and pickles for dinner before my favorite (okay, second favorite) activity of the day - MAKING SORBET!!
First, I puréed the pears which I had pre-peeled and chopped. Then I put them into the ice-cream maker (notice in the photos how little salt, water and NO ICE is needed in this machine.)
While the pear mush was getting good and icy, I prepared a chocolate sauce and whipped cream.
I melted chocolate and butter together on the stove.
While I was patiently waiting for the sorbet and sauce to finish, I decided to sample the cherry crumble Vapors brought home from her Granny's. It was only about one square inch but it was yummy.
FINALLY, the sorbet was done and OMG it was maybe the best thing I've ever tasted. I thought the pineapple was fantastic last night. It didn't even compare to this. To. Die. For.
